I pretty much stopped reviewing new beers, but i thought this one was special. Appearance is a guess, I drink this one like I drink HT out of the can. The nose is a grapefruit smashed into the can, really a wonderful smell, and if i get this up front I generally l know I'll love the beer. The taste really follows the nose, lots of citrus, and a ton on hops right up front. Not quite as balanced as HT, and a little more bitter, this one is very close in taste profile, but I think Abrasive has more citrus hits. This is a great brew from start to finish, and it's a little sad when you hit your last sip out of your last can. If this was available all the time it would always be in my fridge as would HT, sitting side by side where they would belong. 15 bucks a 4 pk isn't exactly cheap either, but as always france 44 gives you fresh stuff.
