look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

Thanks to Darrell for sharing a bunch of growlers from Bullfrog Brewery, a really nice selection for a non distributing brewery!

A: Nice bright orange to straw color with a ring of bubbly white head, not a lot of lacing.

S: Beautiful open grassy and citrus hops, lemon grass, biscuit breadiness, and some nice subtle sugars as well.

T/M: Nice taste following the smell but not with as much burst as I hoped. A palate crushing bitter back is great, with lots of citrus bitters and grass. Very subtle grain front and semi sweet middle without too much complexity, some tropical flavors add in nicely.

O Good, a very encouraging introduction to this brewery.

Growler shared by durwoodx. Thanks Darrell!

The beer is clear and bright orange with a small head and minimal lacing. The aroma is primarily of candied citrus fruits. The flavor brings more of the same. The beer is very hop forward, with little malt presence. The feel is a bit sweet and sticky and coats the palate with a lasting bitterness. Overall, another solid beer from Bullfrog.

Served on tap into a pint glass.

A- pours orange with no head at all. Not sure if that's because it sat around for awhile before it was brought to me (which is what I'd assume) or what, but not impressed to start

S- super duper aroma of citrus hops! Not sure if this uses citra or if I'm getting tomahawk out of this, but dear god is it powerful

T- slight bitterness and mostly citrus...a decent bit of orange in this one

M- a little syrupy, but not overly so

D- it's not bad. Doesn't really do anything to put itself head and shoulders above the pack, though. Give me a pour with a decent head though, and maybe the rating could get bumped a little bit

Edgar IPA has a clear, copper-colored body and a small off-white head. A head with OK retention leaves a few scraps of lacing.

The aroma has a lot of fruity hops with just a bit of malt behind it.

Edgar IPA has a pretty interesting hop profile. Pretty fruit, with some grapefruit zest, apricot, some orange and other citrus flavors. Underneath that is a hint of grass and some pine. A moderate amount of bitterness accompanies these flavors, especially in the finish. The malt base is in the background, and certainly doesn't challenge the hops for control of the flavor, but it does supply some light caramel sweetness and a little bit of biscuit.

Somewhat light bodied, on the high side of the carbonation scale.

Edgar IPA is a solid IPA that is definitely worth a try if you stop at the Bullfrog.

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

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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!

From summer 2009 notes.

This is sublime on tap. The bottled version is a bit clunkier and malt-forward. The bottled version is heavy in the caramel malt, which is actually really tasty but makes it more cumbersome than I would like for the style. The tap version glimmers wih bright, piney hops to play more with the caramel base, which was exceptional. Bottled version had improved tremendously since the release, as there was initially a pretty nasty ethanol, chemical heat that persisted throughout.

I guess my notes were a combination of a few different entries. This was an example of a bottled IPA actually improving sitting in the bottle for a few weeks, as this gassy chemical quality relly took over the ultra-fresh bottles.

Review from notes taken on 5/28/10 at the brewpub.

Served in a pint glass Edgar appears a very cloudy orange color with a bit of hop break floating around in the glass. The creamy head fades fast to just a lace atop the brew. Aroma is slightly muted from what I was expecting but what is evident is citrus notes minorly reminescent of grapefruits with a floral aspect about it as well. Taste is pleasantly hoppy with a good backing of sweet malty goodness to counter the bitter hops tasting minorly citrusy and somewhat herbal. Also picking up on some grassiness before the bitter, slightly resine-like finish that is quite warming from the alcohol that just starts to show itself in the back. Medium feel with a light level of carbonation. Overall quite drinkable and very good.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a cloudy, dark amber / honey, nice one-finger white head, sticky lacing.
Smell - Lots of resin.
Taste - Much like the nose, lots of resin though it has a slight hint of caramel malts. Lots of bitterness throughout, yet not too much hop flavor.
Mouthfeel - Smooth, slightly sticky feel. Moderate carbonation, medium-bodied.
Drinkability - Fair amount of bitterness throughout without a great deal of hop flavor limits the drinkability of this one. Still enjoyable.

Growler obtained via Growling at the Moon from mday. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" beige head over the clear orangey amber brew. Head is quickly down to an uneven film, with slow-falling lace. Aroma is skanky pine, biting hops in its raw state.

Taste is sweet for a moment to start, a peek of citrus, then back to the hops, with pine and earthiness strong and dominant. Some lingering numbness after the swallow. Hops burps are quick and biting. Mouthfeel is rough and tumble but grows on me, and drinkability is good, drawing me back, daring me to think I can tame this one down in my next glass.

A - The body was a golden orange color with a creamy white head...the head showed some retention becoming a wispy cap...nice lacing

S - A very interesting nose...a mixture of citrus, pine, floral, and herbal hops all at once...you can pick up on the pine notes with hints of grapefruit, orange, and lemon zest...a hint of spiciness...I like it

T - The hops are pretty evident in the flavor...they have a strong bitterness to finish the beer but they are sweet up front...I think the caramel malts help add to that sweetness...the finish is bitter but nothing too big

M - Medium bodied...nice lingering bitterness and rather crisp

D - I didn't realize this was 8% so the alcohol is hidden...a great nose with good hop flavors on the palate...a nice IPA

On tap at the Bullfrog Brewery...

A - Orange/yellow colour that was slightly cloudy.

N - A lot of grapefruit and some floral hops. Definitely had a big IPA nose to it.

T - Citriusy hops and some pine. Bitter with a nice, smooth finish.

