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.)

Pretty good - nice and piney aroma and taste. Not as hoppy as I normally prefer but all around a good well balanced IPA.

Bottle from Daanens in Hayden, ID. Pours a coppery brown color, slightly cloudy, and a good beige head. Smells very aromatic with hints of pine, resin, yeast, and grapefruit and just enough of malt sweetness. Taste is of slight caramel with a very big hop presence. This has a nice resin taste and good pine and grapefruit. The hop flavor has a very nice lingering and each sip just brings more of the same. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 An excellent IPA. The hop flavor is well complemented by malts, it does not seem overpowering at all. The taste is hoppy with a sweet honey malt presence. Very complex and enjoyable. Lasting finish.

This copper ale poured with a short off-white head. It is hoppier than I would prefer in an IPA, but the flavor is nicely complex.

This is my second favorite IPA -- next to The White Knuckle by Marin Brewing. What else can I say, totally unique flavor, wicked cool "beer" on the label, solar powered brewery.

RedXIII (127) - Powell, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2007
poured a golden-orange color, hazy with a weak white head that quickley disappeared. Aroma is what made it for me with a strong inhale of pine, hops and maybe some grapefruit. A florally taste with a sharp lasting bitter finish, this was a solid IPA.

LennyH (60) - Delaware, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Pours a hazy copper color. Hoppy, pine, resin, aroma which hints at the dryness of this brew. This is a solid IPA, but its characteristics differ from my favorites. Ill pick up a 6 of this once in a while, though.

asedzie (796) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 9, 2007
Bottle. Pours copper with a huge, two-finger beige head. Aroma is beautiful hops - juniper, pine and fragrant flower pollen. with notes of roasted malt. Flavor sweaty yeast, earthy blissfully bitter hops and some lightly sweet and fruit caramel malt. Finish has lots of resinous hop bitterness which lingers on forever. Extremely full palate. Beautiful... just beautiful. This is the epitome of a N. Cali IPA.

Bottle. Earthy hoppy aroma. A bitter finish with heavy hop body. A great taste with a nice aroma.

Soft, well balanced IPA. I always look for crazy hopped IPAs but this is nice and very enjoyable.
