4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can to glass. [[Canned 11/14] Pours a pale amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical hops - very fresh and clean. This beer tastes AMAZING. Itís like candied grapefruit and orange peel up front giving way to some tropical fruit flavors later. It is extremely crisp and clean in the finish as well. Itís quite light and slick in body with a soft carbonation and bitterness [somehow mixed with sweetness?!] finally showing up late in the finish. Overall this is an incredible double IPA. Probably my favorite to date. HUGE thank you to DangerRoss for this!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour a slightly hazy light orange, with a small white head.
Aroma is really crisp of tropical fruits, mango, plenty of caramel, slight grass and pine.
The taste is pretty bitter, with a faint sweetness to it. Very long and bitter aftertaste... Medium bodied, with a fizzy carnation. Pretty darn delicious. Thanks to The Dunt for sending me this.

A super hoppy and bitter beer that has a crisp bitter finish. Smells piney and hoppy. Pours a dark orange in color. Had in a can at home. Top 10 beer for sure.

Pours cloudy orange with white head and nice lacing. Potent aroma of citrus and grapefruit. The taste is the same intense hoppines with some flower and dankness on the backend. Just enough sweetness to keep it balanced. Really nice BIG beer.

Hazy pale orange in the glass. Really nice fresh hoppy aroma. The can is a month old.. Perfect! Grassy and citrussy with just a touch of sweet bud and slight fruitjuice somewhere.. Itís a wonderfull thing this nose. The palate is full for an ipa and the taste is fresh n clean. Thereís a hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste which for me is the only minor fault - personally! Other than that a full and crisp ipa. Want more...

16oz can shared by blankboy with me and biegaman. Slightly hazy amber-gold with an average bubbly-creamy off-white head. NICE aroma - sharply floral, light pine, a little tropical fruit, some alcohol - taste follows - balanced as all hell. Average body, almost stinging carbonation, medium-long pineapple - floral finish - so good.

Finally got an Abrasive! And, it lives up to the hype. The pour is a cloudy gold with aromas of citrusy hops. Abrasive is full of citrus and piney hops. Not overly bitter, but very flavorful, sweet, fruity and pretty balanced. I would love to put this up against Pliny the Elder, Hop JuJu and Heady Topper....yeah, itís that good!

Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. Cloudy gold pour. Clean aroma thatís a punch of potted plants, dank, flowers, and orange peel. Flavor is more pine than earthy with subtle citrus notes. Dry and aggressively bitter finish. Subtly addicting.
