Hopheads rejoice! This strong IPA takes the style to a new level. It’s a big Imperial IPA packed with Nugget, Palisade, and Amarillo hops. Previously 8.2%.

Growler from JasonMech77 (that I had to drink myself...sweet) Poured a hazy amber color with a meidum sized off-white head. Big dry hop aroma of citrus, pine, tangerines, and some earthy notes. The hops pretty much covers up the malt. There was even a light hint of chocolate. The flavor was hop foward with citrus and pine. Some caramel maltiness showed itself at the finish. Nice amount of bittness back bone that gives this beer a great balance. Some warmth from the beer but the alcohol is hidden very well. Other than the fact that it is starting to kick my ass. Very nicely done and very drinkable.

Orange-amber body with a faint haze and a receding off-white head. Wonderful fresh hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, mango, cedar, and sweet crystal malt with a quality almost like maple. Great malt character for a DIPA; comes across like an imperial red. Nice fresh hop flavors and aggressive, scouring bitterness. Terrific beer that reminds me that very few beers beat a fresh DIPA from a high quality brewpub.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 The best beer I’ve had at ottos had a sample and had to buy a pint. Nose is a bouquet of floral hops and grapefruit with some spiceness. Dark copper color. Its a hop bomb. great oily texture that goes down smooth. grapefruit notes in the taste nice malt balance. really good impy ipa

Growler from the brewpub. Pours a dark amber coppery color with a thin white head. Aroma is of fresh wet east coast pine needles and plenty of hops. Flavor is piney with a slight malty aftertaste, Excellent overall.

An Ottos staple, this is fantastic. The ABV is high, but the actual hop bitterness isn’t quite where I expected. Still, the flavor is a mix of citrus and greens, and it’s delicious. A must-have.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Draft. Smooth Imperial! Great aroma, perfect color. Flavor is fantastic but lite. Same great taste almost each sip and a nice head to it. The alcohol level is well hidden. One of Otto’s best. Cheers! Update: Same great grapefruit tones. Very smooth IPA with alcohol still well hidden.

Marijuana all over this one. In the aroma and it tasted like I had a super skunky nugget in my mouth. More over, the pine and resin is what dominated the aroma, giving it that herbal quality. Taste was piney, with also lots of citrus and bitterness as well.

Excellent IPA by Otto’s. Since I’m a Hop Head, this was right up my alley. Beautiful color and flavor. Strong shot of alcohol involved here. Don’t drink this and drive.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2005 Update: Had again when dry-hopped with amarillo and it makes it even better. This is an outstanding DIPA. My first beer at HBF, so I can remember it pretty well. The brewers said that it is made mostly with centennial cascade and chinook, which give it an excellent american citrus/piney flavor and aroma. The alcohol was very well hidden. Great IIPA.

Sampled draft at the Harrisburg Brewer’s Fest. Good IPA not a Imperial IPA. Nice hop bite to it. Besides that tasted like an IPA
