32oz grumbler pour into a snifter. Filled 3hrs ago.

A: Pours a mostly clear golden amber with a decent off white head sitting on top. Nice lacing on the sides of the glass as the head slowly dissipates. Not very much visible carbonation.

S: Farmhouse hop aroma is the first thing I think of when I smell this beer. A grassy bitterness mixes with a solid yeast base. Pale malts add a bit of balance to the mix. More of a fruitiness comes out of the hops as it warms up.

T: As with the aroma there is a nice mix of yeast and hops in the beer. A nice floral, grassy and earthy quality from the hop blends nicely with a bit of spiciness from the yeast. Alcohol comes through a bit on the backend.

M: Medium to full body with a nice creaminess. Mild carbonation with a fairly dry finish. A bit of a nectar like mouthfeel to it which I appreciate in IPA's.

Overall I am diggin the farmhouse characteristics in this beer but it needs a bit more of that hop flavor to really push it into the double IPA category.

On tap at Donnelly's Public House in Fairport, NY.

A really nice, hoppy IPA/saison combo we have here. It pours a shimmering, clear amber, with a billowing, 2 inch head. Nice lacing.

Smells and tastes very similar- like a great farmhouse ale- slight funk, Belgian yeast, cloves, plus dynamite hop flavors of pine, grassiness, and herbs. Very little malt, maybe slightly biscuity. Could be slighlty hoppier, maybe, but I don't think they were going for a hop bomb here. The hop flavors that are present are very nice, anyway.

Clean mouthfeel, pretty dry, medium body. Drinkable.

I love what Abandon is doing out of their barn in Penn Yan. With work, they could be the next big thing.

Poured a hazy copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light resinous pine and a round caramel.

The taste offered the same light resins with a soft earthy sweetness and moderate esters.

The mouthfeel was toward the cleaner side of the style.

Overall a tasty farmhouse inspired DIPA.

poured from a growler filled at the brewery yesterday.

appears a hazy opaque dark golden orange color, with bright white head. strong mixed hop aroma, part citrus rind, part herbal, almost basil. very pleasant. taste is well balance. light malt flavor - sweet with honey notes, finishes dominated by the same mix of hop flavor. not bitter, just bold hops. no booziness. lower carbonation, full mouthfeel that coats the mouth. so smooth. drinks remarkably easy.

of all the great beers drank at Abandon, this was the highlight for me.
