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

pretty standard IPA, nothing really jumps out as being extraordinary or even interesting, its good but lacks any sort of character or anything to make it stand out against the rest of its indian brethren. drank this one while some sketchy freaky guy pretended to puke habenero peppers and freaked out the woman who was working next door alone, she gave me a stone bomber in return for staying there while the creep show did his creepy show

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 12 oz bottle via Liquid Solutions. Pours a clear copper with a large head. Nose has lots of pine and grapefruit. Taste is the same as the aroma, with a crisp dry finish. Bittersweet resiny aftertaste. Thick mouthfeel. Full bodied. This is quite tastey and very drinkable if you like tons of resiny hops.

rayg1 (593) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Samples at the World Beer Festival in Durham, NC. Nice amber color and one hell of a thick head with great lacing. Big strong floral bite from the hops with awesome bitterness to finish.

freekyp (2088) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 Deep amber with a thick white head that near coats the sides of the glass. Strong floral aroma with a blueberry fruitiness zaps the nose at the first whiff. Medium bodied with bitterness rising quickly to a crescendo at the finish, then sticking around for a good long while in the fade. A malt backbone with girth keeps the hops in check while the soft slick palate and active carbonation that scrapes the tongue makes this one a real winner.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2006
My favorite style but this is middling and seem over rated. Nothing stood out, but I enjoyed it. Complared to tope IPAs this is little watery, lacked hops, and bite/character.

Bottle. Dark golden coloured with a huge off-white head. Somewhat malty with notes of spices, pines, flowers and of course hops.

Beer5000 (6270) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2006
12 oz bottle. Classic orange body with nice white head. Strong citrus and grapefruit aroma. This is a relatively mild, harmonic ale with a heavy dose of hops. Long and quite bitter finish. The IBU might be a little bit to much compared to the comparatively mild body itself. But somehow the alcohol level ads up, and I found this beer a really refresher during the hot Californian afternoons. This is also a god match for barbeque.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Bottle. Pours a orange/copper color with a nice tan head. The pour on this was magnificient. It was begging to be picked up and consumed. Probably one of the best IPA appereances I have had to date. Aroma is hops, mostly a floral aroma, grapefruit and pine in there also. A malt aroma is lingering as well. Flavor is a bitter hop taste up front finished off with a malt undertone to give it a great balance. A pretty decent IPA that leaves me quite satisfied.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle. Poured clear orange/copper with a thick bumpy head and craggy lacing. Aroma of cookie-like caramel malt, floral/citrus/piney hops and honey. Big malt/hop bomb flavor, amped up on both sides, with the hops coming through on the end in a big way. Medium palate, with a bit of carbonation. I can actually sense some of the alcohol in both the aroma and flavor as well, though the ABV is not that of an imperial. Nice bitter hop aftertaste. Overall pretty good.
