Frog-Get About It by Metazoa Brewing Co. was reviewed under BJCP Style 21A: American IPA.

Popping the cap immediately releases rich hop aromas that build during the pour as citrus rind, a light touch of melon, tropical fruit and a dash of berry aromas. The aroma hits all the bases supported by low, clean grainy malt notes with no grassiness to interfere. The pour settles down to brilliant copper gold under a robust and persistent slightly off-white cap. A big hoppy fruit and citrus push on the tongue with some pleasant spicy notes build to an assertive hop presence that dries the beer out on the finish and pleasantly lingers. The clean hop flavors soften the bitterness, leaving nothing sharp or astringent. The beer is medium-bodied with medium carbonation and leaves a faint alcohol warming after finishing the glass. Frog-Get About it will delight those looking for a balanced American IPA that hits all the right notes with nothing getting in the way.
