The beer pours a dark golden/amber color with a thin white lace head. The aroma is good. It has a complex array of malt scents, but it mostly brags of pleasant floral hops. The taste is good. It has a very bitter flavor overlaying a malty core. It has a piney taste and a bitter aftertaste; very nice. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a fine IPA. It is a bit more bitter than some, but it has a nice malt character; a good drinker.

a: nice fluffy white head that sticks to the sides of the glass; nice amber brown body with light movement

s: light citrus; caramel malts; strong sharp bitter overtones

t: first warmer caramel malts that are slowly replaced by a handful of hop flavors and some citrus; but mostly a kick of bitter hops; really good balance

m: a little overfizzy but a great thickness and weight

d: a really good IPA with good bitterness and blend of other tastes

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this beer before now!

I have to say, when I want a good, solid IPA, Hop Ottin' delivers 100% of the time.

Pours a beautiful, rich amber, with a creamy, delicate off-white head.

The aroma, while subtle, is woodsy and citrusy, with a bit of pine in the nose.

Taste is absolutely what you'd expect from a good, solid IPA - a balanced bitterness with a peppery bite. Not aggressive, nor arrogant - just an assertive IPA with a smooth mouthfeel.

Definitely drinkable!
