Edgar IPA (7.5% ABV)
Named after Edgar Allan Poe, this double IPA is a crowd pleaser.

Color: Copper with a thin white head.

Aroma: spicy citrusy hops

Flavor: Sweet malty flavor, accompanied by a sweet citrusy hop flavor which is overpowering. Bitter in the middle with semi-dry finish.

Overall: A very drinkable and smooth IPA. One of my favorites and definitely among the best I've ever had. It makes me wanna brew my IPA...guess I better get that kitchen finished!

Had the rare opportunity to try Edgar at the campsite of Bullfrog Brewing during the “Belgium Comes To Cooperstown” event at Brewery Ommegang Saturday July 16th. Although this beer wasn’t offered at the tasting, a nice cold 1/6 Bbl keg was being generously shared by the crew of Bullfrog at their campsite. Firstly, as this beer is being poured, a wonderful 1" head develops and gradually diminishes to a ¼” head over the top of the brew. The nose is a completely off-the-hook, out of this world blend of what I was told were 12 different types of hops within, resulting in a explosion of an unbelievable, just harvested, fresh, pure unadulterated fine hops aroma that defies explanation. The diagnostic aroma of the Willamette Hops fills your soul! Soaring from the glass, there was no desensitization in the aromatics throughout the sampling. WOW!! The taste is a delicious, clean, crisp, just the right balance of bitter and very round and satisfying in the mouth. The hops being so prevalent on the nose takes no issues of overwhelming the taste, which is perfectly balanced and refreshing. This is an over-the-top AIPA, that must have been quite costly to produce considering the range and volume of the ingredients used to produce it. It is clear that this brewery has the creativity, ingenuity and ability to produce some of the most remarkable products on the market. Lets just hope this one will make it to the shelves. If not, I'm goin' Westbound to Williamsport PA to visit my pal Edgar!!! ..Thanks guys for the opportunity to meet you all and enjoy this as well as all of your fine products!

Served in a pint tumbler, this ale was honey golden to bronze, hazy with promise. There was minimal head by adequate lacing. The aroma of this beer held great hope, an outstanding hop assault, with presence of alcohol noted.

Flavor was dominated by hops (& lots of 'em). It didn't scream citrus, rather it was a blend of citrus, piney, floral, and all the best hoppy flavors I can think of. Just enough toasty malty substance to give support without standing out. Hard to pick out any particular flavors, just good. Mouthfeel was pure pleasure, medium body, tangy and bold, a serious boost to the senses, carbonation just right.

The only drawback to this ale's drinkability is the 7.5% abv, which limits volume that can be consumed. So it encourages savoring of every sip. Bravo to this beer.

With much thanks to a kind NY BA, I am able to enjoy a growler of this beauty. Served cold and poured into multiple pint glasses, this one was consumed on 06/19/2009.

The pour was wonderful. Nice honey colored amber with great clarity to it. A nice two inches of white, sticky foam rises up from the bottom of the glass to sit nicely on top for a good long while. Rich citrus hops welcome me in. Very bright with loads of pineapple notes right up front rich. Rich bready middle runs across the palate before a sharp bite of grapefruit and long drawn out dryness smacks the palate and lets you really just revel in how good an IPA can be. Smooth, mellow, even carbonation, this was a wondeful and quite drinkable, very fresh IPA.

Overall I am not familar with the regular offerings from Bullfrog, but hot damn we have a winner here for sure. This was a wonderful example of how light, complex, and fruity a good IPA can be. I would have no issue at all with trying this one again and again. Simply superb in every way. They should be proud of this offering.

Smell is full of hops, pine cone , grapefruit, and some caramel.

Starts with some malty sweetness, grapefruit, pine needles, tangerine, dried flowers, and some more grapefruit. So damn hoppy!

Impressive IPA, probably the best I have had in Pennsylvania.

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.

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.

D: Top notch, my favorite Bullfrog to date.

When I was at the brewpub I made it a point to try this one as my last brew before I left. I noticed a bunch of the workers wearin the Edgar shirts, So I figured it must be pretty good. The beer poured out as a really nice looking copper color. The head was strong looking and white, the beer had a killer lacing to it. The smell was very hoppy and was very inviting. The taste was piney and tingled the tongue on every sip. The mouthfeel was smooth and prickly. Overall very enjoyable IPA. Would love to have it again one day.

Fresh from the growler I picked up last weekend from the brewery.

A-Pale golden amber with a thin off white head that lasts and lasts. Nice lacing too.

S-Lots of juicy pine hops. Bring on the hop bomb!

T-Really really tasty. More malt presence than I detected from the nose makes for a really well balanced, albeit hoppy as hell, IPA. Even better than it smells.

M-Moderately oily, medium bodied, pleasantly creamy.

D-Yep, think I'll go have another one. Thanks!

