Fills the glass with a nice hazy peach color and crowned by a bright white head. Wonderfully aromatic with a big whiff of citrusy hop goodness right up front. Tropical and floral with little room left for malt aromas to come through.
First sip brings any hop-lover into an instant state of bliss. Grapefruit and a hint of pineapple comes come foreword first before the resiny pine character packs its punch. Pleasantly bitter in the finish but well-rounded enough to keep your palate in line.
Mouthfeel is medium-heavy and smooth with a slightly drying finish. Overall, Abner is an exceptional DIPA that deserves to be right up there with the best of them. Very reminiscent of Heady Topper, with just a bit more bitterness and not quite as fruity.
Serving type: growler
