COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the story goes, I was redesigning our IPA to be bigger and better. As it came together, it started to take on a life of its own. After much deliberation and several pints of our new creation, we decided to name him after the master of the macabre, Edgar Allen Poe, as a tribute to his aptly named short story "Hop Frog". As Edgar fermented and spewed his almost abusive hop aroma throughout the pub, his legend and our thirst grew until finally one day, he was released into the world. We hope Edgar amuses you as much as he has us but stay on his good side, because, much like the story, this Hop Frog bites back!

Jeez louise, this was a solid IPA. So refreshing after a long day of bike riding. Delicious. I’d order it again in a heartbeat.

Tap from source. Hazy straw with dissipating head. Smells nice a well balanced blend of pine, peach, and dank. Flavor is a little heavy and dank.

Heavy citrus scent. Initial taste is very floral. Can't really describe the separate flavored but it calms quick on the palate and is pretty enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cheap (5216) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Tap bocktown. Slight aroma of BO. Clear pale. Bitter ipa from the start. It impacts like a roto tiller across yer taste buds, ruins you for the night. Difficult bitter medicine. Perhaps a little viscous. This stuff is quite smooth on the up take then it kicks you in the jaw, wew. What else can be said, terribly on style. I don’t care for it but you’ll like it if yer into IPA.

Not very well balanced but nice enough. It certainly bites back but still undecided if that’s in a good way or not.

deyholla (9915) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Growler thanks to Brian! Pours a a clear orangish amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a combination of grass and sweet virus with a bread backbone. Flavor has lots of sweet citrus backed by earthy grains and a bit of bread.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2015
New England Bucket List Trip #207. Keg at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of tropical, citrus hops and toffee malt. The taste is toffee malt, piney, earthy, citrus hops and some green olive notes. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.
