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.

Growler purchased by TauroE and brought to CT. One of the best beers, it ranks a perfect score easily

Appearance is golden with small head
Smells of predominantly pine, citrus and then a hint of pinecone
Tastes less bitter than heady with all the taste/mouthfeel
Limited biscuit
Outstanding on all metrics and a easy must buy and seek out whenever possible

growler into tulip.

A: slightly hazed orange. deep at the center. head is on the boarder of being bright white. good retention, even better lacing.

S: a mild black pepper. sticky nose. a lot of hop oil and resins. smells like American hop pellets, in a good way. pineapple. maybe some kiwi. pleasant and inviting.

T: there is a definite cereal flavor right in the middle of the this drink. mmmm, cereal. starts more citrus than anything. hoppy, resiny, but not overly sticky or in-your-face. really appreciate the balance.

M: carb is frizzy, almost mellow. full bodied.

D: dangerously drinkable. great hop nose, great hop flavor, even better balance. glad the malt has a say in this fight. worth seeking.

Another HF growler shared by Liam

Hazy golden orange colour, one finger of dense white head with a solid ring of lace. Smell is quite dank with tropical fruits, some fuzzy peach and a bit of lingering malt. Taste is hoppy with lots of grapefruit and dank pine resin flavours, more citrusy as it goes dry with a moderate malt flavour as well in the finish. Medium carbnation, dry and fairly full bodied. Excellent stuff here, so incredibly easy to drink with no alcohol to taste, would drink this as often as I could.
