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.
M - Finishes with some intense bight, but still is palatable by all means.
O - This my first beer from Bullfrog, and a great introduction. I love the awesome lime smell and taste in this. I hope I start to see this in bottles out this way.

On-tap at the outstanding "West Reading Tavern", served in a Pint glass

A - clean with a very light hue - appeared like a highly-filtered Pilsner in the glass - three finger head that retained through the final quaff.

S - this is the highlight of this beer - I likely appeared to be huffing this as the super-clean pine and citrus notes burst from the glass before every sip

T - back-of-the-mouth bitterness. This leaves no doubt it's an IPA with a grapefruit-forwardness that slaps the tastebuds from start to finish

M - my least favorite aspect of this beer; the mouthfeel is very thin. It contradicts the intense hop flavor as it pulls away from the balance of what would otherwise be an exceptional beer.

O - the atmosphere for drinking this craft offering was perfect - sipping a cool brew at the West Reading Tavern gives way to a definite opportunity to fully "experience" each beer. That said, I wanted more body on this one - I appreciate what's happening with the hops, but somehow felt like I was drinking a standard american light lager that had been sent for a "hop" makeover.

On tap at whole foods. Poured into tulip glass.

A-a golden amber colored body. Fingers width head that leaves minimal lacing around the glass.
S-citrus nose. Very nice aroma of melon, grapefruit and cantaloup.
T-like the aroma the taste is full of those citrus notes. Nicely balanced beer with a slightly sweet malty backbone.
M-medium mouthfeel. Sweet finish. Good carbonation.
O-A very enjoyable ipa. If you see it on tap get a glass of it, you wont be disappointed.
