On tap served in a pint from The Blue Door Pub reviewed from notes.
A- Nice fluffy one finger worth of head that lingered long. Great lacing and retention.
S- Hops bite your nose with citrus and tropical fruit hints.
T- Follows as the nose leads with citrus fruit punch and lingering pineapple and grapefruit.
M- Lacks the syrupy feeling common in DIPA/IIPAs and not overly thick. Finishes very dry an attribute I love in the abrasive when compared to others brewed under the same manner.
O- I wrote in my notes "Perfect" but this was not my first pint on this particular occasion but still rings pretty true. I love this ale. The bitterness hide the reasonably high abv Abrasive offers which needs to be taken into account since after only one or two is plenty for the consumer. The fact that this particular establishment served the Abrasive in pints and not smaller pours also could get people into trouble. Cheers.
Serving type: on-tap
