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!

The words are TOO DARN HOPPY! Wow, and not in a pleasant and enjoyable way either. This was tear your head off and laugh at you beer. Not to my liking at all.

Pours bright orange with a one finger white head with good lacing. Aroma is of citrus,, pine, tropical fruits, grass, herbal notes, and light bready malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, hoppy IPA.

Some peel and some citrus. Amber pour with decent head and lacing. Bitter finish with some caramel. Tap at Snally.

On tap at the Backyard Alehouse in Scranton. It pours a clear golden color with a creamy off white head. The aroma is lightly floral with a little peach and grapefruit. The flavor is huge citrus and herbal bitterness. A little peach and grapefruit too. Medium bodied with a little caramel/honeyed malt. The strong herbal/piney bitterness isn’t really my favorite, but otherwise this was ok.

Jeez louise, this was a solid IPA. So refreshing after a long day of bike riding. Delicious. I’d order it again in a heartbeat.

Tap from source. Hazy straw with dissipating head. Smells nice a well balanced blend of pine, peach, and dank. Flavor is a little heavy and dank.

Heavy citrus scent. Initial taste is very floral. Can't really describe the separate flavored but it calms quick on the palate and is pretty enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap bocktown. Slight aroma of BO. Clear pale. Bitter ipa from the start. It impacts like a roto tiller across yer taste buds, ruins you for the night. Difficult bitter medicine. Perhaps a little viscous. This stuff is quite smooth on the up take then it kicks you in the jaw, wew. What else can be said, terribly on style. I don’t care for it but you’ll like it if yer into IPA.

Not very well balanced but nice enough. It certainly bites back but still undecided if that’s in a good way or not.
