784. Frost Beer Works Another VT IPA

Frost beer Works Another VT IPAFirst beer from Frost Beer Works in Hinesburg, Vermont. Have not made it to the brewery yet but that will change the end of the month as I have a 3-day conference in the area and I should have time to stop by and check out the space. In the meantime I traded some Maine beers for some Vermont beers on a recent trip to Hill Farmstead. I like the simple label design and naming structure of Frost Beer Works line up.

Deep amber color with a thin white head. Carbonation seemed light and the head disappeared relatively quickly for an IPA. Aroma was mild but pleasant with a mix of tropical fruit and a nice sweetness. Taste is bitter up front followed by the tropical fruits and a sweet malt finish. Odd to have the bitterness on the front end but it worked.

Overall this is a very well balanced, refreshing IPA from Frost Beer Works. This was one of the first round of beers released so it may improve as they get things dialed in a bit more.
Pros: Well balanced
Cons: Light on carbonation, might be intentional 
Alcohol Content: 7.0% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): 70
Brewers Website: Frost Beer Works
Brewers Description: a balanced, aromatic IPA with six malts, a Mosaic/Citra dry hop, and the signature of VT’s ale yeast. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas from hops complement malt smoothness and nuanced yeast complexity to create a flavor that encourages having another sip.
