Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. I've had a ton of Hop Ottin' over the years; I can't imagine why it's taken me so long to review.
Appearance: orange-brown hue with a bit of a haze and a moderate effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy ivory foam with a nice lace on the glass. I think it's pretty damn good-looking.
Smell: caramel malt with a very floral hop character. There's also a touch of citrus in there which is quite nice.
Taste: sweet, caramelly malt with a big, floral hop character. Bitterness is moderate and relatively balanced. If you like sweet IPAs, this one could be for you.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and an amazing creaminess for an IPA. Bam!
Overall: this is a very good IPA, although its flavor profile definitely favors the floral, soapy, caramelly end of the spectrum. Drinkable and refreshing, I do like to have a few of these on occasion.
