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!

RRistow12 (215) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with white head that lasts a while. Nice lacing present. Citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Taste is a nice clean fruity bitterness throughout. Good malt backbone. Orange, lemon, grapefruit and some floral notes. Very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glennmastrange (2205) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of roasted, caramel, pine and orange, light dough for the yeast, with date and dried cherry in the background. Head is small to average in size, frothy/fizzy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a carbonation between soft and lively. I think I can say that this brewery knows how to make their IPAs.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2014
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark orange beer under a solid creamy beige foam; long lasting; nice lacework; very fruity hoppiness (apricot, peaches and melon); light yeasty and with hints of marzipan; very tasty and lively, full-bodied, subtle yet fair carbonation, fairly bitter and very dry; long fruity hoppy finish again with some flowery tones - great beer

1FastSTi (3333) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle shared by Chuck. I didn’t get the off components that he did. The beer was a murky straw colored body with a white head. Grassy and some fruity hops in the beer. There were spicy components too. The mouthfeel was medium-full bodied. I actually liked this beer.

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Une belle bouteille partagée avec slovak. Un liquide orange avec une mousse mince. Un nez d’agrumes, d’alcool et de de sucre roux (semble vielle). Une bouche amère, forte mais agréable. Un classique de double IPA dans le registre sucré.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Kind of golden hued and hazy. Off white foam. This is floral with soft bitterness. Malty and yeadty. This is as much a saison as it is an IPA. Some citrus. Decent stuff.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Une robe orangée et passablement embrouillée. Une tête mousseuse qui fait le poids. Un gros nez de malts toastés et caramélisés avec des houblons fruités aromatiques. Je ne dirais pas que cette IPA est trop vieille : je pense que sa structure est ainsi faite. Décidément, je ne suis plus habitué à ce genre d’IPA caramélisée. Avec HF et autres sublimes brasseries, on s’attend désormais à une base maltée plutôt pâle. Sur les papilles, les céréales montrent des allures de caramel au beurre. Il me semble ici que c’est un peu vieux. Honnêtement, je ne sais plus quoi penser. Je goûte tout de même à des mangues bien mûres avec une touche d’oranges amères. En bouche, le liquide est costaud et cette impression transporte mes papilles sur le territoire de la DIPA/BW à l’américaine. En finale, je trouve quelques notes amères qui rebondissent sur une base maltée bien tendue par la douceur d’un caramel tiède. Vieille IPA ou IPA maltée? À lire les précédents textes, je me rends compte que tous notent le caractère malté fort. Enfin, ma propre idée est faite : cela ne m’allume pas particulièrement. Loin d’être mauvais mais loin de mon idéal.
