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!

12 oz. btl at SFO waiting for a flight to JFK

A rich amber pour, golden/white 1" foamy head.

Nice hops on the nose, citrus a touch of pine.

Bright hops, citrusy, round long finis.

The roundness continues on the mouth feel, bordering on full.

A good everyday not over the top IPA. Certainly worthy of keeping some around, 60 minute'ish.

This brew was poured to a nice copper color with a little cloudiness and a nice thick fluffy off white head that broke down slowly and left a good amount of lacing down the sides of the glass. The aromas of this brew are mostly of floral and citrus hops, the floral seem to be more dominant but I am able to pick up both. Able to sense some malt in the nose but definitely takes a back seat. The taste is nice, I am able to pick up the malt even though it seems to show up and then disappear just a quick as the hops taste takes over and you can notice a slight alcohol taste. Over all this is a very nice brew, not my favorite IPA but very solid.
