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

On tap at Mahars. Hop and grapefruit with a nice dryness. Very rich flavours, and a nice smooth mid-palate that I will chalk up to the "honey drenched malts". Very tasty, slow drinking IPA.

hrabren (1073) - 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.

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 (364) - 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.

southnorth (9) - RUSSIA - DEC 21, 2016 does not count
So pefectly balanced to the floral and citrus hop aromas. 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.

PlutonowyMan (593) - POLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Barwa bursztynowa z miedzianymi refleksami, prawie klarowna. Piana biała, dużej trwałości, na ściankach szklanki pozostawia spieniony pierścien. Aromat w głwnej mierze słodowy, karmelowy, Tło stanowią żywica i owoce. W smaku żywica podkręca to piwo, dalej owoce, ktre nadają świeżości. Ciężkie nuty słodowe i karmelowe są wyciszone. Na finiszu długa ziołowo żywiczna goryczka, lekko ściągająca, w tym piwie kompletnie to nie przeszkadza. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku do wysokiego, pasuje

Marko (5270) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 8, 2016
On tap at Craft Room. Ruby-amber body, misty, with a thick white head, somewhat lasting. The aroma strikes immediately as not perfectly fresh, but manages to deliver assorted citric herbal, piney notes, backed by a sweetish maltiness. The taste is... well, f*ck crystal malt. Crystal malt & IPAs are not a good combo. They rarely actually work well together. There, Ive said it. But still, the hops have worked hard enough to retain a fine citrusy-herbal presence, before plunging in the abovementioned caramelly malty depths. Ends dry and slightly papery. Nicely balanced really, a good beer by all means, just the hop-malt combo doesnt do it for me.

McSherman (609) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2016
Das Hop Ottin ist bernsteinfarben, leicht opal mit einer schnen fast sahnigen Schaumkrone. Der Geruch ist herrlich kruterig, malzig und zitrusfruchtig. Der Geschmack ist karamellig, malzig und der Hopfen bringt harmonische kruterig harzige und fruchtige Noten mit. Zum Abgang setzt sich dann auch die Bittere durch, die sehr schn mit dem slichen Malzkrper harmoniert.
