Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Big thanks to TCassel1 for the HF hookup. Growler poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a rather murkey, pale orangish, yellow color. Big two finger off white head, nice retention, and big, thick lace.

A: Pine, and grapefruit. Huge hoppy nose, with a nice malt backbone to try and give this one some semblence of balance. The hops are fresh, smell great and actually give the beer a greenish tint to it.

T: Again, all about the hops, there has to be atleast 5 different varieties in there. This has got to be the bitterest beer that has ever touched my lips, but it's pretty darn good. Notes of orange peel, lemon, and pine sap. It finishes somewhat sweet.

M: Medium body, good levels of carbonation. The flavors dance around the palate nicely.

O: The nose is great, and this would be an A+ beer if not for the overpowering bitterness. I am a hophead, but this one almost pushes the envelope to far. But all in all another very good beer from HF. Skal.

Serving type: growler
