jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle courtesy of alexsdad06 pours amber-orange w/ a crisp hop nose. Virtually no head. Possibly my new favorite IIPA. Awesome. Glad he sent me 2 bottles.

pineypower (2635) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Thanks to Santa for this one. Pours out a reddish hue of copper with a moderate fluffy off white head. Aroma is intense with floral, pine and citrus hops. Hops smack you in the face right off the bat with pine and citrus hops. Some malty sweetness lingering in the background calm down the hop assault a bit to make this a very well balanced beer. Very enjoyable, wish I could locate some more of this. Big time thanks to Santa!

MadIndian (2512) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle sampled with stegosaurus care of a Drbayern trade.Amber pour. Pine, hop and citrus aroma. Nice hop presence but I just thought it was ok for me. Could have been blended a little bit better but still a good beer.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle sampled with Mad_indian, thanks to DrBayern for sending this to me. Pours amber with a large fluffy beige head, that hangs aropund until the brew is fionished. Aroma of pine, spices, citrus, and light fruit. The flavor is a bitter pine and spices explosion upfront, mellowing out to a citrusy dry caramel finish.

Bottle. Deep orange amber in color with a thin off white head. Citrus pine hoppy aroma. Malty and hoppy piney flavor. Caramel toffee citrus notes. Sweet but not sticky sweet. Finish is bitter. Well balanced. Medium bodied. Drinkable. Very nice.

shigadeyo (3096) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2007
7/12/2007: Hoppin’ Frog Mean Manalishi is just overflowing with super fresh hop aroma. The color is hazy ruby-amber and there is a thin, frothy off-white head. Fresh citrus, pine, and grassy hops dominate the aroma. There is a bit of toffee malt to the flavor, but the hop flavors really dominate. The bitterness level is high, but it really isn’t that bad and it definitely isn’t stomach crunching. Either my palate has adapted to high IBU beers or this beer really doesn’t have that high of a bitterness level. Either way, the bitterness is actually quite subtle and is well-paired with the hop flavor. The alcohol is also extremely well hidden. Mean Manalishi is an extremely well-crafted Imperial/Double IPA and is the next best Hoppin’ Frog beer behind <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/hoppin-frog-bori the Crusher. Mmm... HOPS!

22 oz bottle (8.2% alc./vol., 84 OG, 26 FG, 168 IBU) from River’s Bend Wine and Spirits. Rating #33 for this beer...

hopdog (9453) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Sampled from a 22oz bottle courtesy of TomDecapolis. Poured a deeper orangish/amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas hops and more hops! Citrus, oranges, pine, tropical fruits, melons and some caramel. Tastes of toasted malts, citrus, pine, and caramel. Hop heads, like me, will enjoy this one!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bomber, courtesy of alexsdad06 (thanks!), pours a clear amber with a well formed foamy tan head that persists, great lacing. Stong aroma of pine, citrus and some caramel. Flavor is a spicy hop bite gently tempered by caramel malts to mellow it out. This has a great hops presence, but fades out nicely. This is a well done IIPA, and my new favorite Hoppin Frog!

TomDecapolis (4590) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Thanks to ogglethorp for the trade. Pours a lightly hazy deeper copper/amber with a medium off white bubbly head that left some sticky lacing. Aroma of all out hops...loads of orange, some pine, floral notes and then some caramel malt to balance. Really like this over the top hop aroma...great mix of the hops and a light malt balance. Flavor of hops, some tea, toasted malts, caramel, walnuts, some pine, hop bitterness with a decent malt balance without being overly sticky.

TURDFERGUSON (4004) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle shared with Ryan at my apartment in Carrboro, NC July 13th, 2007. Amber pour with a light tan head. Nose is rippling with hops-particularly citrus and pine. Flavor is very hoppy as well, with a little bit of malt balance, but mainly this is just a hop bomb. Not an incredible amount of complexity in this one, but the flavors it does have it does very well. I enjoyed this as I do most of the products from this brewery. Thanks for sending this Andrew!!
