3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice looking, lightly coppery and clear with a very nice two finger head that lasted and left sheets of thick, sticky lacing down all sides of the glass.
Aroma is nice and hoppy, but there’s a nearly equal aroma from the malt base. Some caramel malt makes it way through, then earthy hops.
The taste is also pretty well balanced, but slightly skewed towards the hops. I like the malt base, it’s flavorful and the body is pretty full, but it doesn’t overpower the hops. Plenty of hops flavors assault your tongue when you drink this, I get an earthy hops presence first, then some citrus and pine.
Drinkability is high, as this one goes down pretty easy despite the medium body and strong hop bitterness finish.
They did a good job on this beer. I will have to try more beers from this brewer.

Di colore arancio ramato, bel cappello di schiuma compatto nel bicchiere. Molto ben bilanciata con aroma citrico e resinoso. Gran bel finale per gli amanti del luppolo. Da provare per chi ama le IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, pours a orangish copper color with a thick fluffy white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of pine, citrus and caramel. Tastes of all the same thing’s in the smell with a slight honey flavor and a good hop bite in the back end. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with great carbonation. Overall this is one of the best balanced ipas I’ve had. As far as flavor goes it is pretty average.

Pours a nice orange honey color with a light tan cap. Rich foam with hoppy goodness. Smell is faint hops and malt. Flavor... The name says it all. It is loaded with hops with notes of apple and toffee. I would definitely recommend HopOttin. It is very rich and bold. Worth the buy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear copper with a very tall pillowy cap that leaves behind roapy lacing on every sip. Oooooooo that smells nice!! Hard lemon candy, earthy caramel, sponge toffee. The aroma is mellow yet full. Light but full taste. Caramel, big hops, peach, lemon, leather, lots of yum. So thirsty, so I’m drinking fast and forgetting to pay attention. Brew has a heavy sweetness that sneaks up on you. Why did I just smell popcorn? Easy to jug brew with no faults.
