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

Light copper color with med. sized off white head. Aroma is full of both herbal and citrusy hops, along with caramel and honey. Flavor is malty, slightly smokey, touches of caramel, vanilla, and oak. Finish has a bit of sweetness, but is dominated by a significant bitterness. A very nice IPA.

12 oz bottle. Beautiful, coppery pour, big rocky yellowy white head. Really pleasing to look at! Thick foamy lacing. Nose is all citrusy hops. Flavor starts out over the top hoppy, but mellows into some rather pleasant maltiness. The finish is bitter, and again, starts out huge but mellows nicely - peppery with a decent warming down the gullet.

Hazy amber-orange with a huge, glasslacing pale yellow head that hangs around. Citrusy-hoppy aroma and a mildly hoppy taste and aftertaste. Not really very bitter, but it drinks really well!

A wonderfully balanced IPA. The head remainded for the duration with tons of lacing. A very floral and citrus hoppy flavor. Easily of the best IPA out there. Well done.

A fine example of a Northern California IPA. This is a beautiful beer that should be consumed with passioin and abandon at Mormon/Catholic apostate weddings everywhere.

Hop Ottin terrrific. Lots of hops bring this one in perfect. Nice floral boquet with a bit of citric fruit in the nose and first taste. So pefectly balanced. I am beginning to love this brewer!!!

3.2
GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2006
The color of honey w/ a WOW on the nose. Big citrus rind, almost like inhaling hop dust. Imagine your sinus cavity imploding half way through a vital inhale during a two minute breath holding competition while under duress. Palate is medium to full nectar. It’s a big hoppy style that leaves room for nothingelse. Akin to battery acid. Totally dry w/ a long finish. If you love hops, this is your brew.

3.8
goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Poured a hazy orange-amber color with a large off white head. Nice hoppy aroma is citrusy mixing grapefruit and oranges. Swet malt underneath of caramel and honey. Flavor starts with sweet malt that quickly moves to piney hops that linger long past the malt ends. Long moderately bitter finish. Nice IPA. I can’t believe I never had this one before.
