COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop-Heads, your dreams have come true! Hop Ottin' is Boontling for "hardworking hops," and they're surely hard at work in this brew. Hop Ottin' starts with a strong floral aroma, which winds into a deep and complex body. In an intriguing balance, honey-drenched malts coat rich hop undertones. At length, the hops prevail, with a satisfyingly crisp finish. Hop Ottin' bites like a cankicky bluetail (Hop Ottin' bites like a rattlesnake looking for a fight.)

Bière ambrée d’inspiration anglaise à la robe cuivrée et au col mince offrant un fort nez herbacé dominé par des effluves surette de pin puis de malt biscuité, de caramel. C’est une gorgée bien malté qui remplit la bouche avec des saveurs sirupeuses moyennement surettes accompagnées d’un malt quasi panifié et granuleux apporté par la levure épicée moyenne. Belle amertume accompagnant toute la dégustation finissant sur une gentille longueur avec des notes minérales et herbacées moyennement acres. Sympa parce que de facture fort classique.

Backlog. Tried bottled a couple of times. Your standard west-coast IPA, nothing exciting.

Pours amber with a decent white head. Aroma is floral, honey, pine, and malt. Flavor is nice, well balanced malt sweetness with a strong hop punch. Medium body, a bit overly bitter, but a pretty nice beer.

Bottle at local bottle shop. Pours clear with tiny head that leaves nice laces till the end. Not much aroma asides from caramel malts. In taste a great balance of malt and hops with an adequate bitterness and a cooling aftertaste. Cool, session beer.

50cl butelka. OCZY : piwo ma ciemny pomarańczowy kolor i małą, brudną białą piane. NOS : mocny zapach tarty wiśniowej idzie w parze z herbato podobnymi nutami chmieli. Po lekkim wzburzeniu piwa dostrzegam bogate nuty cytrusów i trawy. Delikatnie wyczuwam zapach podobny do piernika. USTA : lekko gazowane o kremowej konsystencji. Piwo ma sporą obecność słodu o nutach piernika, tarty i karmelu. Jest słodkie ale również bardzo gorzkie. Najpierw wyczuwam smak w rodzaju mocnej herbaty. Następnie dochodzi umiarkowana kwaśność podobna do gotowanych wiśni. Na końcu i w posmaku, który jest mocny i trwały, gorzkość dominuje. Podobna jest do pestek cytrusowych i gorzkiej herbaty. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest mocne pod każdym względem. Ze względu na spory alkohol i grube nuty słodowe bardziej przypomina Imperial IPe. Ciekawe piwo ale mało subtelne. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 5/10

Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a one inch frothy beige head. The nose is nice as far as the hops go, citrusy and piney, fairly heavy. The malt isn’t so good though, smells like lots of crystal malt one here. The flavor bears that out pretty much. Really sweet with lots of iced tea and brown sugar sweetness. Some moderate bitterness and citrus, but they just can’t compete with the sweetness. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a sticky sweet finish under the hops. Not my taste as far as the style goes.
