This is a fun beer all around. The comedic appearance suggests that the experience will be light-hearted, and it is. It smells good, it drinks smooth, and its aftertaste is appealing. The label itself teases that the beer drinker can be both serious about selecting this beer for the quality and yet enjoy a humorous evening with friends at the same time. Try it, see what you think.

Drank from a 1 pint 6 fl. oz. (22 fl. oz) bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Belmont, MA
Served in a pint glass

Even with a careful pour, large chunks of yeast particles sneaked into the hazy, orangey-amber liquid. The beer was topped by a frothy, sudsy, off-white crown. Streaks of drippy lacing cascaded along the glass.

The nose was super hoppy and fragrant yet balanced. Tropical fruit notes dominated. Mango, papaya and pineapple were most noticeable. Hints of passion fruit. Somewhat dank. Overall, really solid.

Like the aroma, the flavor profile was incredibly hoppy yet very well balanced. Candied orange peel came through strong. Good amount of tropical fruitiness. I definitely picked up some mango and papaya. The beer was well anchored by a stiff yet unobtrusive caramel malt base. The finish contained notes of bitter orange peel and a touch of grapefruit zest. Hints of pine came through as well. At 7.5% ABV, the alcohol was remarkably well masked.

The mouthfeel was soft and pillowy. Creamy, frothy and smooth with a very fine and mellow effervescence.

Many of Hoppin' Frogs beers are wildly overpriced but, at $8 a bomber, this was a real bargain. Gangster Frog is a super flavorful yet immensely drinkable IPA. I would love to see this brewery jump on the canning bandwagon and offer this in six-packs.

Acquired as an extra in a trade with cynic-ale, big thanks for this one!

22 oz bomber poured into Spiegelau glass.

A: 3.75 Dark golden with a hint of copper. Pours with 2 fingers of white frothy head the reduces slowly.
S: 3.75 Citrusy and malty up front, pine in the back. Not overpowering in aroma, yet complex at the same time.
T: 4.0 Very similar to aroma, lots of citrusy goodness up front with a nice malty piney backbone. Very complex and balanced.
M: 4.5 Super smooth and almost velvety. Lingering mild dry bitterness.
O: 4.0 This is a solid IPA, one that I hope to find on the shelves around here. Very complex and well balanced.

22 oz bottle, no date but apparently this was released in April. Poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours dark orange with a finger of creamy tan head.

S- Orange, tea, herbal hop aroma, some caramel.

T- Lots of orange, some caramel malt and sugar cookie. Orange flavors blend with herbal, tea-like flavors towards the finish. It's pretty far out at this point for an IPA, it tastes nice but I can't really judge how this would have been fresh.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, a bit dry.

O- Even at this point this is still a tasty IPA, I don't wanna knock it too badly on the score because I got an old bottle, maybe they'll release this again and I can try it fresh.

Pours amber is color with an off white 1 finger head. Lots of carbonation is visible.

Nose has big spicy citrus notes overlaying a rich grain malt background.

Alot of the rich grainy malt pulls in to the taste, on the verge of nutty however I would not call it that. Hops display a nice spicy citrus character that was also present in the nose.

Mouthfeel is nice and crisp, bitterness is light and it has a good medium body

Overall this was a good ipa, I feel it might be a little close to past the best by date but it was still very good. It might have lost a lot of the citra notes but had not yet turned oniony and was still very plesent

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating but was released in April 2013. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge tangerine, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, orange rind, floral, grass, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops with a fair amount of malt balance; and big strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, orange rind, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of bright citrus, citrus zest, pineapple, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops; with a light-moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic IPA! Great all around balance and complexity of hop flavors with a fair amount of malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

the beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with about a half inch off-white head. The head sticks around for a while, and there’s a good amount of lacing. Aroma is very sweet and fruity, it’s mostly citrusy hops (tropical fruit, mango, oranges, pineapple), along with some sweet and bready malt. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s the addition of some citrus peel and grapefruit. It’s a tasty brew, but it’s definitely one of the sweeter IPA’s I’ve had recently. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s slick, smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation.

