Dang good, and you can get it at the Irving gas stations in the Stowe area. Hoppy yet understatedly smooth and consistent, no bitterness and not too sweet like some of the other NE 2ipas. Poors a beautiful orange hue. Floral yet subtle aroma. "Research Series" brew, hope it goes full time. As good or better than Lush.

Bottled on 07/07/2017.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a foiled light brown close to rusty orange color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a nice pace. Mild film of lace ran around the glass.
The aroma had a finer blend than the "Hush" - taking some of those features - the pineapple and mango but this one seemed to push a little bit of a "bright" danky sweet onion glossing the edges of those fruits and then the grains - yes, they were noticeable, but way further smoothed out.
The flavor was even balanced better than "Hush" as there's the sweet to the dank and underscored by the bitter but even leveling out the graininess in a slight superior sort of way, telling me that this one has some good things to say to the "DIPA" fan. Aftertaste was somewhat "danky" but also pulling the respected sweetness from those fruits.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a cherishing sipping quality about it. ABV is somewhat noticeable but distracting. Carbonation felt good. Slight stickiness, but not cloying. Some mango to dankiness in the finish.
Overall, not sure if "Hush" was possibly the second run of this and that's why this was the better one. Yes, I know a DIPA is a different style than an AIPA. I know I shouldn't compare two different styles of each other, but I'm left scratching my beard between the two beers, just saying.

From the 650 ml. bottle dated 07/07/17. Sampled on July 26, 2017.

The pour is orange-amber with a modest, lingering cream colored head and a slight haze to it.

The aroma emits characters of pineapple, guava, and maybe passion fruit with a vague herbal to offset the fruitiness. The malt sensations are like toasted sour dough but that is secondary.

Medium to full and creamy body.

The taste has the same tropical fruitiness as the nose suggests it would but the herbal or mossy character tickles the senses. It ends with a moderate bitter finish.

Drank from a 1 pint, 6 fl oz bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Waterbury, VT
Bottled on: 07/31/2017
Served in a tulip

Hazy, burnished yellow-amber appearance. The body was topped by a small cap of off-white froth that quickly dropped to a bubbly ringlet. Some streaky lacing trickled down the glass.

The aroma was solid but somewhat more subtle than I anticipated. Juicy citrus notes dominated. Equal parts orange, tangerine and grapefruit flesh. Pithy, rind-like notes were also apparent. There was a noticeable malty sweetness as well. Bit of resiny pine sap.

Like the nose, the flavor profile had somewhat of an old school, West Coast IPA-like character to it. Again, citrus dominated. Loads of orange and tangerine on the front end. Bit of rind-like pith. Good amount of sweet caramel malts as well. White grapefruit notes came through strong in the center. More grapefruit and grapefruit rind on the back end and in the finish. Some piney, resiny notes lingered after the swallow. Touch of bitterness but well balanced overall.

Really nice frothy, fluffy mouthfeel. Smooth and supple on the palate. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained a super fine, greater-than-average carbonation.

Frost Beer Works have been getting some attention in the last few years for their hazy, New England-style IPAs, but the two double IPAs I tried by them recently failed to really impress me. Both were fairly malty on the front end and pithy and bitter on the finish. They definitely reminded me more of a West Coast IPA than a typical juicy, fruity, New England take on the style.

Not my favorite from Frost. This one misses the mark.

Pours a cloudy medium orange with a fairly quickly dissipating half inch white head that left little lacing. Smells of tropical fruits, orange, sweet malts and a mild floral note. Tastes of orange, pineapple, peaches, honey like quality to the malt presence and a mild floral note. Finishes with very mild bitterness, creamy mouth feel, medium bodied and light to medium carbonation.

Pours a darker shade of gold with a decent head into my glass. Orange, mango and maybe passionfruit in the nose. A bouquet. Very sweet citrus bite upfront with passionfruit and mango undertones mated to doughy malt. There's something oddly refreshing about this effort. Worth a shot.

Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over a hazy medium golden body with some sticky lacing. Nose of tropical fruit (and oranges for days!) Primarily taste of oranges with other citrus as well. Very nice feel and overall, probably the fruitiest offering from Frost I've had. Yum. Cheers!
