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.

Schnikies!!! Had no idea what I was walking into here, but SHAZAM! was I pleasantly impressed. Poured from tap into a tulip glass at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, Vermont. Deep orange/amber color and expected cloudiness. On the nose, the scent of citrus pine was easily overwhelmed by grapefruit/orange scents. On the palate, hops assert and the malts were nicely subdued. On the palate, the theme repeats itself, with a nice, clean hoppy burn on the end. The mouthfeel is more than drenching full/substantial. I think I like this well-crafted monster (dare I say it) better than the infamous Heady Topper of similar profile. All in all, a remarkably fabulous experience!
