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.

12 oz. Bottle

Pours a very nice clean/clear golden yellow color, with some pretty nice carbonation, with a nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body. Overall, a very tasty brew.

Nice looking IPA with an amber color and minimal head. Scent is a bit less bold than I would expect. I'm getting pineapple, citrus and slight melon with a slight malt edge. Nice smooth flavor of citrus and slight pine. Good feel to this beer with a nice mouth coating and yet a crisp finish. No alcohol in the mix. Not very bitter. Quality beer.

Poured to a tulip glass.

A: The body is a bit hazy between orange and copper. The head is minimal with good retention. No lacing.
S: There's tons of fruit, pineapple, resin, grapefruit, orange, lemon zest. It's rather good.
T: The taste has some citrus some of lemon and orange, there's some grapefruit and hoppy profile in the back.
M: Body is medium to medium high. Carbonation is good. Bitterness is minimal.
O: Nice surprise.
