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.)

bosta (97) - - AUG 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Copper color, with medium head. Very nice aroma of resins, apricot and dry fruits. Flavour is a bit disappointing since it doesn’t follow aroma. Bitter-sweet taste, with a bitter aftertaste.

Pore clear, copper in colour. White head, small bubbles, good head retention. Smells hoppy and slightly malty, consistent with style. Floral, piney and grapefruit flavours. Not sweet. Really nice mouthfeel. Medium body, med-highly carbonated, slightly astringent, but right on the nose for IPAs. Aftertaste is a bit harsh with the bitter finish. Poured into a glass from a 355ml can.

janubio (367) - SPAIN - APR 22, 2014
355 ml. bottle. The label reminds me of Northern Exposure series :-) Amber colour, medium h ead that last long enough to leave a great lace. Smell of tropical fruits, pine, tea - or is that tobacco? Medium to full body, sticking in the tongue. Taste of tropical fruits, tea leaves, pine, notes of citrus and caramel. Great.

Clear amber color with a decent beige head good lasting and lacing - Aroma is citrusy, caramel, dried raisin , plum, grapefruit - flavor is citrusy, caramel, plum, pine, resinous hops - medium body, medium/high bitterness, good carbonation, light dryness, bitter caramel finish - good malt backbone but not well balanced, bitterness too aggressive

stevoj (1707) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 17, 2014
Hops rule in this brew, pours with high, rocky head. Very tart, sharp bitterness, dry mouthfeel and finish. A big, bold IPA

shorlin (590) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Grapefruit and pine aroma. Not too overwhelming. Hazy amber with solid head. Taste has some sweetness but not killer bitter. Overall pretty good IPA. Not as big or dry as I expected.

JeyAre (77) - - APR 16, 2014
Great golden colour wroth nice thick white head. The aroma is hoppy South some kind of creamy nuance on top. The taste is soft as well as the palate. The after taste grows into much more hoppyness and bitterness. Overall a very good IPA.

bbbeer (543) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2014
Orange with small off white head. Aroma citrus hops, grassy, some malt. Medium body. Flavor bitter but not overly so. Citrus hops mostly. Sweeter maltier finish. Decent balance, drinkable, nothing stands out really.

w_adwersarz (59) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 15, 2014
Ziołowo miodowe aromaty z karmelem, grejpfrutowa skórka. Koloru ciemnej pomarańczy. Piana landa, trochę wymuszona, pięknie oblepia szkło. Raczej wytrawne, z odrobiną wyczuwalnych słodów, goryczka ziołowo trawiasta i konkretna

Stizz19 (35) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Poured from a bomber. Pours dark orange with a 1inch thick head. Smells citruisy/hoppy. Taste the citruis quite a bit with a nice hop flavour as well. Good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gEUS (895) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours deep orange with an amber hue. Small clear soapy head, good retention. Nose is well balanced between pine and citrus, misses a bit more intensity. Medium body, nice creamy and sweet mouthfeel. perfect soft carbo, bitterness kicks in at the end, leaves a bit an unpleasant sour touch as well.