Bottle from Vas Foremost. I haven't seen this anywhere else around town, and I'm guessing it was part of the April batch, so it'd have been close to 2 months old when I had it. Served in a snifter.

A - White foam settles to a collar, wisps, and specks of lace. Transparent golden body.

S - Lots of citrus hoppiness, but balanced with sugary cookie malts and nebulous spicy note. I might have guessed that there was rye in this, but apparently it's from one of the hops. Nebulous tropical fruits round things outs.

T - The taste is similarly citrus forward, with some sugar cookie and light toffee malts present. Mild bitterness in the finish, but not excessive. Balance of malt and hop puts this squarely in IPA+ territory, as does the alcohol content.

M - Medium body that's sufficiently hefty for the higher ABV. Pleasant carbonation, dry texture, with perhaps a bit of warmth after a glass.

D - I can extrapolate that this would have been quite excellent back in April; it's a shame Chicago distributors are so slow at getting this type of beer to market. Still, a solid beer that straddles the line between IPA and IIPA, and certainly one of Hoppin' Frog's better hoppy offerings. Hopefully they make a new batch sometime.

When I first opened this one up, it was clear this is a citrus forward ipa. No question there. Perhaps a note of tropical hops in there as well but certainly grapefruit dominant. Pungeant.

The taste surely does not disappoint. Very strong grapefruit leads the charge off the bat with a healthy spicy character as well. In fact, the label states as such. Truth in advertising. There is a bit of a tropical note in there but again, surely a dominant citrus, spicy ipa. The finish is very clean. Very little, if any residual bitterness. It just wraps right up.

This is an awesome new addition to their lineup. So tasty. Best part is, it has all the taste without a puckering bitterness. Love it.

22oz bomber poured into wine glass.

Appearance-pours slightly darker than apricot, with a thin white head which disappears quickly. Little bits of lacing hanging around. 4

Aroma-lots of orange at first, some grapefruit, slight tropical feel to it with pineapple and mango. Floral and just a very sweet smelling IPA. 4.25

Taste-the taste is nowhere near as sweet as the aroma would lead you to believe. Much more bitter and that's a good thing. Grapefruit, orange peel, a bit of mango. A very even balance of bitter and sweet. 4.5

Feel-a bit thin, ABV is perfect for an IPA, coats the palate well and sticks. 3.75

Overall-this is a solid IPA, I'd stretch that out to say one of the better Ohio made IPA's. I hope that Hoppin' Frog makes this a yearly release, or a regular. Price is right on point for their other beers, I picked mine up for 7.99. They really need to start packing in six packs and bottle dating their stuff. If that happens I would purchase it more. 4.25

Cloudy orange-amber pour with a small white head that retained and laced well. Nice aroma of fresh citrusy hops, pine, sweet undertones. More hoppy goodness in the taste, citrus and tropical fruits, pine, wildflowers, bready caramel malt base. Crisp mouthfeel, medium body, easily drinkable, very enjoyable overall.

Serving Type - 22oz bottle

Appearance - Burnt orange/tan with a 1/2 foamy head, lots of sticky lacing.

Smell - Citric fruits, orange, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, malts, sugary yeasts.

Taste - Very nice blend of sweet fruits, caramel malts and yeasts. Very smooth and fruity with a decent but not overpowering hop bitterness. Added spices mixed with yeasty sugars gives it a sweet note with the bitter hops. There is a underlying alcohol presence in each sip.

Mouthfeel - Nice sweet fruits coat the tongue, along with some minor hop bitterness. Palate gets more hops, fruits and sweet yeasty sugars. The finish is citric hoppy, with some alcohol warmth.

