Bottled 5/26/17
Moderate pour yields a 3/4 inch white head over a hazy, medium straw colored body with some lacing. Nose of citrus and pine. Tastes of the same with a bitter, dry finish. Very nice feel and overall another good one from Hinesburg, VT. As it warms, a bit of tropical fruit and candied fruit appear on the nose and a bit of tropical fruit on the palate as well. Cheers!

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a soft hazy burnt orange color with a nice sustaining white foamy rocky head that dissipated in about a minute. Messy foamy lacing runs all over the place. The aroma picks out sharp bitter orange rind with subtle juicy citrusy pulpy contours over some light resin. The flavor takes the aroma profile and adds in a light little bit of spicy rye. Rye ends up bleeding into the finish, but not so much the aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel about it. Rye doesn’t distract to overly lead into too much spicy harshness. Its character is there, but pretty light. Overall, really nice variation on Junior iPA, with the rye being as subtle as it is. This one would make a nice offering with its respected food.

My review is of a two month old bottle that was kept cold.
Pours a lightly hazy and bright medium straw yellow.
Aromas are touch of tangy malt, very light hops and some white wine.
Flavors are mainly light rye tang, champagne touch of hops.
Mouthfeel was good.
This beer was very, very light with very light aromas and flavors.

Bottle dated 1/27/2017 poured into a willy glass. A super hazy, light dirty orange color, with a tall off-white head that sticks around and coats the glass. Aromas of tropical and citrus fruits with a little resin mixed in. Taste is awesome...nice mellow rye spice melding with the hops. Great mouthfeel for a low ABV beer. Overall, one of my favorites from Frost so far...on par with Lush.

Pours a cloudy reddish/golden hue with a thick head into my glass.

Thick and juicy with dominant mango note set against malted rye.

Succulent with grapefruit, mango and spicy rye.

Clean, fresh finish. Bottled 8/25/16.

This beer has everything that I seek with malted rye and juicy hops. Great variation of Junior IPA!
