One of the absolute highest IBUs you will ever find, here is Hoppin’ Frog Mean Manalishi Double IPA.
The hops nearly knock you out with the smell, with a white head that doesn’t quit. I like the deep copper color, but the amount of sediment has me a little concerned.
This is definitely a hop bomb with pine, grapefruit, and some spice. Long, insanely dry, and bitter finish. Some pucker factor
If I’m honest, the 168 IBUs (yes, 168) had me thinking this one would literally be a tough one to swallow. And while it’s huge and hard hitting, it’s not as “mean” as I expected.
Worth trying just to say you’ve done it. It’s an experience.
P.S. This Judas Priest song is, in fact, required listening while imbibing Mean Manalishi
