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 filled 8/8/14 and poured into Belgian ale glass same day.

A) Cloudy amber, big head with good retention and lots of lacing.

S) Very floral up front, malts and some yeast in background.

T) This is all about the hops, very little of anything else. You get tropical and citrus flavors, lots of them.

M) Medium-bodied, light carbonation, very good balance, dry finish.

Definitely lives up to billing. Too bad the brewery is 625 miles away or I would be a frequent customer.
