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

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a semi-clear copper color. Theres about two fingers worth of off-white colored head, though the texture is a bit rougher than I prefer. The retention is solid enough, though, and good amounts of lacing are left behind. S: The hops here are mostly piny, with some lemony hints and no tropical fruits (or any other citrusy notes) anywhere. Meanwhile, its malt backbone is loaded with toffee and nuttiness. I kind of wish this was less malty and more fruity, but thats only personal preference. T: Theres a slight opening of nutty sweetness - then boom, the hops hit. Sadly, there isnt much hop flavor, rather it relies on grassy bitterness as a ballast toward the building caramel sweetness. Theres something past the swallow suggesting leather, and after half the bottle, becomes too malty for me. But its still pretty good at the end of the day. M: Carbonation pokes through the body quite strongly, and helps to dry out the finish some. Its also quite crisp and relatively light (if somewhat sweet on the linger), so this one is pretty drinkable. O: This kind of IPA - sweetish, bitter from the hops, no citrus - isnt my style, but this *is* well made considering that. I have trouble finding this one fresh, and its a bit pricier than the standard IPA 6-packs; as a result, this one isnt on my must buy immediately list.

hrabren (1121) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 22, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Vinja 666, Tanja, Davor and Goran. Murky orange, lasting small off-white head. Light hoppy, although faded, herbs and citrus. Quite bitter, mostly herbal. Medium body, gentle bitter finish. Good, maybe fresh would be better. Not very impressive, but no flaws.

silencifobic (16) - Sabadell, SPAIN - JAN 21, 2017
Darker than expected honey colored. Noble bitter taste, well balanced so you can feel the malts as well. Surprising aroma, not usual for an IPA.

Bijl (409) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2016
Oranjegeel van kleur, crmekleurige schuimkraag, het koolzuur zien je mooi langzaam stijgen. Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit, pijnboom, tropisch, grassig/hoppig/floraal, karamel, moutig. Smaak: Volle hopbitter, vol moutig en broodachtig , tropisch fruit, grapefruit, citrus, pijnboom/hars, aarde, honing. De bitter is grassig en floraal en gaat mooi over in fruitige en tropische hinten. Echt een mooie moutige en vol gehopte IPA. Volle body, zacht en romig mondgevoel maar toch ook iets netelig en prikkelend. Afdronk is bitter maar niet heel lang. Iets droog. Prima Spul.
