Manalishi starts the epic stink as soon as you open the bottle, and as you let it sit and drink it slowly over the course of an hour, it really develops into something interesting. A dark and beautiful amber color with a nice thick and quickly dissipating head reveals a brew with a syrupy mouthfeel which accompanies the malts. But of course, this brew is all about the enormous amounts of Hops, and this jam delivers a huge bouquet of stank grapefruits and some pine as well. Malty and sweet up front, hoppy all the way through, and lingering on the tongue, this is what I like in a DIPA -- complexity and extremity. I scored a few other Hoppin' Frog beers which I will definitely be writing up, and between my first Bell's last night and my first Hoppin' Frog tonight, my recent beer haul is already looking outrageous.
