On tap at prohibition pig. A welcomed brew as we arrived at Vermont to start our Hill Farmstead Harvest Fest
A- Abner pours a hazy gold body with fair head of foam that slowly retreats. Very sticky with great lacing clinging to the edges of the glass
S- fresh pine scents and citric aromas burst from the glass with a complete blast of tropical tones. Very fresh and dank with the hop flavors. This is the explosive scent profile I look for in a DIPA
T- Thick blast of tropical citric flavors that are meshed with grapefruit, starfruit, and pineapples. There is a sugary malt type flavor that provides some sweetness and really compliments to aforementioned hop explosion. Abner completely exhibits flavors of a hoppy citric DIPA that so many hop heads look for
M- Smooth carbonation as the citric flavors clasp at the mouth leaving the desired sticky feeling. Very good feel from all that flavor
O- absolutely fantastic DIPA from Hill Farmatead. Shaun makes no secret about his affinity to citric hop bombs. Abner completely represents just that. One of the best DIPA's out there. Try to stop by prohibition pig if you are in Waterbury so you can give this a try
Serving type: on-tap

Had this on-tap at The Reservoir in Waterbury. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Shaun Hill's arrogance, I have to admit this brew is pretty legit.
A: Poured a very cloudy, golden color, with a slight, 1/2 finger head.
S: Floral in spades, with that certain "Dreadnaught-esque" candy-coated alcohol that is absolutely to die for.
T: Very Dreadnaught-esque in its IPA disposition: Fresh Orange juice, grapefruit, and some caramel and butterscotch thrown into the mix.
M: Hell, what do I know here. I guess I'll add that it's lowly carbonated, non-sugary, and damn-near perfect here.
O: This lives up to its hype, for sure.
