Straight up im a sucker for that insane doub smell and the abner delivers a smell thats right up there withe the best DIPAs. Hops for days hits you in the face and it hurts so good. I think of this as a perfect mix between Lawsons doub sunshine (more tropical) and Heady Topper (more citrus). I found a perfect mix between citrus and tropical fruit, however that hoppyness took the cake. I pick up on some more earthy resinous tastes that I quire enjoy, but not as much as some DIPAs- well ballanced I was fortunate to drink it fresh as hell so the carbonation was on point. One of the best HFs I have tried so far and not too far removed from the Society & Solitude #6 but on a differnt level- whatever there so damn good its hard to go wrong with an HF

I was lucky enough to try this on tap in Waterbury, VT tonight. Pours a hazy orange color, with a thick creamy head. Smell is excellent; very hoppy, tending more towards the citrusy side, but it's complex. Tastes very much like the smell. It's full of hops, but well balanced with a bit of malt. It's not overly bitter, but not even close to sweet. Mouthfeel is outstanding; Full, with real body, perfectly carbonated. Overall, this beer is all about balance. It's not quite perfect, but the balance of all the factors is pretty damn amazing. Easily one of the best DIPA's I've ever had.
