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.

A - Cloudy gold two fingers foamy fluffy white head, medium spotty lacing

M - Medium bitterness, not too chewy, well balanced.
O - Very good IPA, I think its a little overrated though, but i like the variety of different aromas and flavors in this one.

Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured an orange color with white soapy head that dissipated instantly and left no lace.

S- Huge pungent peach, pineapple, and tropical hop goodness.

T- Huge pungent pineapple, peach, citrus, and tropical fruit notes, some dank, piney, and astringent hop character with a sweet caramelized bready malt backbone.

M- Pretty big warming, very smooth, medium to fuller bodied for the style, and incredibly dry.

O- Really awesome IPA exploding with juicy tropical hop character. This IPA really highlights Citra hops very well.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to DogFishJoe for this.

Bomber into a snifter, very hazy apricot body with a finger high head of white. It has some decent retention and a smattering of loosely formed lacing around the glass.

Floral hops are front and center on the nose quite a bit of orange citrus and secondary pine and grasses. The orange citrus sweetness blends well with the sweet caramel and cookie dough malt. Brief hints at the alcohol and plentiful yeast.

Bready malt, somewhat thin but supplemented by the plentiful yeast. Sweetness is of honey soaked toast and a light toffee that is quickly engaged by the hops. Plentiful grapefruit rind and orange citrus, oily pine and light resin to follow. Moderate bitterness and alcohol buzz that puts it at a IPA+ range.

Moderate carbonation, the first half of the bottle was somewhat thin in the malt but once the yeast got into the glass this beer got weighed down and fell down a notch. Alcohol is pretty well hidden and the moderate bitterness welcomes in just enough drying.

A good IPA, plentiful yeast really hurt this so drink it colder with careful pouring to get the most out of the bright hops that are a tick stronger than most other IPAs in both aroma and flavor.
