While watching the Red Sox / Yankees game I thought it was time to review Hoppin Frog Mean Manalishi Double IPA . Sharp looking label with a frog holding a mug of beer in his left hand . Poured into a Brooklyn Brewery pilsner glass nice thick foamy head and beautiful tawny color . There is not freshness date on the label . After a few minutes the head has now become concave in the glass . Like a dimple on a golf ball . Hoppin Frog is from Ohio . Maybe this will be the 3rd best thing to come out of Ohio . 1st being DEVO . 2nd The Pretenders ( before Honeyman-Scott and Farndon had their drug issues ) . The aroma is hoppy and citrusy , just like the taste . It is good but not the flavor hop bombs that I enjoy . The heat in my cheeks is here halfway through the bomber . I wish there was more hop kick and punch in this . It is a good brew but I guess I am a hop bomb junkie now .

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into fluted glass
Aroma of citrus, mostly grapefruit, and some pine
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 1 cm layer
Lacing good with thick rings of small bubbles and a few stalactites
Body medium orange and hazy
Flavor very marked grapefruit with only slight bitterness. No alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl. Ends with slight grapefruit bitterness, no chalkiness, no alcohol afterburn.
Palate medium, slight oiliness, soft carbonation.
IMHO, a very underrated DIPA. Very nicely flavored with a good nose, this is an attractive beer.
