A one time cask tapped at Town Hall Tap fresh on 2/2/12. Poured into a snifter.

A. pours a very hazy soft orangish gold color, rich 1 finger head, after a minute or two, it rests are a 1mm ring with a nice island. Great lacing!

S. smells of grapefruit, pine, and nice mild oak

T. Taste of a very mild mellow flavor, mild grapefruit, good oak hints, hint of vanilla, with a hoppy after taste that only comes in after you swallow.

M. Medium body, thicker and chewy than most DIPAs. Soft and very smooth.

O. This is a killer beer. It does lose some of the normal Abrasive charm with the heavy bite and crisp hops, but it gains a new angle of thick and super smooth well rounded flavor.
