bottle, from someone who shall remain nameless. Good aroma, sweet. Citrus, peach, little bubblegum, toffee/caramel. Clean brownish orange color, small to no head, minor lace. Bittersweet flavor, loses the sweetness, grapefruit, soap, little roastiness creeps in, caramel. medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet dry finish. I was enjoying the subtlies of the aroma, that was unfortunately lost in the flavor

Lowe1983 (1342) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops, caramel, and a spice I can’t quite identify. Flavor starts off strong of the citrus and pine hops that give way to the spice and caramel. Nice bitter finish that lingers. Almost seems like an imperial IPA with it’s aroma and hoppiness. Very delicious.

Capa (1942) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JAN 15, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2009 Pours a deep amber with a large fluffy off white head. Aroma is big on citrus and grass hops. Grapefruit being the most noticeable. Also has a bit of spices in the aroma. Mouth is a little thin, but not bad. Flavor is big on the citrus and grass with a good hop bite. Finishes pretty bitter. This is a solid IPA, but I wish the palate was less watery. I’ll enjoy this again.

Hey this is not bad from a brewer who has "black & tan" as one of their offerings. A lite ruby color with a small head. Initial citrus aroma that diminishes quickly. A decent hop bite with a typical IPA bodied beer. Decent beer from NE Ohio.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2007
22oz bottle pours copper witha pretty nice tan head and good lace. Aroma is quite hoppy with nice grapefruit and pine notes over good sweet caramel malts. Flavor is quite balanced but it does lean a little to the hoppy side.. Lots of grapefruit and pine and some good caramel and a little toffee there as well. Medium body with good carbonation and a nice balanced smooth body.

Tmoney99 (10068) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle from Rivers Bend. Poured a clear copper color with an average off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Heavy hoppy citrus and pine aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium hoppy bitter flavor with a full hoppy citrus bitter finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Bottle from Riversbend: Pours a nice golden amber color with a nice white head. The smell is filled with citrus and pine. It smells great. The taste is a little watery, but there is definitely the usualy IPA flavor, pine, citrus, earth. Not the best IPA ever, but this Hoppin Frog company is growing on me, can’t wait to try more by them.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Sampled on 1/05/2007 at River’s Bend. Thanks Matt! -- Hoppin Frog "Hoppin to Heaven" IPA is an orange-amber color (clear) with a medium beige-colored head. This beer is very aromatic is bursting with hops and hop aroma and flavors of all kind: piney, resin-like, and some citrus as well. The flavor has a lightly toasted caramel maltiness. Then comes the intense hop flavors (pine, citrus, resin) and bitterness. The hoppiness carries through the long, slightly dry finish (almost reminds me of a rye beer). The mouthfeel is thicker than average (just right for me) and quite smooth. Overall, this is an excellent IPA and my 3rd favorite of the Hoppin Frog brews... 22 oz bottle.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Pours a mostly translucent ruby orange amber with a medium foamy off white head that left nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and spicy hops, nice caramel malt balance. Some pine and grapefruit. Personal preference would be to have more up front hops in the aroma. Still nice though. Flavor of toasty/caramel malts, some grapefruity/pine and some hop bitterness. More on the malty side of the IPA scale. Yet with a decent amount of hop bitterness and flavor. Earthy...just overall would want more from the hops to put this one over the top good.
