Anderson Valley "Hop Ottin"
Anderson Valley Brewing Company - Boonville, California USA
IPA (ABV 7%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a clear medium golden amber with some yellow highlights and a large off white rocky head that lasted throughout and had excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was of straw malts, floral and pine hops and a earthy moldy yeast and had hints of citrus (grapefruit) and honey.

The taste was a nice bitter sweet with a mild hint of honey early on, but quickly became extremely hoppy and heavily bitter with an extra large dose of citrus at the end. The flavor stuck around for a very long time with the hoppy flavor left to linger for an good long time.

Mouthfeel was just beyond light on body and had an extra dry texture with a nice strong lively carbonation.

Overall a superbly hopped up brew: Nuff Said...
