12oz can served in a snifter. Dated 7 28 19. Gift from @mr-jj.

Looks hazy with a medium head. Plenty of carbonation. Smell is boozy and tropical.

Taste is boozy, tropical, and boozy. Super ripe mango.

Mouthfeel is rich. Overall, nice beer.

This series is consistently a good value: $12 to $15 a 6/pack. The beer is numbered by volume, so, with a little research, you know if it's fresh or not, plus it's dated on the bottom of the can. This can is dated 7/11/19.

This beer is very citrus forward on the nose, mixed with a floral note, and the 8% hits you in a good, non-boozy way. Notes of pineapple, Red Delicious apple, even a sweet strawberry note.

The dregs of this beer are uggggggggggggly if you don't pour it into a glass, the dregs are treacherous looking when pouring it out to recycle.

I buy this beer every round and this is another solid entry into the AA series.

Latest installment of the Alpha Abstraction series. This one with Enigma hops.

Pours hazy golden yellow with thin lacy head. Smells of citrus and pineapple. Feel is light with a weak tail. Tastes is crisp and medium to light on hops. Not boozy for abv. Overall very pleasant double ipa.

I can't compare to the others in the series (they aren't here with me sadly). Maybe it's the 8% talking here, but I really enjoyed this one!! Highly recommended.
