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

Excelleny IPA. Very crispy hop flavor. Sweet enough to cover the alcohol. Smooth enough to enjoy and a great finish that you can enjoy.

Bottle. Strong grapefruit, pineapple, lychee, and resin aroma, bittersweet and heavy. Clear orange with a foamy and fizzly tan head. Nice bready bitterness with grapefruit and resin, honey, lots of hops here. Medium body just doesnt have a lot of oomph; dry hoppy aftertaste. Soft and warming. Really not sure how I feel about this guy; if I were in a different mood, it could conceivably score a a 3.9 or 4.0. Not a bad choice for a hops fix.

Couleur rousse cuivre. La mousse laisse apparatre de belles grosses bulles, mais celle-ci nest pas trs tenace. Trs belle odeur houblonne un brin florale. En bouche, lamertume se fait trs trs prsente et on observe une certaine rondeur. Lamertume laisse sa place sur la langue longtemps aprs la dgustation. Lalcool fait sentir sa prsence.

Poured picture perfect- Most notable is the longevity of the body. Lots of carbonation, but its not mouth shocking. Taste is smoother than the aroma and just as flavorful. Great balance in this delicious smelling and tasting quality brew. Nice work AVBC-

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 12oz bottle. i have no idea how fresh this is. pours a golden color with nice fluffy head. aroma is weak mild pnw hops that seem stale possibly some cat piss in there. the aroma leads me to believe this beer maybe old. flavor also has weak hop presence mild bitterness. the get some points for being balanced and easy to drink. ill have to rerate cuz i bought this as a single in an unfamilar store so im guessing this is past its prime.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Cloudy amber color with small head. Earthy floral aroma. Flavor was big on hops -- ranging from citrus to bitter, with a mild caramel and malt in the background. Very nice IPA.

I dont catch much in aroma or taste besides hop bitterness---which is very well done and lingering. Clear amber color.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 22oz bomber from my SS. Thanks. Cant believe I have not rated this as this used to be one my staple 6 pacls. Incredibly pungent floral hop aroma. Flavor is equally hoppy, a little bit of honey, and a dry bitter palate. A well done hop-heavy ipa. Remembering why I liked this so much, not as tangy as stone or alesmith , but very nice in its own manner.

One of my favorite all time IPAs. This is one I prefer on tap, but the bottle is great also. After one sip your taste buds will beg you to quit. The burnt orange haze creates a beutiful off white head that doesnt like hanging around. While not the most bitter IPA, this goes great with buffalo wings and the combination can be lethal.
