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!

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2013
Pours light hazy golden with an orange hue. Aroma brings some sweet and lightly juicy citrus lemon notes, so clean. Flavor brings a hop citrus bitter bite, so nice, that settles so well on the palate, definitely a smooth bite. Body is juicy and just a tad syrupy.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Draft at Capone’s. Pours a hazy yellow with very little head. Aroma is slightly dank citrus hops. Taste is pretty dry, which allows the hop flavor to dominate the feel. Not overly bitter and slightly prickly in its flavor. Not over the top and very drinkable.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Lots of citrus and pine resin in the nose, floral and aromatic. Light golden pour, white head with decent retention and lacing. Flavor is nicely balanced, fairly hop-forward with some toasty malt and a hint of sweetness. Grapefruit, some tropical fruit, pine, moderate-high bitterness with a nice hoppy finish, alcohol is noticeable but unoffensive. Medium body and carbonation. A very nice IPA.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Fresh growler courtesy of Frank. Pours a bright, hazy orange body with nice white lacing that lasts throughout. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, light funk and tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is medium, super sessionable and refreshing with notes of bitter grapefruit, lemon, pine, light dank herb, light floral flavors, and a dry finish. Super Fresh.

PhillyCraft (2847) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Growler courtesy of Frank. This was a fresh hop Edgar made with Citra. Hazy somewhat glowing orange copper pour, medium white head and lacing. Notes of skunk, wood, pine, grapefruit, light melon, tropical zest, and some more bitter and dry lemon wood flavors in the finish. Kept going back for this and the amarillo hopgasm during the sess. Dankness.

2012-08-17. Lightly hazy golden orange body with a small head. Pleasant flavour with lots of sweet orange citrus, hints of melon and tropical fruit, tangerine. Modest bitterness throughout suits it.7++ Smooth average plus bodied palate is softly carbonated. 3+ Sweet orange citrus in the aroma, tangerine notes, and mild leafy green hop touches as it warms up. Quite nice. Very drinkable, and the best beer on tap today by far. On tap at Bullfrog, Williamsport
