Truth in advertising. It tastes just like something called Frog's Breath should. Pale yellow color could be something else from a frog.

Extremely bitter hops with no flavor and with absolutely no body. To me it tastes like astringent.

A constructive comment: unless your idea of flavor is chewing on your lawn, don't bother.

22 oz bomber into tulip glass. Poured carefully to avoid stirring sediment at bottom. Pours very pale, is gold in the glass. Smells bready, with a fruity high note.

Tastes very hoppy/piney. Really bitter. That's almost all you get. Long finish, which in this case is not necessarily a good thing. I have a friend who might like this style, but I like my hops more balanced. This one's a one-note wonder.

Pours from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass. Pours slightly hazy and sunset sky in color. Topped with a one to two finger sized white head that is voth frothy and wispy, if that is possible. Some lacing is present and the head remains foamy and sizeable for a good bit of time.

Rrom here it kind of goes downhill for me. Aroma is sweet and malty with just a hint of hops. Even though this is rather low in abv, the alcohol seems to have quite an aroma. What hops that are present are earthy and slightly floral, but this is a very mellow IPA.

Flavor was pretty malty ans sweet and not my bag. Plenty of floral hop flavor with very little bitterness. This is almost like a British pale ale; low bitterness, kind of sweet, quite malty.

I wasnt a fan of this at all. I like my IPAs bitter and dry and this was the exact opposite. Definitely more of an Englsih or East Coast IPa than west coast or california. I would not have this again.

On tap at O'Brien's

A: nice clear golden color with a thin bone white head.

S: Bready malt with some hop resin and something very herbal that reminds me of rosemary. Citrus as well.

T: Ugh. This just doesn't do it for me. A lot of pine hip bitterness with a ton more bitterness throughout and some biscuity malt as well. No particularly pleasant flavors to be found here.

Big commotion of hoppy aromatics is the best feature. Quite flowery and fragrant, and starts out with promise. Golden color in the Ommegang chalice, nice foam.

Light body with just a touch of biscuity malt. Serious grapefruit pith. Totally bitter aftertaste. Love it or hate it. There is nothing to say about this. It's just the Centennial and Summit hops. If they actually added lemon, lime, and orange zest to this brew, it's silly because it is buried under the grapefruit rind.

For some reason they felt obliged to put this in bottles.

Painted 22 oz. bomber served into a pint glass. The Frog's Breath pours a clear light gold in color and with a half inch of off white foam. A light carbonation from the bottom of the glass is just enough to keep a surface cap on the pour. A second and more robust pour yields better results as perhaps it was a bit too cold initially.

Offers a decent hop aroma wrapped up with a bit of lime in the delivery. Warming brings out more classic pine and citrus as the lime becomes more subdued. Not overly abundant and in fact a bit thin for an IPA however, yet fairly well integrated with spices.

Light sense of lime follows on the taste of this brew. Light citric bready character in the middle and a certain astringency on the finish that isn't really a hop driven bitterness. A decently lingering finish closes with another quick flash of lime infused grain. Lime surely trumps the lemon and orange zest added to this brew yet it remains subtle which matches a subtle hop character as well. Overall an easy drinking IPA though largely due to a lack of hop depth with just enough citrus and spice and malt to give it a plesant albeit interesting balance.
