    I will grab a bottle when it first comes out. Unfortunately Hoppin Frog forgot to bottle date, so I don't want risk the $$ if it remains rotating only to get a bad bottle.

    I'm going to head to the brewery next Saturday to snag a few bottles. Usually Hoppin Frog beers are "BOOM! in your face, over the top", curious to see what they do with Citra hops (one of my favorite hops).

    I am a big fan of Hoppin Frog (Boris) and will buy this if and when it comes to Chicago because I know it is fresh. I have to say though that after my last couple Hoppin Frog IPA purchases they were stale and drain pours. Which was the final straw for me and buying undated IPA time sensitive beers.

    Sounds awesome. Glad to see more ohio breweries adopting west coast style ipas. But like everyone has said already "no bottle date" is going to scare me away if its rotated.

    Some of the Hoppin Frog labels look awful, but this one looks awesome. Hopefully I get to visit the brewery during the release on Friday. Sounds fun.

    I most likely will buy one bottle, but $8 for a 22oz IPA? I love HF but their prices suck donkey dick.

    will try to grab a bottle of this when it comes out. hoppin' frog are unproven for me hoppy pale ale-wise, but BORIS/DORIS/BA BORIS are some of my favorite beers. BA naked evil no joke either.

    I believe so. I'll be at the brewery on Friday and ask. Also, I'll probably drink it that day as well :]

    Thanks for quoting me. I forgot about this thread. It is being distributed along normal channels. I'm not a HUGE hop guy, but this was a quality IPA. I hope you enjoy it when you get it! I'm actually about to change my profile picture to the Hoppin Frog, Frog... haha.

    I have to admit I stay away from Hoppin Frog because of their cartoonish labels. Not necessarily on purpose, but there are so many other beers on the shelf the attract my attention. This is wrong and I shouldn't let the labels dictate my beer purchases. But it does. I have actually enjoyed the very few Hoppin Frog brews I have had (BORIS and DORIS) but look past them in the stores. The marketing has poisoned me.
