Orange amber pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces fine. Nice hop aroma, not overwhelmingly bitter, but nicely present and complex - citrus, layers of tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, a bit of dank pine and resin, and just hints of pale malts in there. Great flavor as well, balanced hop bitterness, not too much, moreso packed with hop flavor, more citrus, tropical fruits, etc. Hints of pale malts just present and doughy enough to balance it out.
Serving type: growler

750 ml poured into Spiegelau.
A: Bright golden color, slightly hazy, pours with 2 fingers of white frothy head that reduces slowly and leaves great lacing.
S: Dominated by the grapefruit, mango, citrusy blend. Not much malt to speak of in the aroma. I like.
T: Very sweet, has a lot of the citrus characteristics present in the aroma that pop in the flavor. I do have to say, having had Harlan last night, I prefer the flavor profile of Harlan to Abner, as it has a more balanced profile all around.
M: Carbed well, fairly dry. Surprisingly bitter.
O: Solid offering by HF, definitely a beer I'd love to get again. The aroma and flavor leaned strongly towards the fruity/citrusy side.
Serving type: bottle
