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

Draft at the Parkways Day of IPAs. Pours dark straw with a small white head. Medium carbonation. Light malt backbone to the flavor profile, bodys on the light side of medium. Huge crisp finish with a sneaky lingering bitter aftertaste. Great beer.

Tap. Hazy amber w ow head that fell away to a thin film rather quickly, min lace. Aroma of fresh resinous hops & medium roasted malt. Flavor is somewhat sour, medium roasted caramel malt with moderate hop flavor and full hop bitterness esp on the finish. Unbalanced to the bittering hops IMO. It is well into medium bodied however and is an OK selection.

BuckeyeBoy (6344) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 12, 2006
12 oz Bottle Pours out a almost a copper orange with a off white head. The Aroma is GREAT. I was thinking a GREAT hop bit when I took a drink it was not as powerfull as I had hoped. Over all a good IPA

its good...but the flavor is very elusive, it just doesnt seem to sit on the palate long enough before its overpowered by the bitterness.

Nice aroma, nice orange color. Theres a good hop bite to this with a small hint of citrus and a good dose of floral. Clean finish. Not a bad IPA

adrian910ss (2570) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Pours a caramel coppery orange color with a medium sized white lacing of a head. Aroma is of slightly piney hops with hints of spring flowers and tangerine citrus. Taste is pleasantly hoppy with a slight piney overtone and citrus. Very good IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 Bottle. Dark orange color, large lasting khaki head, complex aroma of pine, grass, orange, raspberry maybe? Extremely bitter, some citrus hops shine through and slight malts, clean, crisp, almost astringent finish. A little more intense than most of its west coast brothers and sisters.

bubbleflubber (2176) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Pours caramel-orange into the glass, with a nice frothy head and awesome sticky suds lacing. The nose is complex, of caramel, pine and citrus/light grapefruit. The flavors dwell less on the malt contingency, and more on the hop notes. There is some Cascade and pine resin heavily in the finish. The mouthfeel is sticky, oily and refreshingly medium-round. Goes well on the palate, and a well-rounded IPA offering here.

First, I am not a hoppy kind of guy, but this is good beer. Pours a beautiful cloudy orange color. The nose is crisp and hoppy but not overly so and the orange just begs for summer drinking. The flavor is hop head heaven but very balanced and not overdone. The beer is refreshing and clean on the palate without a bitter aftertaste. These guys know how to make beer.

This is a fantastic approachable IPA. Appearance: Pours a orange-ish color with a foamy off white head and decent lacing. Smell: I liked this aroma so much I accidentally snorted it up my nose LOL oops! A fruity aroma of orange and a drip of pine oil sit on top of a sweet malt aroma. Very enticing. Taste: This is only the 3rd beer I have ever had from Anderson Valley Brewing Company. All I have to say is *Where have you been all my life!* Three for three have been spot on fantastic! To start this beer is super smooth. It enters the mouth fruity and juicy. It has a nice balance citrus orange drink flavor and pine hop grapefruit bite. It is balanced with a sweet candy malt undertone. The aftertaste is the best of all. The grapefruit clings to your palate relentlessly but not obtrusively. mmm. It just begs you to take the next sip. I *LOVE* this fruity hop flavor. WOW! Mouthfeel: The beer has a brilliant solid malt backbone in addition to the Hop-Heads dream bite. Drinkability: You would *never* know this beer is 7% ABV. It just goes down so easily. I finished my beer before I could finish writing these words. This beer was a generous gift from a great friend. Next time I will buy much more than one! =) Hope this is helpful. Cheers!
