This was a sneek release that I was fortunate to obtain from a friend of the brewer. I was told this one is for US export only - so a very big thanks to Patrick. I believe the name is just "Hoppy Otter IPA" as that’s all my label states.
Goldeny amberish colour. Great aroma with both a grassy and citrus scent. Decent head off rough pour which leaves nice lacing. Nice sweet biscuity, caramelly crystal malt backbone. Malt balances wonderfully with the hop bitterness. A bit more highly hopped, and carbonated than normal English style IPAs...interesting and very drinkable. This is very similar to a few of the American IPAs I have had only it has kept the balance that English IPAs are notorious for.
Excellent! Very well brewed. When will this be released in the UK? and Where can I find more?
Non-IPA aroma of caramel malts and dark fruits. Murky brown color, body is sedated. Slightly hoppy flavor, mainly sweet malts.Easy drinking for the most part, a touch of heaviness. Classic English ale, feature a ’Hoppy Otter’ right on it. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2012

Cloudy light brown beer with an amber hue. No head. Rich malty nose. Low carbonation semi dry palate. Rich malt with slightly seared and bitter orange. The two elements are well balanced. The orange gets richer, marmalade like, sweeter too. Finishes semi dry. Sumptuous flavour and very drinkable.
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, hps, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, and caramel. imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Beer of Europe, Norfolk. Hazed amber with white head. Sweet, caramel, toffee malting, quite heavy on the palate, with an over ripe strawberry fruitiness, not as sharp as you would expect an IPA to be. Some aromatic type hops, they struggle a little with the sweet malts, but quite drinkable all the same. joergen (28164) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2011

50 cL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and slight hoppy. Bitter, peachy and grapefruity hoppy. Bitter and dry grapefruity finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy amber with a small rough off-white head. Somewhat citrusy aroma, but also somewhat greasy. Solid carbonation, carbonation is a little low. Sweet fruit and caramel, the hops are slightly citrusy but aroma-wise they are pretty downplayed. Ends fairly bitter. Not too bad though. 030511 Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy dark orange colour, white bubbles. Aroma is caramel, toffee, a bit hoppy. Flavour is sweet caramel malts, pine, flowery. Thick bodied, a bit barley wine-esque. Sweet and slightly dry finish. Enjoyable. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Still looking very thickly bodied amber beer with very little head. The aroma is well hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped and slightly floral. Overall a nice well hopped and bitter beer.
