Hop Ottin' IPA, Anderson Valley Brewing Co., Boonville, CA

The Hop Ottin' IPA comes out of the AVBC which judging from the picture on the label is much much different from the LBC. The Hop Ottin' has a peculiar consistency reminiscent of one of those rice beers. The IPA has a caramel apply malt flavor and there is a late whisper of hops in the aftertaste. I wouldn't consider this to be a traditional IPA, but it is different in its own right. The 7% ABV can't be laughed at either. All in all the beer gets a 3.5
