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.)

Stevesie (329) - - JAN 27, 2013
From bottle. Hazy dark orange pour with minimal but lingering off-white head. Very nice lacing. Active carbonation. Lots of hops in the nose dominated by clean pine. Bitter throughout with just enough maltiness. Maybe a touch of grapefruit to add a little sweetness. Crisp, biting finish. Easily one of my favorite readily available beers, though I prefer the cans to the bottles.

Jonb5 (393) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2014
12 fluid ounce can, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Golden, slightly hazy, medium sized rocky head, with a slight tan, moderate retention. S: West coast hops and citrus fruits, slight cocoa. T: Started out with some strawberry like sweetness, this was quickly countered by grapefruit which lent bitterness which lingered, also had some burnt malt and gummi bears. M: Light body, crisp, moderate carbonation. O: Can’t really add to what has been said, well made, balanced but one of a croud.

Harkyto (48) - barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 14, 2014
Buena espuma y color ambar. Fuerte aroma a miel, resina y pino. En boca se percibe la miel y un amargor de resina y pino. Se percibe el dulzor de las maltas caramelo y miel + el amargor del lúpulo

Chopper925 (191) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color. Floral, malty nose, very nice. Taste is decent sweet and comes with a harsh bitterness in the end. Good palate, medium body and fresh, light carbonation. Aftertaste is soury, floral, resin and a bit roast malt. Nice one!

Gerbeer (1992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
On tap. Pours a dark Amber with moderate head. Aromas of caramel, sweet malts and light pine. Flavors of orange marmalade, toffee, pine and toasted malts. Pretty good balance.

Fukito (779) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 6, 2014
Clear shinny dark golden with a small white head. Aroma piney cascade hops with a resinous and caramel touch. Flavor is bittersweet with some piney notes and caramel notes, a bit oxidized and sticky. Medium to light palate. Nice IPA, but a bit heavy on the caramel malts and somewhat unidimensional.

Bière ayant une légère odeur de miel. Goût houblonné. Un IPA classique. Pas mauvais mais sans intérêt particulier

Ulysse (121) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 9, 2014
Honey aroma. Very low carbonation. Dry bitterness with some honey. Nothing that would make this IPA different. Just standard IPA.

Diabobale (239) - ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Bevuta alla spina. Colore arancio con riflessi ramati, schiuma abbondante, molto corposa con sentori di biscotto e caramello, al gusto i malti della west coast la fanno da padroni. Persistenza molto lunga ma non fastidiosa

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a massive off white head that settles into a meringue cloud. Aroma is of big pine, citrus and grapefruit stands out. The taste has a great balance of pine, resin , caramel, sugar, and citrus. Has a dry light herbal finish with a medium body and low carbonation. This is very sessionable and has a great amount of comfortable bitterness. Right on the money.
