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!

Bottle from jmikolich, thanks Jim! Great aroma on this. Very balanced IPA, lots of malt but it adds to the mouthfeel. Awesome beer.

Pours a hazy bright rust orange. Has a strong amazing aroma of grapefruit, and citrus and floral hops. Taste isn’t as great as aroma - a malty taste with caramel and citrus hops. A strong lingering caramel malt taste.

TheCaptMatey (176) - Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2015
Poured a hazy dark copper colour with a fluffy off white head that left thin lacing. Aroma is floral herbs and citrus(orange amd grapefruit) with bready malts. Flavor is oranges, herbs, toasted and bready malt. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and slightly chewy mouthfeel. Assertive hop bitterness on the finish that lingers with elements of citrus. Very palatable for an IPA, but not as impressive as their other brews.

Bottle. Orange pour with white head. Herbal and grassy aromas. Flavors are similarly hoppy, grassy and herbal tones.

dmac (4510) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bomber from Xroads. Poured a very slight hazed broze body with a smaller to average sized foamy off white head. Aroma of tropical fruit rinds, lime, tangerine, oranges, bread and grains. Medium to full body, super creamy mouthfeel and softer to average carbonation. Flavor of older oranges, wet bread crusts, lime, slight touch of earthy hop cones. Solid but not great.

pineypower (2667) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours out a decently cloudy copper color with a nice off white head. Aroma is of some nice juicy citrus and tropical fruits, orange peel, light bread crust, mild floral notes, citrus rind. Taste is complex, lots of juicy citrus, tropical fruits, floral hops, some light bready notes, oranges , light mango. Nice hop profile on this one and pretty drinkable.

ben4321 (4465) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Uptown, 4/2/15

Aroma: The aroma of this one is juicy and fruity, grapefruit mostly, fairly sweet and pretty fresh
Appearance: Clear orange pour, with a small froth of off-white head, and drippy lace spots on the glass
Flavor: Flavor-wise, it is much like the nose, juicy grapefruit sweetness and a mid-plus hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with a nice mouthfeel, fairly smooth, with a nice, dry finish to it
Overall Impression: I actually really enjoyed this. A very nice grapefruit component gives a good fruity sweetness and a pretty enjoyable hop bitterness as well. This goes down nicely, a 22 went down like it was nothing.

Wow. So citrusy and juicy. Very delicious IPA - aroma forward, and not in the pine tree vane but the tropical fruit. Awesome.

tonypreto (130) - Akron, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
22 oz bottle poured into glass. Very great citrus, piney, hoppy aroma. Pours a wonderful golden yellow with a slight off white head that dissipates steadily. Very west coast IPA feel to it. Citrus notes with a great carbonation. Mouthfeel was on point as well. Impressed.

Tap at the BORIS Van Wink Release. Pour is very hazed deep amber with an off white head. Nose is huge citrus blast, orange peel and hints of grapefruit with a small touch of doughy malt underneath. Taste follows suit on hops, huge hop explosion. Tons if juicy orange citrus with some grapefruit notes and bitterness. Notes of dough malt and some cereal grains. Lighter body with nice carbonation and a pillowy feel. Bitterness lingers through the finish.
