Abrasive is absolutely correct. And I mean that in a surly way.
A: It has a paler orange color than Furious, and less carbonation. Head leaves no lacing but a decent bone-white head of foam.
S: This is where it starts to gets crazy. Citrus heavy and floral notes. A hint of caramel. So sooo thick of an aroma you cant help but be overwhelmed. Someone run me a hop bath!
T: Grapefruit, grapefruit, grapefruit. A sweetness that enforces the citrusy hop bitter, but absolutely nose to rear this abrasive ale is chock-full of hops. A slight boozy character in the middle.
M: And the crazyness lingers...puckering, literally. Hangs in the pockets and coats the enamel as only quality lupulin should. My mouth is wearing a green dinner jacket and I like it.
O: Because of the Pint size can, I probably wont ask for seconds, buts it enough to keep you thoughtful and mindful of what good hoppage is.
Serving type: can
