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.

Abner pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a moderate sized creamy head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving a few spots and lines of lace on the glass.

The aroma is loaded with grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit and pine. Very hoppy.

Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is chewy and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is loaded with grapefruit citrus, lemon rind, mango and pine. Towards the end some sweet caramel malt appears. It finishes dry and moderately bitter. Once gone the grapefruit citrus and pine lingers on the palate.

This is a full flavored DIPA. The review is from a growler that was filled 24 hours ago. A terrific beer that's easy to drink.
