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 a slightly hazy, amber orange with a big, off-white, foamy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Has a good amount of carbonation. Smells of wonderful citrus hop and nice malt. The taste is about balance. A wonderful balance of citrus and pine hop in which the pine sticks around. The malt transition is probably the smoothest I gave had.

Picked up a 12oz bottle at the shop. Poured a dark copper and amber. Almost a reddish hue to it. Smells of citrus pith and resinous pine. So drinking this I personally feel like it is very malt forward almost like a APA. If I taste tested this blind I would think it was a APA. I gave it a 4 tho for taste because I like the taste very much. It's a good beer. A malt forward IPA if there is such a thing.

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a slightly hazy dark copper color with two fingers of head. There is lots of lacing left on the glass. The smell is packed full of citrus and floral hops. An almost typical IPA smell. The taste is packed full of hops! This is even hoppier than 90 minute dare I say. There is some grapefruit and bread in the background. The mouthfeel is fairly strong and heavy. The drinkability is also pretty good for 7%. A hop lover's delight!

Nice looking brew - clear orange/amber color with substantial creamy ivory head that retains well and produces some nice sticky lacing.

The aroma is grapefruit, hints of pine resin, honey and caramel malt, not at all overpowering.

The taste is somewhat bready caramel malt up front, then a solid hit of grapefruit and pine needles, some earthy and peppery notes drift in and out. finishes out with a lasting peppery, piney aftertaste.

Medium bodied, creamy smooth and very drinkable. Reasonably balanced (for an American IPA), but definitely for the hop head.
