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.

Teku glass.

A: Pours orange-tinted pale colored with two fingers of dense, fluffy off white head which slowly deflates. Very good retention, leaving a thick ring and some surface head for much of the duration, and generous swaths of lacing.

S: Pretty long-reaching aroma, I can initially smell it from a foot away. Candied tangerine, hint of a tropical note, peach, pink grapefruit, an undertone of breadiness/cracker.

T: Floral and light pine notes, pink grapefruit rind, pale crackery malt, finishing with a mild, lingering bitterness and noticeable sugar. Alcohol is almost completely hidden.

M: Kind of a yin-yang, with soft, milky medium-full body and sharp, medium carbonation. Leaves your mouth completely dry.

O: Very good, well constructed beer. Quite drinkable. That being said, it wasn't quite blow-my-mind good, and it seems that there are much easier to get options out here in SoCal (e.g., most IPAs from Alpine would be better than this). But I was very glad for the opportunity to try this.
