A – Pours a hazy orange with a nice 2 finger off white head.

S – Lots of pine and some citrus notes.

T – Very smooth IPA, not overly bitter. Malt and hops play nicely together.

M – Medium bodied with really nice carbonation which added a little CO2 bite.

O – Really nice IPA that I found very drinkable, will get a growler of this again next time I am up that way!

Arrives a hazy, deep orange with a 1" head of orange-tinted foam that drops to a nice coating and a ring. Some carbonation evident. Some lacing on the glass.

Smells of strong lemony/grapefruity hops, maybe pine needles, and sweet caramel malts. The arome is very enticing.

At first you taste rich sweetness, which quickly gets blasted away by a powerful bitterness. Then you get ripe grapefruit and fresh pine. Delish. This is a huge IPA, with a good deal of caramel-y malt sweetness for balance. This is definitely a keeper. The aftertaste is a very long grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is sweet/bitter. Hop resins coat the tongue, only to be washed away by a pretty good carbonation bite. Lips stick together from sweetness. A nice long warm, yummy finish.

This is one of the best IPA's I've ever had, although it really could be a small DIPA. Chock full of hops, with a huge malt presence, and the alcohol to back it up. A winner.

Thanks to FooFaa for lugging this 750ml with him from PA to GTOM! Always a great day meeting another BA in person!

Pours a hazy copper with a giant, three finger head. I smell hints of citrus and pine, but to be perfectly honest, I'm not getting a whole lot here. Time to drink the damn thing...

Lemons upfront. Puckering lemons, grapefruit, orange and a bit of band-aid. I'm also heeding the below reviews and letting this warm up. We lose the band-aid taste and start to pick up some floral hops as well as kiwi perhaps?

This is most definitely an east coast IPA. I'm not getting bruised with hops, but moreso getting caressed with balance. The mouthfeel is terrific, for an IPA (not sure about this being a DIPA)... fairly creamy and goes down dry. No problems finishing this on another scorcher in Chicago.

An above-average hopped IPA, like a 1.5 IPA not a double. The best beer in their lineup. Here the aggressive carbonation of their entire lineup was suitable. Good bitterness,citrus, hop resin, they got it all in there, pine hop aroma. Nice lace.A decent IPA.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a pint glass.

A: Standard pour reveals a massive, 4 finger head that collapses quickly to a point and just stops. Good retention. Head is white, creamy, and a bit coarse on the sides of the glass. Beer is a cloudy reddish-orange. Lacing is patchy but ample.

S: Nose is light hoppiness, strong cane sugar, clementine, and a creaminess that reminds me of warm sweet condensed milk.

T: Boozy opening that really surprises me. Afterwards, cane sugar, citrus, deep brown sugar and caramel middle. Slightly hoppy finish with a deep citrus fruitiness. Also a bit smokey and charred on the finish.

M: Medium bodied and light carbonated but it really jumps on the tongue. Mouth is coarse, and very vibrant. Finish is present, but fades quickly and is not overwhelming.

D: A rather standard example of a DIPA. The creaminess is a welcome surprise here and sets Edgar apart from the others. A unique brew that is worth seeking out.

Poured into a Pint glass today.

A: A very rich copper with a lacy off white head. NO cloudiness at all. Head could be a little frothier, but still very good.

S: Floral, earthy, spicy, and a touch of citrus. Not much sweetness in the smell.

T: Extremely spicy, but not just alcohol. Maybe a bit of corriander or the slightest hint of all spice. Plenty of earthy or floral notes in this as well. There is a very good sweetness present as well.

M: Slightly creamy and the bitterness is very smooth.

D: A bomber would be no problem two would be too much.

On tap at the brewpub on 12/27/08.

Pours a clear gold with a 1/2 finger or so of brite-white head. Thin creamy retention yields some good looking spotty lace. The aroma is earthy and floral with a touch of pine and spice to it and a thick smelling mix of citrus and caramel behind it.

The taste is similar with a more earthy and peppery hop profile that posesses a bit of a resinous edge to it and is well balanced by a tangy backbone of citrus, caramel, and bread. Finishes with a nice dry lingering bitterness that hangs in the mouth for a bit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a firm carbonation that accentuates the hop profile and keeps things moving across the palette.

A classic IPA from the PA brewpub scene. Well balanced, full flavored, and incredibly quaffable for 8% ABV, a visit to the Bullfrog should always start with a glass of this.
