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

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.

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.

Bottle from trade with realale420. Thanks Brian! Pours a nice light copper color with a medium size white head. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and pine. Taste of hops and more hops. Has a pleasent bitter flavor that last all the way to the bottom of the bottle and then some. Good IPA!

12 oz bottle in flute glass. Wonderfull aroma, Columbus or possibly centennial with hint of cascade. Obviously very citrusy with that description. Slight alcohol overtones and a noticeable hint of yeast phenolics as it warms. Malt understated. Slight raison character shine through. Beautiful appearance, crystal light pale, no haze of noticce. Flavor hop bite, perhaps too much cascade initially but mellows after first drink. Slightly hot flavor as it warms but not overpowering. Dry citrus flavor. Wouldnt mind a little more sweetness. Very good beer. It is still the best commercial IPA I have found. And I really enjoy Stone.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 5, 2006
12oz bottle poured a clear orange color with a huge rocky off white head. Aroma had large amounts of citrus hops along with some sweet caramel. The taste had a big piney bitterness with a huge amount of hop flavor alongside a dry finish. Overall this IPA has a more powerful hop punch than most others.

Best hop flavor of any beer I have tried. Fruity hops, bitter, light color, great finish, very enjoyable. My favorite for about 6 months.

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.

billk (353) - Coeur dAlene, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2006
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.

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
