Crisp & satisfying American IPA with an assertive, refreshing hop aroma & flavor. Bright, spicy citrus hop character is up front, with a distinct orange & tropical fruit hop bouquet to add a welcome complexity & strike the perfect balance. Its all about the hops with Gangster Frog IPA!

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2016
American IPA from a 65 bottle bought at Bierhalle Deconinck. Frothy and thick, very moussy, foamy, egg-white head (very) slowly thinning in the middle, crowning a lightly hazy, warm and deep orange golden beer with peachy hue, low in visible fizz, turning a muddy orange-hued ochre with sediment added. Lush and dank, typical modern IPA aroma of dried grapefruit peel, sweet paprika, chicken spices, biscuit, green bell pepper, cumin cheese, lemon rind, passion fruit, dry marihuana, oregano, cheese crackers, orange-scented soap. Lively onset with clean yet vivid fruitiness of orange, passion fruit and green banana in a typical sweet and sour mixture, well-carbonated in a refined way fit for the style; minerally accents (very vaguely salty) as well. Supple, smooth, lightly oily mouthfeel, biscuity and lightly bready middle, crackers, providing a nice and sufficiently thick malty backbone for a growing, aromatic, spicy and grapefruity hop bitterness, drying the back of the mouth, bittering in a resinous and confident, long-lasting way and at the same time yielding lovely retronasal effects of red curry, lemon zest and sweet paprika. Accessible, well-balanced, juicy, aromatic IPA: no game changer perhaps, but a very pretty example of the style. Very suitable as an apéritif as well.

TET (2682) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2016
A hazy, light orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has delicious and sweet fruitness, peaches, mandarin, fructose, some citrusfruits, hint of vanilla and fruit candies. Taste has fruitness, fructose, peaches, some pine, medium bitterness that’s enough. Medium+ bodied, balanced carbonation. Age of this bottle is mysterious, propably some aging is happened. High-quality brewing again, great and fruitful aroma, tasteful.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6850) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a dark copper color with a medium sized creamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet with pine and cactus notes. The flavor was sweet yet bitter with pine, cactus and tequila. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

punkska101 (1763) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle shared thx Seb A: grapefruit, this one is surely old no date on the bottle, caramel, a mix of west coast old hops that I can’t identify. orange, herbacy App: murky light orange smallish white head t/p: med body with moderate bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: sadly I’m rating this low because I’m sure this bottle is old. Every brewery should have a clear bottling date.

22oz bottle pours a hazy yellow amber color with a bit of head. Sweet citrusy flavor and a little tropical flavor too. Yeast at the end.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2016
Bomber, no BB. Orange sur léger voile,col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est houblonné fort plaisant, renfermé, soupçon herbacée rappelant le thé matcha avec un rétro tropical virant sur la mangue. Petite note de grains assure la balance. Palais est fort plaisant, axé sur le tropical, mandarine, sorte de frisco, thé vert sur gazon frais, épaisseur en bouche niveau grains, avec un fini frais rappelant la mangue.
