Hoppin' Frog Mean Manalishi Double IPA is rich, earthy, roasty, and gorgeous.

It poured a perfect deep copper with a two-finger tan head, and it let perfect thick, tight rings of lace. This was exactly the appearance I expect from a Double IPA. During, and right after the pour, there was a hint of citric aroma: however that quickly gave way to aroma matching the flavor: very rich earthyness, with pine resin and roasted malt. The after-taste was the most enjoyable and richest I ever experienced, dominated by salty dry roasted almonds. The feel was a little thin; however, it finished with a nice dryness that complimented the roasty/salty flavor.

When judging beer, I often ask, if I would acquire more of the beer I was drinking, or if I would work it into my regular rotation. Hoppin' Frog Mean Manalishi gets a resounding "yes" to both questions. The rich flavors and roasty finish make it a contender for another question I always ask: If I can only have one beer the rest of my life, what would it be?

4.24/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
