Frost Lush Double IPA

Review Date 11/2/2023 By John Staradumsky

           

Well hereís another fine beer from Frost Beer Works of Hinesburg, Vermont: Lush Double IPA. This is not the first beer I have had from Frost, though it is the first one I am reviewing. I have tasting notes on Frost Coffee Porter and Frost heavy Imperial Stout I need to flesh out into reviews. Eventually, I will.

But first, the Lush Double IPA. The brewery says:

A double IPA with luxuriant aromatics and succulent flavors. The combination of hops from both hemispheres and our ale yeast join forces to create rich, juicy character.

It was a Sunday afternoon in late October when I popped my can. The Patriots game I watched stunk (I never miss a game though), poor execution on our part, horrible officiating, and more injuries. The Dolphins played a great game. This New England beer helped ease the pain, if only a bit, with its super juicy citrus, stone fruit, and tropical notes.

Frost Lush Double IPA has an alcohol content of 8% by volume and I paid $6.99 for my pint can from Half Time Beverage. That can was stamped PIZZA PIZZA 06/08/23 on the bottom.

Frost Lush Double IPA pours to a hazy orange color with a thick fluffy white head of foam and a nose of luscious citrusy orange and tangerine. Taking a sip, the beer is medium in body, about average for the modern style. I get the citrusy orange on sipping, some stone fruit apricot, orange marmalade, and some tropical papaya, too. The beer is very fruity but lacking in enough bitterness at the last to my taste. Itís balanced, but I want more, though I do get a little more as it warms. Still, it is tasty and I very much enjoyed it. Does not seem as strong as it is, either, and it is dangerously drinkable. Enough of this one and you could be a lush, so enjoy it in moderation, friends. But be sure to enjoy it, because it is a very fine beer indeed.

Glad I tried it?  T

Would I rebuy it??
