Nice change up from the usual juice bombs. A nice addition of resiny pine and earthy note. As for mouth feel this has the whole soft water feel down to a t.

Pours a cloudy darkened orange gold color with a fizzy 4 finger head that retains well. Aroma has nice orange notes along with a light amount of malt. Taste has a bit of a grapefruit rind taste right up there with the orange flavor accompanied by a lightly sweet malt base. The finish is kind of acerbic more than aromatic. The feel is very soft and bitterness is low to moderate. There's a bit of an alcohol burn too.

A pleasant beer. I feel the acerbic "rind" flavors cut into the pleasantness of the sweet orange flavor, so that's a little knock for my tastes but it is still a very good beer worthy of trying.

Pours a hazy gold in color, with a very nice and frothy 3 finger head. Retention is quite nice e, on break there are fluffy islands of foam and some good lacing.

Smell is tropical fruits and pineapple. I really pick up some passionfruit as well. It just smells very enticing.

Taste follows the nose with passionfruit and citrus coming on strong. There are also elements of pineapple and a touch of grassyness. Very enjoyable.

The feel is about a light middleweight. Carbonation is average, but it's the finish that gives this one the marks. Finish is dry, but not too much so and the citrus bitterness lingers.

A real nice beer. I don't think I have been let down by Frost yet. I would recommend this, and especially on a beautiful sunny day on a patio.

L - slight haze, thin white head

S - subdued by nice fruity aromas, mostly stone fruits, and maybe a little crystal malt

T - medium plus sweetness and bitterness, no really specific flavors stand out, but some grapefruit, and some pine on the finish

F - medium thickness, slight burn on the finish

O - no complaints but didn't wow me either

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color with some faint hues of amber and a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of citrus are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular—along with faint hints of pine.
T: The taste is mostly dominated with flavors of citrusy hops including oranges and bits of grapefruit and pine. There is a light amount of bitterness. No alcohol is detectable.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a litter lighter in body compared to other Imperial IPAs, but is packed with lots of aromas and flavors fro the hops.

Canned 11 days ago. I believe this is the first canning run of Plush

L — Slighty hazy golden straw body with a one-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and lacing
S — Sweet floral, honey, clementine, peach, ripe apple, candied citrus flesh, hint of cheese rindy yeast. Somewhat muddled
T — Pine, fresh cut grass, tangerine/orange flesh and rind, crisp bready malts, honey, bubblegum, honeydew melon, light floral, touch of booze. Surprisingly more bitter than Lush, but most of it drops off on the finish. The light sweetness from the malts helps cut through the bitterness as well
F — Less fluffy and smooth than Lush, which is a bit of a bummer since it’s my favorite aspect of that beer. This is slightly more ‘limp’ feeling in the mouth. It’s still quite pleasant, though. Medium mouthfeel, medium carb.
O — Another great IPA from Frost, although it is surprisingly different than Lush despite being the same base recipe(?). Doesn't quite have that same ripe juiciness
