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.

Dated (?) I 04 28 81 B O... go figure...

Can't really add to this many reviews... in a nutshell.

Great looking IPA to start with, but the head dies to a kinda high-tide look, not so good. Great lace.

It's not a hop-bomb, and the malt is there, so that's good as well. Otherwise true to style with all the grapefruit characters.

Good solid IPA in a crowded market. Must confess I though it would be fresher due to being a can, but then I can't work out the BB info ....

Part of an ongoing bottle for bottle swap with a work buddy. No whales, just new stuff.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into NB globe.

A - Cloudy orange with small off white head. Looks the part.

S - not much nose going on. Mild piney hops but hopped for more.

T - buttery in the front, then the hops announce themselves with moderate noise. There is a maltiness that comes on stronger as the beer warms. Not usually a fan of tha tin my IPAs but it works ok here. Better qualities on the tongue than on the nose thankfully. Not amazing but a solid drink.

M - pretty full mouthfeel especially for the style. The bitterness lingers nicely as does the buttery feel. Quite enjoyable actually and I was suprised by that.

O - a pretty solid IPA. Not sure how often I'll seek it out, but certainly wouldnt turn it down if offered or on tap. Less hops than hoped for and the finish doesnt stick as long either. Good IPA, if a little average.

12oz can served in a standard pint glass.

L - hazed orange/amber color with a creamy beige head that left a coating of lacing.

S - sour citrus fruit with a earthy background.

T - I tasted some malt upfront but it soon went to grapefruit rind bitter to carry me through till the end.

F - medium bodied with a smooth and creamy feel.

O - if bitter is your thing then this beer is a must try.
