look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The appearance was a glossy to semi-burnt orange color with a thin white foamy finger-ed head. The smell had a big burst of sweet and bitter orange pulp and rind running into big grapefruit rind and pulp portions. Fully bittersweet. The taste took the previously mentioned flavors and combined absolutely awesome. Subtle dry to semi-wet bittersweet orange aftertaste runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel about it. Carbonation runs appropriate for an AIPA. And enough bitterness hits my tongue nicely. Overall, Frost took "Another IPA" ’s recipe and re-worked it to this. Yup, I dig it and would have again.

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2-finger bubbly white head. The head settles into a nice ring around the glass, leaving tons of lacing along the way.

The aroma brings a pretty hefty amount of citrus, with grapefruit and orange leading the way. There's also a bitter pine note on the back end.

The taste follows the nose: Tons of orange with a touch of grapefruit, followed by a big, piney, resinous bite at the finish.

The feel is medium bodied with pretty good carbonation. Soft and creamy, with some lingering bitterness.

Overall, a very impressive IPA. This is my first beer from Frost and I'm definitely impressed. While this is fairly typical of the "NE IPA" it still manages to stand on its own with a ton of pine notes throughout.

Bomber into a snifter. Slightly hazy light orange. Dank, orange, and some pine in nose. Flavor is more citrus. Really nice fluffy mouthfeel. Overall pretty good, score is just about right around 4.25-4.3 imo.

Another fantastic example of a NE IPA. Pale and hazy, with a nose of pine and citrus fruits. This has a bit more pine and bitterness than most HF IPAs. Crisp, dry, and clean on the finish with lingering citrus notes, I'm very impressed with my first offering from Frost Beer Works.

On tap at Frost. Very hazy orange. Smell has a big citrus aroma. Some pale malt. Taste also has a huge citrus flavor. Sweet and orangey. Some tropical fruits. Low bitterness. A little bit of malt sweetness. Medium body. Impressive.

Bottled on 3/16/16. Very fresh.

Cloudy blonde-orange hue with a huge head into my glass. Looks like grapefruit juice to me.

Smells like it too. Relaxed with a good malt backbone as well. I want to say mango on the nose as well.

Clean and crisp with a hell of a ctirus hop bite. It snakes down the throat, leaving a slight burn. Doughy from the malt.

Just a slight burn at the back of the throat. Very tasty.

Amazing flavor. They just keep getting better with each passing beer. Would love it if they canned.
