COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bye-Bye Frost is an exceptionally smooth quad pale ale hopped to the breaking point with Magnum to bitter, and the increasingly rare Styrian Golding and Amarillo hops to finish. Bye-Bye Frost will soon see you gone-gone.

On tap at Beermongers. A nice cloudy orangish/yellow. Smells like oranges, spice and vanilla. Spices, orange, citrus peel and a little hop bitterness. Drinks almost like an imperial white IPA. LIked it a lot, one of Elysian’s better and more special offerings.

pdx77 (1262) - Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2013
On draught at Bailey’s Taproom. Clear golden color. Aroma is tropical, slightly tart citrus fruits. Taste is slightly tart passionfruit and other tropical flavors, with a hint of sweetness. Smooth citrus aftertaste with just a hint of bitterness. Seems more like an imperial IPA than a barleywine.

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Sampled on tap. Pours amber with a lacy head. Aroma of a lot of caramel malts, and a good amount of floral hops. Flavor the same, but the malty notes are just too much. Smooth texture. An interesting beer but not the best.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Sample at the Pike Street location. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, caramel and fruit in the nose. Full-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, caramel malt and fruit. The finish is hoppy up front with a earthy, fruity aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Gription79 (2238) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Had this on draft at the Alaskan Barleywine festival. Malty, green, bitter, fruity. Not a solid start to an amazing festival.

mcberko (6045) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma is more like a spicy winter ale, with notes of cinnamon, coriander, light notes of caramel and apples. Flavour of vanilla, various winter spices, apple juice, and a pronounced hop profile at the end. The spices surprisingly work well with the barley wine base. Solid stuff.

ajax25g (59) - Washington DC, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft at Tangletown. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, honey, sweet roasted malt. Not very full bodied or cloying. Light copper color. Med carb, thought it’d be flatter. Taste is similar to nose. Hops dominate. Pretty bitter for a barley wine, but there is some sweetness. Not bad would drink again.

stantheman (628) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. Hoppy, fruity and malty. What’s not to like? Nice one!

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Amber color, with small head. Aroma of malt, star anise, orange peel. Good caramel flavor, with a hint of spices, and good bitterness level; some hop resins and hop fruitiness in the end.
Not as malty as a typical Barley Wine, very appreciated.

after4ever (6089) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Draft at the pike street. Pours a somewhat hazy medium gold with a loose white head. Sweet and pleasant nose of pine and grapefruit. Creamy heavy body with active but not pressing carb. Sweet mid-palate, lots of residual sugars in both the mouthfeel and the flavor profile. Not sticky, but definitely on the heavier side. Caramel, grapefruit, pine, pleasant piney finish.
