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!

Growler shared by durwoodx. Thanks Darrell! The beer is clear and bright orange with a small head and minimal lacing. The aroma is primarily of candied citrus fruits. The flavor brings more of the same. The beer is very hop forward, with little malt presence. The feel is a bit sweet and sticky and coats the palate with a lasting bitterness. Overall, another solid beer from Bullfrog. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 04-17-2011

Draft. Golden orange pour with white head. Citrus, pine, earthy grassy hop notes dominate this brew. Nice and fresh, aromas are similar if a bit muted at this temperature.

I’ve had this beer many times and the recipe changes every few years. This is for the current Edgar on tap. Very hazy dark gold pour. Nice off white head that eventually recedes into a white ring that stays for the whole pint. Nose is pinapple, mixed tropical fruit, fresh citrus zest ( orange, grapefruit and lemon). There is a mild malt presence in the nose as well. Flavor follows the nose exactly! This is an excellent IPA/IIPA. Medium body. If this were a tad more drinkable, it would be amazing. However, I did take a couple growlers for my weekend in the woods with my In-laws.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Orange amber body with a massive, creamy head. Lasts for a few minutes before dieing down to a nice skim. Good amount of lacing clings to the edges of the glass. S: The first word that came to my mind was "fresh." The nose was a very clean, bright, and invigorating combination of grapefruit, pineapple and other citrus notes. Some toffee like malts form a nice canvas for the bright bitter notes to pop like paint on a Jackson Pollock painting. T: Much of the same here. To steal a line or two from Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels... "I asked you to give me a refreshing drink. I wasn’t expecting a fucking rainforest! You could fall in love with an orangutan in that!" ... Very nice tropical fruit flavoring with a nice bitter edge. M: Medium bodied with healthy carbonation and a nice oily and refreshing finish. O: Top notch, my favorite regular Bullfrog offering to date.

Piney piney piney. An overhopped piney ipa. Not offensive at all, I just prefer floral or citrus hops. Decent though.

Pine, grapefruit & caramel in he nose - pretty sweet. Flavor is melon, tropical fruit & piney hops with a serious sweet malt hit. Big bitterness.

8/29/2009 Picked this up at the brewpub on a recent trip with the family. I was bummed I could not to try it on tap. Pours an almost clear orange amber with a good sized fluffy white head that sticks around for a while. Earthy citrus hops dominate the aroma while the caramel that is deep beneath tries to find a voice. Slight mineral almost phenolic aroma puts me off a little. Taste is a slightly astringent citrus grass and earth hoppy kinda thing with wisps of sweet malt buried beneath. Mouthfeel is sticky, body is medium, carbonation is ample. Not a bad ipa, the slight astringency turned this one for me.
