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!

From growler - medium orangeish color - off white head. Big hop aroma, citrus, grapefruit, fresh cut grass, wood, and other fruits. Bold hop flavor that exploded on the tongue. Body was slightly resiny, but smooth . Clean, dry finish.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours opaquely cloudy orange gold with beige head. The aroma is toast, mango, citrus and pine. The flavor is very toasty with bitterness almost immediately. Not as fruity as the aroma. Some dark pumperknickel like malt lingers there, too. Dry, earthy finish.

The words are TOO DARN HOPPY! Wow, and not in a pleasant and enjoyable way either. This was tear your head off and laugh at you beer. Not to my liking at all.

Draught at Capones. Orange amber body with thin head. Aroma is a strong hoppy bite to the nose, malty. Flavor is the same with a strong after taste. Pretty good IIPA.

on tap @ Capones. Hazy orange in color with a small off white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma is a good amount of pine and citrus, with some pale malts in the background. Taste is citrus and floral with a strong pine bitterness throughout. Body is medium to full. Bitterness lingers long after the finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Growler. Poured a hazy amber color with a decent sized off-white head. Big hop forward aroma with floral and citrus notes. Sweet malt pokes out from underneath. Hoppy floral and citrus flavor. The sweet malt leaves completely midway through leaving hops and a growing bitterness for the moderately long finish.
