Hoppin’ Frog Fresh Frog Raw Hop Imperial Pale Ale
Hoppin’ Frog Fresh Frog Raw Hop is an American Double/Imperial IPA. This wet hop ale was one of the bottles Lee brought back to share with us from his trip to Cleveland. I don’t think this makes it out to their wider distribution circles, so that effort is greatly appreciated. Although enjoyable, I don’t usually go out of my way for a lot of Fresh Hop Ales, but this one I found pretty impressive. Very “light” and drinkable for a 7.8% IPA, lots of grapefruit citrus and mild pine hops. This is complimented by a perfectly sweet malt base. This did not feel watered down or thin like a lot of fresh hop beer do to me. I hope I get to drink this again!
