Very solid and versaile IPA if you don't mind the slightly inflated price

Appearance: Orange-golden and unfiltered with minimal head

Smell: Hoppy goodness, citrus, and pine

Taste: Even more hoppy goodness with a slightly malty back

Mouthfeel: Strangely enough, it's missing the bitter kick up front; smooth and mellow

Drinkability: It's a crescendo of hops, very sippable but mellow enough to have with a meal

definitely a go to IPA. Color / head /lacing.... all perfect. Then the HOP head pleasing taste that's a bit lighter in feel than my other two favorites Ruination & Racer 5. If your tastes lean towards the Sierras & the Lagunitas, you should give this one a try. I like that it stays in the 6.5 - 6.8 abv range... enables the fruity start to have a very pleasing finish. For me the best part of this just about perfect IPA is the aftertaste, just outstanding.

got it fresh from the brewery today and got to meet fred karm, the man with the plan.

A- nice sticky looking orange-ish ivory head is a real intricate lace maker. retention is good and it settles to a nice thick chunky bubbly disk that just hovers a brilliant slightly hazy bright orange brew with golden highs and rising bubbles.

S- possibly the freshest ipa i've ever had, this fact is very evident in the nose. toasted citrus, tangerine, red grapefruit, white lilies, and mandarin orange jump right out with a good dose of toasted malt playing accompaniment. a little hazelnut and some aromatic resinous wood notes, not quite pine and not quite cedar, but something in-between. whatever it is, i like it and the floral citrus hops are outer space.

T- tastes is much like the smell- very fresh. amid the solid hop party, there are layers of pale and toasted barley, and grain husk dry-field summertime drought tastes. taste is very natural, rustic, and herbal. white grapefruit zesty bitterness presides the whole way through but is still kept nicely in check by gentle earthy hops. white flowers still hang in the back and become more pronounced in the dry spruce finish.

MF- very crisp and bracing, decent amount of malt makes for a nice medium body and medium level carbonation creates a velvety feel. resinous hops make for a dry astringent finish like mouthwash.

D- its crispness and freshness adds a quality that is also REfreshing and for any hop lover, it will be hard to put this one down. after visiting the small brewery and smelling all the malt in the air, i can easily envision this beer from start to finish and that seems to add to the appreciation i already have for small batch brewing. hearty enough for cold weather, yet cool enough for a hot summer night by the grill.

Pours a hazy golden amber orange with a two finger frothy off-white head that lasts throughout leaving chunky rings of soapy lacing throughout the glass.

Sweet citrus hops dominate with some nice floral and grapefruit notes. Slightly piney with subtle caramel malt background. The smell of this beer makes me salivate.

The flavor and mouthfeel of this beer live up to the aroma. Wonderfully bitter citrus and floral hops wih hints of grapefruit, orange peel and pine. Sweet caramel malt backbone provides an excellent balance without taking away from the hop dominance. Creamy medium body makes this ber extremely quaffable. I'm finding it hard to set my pint glass down and write this review. The 6.8 ABV is undetectable and I have to stop myself from pounding the whole bomber.

Although a lot less btter and hoppy than it's brother Mean Manalishi this is another amazingly smooth, well balanced easy drinking IPA from Hoppin Frog

A deep amber color, with a two finger thick, off white colored head. The scent of malt is surprisingly strong at the start, it is soon followed by an intense citrus aroma, that as sweet aroma to it, making not as overbearing as I would expect. The taste starts with that malt sweetness, then gradual growth of grapefruit and some lemon bitterness takes over, and stays on the palate till the end. Medium bodied, starts a bit thin at first, but it gains weight as it rolls across the palate. An easy drinking IPA, an evenly balanced flavor, plus a strong aroma, make this a very good beer.
