Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Pours orange-amber, slightly hazy with a one-finger head. Aroma is somewhat malty with citrus mixed in. Smells very refined and smooth - well done. Taste is malt-forward with a good dose of citrus. Very smooth flavor and well balanced. Moderate bitterness kicks in midway through. Very good west coast - really liked this one.

A fairly good craft IPA. Hits of malt liquor in the flavor, and decent bitterness mix well with the hop varieties. Purple label is very attractive and unique. Pretty good Ipa

Clear golden yellow with a decent head of foam that leaves nice lacing. Smell of pine, melon and grapefruit. These flavours return in the taste, with some maltiness added to the mix. Pine is dominating here. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied and refreshing. This is a fine IPA.