M - Medium body with a bit of chew.

D - A very good IPA. This beer should be widely distributed. It is an excellent example of the style.

A: Pours a copper color with a nice white head.

S: Fairly hoppy leaning more toward floral and spice, but nothing too overwhelming.

T: A nice bitterness, but not as much as I would expect from an (D)IPA with this much alcohol. The hops that are present are quite nice, but nothing too overwhelming.

M: Medium-bodied with a hefty dose of carbonation.

D: Very, very drinkable considering the high abv and substantial hop presence.

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.

I'm very thankful to johnmichaelsen for bringing this for me. However, the $16 dollar price tag he paid for it at a bar also makes me thankful for no longer living in PA! Poured into my large gulden draak tulip, Edgar is a chill hazed orange with a large off-white head leaving thick foamy lace, big chunks, very nice.

Smell is somewhat but not overly hoppy, an unusual blend of aromas, some nice lemon notes compliment the pine, but there's a strong yeastiness that seems out of place and is distracting.

Taste is ok, not too hoppy though, kind of yeasty bread dough, more bitterness then hop flavor. While the alcohol is fairly well hidden, the general flavor profile is frankly more akin to a pale ale to me...maybe I'm just getting jaded with all the Portland IPAs, but this one falls short.

Mouthfeel is pretty dried out by the alcohol, the only real indication of it, it's also pretty thick. Did I mention it's yeasty?

Drinkability is OK. Inoffensive but boring. Factor in the price and availability, and I can't see myself ever having this again by choice.

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.

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.

Poured from a 750 cork and cage to a Portsmouth tulip. Bottle picked up at release of Hoblonium P-38.

A: Copper amber color. Big head and a nice lacing.

S: Hoppy (obviously) though I thought it was piney and spicey.

T: Once again hoppy and bitter. The bitter remained in my mouth afterward but not unpleasant. Not balanced but I don't believe it was meant to be, it is a DIPA.

M: Higher carbonation and medium bodied. It was very active in my mouth.

D: Very hoppy and bitter but certainly not a bad thing. I still couldn't drink an entire 750 on my own and was shared. I would drink again and this was not my first bottle.

A note of bias is that I did drink this a few weeks ago vs. Cigar City Humidor (Cedar) and Lawson's Chinooker'd and I thought the Lawson's was money. This review was from tonight and not against any other IPA's though.

Thanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this growler at the Lancaster County Brewers October meeting. Poured chilled into my tasting glass.

A - A deep amber w/ light tan cap, lace clings well and the bead is fine with good clarity presented

S - A floral herbal nose w/ mild caramel influence and subtle citrus w/ tinges of alcohol in the nose.

M - A creamy feel w/ mild sweet middle. the citrus is noted throughout w/ mild astringent element and subtle alcohol texture

T - The taste has a subtle toast note but more sweet than most w/ mild grapefruit tinge and caramel malt edge w/ a hint of orange rind

D - A great east coast DIPA, very full flavored and smooth w/ good strength. I prefer a more dry texture, but this has all the qualities of a a great hoppy beer -plenty of flavor

A-4 S-4.5 M-4 T-4 D -4
re review on 5/9 thanks again to tb69 for sharing a growler of this w/ me. Poured chilled into a tulip pint.

A - the color is similar to bourbon with a light golden amber hue and green tea-like shade. The cap is white and comprised of densely packed tight bead. Lace is minimal and clarity is lightly hazed.

S - Strong sweet grapefruity hop odors, mild pine acccent and light malt odors that are sweet with a mellow alcohol presence in the background

M - A moderatetly bitter and astringent feel w/ light toasted grain quality and acidity is pronounced with bitterness level above moderate and it is carried into a finish that is dry w/ mild alcohol warmth

T -The flavor is full of hops and has an orangey taste w/ mild pepper and grapefruit w/ slight sweet flavor and balance of bitter and malty with only a subtle alcohol flavor and resinous citrus hop juiciness w/ mild bite

D -A sweeter American IPA with lots of citrus and strong alcohol toward the end of the pint which detracts slightly but the hops are there and qualifies well for the Imperial IPA style w/ high bitterness. I would probably only go for 1 1/2 pints, so share the growler. I find there are elements of the bottle I prefer in flavor while the dry feel in growler/draft is preferred

Got this one for beating SkinnyElvis in a heads up game of fantasy football.

A: Pours a nice golden hue, with a nice tall foamy white head. Good retention and a light smattering of lace.

S: Hop forward for sure. Lots of citrus with strong floral notes and caramel malt.

T: Not as hopped as the nose suggests, but still an ample amount of hops are noted. The malt is there for sure, mostly caramel with hints of cracker as well. The hops are very citric with strong notes of bitter grapefruit, and mild notes of orange and pineapple/piney sweetness. The backend is very floral, a nice mix of hops creates a wonderful brew.

M: Medium in body, smooth, crisp carbonation.

D: Polished this one off by myself without problem. The sours these guys make are what everyone goes after, but this really is a solid IPA that is one you should seek out via trade.

Thanks Sam, glad my fantasty team was superior to yours, at least for that one week :)

Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head.
Aromas of apricots, grass, toffee, and smarties candy.
This is a very different tasting IPA than most. It is very resiny with unripe peaches and coconut. The flavor is good except for a rubbing alcohol aftertaste. This IPA is very hot and would pass for 12%, not the stated 8%. Overall this is not my favorite east coast style IPA and I don't think I will buy this one again.

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.
