    Had a friend who brought a bottle from Oregon last year. It was epic. Loved it.

    The cans have my favorite artwork of any beer. I welcome any hoppy winter beers for a nice change of pace.

    Which Abominable? HUB and Fremont both make one, and I really like them both.

    Based on the one bottle I got through letspour, it was good. Not amazing, but good.

    I thought Fremont Abominal was ok. Didn't do too much for me. I loved the BA aged version.
