Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

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.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours an outstanding orange to amber color forming a medium creamy yellow head. Medium retention and some thin lingering molasses lacings left in the glass

S: Lots of caramel. Caramel malts, crystal malts. Brown sugar and flowery hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of caramel, caramel malts, crystal malts, brown sugar. Great and balanced hops bitterness. Hops are a must! Excellent quality hops. Mainly herby, flowery and a bi piny profile. I would dare to say it's mainly Centennial

M: Medium, creamy and a bit molasses body. Good carbonation. Sweet caramel malts mixed with piny hops in the aftertaste. Great bittersweet balance

O: Excellent drinkability. Authentic and delicious American IPA

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.
Pours with a copper color with rather large head.
Odor has some hints of nuttiness, fruity, and hops.
Taste is typical IPA at first, but then becomes more interesting as it moves on. Some malty sweetness in the middle and a really good hop finish.
Mouth feel is pretty smooth.
Overall, a very good IPA that is pretty diverse. Well worth getting and trying.

A: Copper color, with a full off white head of foam.

S: Moderate smell of hops, fruit, and floral.

T: Smooth malty flavor with a bit of citris, floral, and pine. Strong hops finish.

M: Smooth on the mouth. Fairly strong carbonation goes well with the strong hops flavor.

O: This is a solid American IPA and is well worth trying. It's got a strong hops finish which I personally love, and the other aspects of the beer are well balanced.
