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!

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub, served in a shaker. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that fades to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has huge pungent notes of resin and grapefruit, along with a smaller amount of tropical fruit. Pale malts and grass are present, but subdued. The flavour is moderately bitter with resinous notes and grapefruit peel coming to the fore. Bitterness picks up on the back side, leading to a long, bitter resinous finish with a touch of pepper. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky texture and average carbonation. Overall a very nice IPA with a huge resin-citrus nose and an impressive bitterness to match. Very well done. 2014-04-27

NeuroPliny (245) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Tasted at Bullfrog (Wlliamsport, PA) with ML. On tap. Pours cloudy gold with pale white head. Aroma is classic IPA hops, citrus, and pine, with notes of grass, but with sweet malts as well. Flavour is a well polished balance of pleasantly bold hops and malts. Fine IPA. A perfect way to start the day :).

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2013
On tap at Pinocchios, Media. Very nice to see this on tap. Bullfrogs 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.
