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.

Serving type: can
