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.

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.

This IS the best Vermont IPA, slightly edging out Lawson's Double Sunshine but certainly better than Heady Topper.

All Hill Farmstead beers are awesome. Sometimes I think about just camping outside there door just to be able to get some when I want.
