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.

On tap at Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and grapefruit aromas. Taste is much the same with a malty finish. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors.

A- Frog's Breath pours out beautiful with a burnt orange, bright gold color. A good two fingers of off white/tan head rises up quick and stays, leaving a rocky mountain look on the top. Great lacing and no sediment seen floating.

S- Smelled it as soon as it came to me. This IPA is rich with hop scent giving off big juicy citrus and tropical fruits. A bit of sweetness, almost candi like from the malts, but it's quite masked under the hop bill. Smells wonderful.

T- For a IPA, this is bold and tasty. Big grapefruit with some mango and some floral taste all at once. Finishes off a bit sweet with candi from the malt background with slight toasty breads. Citrus hops rule in this one with some trace pine and lemon flavor

M- There is a nice bitterness in the middle and afterwards, but nothing I cant handle, in fact Im digging the little kick it gives my mouth. There is a slight bit of alcohol coming through, barely enough to realize. A little lighter than medium bodied with not too much carb. A long aftertaste.

D- I really enjoyed this. The flavors coming from the hop bill scream DIPA, and the bitterness is a bit high making for a very drinkable IPA. I wish i could have this on a daily basis, which in the future, i probably will.

Stone Brew

11-05-11 – Bitter Saturday
*16oz tulip

A: Pours a light straw color with some caramel tones to it. Hazy with a sea foam white cap. Nice retention and waves of lace upon the glass.

S: Smells like fresh cut grass with some light pines. Aromas are subtle. Some stone fruits in there as well.

T: Flavors are fruity hops – peachy for sure. Some bready pale malts and spice. Decent hop bitterness. Sugary but not sweet. Good balance with no alcohol presence.

M: Nice mouthfeel. Lighter in body. Somewhat creamy texture. Good carbonation.

D: It’s an okay IPA. Lighter body and good mix between hops and malts to give a nice balance. Fruit, bread, and spice flavor profile overall.

Glad to have tried this one but probably not worth ordering again. I have definitely had better from Coronado.

On tap at URGE.

A: Very hazy yellow fold with a creamy white head.

S: Tangerine, peach, grapefruit, nectarine, and cantaloupe. Aromatic floral notes emanate from the glass.

T: An even blend of rind and flesh from orange and grapefruit. Surprisingly nice. I get some pine and floral notes. Light cracker is evident.

M: Lower medium in body with upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: Good. I'm glad I ordered this. Better than I expected.
