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.

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. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

��La longueur en bouche est moindre, seul un goût d amertume subsiste à la fin d'une gorgée . À boire très fraîche ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beaucoup d amertume après une pétillante touche de houblon typique des IPAs ... Et on fini avec une note plus chaude de malt caramélise. C est sympa et joli mais il manque unepetit qqch pour un gros whouaaa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at WWT III. Pours hazy orange with a small to medium white head. Aroma has caramel, pine, sweetness, bit oxidized. Taste has quite some pine, caramel, and a bitterness that is a bit on the harsh side. Bit too old and bitter for me, but still quite good.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2013
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.

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.
