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.)

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

HOPS:
Columbus, Cascade

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 22oz bomber from my SS. Thanks. Can’t 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 doesn’t like hanging around. While not the most bitter IPA, this goes great with buffalo wings and the combination can be lethal.

Pours and muddy orange-brown amber with a stiff upper-lip for a head (I’m about 15 minutes into a glass and I still have a head). Not as sweet as a Dogfish Head IPA of similar ilk, and slightly less bitter than most over-hopped IPAs. Sweet flowery scent, definitely discernable hop.Malty on the edges of the tongue. A little mehtol in the mouth when you hold it in on a sip. Another Boonville hit here (my fav is the Oatmeal Stout). (Bottle Pour 11/30/2006)

Tap at the Yard House. Very tasty, hoppy IPA. Had some elements from a DIPA, such as a piney taste. Very hoppy, but also a strong malt preesnece. A nice crisp and long finish. Very enjoyable.

HumuloneRed (765) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2006
12 oz. Bottle. Pours a clear medium pale with an off white head and thick lacing. It has a fantastic grapefruit and malt nose to it. It has great grapefruit hoppiness with a good bitter bite that balances a good malt background. Well-made beer.

Bottle. Odd aroma. Not exactly what i was expecting. Good size head that thins a little and stays. Falvor is decent. Warmed up on me near the end. Decently smooth.

Clear light amber leaning towards golden. Head is medium in size and offwhite in color. Lacing is nothing special. Quite expressive, even perfumed nose of jasmine, citrus, a hint of tobacco, and malt in the background. Lively and bright but also fairly rich in the mouth, with a wonderfully pleasant sensation of oranges. A tiny bit of sweet malt keeps it from going off the hoppy deep end. The finish is long and ibtter. An IPA that really tells you a lot on the nose and does a lot in the mouth. A very satisfying drink.

Woo nelly the first sip is a real kicker, but smooths out in a nice little flavor cycle. The pour is a clear amber; small head fades. Nice piney hop punch that pleases me since this is my favorite style.

Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 (Bottle) Pours hazy amber.Fruity, piney hop aroma with some rasin and honey sweet malt. Fruity, piney bitter hops in flavour with rasin and citrus. Some raisins. Well balanced body with a good afterbitterness. A nice IPA.
