Hop Ottin’ IPA – the beer brewed by hippies. I have no idea if this was actually brewed by hippies, but the skunky scent that hit me when I cracked this beer made me think the bottle might be packed with gooey high-grade. And, it was brewed in a solar powered brewery. Only hippies want to save the world from oil domination, right? At least this beer doesn’t have hemp seeds floating in it. In all seriousness, we need energy independence. Politics done.
As I took my first sip of this beer, I thought, “Damn! I just poured hops juice in mouth.” This is a hoppy, hoppy beer. As I adjusted to the shock, I began to enjoy the hops juice. It’s bold though. This is a full-bodied beer that’s a bit overwhelming.
Would I buy this beer again? No, I don’t think so. It’s a bit too much for me. I liked it, but it’s not something I think I’d enjoy repeatedly. Should you try this beer? If you like hops, this will blow you away. If not, try it to remind yourself why you don’t like hoppy beers.
I enjoyed the experience of Hop Ottin’ IPA, but it’s too strong to give more than 3/5 caps to. However, it’s a high 3/5 caps.
