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!

Very nice beer. Pours a light amber with a thin head, The aroma has a good bit of fruit and citrus. The flavor is sweet up front but gives way to a nice hop bite. Dry and refreshing.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2013
On tap at Pinocchio’s, Media. Very nice to see this on tap. Bullfrog’s no longer the "it" beer, since the hype machine has turned elsewhere, but their offerings are still super good. Luminous orange pour, with a sizable head. Bright and fresh looking. Nose is very dry, with bitter grapefruit and some peach in there too. Full, buoyant mouthfeel with just a touch of bitterness on the tongue. Taste is quite grassy and pungent, though the fruits are still in there quite pleasantly. Pretty damn good.

Goodgrief (1811) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 25, 2013
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Light golden pour...smallish head. Aroma of tropical fruit. This one is citrus hops...not much else. Thin in the mouth. It was okay...but a bit disappointing.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2013
On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. Expected a pretty average IPA, but this was a tasty blend of hops with just enough bite going down. Pretty impressive brew.

Damico (2680) - 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.
