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

Very nice. Yes, I am a hophead. Hops are in abundance here. Taste is superb with a good balance between sweetness and hops.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Pours a hazy amber colour with one of the most impressive head I have ever seen. A frothy rocky mountain large off white head. Retention is phenominal as it heavily laces the sides of the glass. Aroma of grapefruit hops, pine, metallic, soap and some malts. Initial taste of syrupy sweet malts balanced by bitter hops. Finishing with bitter hops and mild caramel malts. Medium body, palate duration is good. Very drinkable and most definitely presentable.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Piney citrus aroma with notes of honey in the aroma. Pours pale amber. Piney, a little catty up front, sweet malts and citrus hops round out the flavors. Over-all a very enjoyable and drinkable IPA.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 14, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours very cloudy tangerine color with a small, compact, soapy white head. Strong aroma of bitter hops. Earth, pine with a big honey-like malt background underneath. Intense though the hops dont smell that good. Taste is better. Creamy mouthfeel at first then a tingly, bitter citrusy hop flavor with a cereal malty finish. Nice body. Fairly complex flavor. With the exception of a pretty dull aroma this one was pretty good.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 13, 2007
12oz bottle poured in a lager glass. This beer pours golden and hazy with a miraculous head that is just the right size and leaves a surprisingly good lace. It smells very odd though. Its flowery with honey, cotton candy and canned peaches. The description fits it pretty good. It starts off sweet and floral but ends sharp and bitter. The bitter isnt like bile though, its not really spicy. It exhibits a touch of oily resin. The finish is medium dry. This is a complex beer that isnt easily defined. Its worth trying this beer for the experience. This is one of the first beers I ever tried after deciding to keep track of them. That was about five years ago. This is the first time Im revisiting it. Im increasing my score on it (not a ratebeer score).

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 9, 2007
A carmelly aroma, deep amber color, and very sour taste at finish. I agree with a prior review that it is missing some initial flavor at first sip. Overall, a pretty nice IPA

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2007
bottle. above average tan head (lasted until last sip) into clear amber body with good lacing. strong aromas of juicy semi-sweet grapefruits and light caramel. flavor is sweet then a ruh of light to moderate bitterness. moderate length to finish. not my favorite, but a good ipa.

decaturstevo (6203) - 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 (623) - 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 (8557) - 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.
