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 amber/honey colored with thick foamy head. There is excellent head and lacing retention. Piney, grassy smell with hints of citrus. Strong piney/grassy taste at the beginning. A bitter bitey, hops follows with a mild malty taste at the end. There is a pronounced bitter aftertaste. Definitely a beer for hop heads. It has a really good balance of hops and malt.

A- poured a beautiful clear copper with a big slightly tan head. Head has great retention and left huge lacing on the glass.

S-big pine hops aroma upfront with just a hint of caramel malt sweetness in the background

T-not sure what's going on with the taste. It doesn't taste "off" but it seems a little weird for an IPA with the aroma profile it has. Can't really describe it, but it seems like rather than there being some distinction between hops and malt, it got tossed in a blender and mixed together.

M-there is a nice full texture to the beer with just a hint of resin

O-I'm wondering if I may have had a bum bottle, but given that nothing smells weird about it or really tastes as though it's gone off, I can only assume based on the one I have that this is the way its supposed to taste.

Hop Ottin' IPA – IPA (7.0%) - Anderson Valley Brewing Co. (California)
☆☆

App: Rich brown orange color with a massive off white head that literally takes up half the glass. Can erupted everywhere when I opened it, even though it was cold and had been sitting for at least 3 minutes. Could be my fault, but it makes me a little reticent. Pretty good lacing.

Smell: Some bitter earthiness in the nose. Fleeting piney notes,with a heavy alcohol smell. Not a lot going on. Could be a result of the pour?

Taste: Metallic and slightly bitter. Some nice floral like hops in the true taste. No malt balance to recommend with only the slightest toasted malts hiding in the background. Lackluster and with a lingering bitterness that is not pleasant.

Mouth: A little thin bodied but still well carbonated despite the disastrous can situation.

Home tasting, 12oz can into Tulip Glass. 12/18/13
