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

Thanks to another great guy on this site: Odeed aka Jacob.Pours a copper color with a thin line of foam around the rim. Nose is way more hoppy than you might expect from a IPA, more like an IIPA. Bitter on the tongue right away... no mistaking this for anything else but an IPA. Very refreshing. Thanks Odeed.

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2006
Hoppy, but sweet aroma; great balance. Very nice dark amber with sllight haze. Steady, pervasive carbonation. Off white/yellowish head. Great body color. Rich hop flavor; piney. Very well balanced. Excellent. I might confuse this with the big boy IPAs if tasting it blind.

alobar (3631) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2006
Amber color with a beige head. Aroma of hops and some malts. Taste was bitter with a dry fruity aftertaste. Bitterness did hang around for a while. A strong IPA.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2006
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Medium amber color with offwhite head. Soapy, citrusy, and piney hops in the nose. Well balanced flavors of light-medium malt, pungent citrusy hops, and bitter hops. Slightly bitter/sticky finish. Nothing all that outstanding, but a solid drinkin IPA. Surprised at the 7%-- its well-hidden.

hayduke (5032) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 6, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2009 22 oz Bottle. Copper colored with a huge tan head the lasted forever. Aroma is mostly hops with a tinge of fruit and flowers. Decent palate, and good flavor. Nice to the last drop. Overall this is a winner for an IPA.

Bomber poured a clear copper with a lasting amber head. Aromas of pine, earthy hops, and carmel. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavors of earthy hops, pine, carmel and a hint of vanilla with a crip, dry, bitter finish.

I sell the hell out of this IPA and I figured Id give it a whirl. The aroma is nice and sharp with a good amout of hops bite. The pour gives you a good red-amber color with an everpresent lace-like head, The taste is sweeter han I expected with a good hop blend. The hops feel good and dry with a smooth body. Ultimately, This is one of the best IPAs Ive ever had. Pick it up if you like strong hops.
