I'm not sure if I have tried enough Hoppin Frogs, so I am setting out to remedy that. What a nice way to start.

It opens a quality brew, with nice head (a bubble sat on the top of the bottle for two minutes), and great lacing.

The aroma is pungent. There is coffee there, but there also is hops feel to it like a bag of reefer. This comes through in the taste too. Beyond just coffee porter is a pungent hops tang (akthough not much bitterness).

The aftertaste is a fleeting twang. Overall this brew is great, but I wish they had take it a notch higher, and I see other bombers in the store, so maybe they did.

Moderate coffee flavor is good but not great.
Long lasting aftertaste. Medium-light body seems a touch too thin.
Dark roasted grains struggle to peak through the coffee.
