    Thank you for sharing, sir. I am always interested in the outcome of blind tastings, regardless of style. Cheers!

    I think most people understand the limitations of blind taste tests. If anything, I'd say people underestimate the degree to which expectations, context, branding, label art, appearance, etc. influence taste perceptions.

    Blind taste tests generally eliminate more confounding factors than other approaches to comparing beers. As you note, it simply doesn't eliminate all of them.

    Fresh Abravive is simply amazing. Next year keep an eye on France 44 say at Thanksgiving and give them a call. Fresh usually under 15 days old dropped at your door.

    I've only had the 3 Treehouse and the Abrasive. I pretty much agree but I would rank Green as the best.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I was fortunate to try one week old Abrasive earlier this year and thought it was an incredible beer....among my favorites...the other beers, with the exception of Dreadnaught, regrettably are not available in our area.

    Thanks for sharing your results, I love to do these type of tastings as well. Ignore the guys attempting to suck the fun out of this.
