COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop-Heads, your dreams have come true! Hop Ottin is Boontling for "hardworking hops," and theyre 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.)

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Crystal (40L), Munich (20L)

HOPS:
Columbus, Cascade

decaturstevo (6017) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2007
An almost cherry red pour with nice gooey lacing. A good hop aroma but no where near over the top. Good maltiness and a really pleasant finishing bitter that refuses to give up the ghost. Solid carbonation mouthfeel is just a tiny bit thin. Soldid beer all round. I liked the bitter finish. It jsut misses a little something on the front of the flavor.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy cinnibar, tall frothy head and gauzy lace. Upfront butterscotch and grapefruit scents; also pine, lime, and (wtf?) milk chocolate. Resiny hop, saltines, and sour fruity (green apple and gooseberry?) flavor is immediately overwhelmed by a charred wood finish and lasting charcoal/ashtray bitterness. Watery texture, sharply fizzy. This beer is all over the place with conflicting flavors. Really rough.

Ibrew2or3 (8392) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2007
On draft @ The Yard House in San Diego that pours out deep copper with white head and nice lacing. It has the standard citrus, mild sweet malt and grapefruit hop aroma. The taste starts with a nice bolt of grapefruit and mild sweet malts with some caramelization. Then midway an annoying metal hop note defaced the whole experience. I guess they dont keep the tap lines clean enough at this place.

Tastes of sweet citrus hops and honey. Floral aroma. Well hopped brew. This is my favorite beer from anderson valley. Good session beer.

scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Smells citrusy and hopsy. Good head retention. Grapefruit taste throughout, hopsy but not to strong. I faintly detect a sweetness but very faint. Good.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Orange pour with a decent white head. Big floral hoppy nose. Citrusy hops up front with a milder malt back. Sweeter than expected, and rich with hop character. Excellent.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Pours copper/amber and slightly hazy with a thin white head. Smells of pepper, tea, some citrus and some meadow like qualities. Tastes of dry malt, biscuits and pronounced pepper/spice from the hops. Nice.

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Big hop aroma with some caramel/malt. More malty than I care for in an IPA with a solid smooth mouth feel.
