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.

The beer has a big herbal, woodsy, grassy hop nose with some resin and an initial touch of sulfur to it that dissipates quickly.
Pours hazy gold amber with a lightly amber tinted 2” off-white finely bubbled foam cap.
Fruit and melon with a hint of peach begin the palate with light caramel, rich malt flavors, and a mellow rounded bitterness on the finish with a touch of herbal astringency. Well balanced between the bitterness and the malt topped with a lot of hop flavor.
Very creamy with a medium full body.

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.!
