dsw4b (5) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle to pint glass; pours a deep orange to amber color with a thin but ample head. Notes of grapefruit and pine really stick out, and the hop bitterness is superb. The bitterness lingers and grows more intense through the finish. Unlike many DIPAs, the emphasis seems to be on balancing the hops with malt rather than the reverse. This makes this beer seem much less sweet than the bulk of DIPAs.

gripweed57 (1412) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2016
22 ounce bottle. Pours a deep Amber orange color topped by medium sized frothy beige cap with nice lacing. Caramel malt and pine needle hop nose. First sip follows the nose. Sweet caramel malt is balanced by the big piney hoppiness. Notes of black pepper, biitter citrus peel and alcohol finish this DIPA nicely. Very drinkable.

shadey (2084) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2016
22oz bottle. Birthday Beer! Pours a clear amber with a nice sticky head of mixed bubbles and cream. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is beautiful malt and sticky hops. Of course the alcohol is high and the hops are plentiful, but Hoppin Frog brings these components together seamlessly and with artistry. The malts are sweet, chewy, delicious, and clean. The hops are sticky and bitter. The alcohol is present but an after-thought that doesn’t impede the enjoyment in any way. Excellent.

Bule (1889) - California, USA - JUL 24, 2016
22oz bottle pours a pale reddy brown color with a bit of head. Total malt bomb with great balance on the sweetness and hop balance. Some fruity hop flavors.

vandc01 (353) - North Branch, USA - JUL 23, 2016
22oz bottle poured at home with no bottling or enjoy by date. Beautiful pouring beer - was hoping for a little more aroma, but is a very tasty beer. Definitely can taste the caramelized portion of this beer - usually not a feature I am a huge fan of, but this is pretty good. Lots of IBU’s jammed into this bottle.

Pours copper with a big foamy head. The aroma is a sticky caramel aroma, I love that in real strong IPA’s like RuinTEN. This has a very sweet maltness to it with a nice bitter finish. It’s not as good as ruinTEN but it’s a nice substitute.
