Anderson Valley Hop Ottin' IPA

type: IPA
origin: Boonville, CA, USA
price: ???

I spent Thanksgiving at my brother's house in Petaluma (northern California). The night before we had a solid Silver Bullet session, but I noted he had a case of Anderson Valley brews in his garage; naturally, I helped myself.

For maybe the first time ever, the bottle's description of this beer is accurate. Most of the time it's blow-smoke-up-your-ass type description, but this is spot on: robust floral start, complex body, sharp, and biting. This is a pretty unique IPA, when most are too hoppy.
