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.

Poured into a big mouth wine glass.

A sweet golden-orange amber, with a thin head, glorious bubble streams and lacing.

That West coast IPA scent malty grapefruit-pine bliss.

Taste follows the nose, with creamy herbal tang of echoing delight. Bubbly and sour.

Not bad, would be a B+ / A- affair if they jacked the ABV up by about two %, but that is a finite detraction, in the big picture.

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
