Here is today's sample, 8 days after pitching. Gravity at 1.006ish

Aroma is awesome even with dry hopping yet, citrus, pineapples, smooth.

Can't wait to try this in a few weeks for real.

I took Vegan's latest posted version of this and tweaked it a little. I think I'm remembering correct that he said it could stand to be a bit darker, so I subbed C40 instead of C20. I also used Cara-Pils instead of the Malto Dextrin he recommended. I dry hopped with 2oz of Citra and 1oz of Warrior.

I'm calling this batch "Abrasion" (small glass on the left in the photo)..

The color is almost spot on. Abrasion (my homebrew) is just a hair lighter in color. The Aroma is almost exactly the same, but Abrasive has a touch more pine in the nose. The flavor is almost identical, with Abrasive being slightly more dank. The head and mouth feel are a perfect match. I'm usually hard pressed to ever call something a clone, but this is as close as I've ever experienced. I made a few changes to Vegan's recipe, but he definitely gets all the credit for this!

Thanks for sharing Vegan! As far as I'm concerned I have a keg full of Abrasive(ish)!
