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.

The beer is decent, not awesome, not amazing but its decent. Pours a deep mahogany color with a decent hoppy aroma. The taste is refreshing, kinda bitter, kinda hoppy, worth drinking. The solar panels are working in overdrive to bring this APA to life. The citrus and pine make for a good flavor profile.

Bottom Line: Decent APA in the crowded field of craft beer.

From an undated 650 ml bottle into a tulip.

A-An aggressive pour produces two-plus fingers of off-white head. The retention is decent and the lacing is quite impressive. The beer is honey colored and nearly clear. I can see a few bubbles of carbonation in there.

S-The hop scents are perfumey and floral with a bit of zesty, spicy orange. A big dose of caramel malt flavors provide some balance. It is nice smelling, but pretty pedestrian.

T-The taste, like the smell, is balanced between a decent hit of caramel malts and perfumed, floral orange notes. There is a bit of herbal dankness, too. Mildly bitter with just a hint of pine.

M-The feel is smooth and drinkable with a lightly oily feel. Heft is medium.

O-This is a good IPA, and I would drink it again, but I won't go seeking it out. I wonder if my bottle was older and/or had lost a little of its hoppiness, because I got a fair amount of caramel? Anyway, the looks and feel are pretty solid, and with a bit more complexity in the hops, I think this would make for a world-class IPA. As it was, however, I give it merely above-average.
