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.

skoisirius (1908) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Draft at the 2009 Great Elysian Beer Festival. Looks like they’re actually still making this one too. Big sweet malts with hints of molasses and some dark fruits. Same on palate. Pretty good.

flannelnomad (57) - portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2014
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 (1483) - 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 (5293) - 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 (11607) - 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 (2838) - 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 (14663) - 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.
