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.)

Veer (362) - Landskrona, - FEB 3, 2010
Aroma: lovely hops aroma of grapefruit, juniper berries and pines needles. Sourish with vanillalike sweet malt, yellow raisins, and a mineral quality. A weak hint of fennel seeds (Im guessing its from the fermentation). Just beautiful.
Flavour: initially not very bitter. The soapy bitterness comes after a few seconds and is accompanied by a malt sweetness that stays in the background. Almost meaty. The astringency is pleasant and nicely surprising.
Appearance: warm amber, clear body with some frothy yellowish foam that leaves a film over the beer once the head has set.
Palate: not bad at all! Fizzy, but not overly so. Pleasant, oily and refreshing.

Fat på Flying Scotsman. Klar bärnsten med vitt skum. Doftar blommigt och mycket honung. Kraftig smak av karamell med ett honungstäcke. Spännande, men inte min typ av IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (698) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2015
Crack the top off the can & pour it in the glass. Its a deep orange with a beautiful rocky cap. What makes this IPA stand out from the numerous others that I am pounding back this holiday week -- all in the the name of research, not to worry -- is bait & switch it does on you. The taste opens with sweet malts & makes you think this is going to be a malt bomb IPA. But then just before the finish, a wave of hoppy bitterness washes over everything. My suspicion is that this can has been collecting dust on the shelf longer than it should & yet this is still a fantastic rendition of the style. Cheers.

Can bought at Seoul Plaza in Bratislava/Slovakia. A very tasty malty IPA with a lot of malt and fruit in aroma and taste. Tasty hops with a pleasant hoppy longlasting finish. Refreshing. Balanced. Anytime again!

willisread (388) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 11, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from old town. Nose is fruity with biscuity and sweet malty aromas present. Theres only a slight hint of resiny hops on the nose. Fairly sweet and malty with bits of pine coming out. Well-balanced though a little sweet. Reminds me of a British styled pale. Good stuff.

Bottle. very interesting IPA. Pours hazy dark orange with stable, medium, white head. Aromas not so typical for this style as red fruits and sticky caramel dominates the nose. There might be some grapefruit in the background but the beer resembles Belgian Triple a bit. The taste is also much on the sweet side with coniferous bitterness crawling in the background but of medium power. Sticky texture and medium to full body, yet not overpowering bitterness and good drinkability as a result. Im not sure if this really suits the style but overall, it is a very good beer which I enjoy drinking so why not give it a try?

callmemickey (3241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Dark orange colored body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Huge biscuit malt presence with some piney, citric, and resinous hop notes. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation, semi-sweet throughout, muddled bitterness.
