Bottle from the brewery. Was a disappointment. Seems like the brewery is selling old bottles. Pours a clear reddish orange. Some fruity hop aroma but caramel an alcohol dominate. Some hop bitterness but really just a drain pour.

Shared with and courtesy of Longshot, co-member of the worst softball team in the history of southeastern Wisconsin. Copper with a medium wispy off-white crown. Aroma is dank and citrusy with caramel, mild pine and some floral notes lurking in the background. Taste is nice with floral hops, citrus, caramel, light woodiness and a mild bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bready caramel, citrus, and pine hop bitterness in the aroma. Flavor starts big and bitter, with underlying bread and dark fruit flavors, almost like a Belgian ale. Finish is also big and bitter, with some peppery spice and a fair amount of drying alcohol. Really, really good, but not for the squeamish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Trübes Bernstein mit guter Schaumkrone und zig Schwebeteilchen. Ami Hopfenaroma, etwas Ananas und viel Karamellmalz. Im Geschmack ebenso, mit etwas Pinie und reichlich bitter im Abgang. Für ein Double IPA zu aromenarm und viel zu sehr auf der Malzschiene. Enttäuschend langweilig.

Heavy hops aroma. The taste is also of course much hops but released soon to become very dry. What I did not like at all. Long aftertaste too. I liked this beer anyway. But it could have been any better.

9/25/2010. 22 oz. bottle. Pours light amber color with an off white head. Strong floral aromas with pine, citrus. Caramel flavors with plenty of hops. Very nice balance and the alcohol is not overwhelming. Well made.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a ton of small suspended particles. Small white head, dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing. Aroma is way caramel - this has to be an old bottle, but hey Hoppin’ Frog, put a fucking bottling date on your beers or take what you get! Flavor is stale IPA, caramel, some pine, cardboard, random bitterness. Light sweet, quite bitter with almost no actual flavor nuances to go with it. Yuk. About 21 ounces of this baby was dumped into the hotel room toilet, which seems a fitting end for such an old stale beer.

A very bitter, earthy hop monster. I can understand why they named it "Mean" Manalishi. If you are a true hop head, you should love this beer. Very good beer, just a bit too harsh for me, and I have had some intense hoppy beers.