Overall - Very solid, balanced and tasty. This would be a great welcomed regular addition to the ipa world. Very tasty and easy to drink. Not a mouth/palate wrecker so its easy to enjoy. Another top notch beer from the world class hoppin frog. 7.99$ for a 22oz'er makes it even more enjoyable.

Pours a gorgeous bright orange bodied slightly clouded with yeast sediment, the bottle says to hold off on the yeast that just isn't my style. Gangster Frog IPA 7.5% abv this is and should be to my liking according to the label it has citrus and tropical fruit notes with balance. Head is thick and creamy off white with fine layered lacing settling along the sides of my glassware. Aroma is upfront hitting me hard with grapefruit and orange citrus peels, a semi sweet malt backbone is evident with each sip, but doesn't kill me with any booze or off notes. Flavor hits hard with hop bitterness but blends into a candy coated hop garden full of citrus mainly grapefruit with hints of passion fruit and mango juiciness. Clean finish doesn't linger but the hop flavors stay with you, it really adds to the drinkability of this beer a big flavorful IPA with easy going drinkability gets me every time I'm sold on the Gangster Frog, damn good drinking IPA but it's got some kick especially pouring from a 22 ounce bottle.

Newest beer from Hoppin' Frog!!

Pours out a bright and clear orange with a ton of carbonation and 2 fingers of an off-white head.

The aroma is packed with hops; sweet citrus notes, tropical fruits like mango, pineapple and papaya and some grapefruit and a little bit of bready malt.

Just like in the aroma there are a ton of hops here! A lot of sweet orange right away and then that fades into some really juicy tropical fruits like mango, papaya, pineapple, some grapefruit and some pine on the back end. There is a decent malt backbone with some bready notes.

The body is medium and the mouthfeel is crisp and clean. The alcohol is completely hidden.

This is an extremely juicy and hop packed IPA. It's a great beer that I hope they make again. Any hophead in the area really needs to try this one. A little heavy on the malt for my taste and could use some more bitterness, but an awesome beer.

Gangster Frog pours a nice orange stained gold color. It’s a little hazy. Holding it to light reveals a little more of an orange tint. It’s capped with an off white head that rises to almost a finger in height. It falls back rather quickly, leaving a light, spotty lacing on the glass. Looks pretty good.

The nose is nothing short of excellent. It’s bursting with citrus grapefruit and orange notes. It does smell a little sweet and sugary. I’m not getting much in terms of caramel…thankfully. Smells a little bread-like or crackery. There’s a malt presence here, but it’s definitely not a strong caramel base. Love it. More citrus hop scents of pineapple and mango emerge. There’s a light floral note there, as well. Alcohol is blended well. Smells excellent!

The flavor is equally as good, if not better. The malt base is sweet, bready, and crackery. There might be a subtle hint of caramel, but it’s light. Nevertheless, the base is rather sturdy and holds things together nicely. The hop flavor is excellent. It’s loaded with citrus pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and orange flavors. Light floral notes are also there. It’s a little bitter, but seems more even keel than I anticipated. It’s not a palate wrecker at all. The hops definitely deliver though! Alcohol is masked well. Finishes with a really nice citric hop flavor.

The body is on the lighter side of medium. Feels a tad thin. Carbonation is light and soft. It’s not quite smooth, but it isn’t bad. It’s definitely easy drinking. This stuff goes down far too fast and easy.

Gangster Frog is an excellent release from Hoppin’ Frog! Wow! Those guys can brew some beer. About the only complaint I have is that it seems a little thin. That’s it. It’s a solid performer all around otherwise. Seek this one out!

Poured from a bottle into a Goose Island tulip. The pour is a hazy apricot color with a finger of head that dies quickly but leaves some nice lacing. The nose is to die for. It's like dunking your head in a bowl of fresh oranges, peaches, lemons, and grapefruit. Simply a citrusy heaven.

