Anderson Valley Hop Ottin' IPA is sweet, slippery, and not bitter.
It poured a very nice cloudy dark amber with a short one-finger head. Very little clung to the glass. The smell and taste were very sweet caramel, with no citrus or earthy flavors of which to speak. The feel was slippery smooth and fleeting. There was no bitterness whatsoever.
Hop Ottin' is tasty and was very enjoyable pool-side on a 90 degree day; however, it did not leave a lasting impression and had none of the bitterness expected from an IPA. It was a good Pale Ale but a pale IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz can (gasp) into a tulip.
A - Deep amber with about a finger of creamy light tan head. Sporadic lacing down the glass.
S - Floral and citrusy hops. I thought it would be a little more in your face (or nose), though.
T - Bitter earthy hops, but well balanced and a bright finish.
M - Full bodied up front but finishes clean and dry like an IPA should.
O - Whereas some west coast IPAs go for nothing but hop flavor and aroma, this is really well balanced while still maintaining the signature floral hop notes.

355ml bottle. Shaker glass. Orangish amber color headed by white & wide crown. Piney, citric –orange & grapefruit- aromas, slight caramel malt & floral notes. Bitter upfront yields to a gentle sweet toasted flavor. Medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Honey hues in the middle are swept out by hoppiness that lingers into an extended bitter finish.