A - pours a nice amber color with a 1/4 inch of foam that lasted a long time

S - Pine and citrus hops abound on this one, can't miss it

T - malt background with a big punch of hops, very very nice

M/D - I could drink this all day. And would if I was closer to the brewery. Citrus and pine hops just explode in the nose and mouth and give any hop head a nice treat.

On tap at Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, PA.

This one pours a slightly dark orange, with a creamy, foamy one inch head, and a large amount of lacing.

This one has a big herbal and piney aroma, with some grapefruit, pineapple, and orange.

This one surprised me in how tasty it was. This almost tastes like a citrusy milkshake, really thick fruit flavor, with a good herbal and piney component. There is really no malt character noticeable here.

Like mentioned before, this has a milkshake-esque consistency and mouthfeel. It's not quite as thick as an actual milkshake, but it's definitely got a nice creaminess to it.

A really nice and well constructed IPA here.

A-Dark orange color with a medium light tan head and good lacing.

S-Plenty of nice pungent citrus and piney hops. Followed by a sweet malt aroma.

T-An initial hop burst with a nice undertone of sweet maltiness. This one dances with flavour on the tongue. Alcohol in this is completely hidden....and this is dangerous!

M-Smooth with lots hop and good carbonation but with a strong malt backbone. This one goes down well.

D-Extreme! Regardless of the 8% ABV here. This is one smooth mo fo. I have sat many a nights at the Frog taking down plenty of these...and paying for it later!

This one is named in response to Poe's story, "The Hop Frog". Also, it seems different from the other IPAs listed for Bullfrog, so I feel justified in adding it as a new entry.
It is cloudy yellow in color, which is not a great look for an IPA. However, as I lean in to take a whiff, it becomes almost painfully apparent that this is a for-sure IPA. Some hairs burned up in my nostrils, but no worries, cauterization is good. Yow! The beer has a very creamy mouthfeel with a great tang on the tongue. The citrus/grapefruit flavor absolutely abounds - in the mouth, on the finish, in the aftertaste. Wonderful.

Another goody from Bullfrog on tap at 6 & Save in New Kensington, PA.

Poured into a tulip a clear golden-orange with a slight white ring & dusting, some lacing at the top but not down through the rest of the beer.

Floral aromas up-front, light citrus essence, pine. Typical IPA smells but very pure & clean, a pretty smell.

Taste is sugary at first without being "malty" or syrupy, very smooth in the middle with a strong hop bite at the back of the tongue in the swallow. The bite is herbal & piney but without being overly bitter.

Feel is very smooth as well, coating the mouth without being sticky. Leave a thin, sweet residue.

A good drinker for being a stronger, complex IPA. I could go for another one, sure.

750mL bottle courtesy of barleydine poured into a tulip.

Pours a hazy bright orange with a big creamy off-white head that shows excellent retention and leaves tons of delicate lacing along the sides.

The aroma sweet and citrusy with lots of pineapple and oranges, very pithy in nature with very little astringency in the nose. There is a healthy toasted malt presence as well balancing the sweetness of the citrus very well.

The taste is much the same with a big sweet tangerine and orange hop presence up front with a little bitterness, though it's still much sweeter than it is bitter. The light toasted caramel malts are present in the background and the citrus hops leave a slight astringency in the finish.

The mouthfeel is very nice as well, sticky with citrus juice and fairly full bodied, somewhere between IPA and DIPA. Good carbonation and body overall.

Well, I haven't been blown away by all of the Bullfrog sours I've had. They've been good, but this IPA is excellent. If you're a fan of juicy sweet IPAs that aren't overally bitter, this one is for you. Super drinkable and well balanced...I'm a big fan.

Thanks to Hojaminbag for this brew.

Poured into a Stone pint glass a cloudy dark golden yellow color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice three-finger foamy white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is pretty hoppy, with a slight malt note, lots of citrus and pine notes. The taste is nice and hoppy, slightly sweet, with some maltiness thrown in, a really nice citrus/pine note. Medium Body, with a very nice bitter/dry finish. This is my first Bullfrog brew and it's pretty tasty, will seek out others for sure.

picked up a growler at the brewpub for PACK v. Dook

a: poured into a piraat chalice, producing only a light coating of carbonation, the beer a lightly hazed medium-golden in color

s: pungent aromas of juicy tropical hops, passionfruit pulp and red grapefruit juice, orange, pineapple, light caramel malts add a dose of sugar and provide a subtle base to let the hops do their thing, fresh - just a great aroma

m: carbonation low, body ranging to the lighter side of medium

t: fantastic tropical fruit juice hops are the centerpiece here - passionfruit, red grapefruit, vibrant green hop cones, pale malts with a light caramel flavor, big assertive bitterness of young pine provides a knockout finish

d: drinkability isn't a problem - it's strong, but the hops presence is top notch and the bitter finish keeps things rolling

Had this beer on tap at the brewery on a recent trip back to PA. Poured from the tap to a pint glass and the review is from notes taken on 7/16/2010.