The beer has a medium body, an oily feel, and lots and lots of fruity flavors. I get a big, sweet, toast and marmalade hit up front and chasers of orange and grapefruit flavored hops at mid-palate. For all the hop flavors, this beer is surprisingly balanced, maybe even a little sweet, yet the flavors all seem to mesh together well. Sadly, the finish is a little disappointing. The beer is a little too good-natured, leaving you with a bouquet of fruity sweetness instead of kicking you in the palate on the way out.

It's interesting how midwestern brewers are working overtime trying to nail down that West Coast IPA flavor. Fat Head's Head Hunter IPA, Great Lakes Alchemy Hour IIPA, and now Hoppin' Frog's Ganster IPA are all going super citrusy with this style. I couldn't be happier about it! A terrific beer from Hoppin' Frog and one that I hope they will re-release.

look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

poured from a 22oz. bomber into my dogfish head spiegelau

appearance: pours a hazy dark gold orange, with a 1.5 finger off white head (hard pour), nice spotty lacing as the beer decends in the glass.

smell: the smell is remarkable, a burst of floral and citrus hops, pungent tangerine and grapefruit grace the nose. I was able to smell this after the pour even with my recent stuffy nose.

taste: matches the nose very well. tangerine and grapefruit greet the palate first soon followed by a slightly sweet malt/biscuit after and mellows into a slight bitterness, not too strong and not too weak, just the perfect amount of lingering.

mouthfeel: light medium body with very easy drinkability, slightly oily with medium carbonation. good feel

overall: this is one of my top choices for an ipa (and i am usually an imperial kind of guy). the smell coincides with the taste perfectly and the blance is wonderful. drinkability is so easy you could find yourself in trouble with this one. the name fits perfect too, like an old ganster it gets the job done with swagger and no b.s.!

This was just released so its pretty fresh. Poured 22oz bomber into tulip. Pours light hazy orange with a nice two finger head that laces well as you drink. There is an enjoyable amount of sediment. S,ell is lots of tropical fruit, pine, orange, biscuit. Taste is a lot like the nose only better, tons of orange, tropical fruit, west coast style piney hops, buttery, little malt. The texture is so smooth and the hop profile is refreshing without being overly bitter or abrasive. Overall this beer was amazing, a great west coast style ipa that is refreshing and easy to drink. Has the perfect hop profile and tons of sweet fruit. This was better than I expected and I hope it ps easy to get as summer rolls on.

22 oz Bomber purchased at Lizardville just a few days after the release date (very fresh). Poured into a Tulip glass. My first Hoppin Frog IPA...I admit, I avoid because of no bottling date and $$$$. Love their BORIS Crusher stout.

A - golden, copper tone and pours a slight head. alcohol is noticeable. Not exactly sticky lacing but lacing is present nonetheless. Tiny particles of beery goodness can be found if you look close.

S - citrus / tangerine / orange.

T - citrus hops roll into an excellent, lingering bitter profile. Surprised at the bitter trail considering its only 55 IBU. Bread / biscuit flavour strong. Malts are present and balance out the hops nicely. Very balanced overall, this is not a 'hop bomb' style IPA. Although it doesn't taste like a 'Bell's Two Hearted', I'll use it as a reference as it has a similar risk and uniqueness in the IPA class of beers.

M - Extremely fresh so it was terrific for my experience. Syrupy hop goodness.

O - I was impressed. Lots of character and this would be appreciated by those that like balanced hop / malt single IPAs. Bitterness is very present, but well done. Would buy again, but it's a bit pricey.

Poured into a tulip.

A : Tangerine orange with a finger and a half head that holds nicely

S: Smells or orange peel and pure citrus. There's a hint of maltiness in the nose to balance it out.

T: An explosion of tangerines. The hops are there but the bit is mild on this. Just enough malt backbone to really balance this IPA out.

M: Slick, medium mouthfeel and leaves a citrus finish that goes for miles.

O: I'm really impressed with this beer. Extremely drinkable, very well balanced. Delicious.
