Our Hop Ottin’ IPA is brewed and dry-hopped with copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade. This beer is a showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, and resiny bitterness that hop heads crave. With a brilliant, deep amber color and solid malt backbone, hints of citron, roses, and bergamot climax with a dry, herbal finish in this well-balanced interpretation of a West Coast IPA.

I like hops but not ones that finish in a bitter, biting sort of way. The most entertaining thing about this beer is the label. Bear + deer antlers = beer. Get it?!@ Not very well balanced. This is to IPAs what Heineken is to Pilsners. A bitter hell.

Purchased as a single can from Total Wine, Tampa. Pours a semiopaque amber with white, pillowing head. Smells of tree-fruit, fig, berry, strawberry, and pine. Tastes like a berry IPA; lots of sweet, blueberry syrupyness followed by malts and caramel. Hints of dried apple and plantain throughout with "Belgian spice" (coriander/ginger/clove/etc.) and hops on the tail-end. A velvety body permeates sweetness throughout while the prickly carbonation that follows punctuates the hops and spice. The more I sip this beer, 2 things come to mind: First, that it feels like an American IPA & Belgium Triple hybrid and two, that it would go great with a bowl of strawberry cough.
