3.96/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz can, Julian date stamped 14085
L - amber colored ale with a tall, frothy, rocky ivory head that leaves chunky lacing on the glass
S - bready malt, caramel, toasted grain, earth, pine
T - bread, caramel, toasted grain with a nice dose of bitter piny, earthy hops
F - fuller body, finishes moderately bitter and semi-dry
O - nice classic tasting American IPA with a bold malt backbone coupled with some hefty bitterness but is still very well balanced. I like coming back to this one every once in awhile. It's far from being a favorite of mine, but it's a solid IPA.

Serving type: can

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.

Serving type: bottle