Appearance: Pour is an orange/coppery color and it starts with a 1/2 finger white head that fades to a bubbly, creamy and uneven skim; body is very cloudy and it's a little difficult to get a good reading on the carbonation, but it looks to be moderate; spots of lacing are left holding randomly to the sides of the glass.

Smell: Smell is very juicy and citric (lots of orange peel and straight up orange) hoppy bitterness; a mildy sweet malty presence that carries a touch of honey to it; the nose is big and robust, and absolutely delectable!

Taste: Very solid! Lots of the citric and juicy hops right up front, followed by a bit of a toasty graininess that leads into a bit of that honey sweet maltiness; the aftertaste returns to the rind-like bitter ness of the citric fruits; the flavors in this beer are huge and wonderful!

Mouthfeel: Quite smooth and creamy with a thicker body and soft carbonation; a semi-dry stickiness is left all over the palate; the gums are left a little tingly and the belly is left warm from the higher ABV.

Drinkability: Amazing scent and flavors -- this big IPA has solid balance and a thick and sticky mouthfeel, what's not to like? ABV would catch up to anyone after a while and it does lower it a bit, but this beer is still amazing and should be drank in the highest quantities available.

Thanks to Woody Chandler for sharing the growler.
What a great beer. This beer is right on the fence between IPA and DIPA. At 8% ABV it is big for an IPA but it drinks so easily you would never know the alcohol is there making it hard to believe it's a DIPA. It has very solid characteristics but with out being extreme.

Appearance: Dark orange color with a nice three finger beige head and some sticky lacing.

Smell: Initially bold (to a degree) hops but then it settles into a solid but easy to accept pine citrus and sweet malt balanced aroma.

Taste: Very easy! This is big for an IPA but not too extreme in my opinion. It has a very nice bold crisp grapefruit hop presence that does not shy away from your palate and it is immediately followed by a lip smacking caramel sweet malt character. The sweet and bitter attributes teeter-totter but leave you with a delightfully sweet dry aftertaste that lingers. The ABV is completely hidden.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly smooth. It has plenty of hop prickles and carbonation but also has a strong malt backbone giving it a solid slick center. Added together it is very creamy and easy to drink.

Drinkability: Certainly a standout feature of this beer is its approachability. I would categorize it as gentle (small) DIPA that is quite dangerously easy to drink. Watch out that 8%ABV is still there.

Hope this is helpful.

I enjoyed this one on tap at Cooper’s Seafood House in Scranton. It’s a murky, hazy brownish-amber liquid with a beautiful cream-colored head. It produces a remarkably pretty lace. The aroma is centered on fruit: citrus (lots of grapefruit) from the hops and meaty fruit esters. It’s like smelling a fruit-bowl, only with a some malt underneath. The taste is quite sweet, with a solidly bitter balance. The aroma is of moderate intensity, but he taste is deliciously powerful. Lots of flavors come out once the beer is on the tongue… caramel, pine, plum, and raisins. Solidly bitter. Moderate to low carbonation, and a lingering, bitter, citric finish. Terrific balance. This one was fantastic.

A - Pours a nice, clear, vibrant orange color with tight, small carbonation flowing up at a nice steady pace, and a thin white ring around the top.

S - Smells like a HUGE basket of overripe tropical fruit. The aroma is dripping with oranges, papaya, grapefruit, and pineapple - just amazing in the nose. Smell is very up front, zesty, pungent, juicy, and aromatic. There's also a touch of pine mixed in, but not very much.

T - The tongue is met immediately with a juicy, fruity goodness and a touch of yeasty, bready malt underneath. After the sweetness rolls around the tongue some bitter grapefruit sets in to finish things off and leaves the mouth coated with a metallic/citrus/peppery coating. Grapefruit bitterness is next to last before some heavy orange migrates into the picture to linger in the mouth for a nice finish. There's a little bit of lemons mixed in with all the frutiness as well.

M - Heavy medium body, a little yeasty and frothy for an IPA, and the alcohol presence leaves a slight bit of effervescence in the back of the throat.

D - Dangerously HIGH. I would have given this a (5) but with 8%, you can't really have too many of these, but they go down oh so easily!

Always loved this beer, just an excellent IPA from another great PA brewer. I've had it on tap, in the growler a few days after it was filled, and in the bottle. By far, the fresh tap version is best, growler second, and the bottle totally loses any pungency and frutiness from the hops. It's an awesome IPA but I wouldn't recommend the bottled version IF you're trying it for the first time. If I could have a steady supply of this beer, there would always be an Edgar on tap here at home. Love this beer!

