This is an incredible beer. Very hoppy. An almost overwhelming hop hit that is followed by just the perfect punch of bitter. Slightly better than doggie style and a step above 60 min.

POSSIBLY NOW MY FAVORITE BEER; BETTER THAN SIERRA X-MAS, AND BETTER THAN HOP DEVIL.

The beauty of beer is that there is something for everyone. To me Hopdevil is world class, the best there is. Well, move over Hopdevil, Frostbite is that good. Great aroma, beautiful color, and head. Very creamy, smooth, and the taste is world class. Perhaps the best beer I’ve ever had.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 This could possibly be my new favorite IPA, and its now readily available! Fresh aroma of cut grass, pine trees and lemon pepper marinade. Nice copper color with a fluffy head. Hello dry hop resin. Tantalizing array of hop nectar greets you, lemon zest, pine cone and some leafy lemon grass. Enough malt to keep you going, but not as sweet as say Titan. Very similar to Snoqualmie but made right here in ole NYS! Real town, Real beer. Come and get it boys!

Lake Placid IPA is a cloudy amber ale with some particles in it. It has a nice, dense, light beige head with great retention and it leaves thick crust on the glass. The aroma is very fresh! Citrus, pine and resin are up front, but there is a lurking sweetness in the nose. It is medium bodied and incredibly smooth and soft. The finish is clean and dry. So often, a beer this hoppy takes a ding on the mouth feel, but not this one. The flavor is very well balanced. It is a bold one-- reminds me of something from Stone. There is a resiny tone that centers the entire taste. There is a nice sweetness underneath and grapefruit peel is prominent. It is very difficult not to chug this beer.

Draught @ Drafting Room, Exton: Aroma was hoppy and bitter with hints of grapefruit, resin, and pine. Poured dark amber in color with a small, creamy, off-white head that lasted. A little cloudy. Very good lacing. Flavor was bitter! Hoppy (Amarillo?). Hints of pine and resin. Nice flavor. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Long bitter finish. Overall, a very good IPA I will need to get again. Similar to TwoRows Hopzilla from Dallas.

Dark copper color......slightly hazy. Fluffy white head. Mellow floral aroma......not overpowering. Very balanced front, yet still there is a noticeable hop flavor......extremely smooth mouthfeel for an IPA. Tangy hop taste in the back with a long bitter finish. This beer is very complex and seems to have qualities of many different styles.

Pours a hazy copper from the growler with a medium white head that hangs around a little. Nice lacing. Wonderful aroma, mostly floral hops, with some honey and grapefruit/citrus. Delicious beer, nice start with some maltiness and mild hop flavor, bursting with hops in the middle. Finishing with a tantalizing bitter that begs you to take another sip. Another sip I will take, followed by another and another. I like this a lot.
