Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kingcrowing on 05-12-2010

Abner (1867-1953) is our great grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his fourteen children. In his honor, this Double IPA is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Abner’s well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and double dry hopped. Aromatic and flowery, bursting with notes of citrus and pine, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Abner.

170 Theoretical IBU

Pale and Caramel Malt; Dextrose; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Rating from a draft I had on tap at the Mad Taco on 1/31/15. It's up there. All these Vermont Double IPAs is like arguing between being dropped in a shark tank with a cut open or left in a hungry grizzly beer cage wrapped in fish.

Look: A beautiful cloudy orange body that you cannot see through. The head is a white broken, irregular film that gathers halo style around the glass. White clingy legs.
Smell: Sweet, candied grapefruit and peaches. Very clean scent.
Taste: Super World-Class. Balanced tropical fruit and grapefruit. The sweetness is at a perfect level. The after-taste and finish are very clean.
Feel: Rounds everything out. Medium all the way around. Perfect feel and level of carbonation.

Overall - Impressive.
