Notes: A double IPA with luxuriant aromatics and succulent flavors. The combination of hops from both hemispheres and our ale yeast complement each other to create rich, juicy character. ABV: 8%, IBU: 30

Poured into a brandy snifter in the Pine Room. Lush is the perfect name for this delicious brew.

Another amazing Vermont IPA.

I hope I can get another sixtel.

Canned 08/04/22.

Hazy yellow, with 1.5 fingers of ivory head, that leaves a 3/8" ring, & 3/4" of patchy lacing.

Smell is grapefruit, pineapple, overripe peach, and a bit of biscuity malt.

Taste is mostly grapefruit , with some candied pineapple and orange rind. Light bitterness.

Feel is medium, lightly juicy, with moderate carbonation tingle

Overall, pretty good. Would like to try it fresher.

Lush from Frost Beer Works. Purchased at Franklin Beer, Franklin, PA, 21/09/22. $ 5.00 (Including tax)/16 oz can ($ 0.31/oz). In reefer at store, stored at 40 degrees at home. Reviewed 24/09/22. Note that I use DD/MM/YY protocol.
On bottom of can “DOWN, NOT OUT 04/28/22”. Served at 45.1 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King Snifter. Final temperature 49.6 degrees.
Appearance – 4.
First pour – Pale Straw (SRM 2), hazy.
Body – Straw (SRM 3), opaque. Under direct light, same with. When rear-lite, same.
Head – Large (Six cm, aggressive center pour), white smoke, high density with a few rocks, diminishing to a four to six mm jagged crown with an occasional peak > one cm and complete rocky cap.
Lacing – Fair – wide band of lacing, rapidly devolving into torn curtains.
Aroma – 3 – Slightly sweet cooked pineapple. No hops, no malt, no yeast, no ethanol.
Flavor – 3 – Slightly sweet with cooked pineapple. No malt, no yeast, no hops. No ethanol (8 % ABV as marked on label) aroma or taste. No gastric warming occurs. No dimethylsulfide or diacetyl.
Palate – 4 – Full, creamy, soft, carbonation.
Final impression and summation: 3.5 “Made with water, malt, hops and yeast”. No “add junks” so the pineapple is coming from the hops and yeast. Decent. Fruit fly approved.

From a 16oz can dated 4/28/22 into a pint glass. Can message: Down not out.

Pours an opaque yellowish orange with one finger of white head. Ok retention, great lacing.

Nice smell. Marijuana is the first thing I pick up. Some dirt and grass and light citrus also present
Sweet melon taste-cantaloupe with citrus in the background. Light Bitterness. Bitterness creeps up on warming.

Very soft mouthfeel. Light melon aftertaste. Low carbonation. Full bodied.

While I'm not a huge fan of sweet juicy beers, this one really works well. Winner.

Drinking from the can.
Has a very strong, dank smell.
Does not taste as strong as it smells, very juicy.
Goes down easy, has a little warmth but can hardly tell how strong it is. Very little alcohol taste considering the percentage.
I don’t see it as a 96 but I would definitely buy it again.

Good head production and OK retention.

Aroma is pleasant but a touch muted, with notes of melon, lemon, pineapple, mango, pine, and bright green herbs.

Lovely creamy and soft mouthfeel, carrying a bit of bite.

Tasting notes primarily match the nose, but significantly amplified, with a lovely semi-sweet juiciness formed by the interplay of the modern hops and the strong malt backbone.

Milkshake cloudy with a tight-bubbled head. Broad streaky lacing, nearly blanketing.

Very weedy and vegetal smell. Light pale malt background.

Semisweet start with a fruit punch presence. Some alcohol warmth. The hop bitterness is not as pronounced as the smell suggests. Creamy body with a good level of carbonation. The finish and aftertaste are well balanced for a New England styled DIPA.

L: drinking from the can. very stoic.
S: kind of interesting combo of grapefruit and some papaya. ok.
T: this is where it leaves me flat. kind of a mishmash and just not working for me. sweet stuff at the beginning and a bitter finish but feels disconnected.
F: fine, i guess
O: for me, not worth seeking out. your mileage may vary

16 oz can. Pours muddy golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and slightly crisp. Taste is of floral hops, tropical fruit and pale malt. Finish is long and dry. Nice brew.

pours thick, cloudy and murky with a moderate off-white head. Smell is pure grapefruit with the slightest hint of maltiness. Flavor is a malty grapefruit juice upfront with the hop bitterness coming in after, very well balanced. Mouthfeel is a spot-on chewyness. Goes down very easy, the ABV is hard to believe. Very nice.
