Can you say hops?
Great earthy taste. Very bitter, mouthfeel is very smooth, but perfectly carbonated.

HMOG 2014. Big can shared with like 15 other chums. Ok this is as good as the hype is, but IIPA is generally one of those styles that generally is. Candy sweet hops that are over the top citrus, caramel somewhere in there. Damn good. Big bitter.

Can. Pours a cloudy orange with thick white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is pine and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with strong pine and fruit hop. Easy to drink. Very good.

Fresh on draft and in can. Someone I was with once accurately described Abrasive as a double IPA version of the similarly Citra-hopped Zombie Dust. Well said I say. I tried side-by-side with Three Floyds' Dreadnaught (different beers to be sure) and felt that they represented the present and past quintessential Imperial IPA, respectively. These days, I want Abrasive.

[My can (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a hazy gold with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma: Wow! So much citrus hops along with tropical fruit and a hint of alcohol. Flavour is quite hoppy and fruity, with lots of citrus and tropical fruit, a hint of alcohol and a long moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. I loved it!

Poured from a can a friend flew back from Minnesota with earlier today. Aroma is pine and grapefruit, tastes fresh, hoppy, just a little sweetness. Great!

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.
