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!

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 (2059) - 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.

3.8
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 (3150) - 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.

3.7
Leafs93 (2343) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2013
Pours pale gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus, pine and grass...lots of hoppyness. Taste is bitter with a touch of sweetening. Medium bodied with a dry, crisp finish.

3.9
Beerathon (1681) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Floral nose from the hops is upfront and present the whole way through. This was a very good 2XIPA.

Great ipa. Pale malted, lighter color. Piny deliciousness. Had at brewpub, always fresh there.

DeputyAndy (636) - 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.

3.8
mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
[4664-20120817] Tap. Sweat and fresh pine resin and lemon evergreen needle hops aroma. Hazy, light brown orange with a quick foamy white head. Lemon zesty evergreen hops flavour is bitter with a great citrusy background. Medium body. Delicious. (7/3/8/4/16) 3.8

ekoerper (599) - 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.
