look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy reddish brown, with a large, somewhat dense and persistent tan head. The lacing is fine and scattered, the carbonation profuse and slow-rising.

Aroma: Massive notes of caramel overlaid with abundant grassy and pine hops.

Taste: Opens with substantial citric and pine hops. Some of the citric hops have a grapefruit character, others are more like sweet oranges, with a good measure of the pine hops as well. These, as expected for the style, are quite prominent throughout the taste. The malt, though secondary to the hops, offers a solid backbone of sweet caramel, and is a significant presence throughout the taste. Finishes with a long, lingering note of grassy and pine hops, the citric hop flavors having faded away.

Mouth feel: Smooth and soft, very full, with little carbonation noted.

Drinkability/notes: Wonderfully complex and satisfying, a very well-crafted example of a style which is not a particular favorite of mine. Nonetheless, Hop Ottin' IPA is hard not to like.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, sealed with a pry-off crown. Served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.
