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

Cask pours golden amber with a slight off white head with good retention. Nose is strong with grapfruit, tangerine, and evergreens. A solid malt body provides a nice back bone. Solid bitterness on the mouth is the perfect amount. Silkey creamy body.

Tight white head stayed well on a still, hazy copper coloured body. Citrus, pine & malt aroma. Medium bodied. Smooth on the palate and nice & sharp on the back - just how I like it. Woody pine flavours with caramel, bitter pith, citrus, hops & malt hints.

Couleur ambrée, mousse généreuse et tenace en plus d’être crémeuse. Très intense au pif avec des arômes de fruits secs, de résineux et de caramel, on a juste envie de se jeter dedans. Une fois en bouche, les soupçons se confirment : c’est juste magistral. Très intense avec les saveurs précédemment évoquées. Raisin sec, un peu pruneau, caramel, résineux, on pourrait scander à la Double IPA tellement c’est riche. Parce que mine de rien, c’est pas mal rond et pas vraiment amer On pourrait même croire qu’il y a un petit vieillissement en fût des familles. Bref, gros gros coup de coeur !

Zilb (335) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JUL 15, 2017
2 mois avant DLC. Ambrée sans mousse et très légère carbo. Arôme très intense de fruits exotiques : mangue, agrumes et pamplemousse. Attaque sur la douceur et le caramel puis vient rapidement la mangue. Final amère sur mangue et léger herbacé. Tres ronde entre douceur et amertume. Top ! Je pense qu’elle n’était plus tres fraîche mais malgré tout une très bonne IPA !!

colui72 (1061) - HONG KONG - JUN 27, 2017
Pours deep golden/amber, fizzy, with a finger of cream head and good sticky lacing. Aroma is resin, caramel and ale malts. Beautiful. Tastes get well the malts, with caramel and honey. Then the hops add bitterness, citrus, resin and pine, but they don’t take over. Very well balanced. Smooth and full bodied, creamy, average carbonation, long bitter finish. Excellent IPA that fits my taste (a good balance between hops and malts).

Very distinctive taste. It is quite bitter and there is a time for this. There are more eloquent IPA's around, but if you feel like you need a punch in the face and a lick of a bear to smoothen it up, this is your beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rychuku (122) - POLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Very sweet aroma of flowers (lilac?) with mead. Brass colour, fine head. Medium, herbalish bitterness, dry, very malty. Solid, easy to drink IPA, but nothing above that

0.3l bottle. Pours amber colour with medium size off white head, murky liquid. Strong aroma of spruce, grapefruit. Medium sweet, highly bitter, no sourness. Medium body, thick feel, long lasting refreshing bitter aftertaste.

Gangstergafje (1149) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2017
The looks of the beer isn’t bad. The beer has quite a dark orange color, with a nice medium cloudiness. It’s still possible to look trough it a bit, but it is far from clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of soft slightly off white foam. The foam retention isn’t bad. After a while a nice soft drape of foam still is left. Not bad. The smell of the beer is nice. I smell some clear malts forming a nice base. There is also a nice spicy touch, reminding me a bit of pumpkin ale. Not strong, but a very gentle touch. The hops are nice. They are quite complex. They start off with a more floral aroma, but after a while some nice aromas of both citrus and some spices appear. This pairs very well with the sweet and slightly spicy malt aroma’s. Pretty well balanced smell to. The taste is also very nice. Sweet base of malts, with again that spicy touch and also a sweet honey flavour. Besides are the strong floral hops, with some touches of citrus. Both sweets and bitters are well balanced, with a nice tiny refreshing acidity. Good one. The palate is also nice. Medium body, quite smooth and a touch of creaminess maybe, and a nice medium high carbonation. The finish is nice and contains some nice alcohol and some nice bitter hops. All in all, a nice full IPA, filled with hops but also with an eye for tasty malts. I like it a lot.
