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.)

Saeglopur (1435) - Vienna Woods, - APR 9, 2014
Can from AmmersinO, Vienna. Clear, amber body, with a big, frothy, slightly yellow head, that leaves a nice ring-shaped lacing. Interesting aroma of jelly roll with apricot, peach, grapefruit, flowers, pine. Tastes of citrus, strawberry, peach, pine, with a tasty, smooth malt backbone of biscuit, bubblegum, honey and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a decent carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, dry, also a bit sweet, with fruity, piney and malty notes. Really tasty! A distinct IPA, perfectly balanced, with nice, uncommon fruit notes and most of all really great malt notes! It doesn’t have the most aggressive hop bite, but if offers a pleasant complexity instead.

ZodiacM (505) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
Flu/cold still effecting my nose and taste, but there is a nice sweetnees and bitterness I’m getting from this IPA. Also some malt but the fruit and hoppiness I can’t smell, must be there, but nose and taste still not optimal for enjoying the finer tastes of this beer.

Panzerfaust (719) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JAN 29, 2016
355 ml can from Club de Cervezas. Pours a mostly clear dark orange/amber color with a big white fluffy head that diminishes slowly and leaves a nice film. Aroma is pretty impressive with clean hops and some potent malt sugars mixing up to give a powerful fruity nose. Notes of grapefruit followed up by orange, tangerines, leaf, hay a bit of honey and watermelon. Taste is bitter with marginal grainy and fruity sweetness giving some counterbalance. Grapefruit flavors dominate throughout. It leaves a long herbal bitter aftertaste. Delicious. Medium body. Alcohol is high but it gives only a minmal warming hint. Carbonation is soft. Would it be better with some extra prickliness? I think so. It’s a delightful and intense straight-forward and fruity American IPA.

Pours a thick white head with nice aromas of hops. Clear copper colored body. Very bitter. Good thickness, warmth and length. Good with appetizers or cheese. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bnoel09 (565) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Poured from the 12oz bottle into a snifter. Amber with a cream colored head. Aroma is bready with some molasses and floral hops. Flavor is similar with some bready malt up front combined with a mild earthy sweetness and finishing with some floral and lightly spicy hops. Medium bodied with a long finish. Solid IPA.

ferrinche (51) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - JAN 13, 2016
Tiene todo lo que se le pide a una buena IPA, predominando el sabor a lúpulo pero sin desequilibrarla. De alta graduación, pero sin rastro de sabor alcohólico. La apariencia es también la esperada, con dedo y medio de espuma, que permanece hasta el final. Muy recomendable, además es relativamente fácil de encontrar en tiendas especializadas.

weordie (568) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Pours copper with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is toffee, caramel but not much hops, must have died by the time I got the bottle. A very nice beer, sweet honey malts, not a great deal of bitterness. For a 7% beer it tastes more like a session IPA.

shrubber85 (9625) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Can. Orange/peach malt and tinny grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with huge head. Very sweet orange/apricot, caramel malt, and moderately strong bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Decent body. A bit too sweet with harsh hop flavor.
