COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sure were abrasive. We were abrasive long before we were Surly. If you visit the brewery you can still see remnants of the industrial manufacturing factory Omars parents ran for 35 years within those same 4 walls. Bandsaw blades, grinding wheels, and sanding discs came long before ales and lagers. But lets be honest, this is a lot more fun. Pale in color, this over-hopped, under-brewed Double IPA has almost twice the amount of hops & malt crammed in the can. Seasonal between March and April.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Thanks kbutler1 for the 4 pack, you are the man. Beer is amber and clear (nice) with a monster white / yellow head of medium and large bubbles that leaves a monster amount of lacing on the glass. Carbonation is criminally low though... Aroma is ridiculously hoppy. Lots of nice plne hops in there. Smells great. Lots of body in this one. Some malt in the for front. Not quite what I was expecting, Ill take another taste, sweetness up front and a strong bitterness in the back. Beer is pretty good. There isnt much happening in the front of the palate. Overall its a pretty good but not as good as I hoped. Serving type: can

Poured into my ccb pint glass. Golden with a red tint and a two finger head. Aroma is wow, citrus light pine and creamy malts. Simply amazing. The taste completely follows the nose just intensified. Really complex and smooth. Very drinkable, very refreshing. The best dipa Ive ever had!

Another old backlogged rating from the 2010 RBSG: Deep orangy amber hue with a creamy light beige head and excellent lacework. The aroma is intensely fruity and flowery with notes of pineapple, mango, dragonfruit, lychee, pine needles, leafy hops, slight dank grassy vapours along with some green tea, rose hips, lemongrass, caramel, biscuit and a touch oniony. The taste is equally acidic, juicy fruit and bitter with a dank and garlic background. The malts are very much a background player here. Finished with a slight teabaggy dryness and some alcohol. The mouth feel is highly aggressive to the point of almost becoming annoying. Yep. A very nice DIPA but could be a touch more balanced but the name could not remain Abrasive.

Can from Bierkoning. Wow. Light amber with top head. Nice hoppy nose. Taste is nice and punchy. Lots of hops packed in there. Nice and bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Originally reviewed: 7/12/10. Poured into a tulip glass. Pours a dark amber hue with a thick off-white head on top. Excellent retention; left spotty lacing all over the glass. Big, powerful citrus notes waft out. Lots of pineapple, grapefruit, with a touch of pine needles. The body on this beer is a disappointment though. Very slick and thin. Expecting a full-bodied beer, the flatness really let me down. Great flavoring of grapefruit, some sweet orange, candied malts (gives it a sweet punch), and a great bitter afterbite. This is a good beer. Tweak that mouth and this is a stellar beer.

(Can) Pours light hazy dark orange to amber with a creamy off-white head. The aroma holds peach, canned pineapple, pear, apple juice, wild strawberries, mango/passion fruit sorbet, juicy melon, lychee, perfume, dank herbs, weed, grass, spicy pine, black tea, mild grapefruit, orange, cheese, toast, caramel and a touch of bread. The nose is fairly complex but not super aggressive (more on the subtle side if you as me). The flavor is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of citrus, wood, pine, herbs, grass, light fruits and clean toast. The mouthfeel is round, creamy and soft with a light carbonation. Pine and grapefruit on the finish. Lingering yet balanced afterbitterness. Medium bodied.

Awesome beer! Probably my favorite Imperial IPA. I wish they made this year round, but I suppose their Furious will have to do until next year! Cant wait to try their Wet.

Can, golden pour. Big resiny hop filled aroma. Big hop flavor, tea notes, great flavor, not harsh bitterness. Easy drinking 9% DIPA. Need more surly
