22 ounce bottle, very fresh bottle, picked it up at the brewery. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a dense 2 finger off white head with incredible retention that reduces to a lacing cap. Some very nice lacing coats the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, caramel, pine, and spices. 22 ounce bottle. Nice blend of grapefruit, orange and its nicely balanced. The bitterness is quite overtaking, but it’s a nice parallell to the fruity taste. The aftertaste is a delight. A nice IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Sammakko IPA hypähtää lasiin utuisena ja oranssisena muodostaen valkoisen vaahdon. Tuoksu on hurmaavan metsäinen, havuinen ja hedelmäinen. Maussa on havuja, puisia elementtejä, katkeruutta ja hedelmiä. Hedelmissä löytyy greippiä, mangoa, persikkaa ja appelsiinia. Raikkaan makuinen IPA, jonka suutuntumastakaan ei tahdo virheitä löytyä. Solahtaa miellyttävän notkeasti kurkusta alas, eikä ole ylihiilihappoinen tai vetinen. Yksi parhaista tyylilajinsa edustajista aivan varmasti.

foxo82 (683) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle conditioned from beersofeurope.com. Opaque orange with a huge head of foam and loads of lacing. Floral, grainy hoppy aroma with banana. This tastes absolutely delicious - initial smoke giving way to sweet pineapple but then with a bitter hoppy kick, supremely balanced between dry and sweet. Smooth and thick. I could fill this box with superlatives but I’d rather enjoy drinking this.

Excellent citusy hop flavor and finish. It is medium bodied without hop-derived astringency. Thkis is a moderatly strong American IPA and I highly recommend it.

Hoppin’ Frog Hoppin’ to Heaven IPA is a pretty clear amber ale with a few particles in it. The dense, bubbly, off white head thins to a film and stays put. It leaves fancy lacing on the glass. It has a strong citrus aroma-- the kind you can smell from across the room. It’s fresh and leafy. It has a soft, fluffy, medium body with a dry finish that leaves the tongue feeling a little singed. This is a big, fruity, juicy IPA. It’s mostly grapefruit but there are almost hints of pineapple and peach. It gets more bitter as the taste goes on. It goes from fruit to pine resin. It’s not really sweet or dry. This is all about delivering maximum hop flavor. The malt takes a back seat, but it’s strong enough to support things. It gets a little peppery at the finish. The black pepper flavor lingers with with pine resin for a little while after the swallow. Yeah, this is a bang-up IPA. This is treading into double IPA territory.

Dorqui (2104) - Brescia, ITALY - FEB 15, 2013
Bottled. Pretty amber/orange color, much hazy with a beautifull bubbly aspcet. Incredible and foamy resistant head of long long duration. Powerfull hop aroma, citrus notes with rumors of floral aged grapes, resin, cortex. Much round and surrounding taste, smooth start, bitter interlude and arid final. Unbelievably persistance of flowery and hoppy notes. Wonderfull beer.

An exceptional IPA. Very nicely balanced, and amber colored. Crisp with some grassy and mild citrus hops.
