I originally sampled this beer on 26 January 2002. I am writing this review from my notes. This beer has a nice floral aroma, w/ an amber color. It's very hoppy. For me, it's a bit too hoppy. It's good, but not as good as Stone IPA , 2 Heart or Victory Hop Devil

Hop Ottin' IPA – IPA (7.0%) - Anderson Valley Brewing Co. (California)
☆☆

App: Rich brown orange color with a massive off white head that literally takes up half the glass. Can erupted everywhere when I opened it, even though it was cold and had been sitting for at least 3 minutes. Could be my fault, but it makes me a little reticent. Pretty good lacing.

Smell: Some bitter earthiness in the nose. Fleeting piney notes,with a heavy alcohol smell. Not a lot going on. Could be a result of the pour?

Taste: Metallic and slightly bitter. Some nice floral like hops in the true taste. No malt balance to recommend with only the slightest toasted malts hiding in the background. Lackluster and with a lingering bitterness that is not pleasant.

Mouth: A little thin bodied but still well carbonated despite the disastrous can situation.

Home tasting, 12oz can into Tulip Glass. 12/18/13

A- poured a slight transparent dark amber color. solid off white colored head. medium to thick lacing.

S- just a faint hop smell is all i could pick up.

T- no malt presence at all. light hoppy aftertase. weak and watery.

M- light bodied. medium/ heavy carbonation.

D- glad i bought a single.

Overall- this is one brew i kinda had hopes for. i was going to get a 6 pack which was priced 12.99 and i'm glad i just bought a single. it reminded me of a crap macro lager like bud, coors, etc just hopped alil more. nothing special and totally a overrated beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours clear, copper in color with 3 fingers of frothy off white head. Good retention but hardly any lacing.

Smells strongly of citrus with honey, molasses and biscuits.

Strange taste. The bitterness is present, but not a ton of hop flavor behind it. I can't say much about it, there is just not much going on in the flavor department. Fairly bland.

Very light in body, almost watery. Very little carbonation.

There is nothing offensive about this beer, but at the same time, it has very little going for it. Appearance and smell got my hopes up, but the taste and mouthfeel were a bit disappointing.

A thick amount of head with a golden/copper color with a lot of bubbles running up the glass. The aroma is a faint amount of floral/lemon with a lot of grass. The malt nose was also absent with only a subtle amount extremely pale/almost adjunct aroma. Taste was a quick amount of surprisingly tasty citrus hops but quickly changes to a let down of a backing body by the malt (a sweet water flavor) and a very dry and pungent lemon/orange rind bitterness. The hops were not supported by the body of this beer and the balance of hop characteristics did not match up.