On Tap at House of 1000 Beers

A - Pours a slightly hazed gold color, about a finger of sudsy head, little lacing going on.
S - Really great aroma. Fresh lime juice, orange zest, fresh cut grass, and a nice hop dankness at the end.
T - Some lime rind, a little rye, nice light crystal malt, pungent grassy flavor.

Pours as a more medium hue copperish muddish look. A small head that dies down fairly quick. A nice spice to the nose that some people might think is a litte too much for an American IPA. It's drinkablity is pretty good, but not an overpowering "west-coast" IPA (which I do enjoy). It's a nice balance of tounge bitterness, flavor (could not make out the type of spice though until I read about it), and overall good drinkability.

Served in a standard pint glass; nice, crisp pale copper color, light head and lacing.

Smell is light malt sweetness, hint of biscuit and good hoppy bitterness notes of pine and lemon, with a hint of grassiness.

Taste is so well balanced, a big punch of lemony and piney bitterness, followed by a nice lightly biscuity malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel is just right, good balance of flavors on the tongue and good carbonation.

Overall, very well done, a nice and tasty ipa.

This is one IPA that doesn't come in a bomber bottle, but a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. On this bottle is a psychedelic label of a fat and slouching bullfrog with a pilsener glass half full of beer and giving the "Hey Yo" or "Back at You" sign with his fingers. Below the frog is the name of the brewery who brewed and bottled this beer. I'll give you a hint, it's not Bullfrog. To the left of the frog is the web address and their saying of "You'll love this frog in your throat!" To the right is the Government warning and that's pretty much it for the label. It would help to have some kind of date on the bottle, but one doesn't exist.

Appearance: Usually an IPA doesn't deserve any kind of special glass, so I poured it into my Sly Fox Imperial pint glass. I've seen some murky IPAs before, but I think this one takes the cake. It was so murky that my eyes couldn't even catch a glimpse of my fingers on the other side of the glass. Sometimes it felt like I was starring at a glass full of apple cider than a glass of beer. As for the color of the beer, it was tangerine orange along the sides and a dark amber orange in the center of the beer. On occasion, I caught a brief glimpse of some yellow toward the bottom of the glass. The head of foam was impressive, but not quite as nice as the color of the beer. The head of foam was as fluffy as a ball of fur, over 1 inch in height, and white as a ball of cotton. This head of foam had standard retention that left behind a tiny white film and numerous small spots and streaks of lace around the glass. There's really not much you could ask for from an IPA appearance.

Smell: This IPA didn't favor any variety of hops. The aroma was mostly all about the fresh scent of pine. If you swirl it around, the scent of pine kicks into high gear and makes this beer smell like a pine forest in Winter. Waiting patiently behind all the pine was the scent of bitter citrus hops, sweet grapefruit, a hint of orange peel, a splash of apricot, and then it finishes up with a subtle whiff of toasted malts. The aroma wasn't lacking anything and it was certainly wasn't missing any pine. If you want your hardwood floors to smell like pine, then drop and ounce or two of this beer onto your floor.

Taste: The aroma absolutely loved the pine, but the taste took that into consideration and added a little more citrus flavors to the bunch. This IPA contained more of a well balanced hoppyness than a hoppyness that gets blown way out of proportion even for a regular IPA. The taste was also packing in a lot of citrus flavors and of course, pine. It kicks off with the bitter grapefruit and then the beer gets down to business. This is when the taste turns its attention to the bitter citrus hops. The hops do a minor build up and then it rolls gently into some lemon and orange peel. When the citrus fruits and hops leave the tongue, in rushes the pine. It was a mild pine taste compared to the rich scent of pine coming off this beer. I noticed a a touch of malts trying to peak its head in, but the pine rushed over and violently pushed the malts out of the taste.

Mouthfeel: This was an easy drinking not overly hopped medium bodied IPA. I thought it had the correct amount of carbonation and it also featured a mild citrus and hoppy aftertaste. The aftertaste had its fair share of pine, bitter citrus hops, bitter grapefruit, a splash of lemon, and a subtle taste of malts. The malts were able to break through the pine barrier, but in a weakened state. The taste of pine will linger on for quite some time. It will not go quietly and it will take a large glass of water to cleanse your palate.

Drinkability: The label was correct! I did love having this frog in my throat. It was a frog covered in pine needles, but I still enjoyed having the frog stay in my throat nonetheless. It was a well balanced hoppy IPA that sometimes went a little overboard with the pine. If you ever want to try a not overly hopped up IPA that can be used as a substitute to make your floors smell like pine, then open your wallet wide and try this beer. It's one of those beers that doesn't come cheap if you can find it and you basically have to know somebody who knows somebody that lives in the vicinity of the Bullfrog Brewery.
