Bottled just yesterday, 7/28/16. Appears to be a variation of Lush as part of the research series.

Pours a cloudy golden hue with a two finger head into my glass. A bit of lacing lines the rim.

Mango notes greet the nose with apricot and honeydew melon.

Deluge of citrus with notes of papaya, pineapple, mango, apricot and honeydew melon. Nice and bitter and not too hot.

Soft mouthfeel makes it deceptively drinkable.

Frost is hitting them out of the park at the moment. I hope that eventually, they will be able to can their beers because that's where they will really shine. Definitely pick this up before it disappears!

Look; a very pleasant golden haze to gaze at with some lacing . Smell; smell is NOT one of my strong points but I did get a slightly piney odor. Taste; for my likes and dislikes this was a strong "Like". Heavy, maybe a tad to heavy, on hops and a not to much malt. Piney for sure with some aftertaste on the piney and not in a bad way for me. Feel; kind of velvety bitterish. I would buy this again but would love to try their Lush for a comparison.

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.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a rugged orange murky color with a two finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some light lace.
The aroma had a nice blend of lemon to orange pulpy sweetness flowing over some mango/papaya sweetness. Subtle freshly cut grass, a light grapefruit clean sweetness and ended with a little bit of clean wheaty malt.
The flavor took all of the prior mentioned aroma to boot and moderately blended to guide and round out the sweet levels to follow into the aftertaste nice and clean.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a pretty good sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Nice softness along my tongue as the "normal" bitterness components of the style aren't exceedingly harsh.
Overall, very nicely done DIPA, well worth my time and money. Super glad these guys have legit prices for the quality of their beers.

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

This one pours a moderately hazy dark orange, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like floral and piney hops, with a grapefruit, pineapple, and orange peel.

This feels like a cross between a West Coast and a NE-style IPA, as there's a healthy bitterness- floral and slightly piney, along with a slight caramelly malt backbone. However, there's a great juicy fruit hop aroma- pineapple and grapefruit mainly, with some slight peel/rind bitterness.

This is medium bodied, fairly crisp, with a good level of carbonation.

Frost is basically 90% an IPA factory. However, they really do it well, and each of their IPAs do find a way to differentiate from the rest.

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.

16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with over an inch of frothy white head. Some lacing. The aroma is light citrus and tropical fruits as well as some pine. The taste is light grapefruit, orange peel, pine, and bread crusts. Lemon peel and grassy hop finish with more toasted malts. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Decent Imperial IPA.
