It pours a slightly hazy iced tea orange amber. A finger of soft beige head slips away to fine frothy vellum. Tapestries of lacing suspend along the inside of the glass.

In the aroma, toasted malt is moderately berry sweet and flush with caramel. Hops grant a sheen of citrus and a dapple of crisp esters. A little sugar and a splash of alcohol flit peripherally.

Upon sipping, the malt is sugary sweet with berry and a touch of melon, as well as earthy caramel. A vague breath of mint presages pulpy dry graprefruit and crisp pine as the hops assert firmly. A cool quaver of alcohol flutters slightly. Baked biscuit breezes in as residual grain is soon bested by a building bitterness that dries and cleans a lingering finish. It's a solid if mainstream DIPA.

Medium bodied, it sticks a little, flows along, and then crisps and dries a whole lot.

I'm not sure who or what Manalishi is, or why it or he is mean, but the beer it's naming is a muscular, balanced, and tasty offering. It's just the basic hopster I want when I reach for a fundamental big IPA. Yes, the ABV is cautionable, but it does little to hinder from sip to sip. I dig the goofin' frog, I'm curious about the name, and I'm licking my lips as i finish each pint.
