Pours a bright pale color with amber shades. Exotic hops greet the nose with a citrus bouquet of mango and passionfruit. Whoa, bitterness overload upfront that fades to an acidic, citrusy end. Coats the throat and leaves a strong burning sensation in the head. Get it while you can!!!!

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.
Pours a lightly hazy light blonde with two fingers of bubbly head.
Light aromas of hoppy lemon and bready cracker.
Flavors are in line with aromas, with mellow lemon and hops.
Body was fine with good mouthfeel.
Overall, nice lighter beer for an ABV of 8%.

This Lush variant is with all Southern Hemisphere hops hence the name. The nose is very good with strong mango overtones. There is a astringency from the dry-hopping process which is a little much at first,but improves with each sip. All in all a good beer, but not different enough from Lush to excite me. I still prefer the original.

Bottled on 05/24/2017, this was poured into a tulip, the appearance was a pale light orange color with a swiftly dissipating finger's worth of white foamy head that left a little bit of concave lace.
The aroma had some sharp sweet mango to papaya fruitiness. Subtle sweet grassy hoppy effects with a little bit of white pepper. Some danky dried onions.
The flavor crisply moved from the sweet mango and papaya to the sweetness of the onions pretty nice. Aftertaste fulfilled the gracefulness of the whole blend.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, maybe a touch under with an acceptable dryness about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, pretty good DIPA I could come back to.

RIP Chris. Another very good DIPA from Frost. Not much difference that I can tell between this and Lush and Plush. They're all somewhat inconsistent and similar in appearance, smell, taste and mouth. Very enjoyable.

A Double IPA receiving exclusively Southern Hemisphere dry hops.
A combination of Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa gives this cousin of Lush a distinctive, funky accent.

Moderate pour yields a 7/8 inch :) white head over a slightly hazy, golden body with some nice lacing. Fantastic nose of tropical fruit, citrus (more sweet than sour) and slight dank hops. Taste mirrors nose with a very nice, easy, bitter finish that invites you for another sip. Nice feel and overall another winner from Hinesburg, VT. Cheers!
