Availability: Rotating

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.

Pour is a hazy golden yellow with tons of tight white head. Nose is huge, tons of bitter grapefruit with notes of pine and hop resin. Taste is more balanced, notes of grain and some underlying sweet malt. Extremely clean with no sugars, tons of hop punch. Strong grapefruit and pine with a touch of resin. Bitterness is present but well integrated through the soft well carbonated finish. Body is delicate and light. Great stuff.

A: Very hazy and yellow/orange in color. Great two finger foamy head that continues to linger for awhile.

S: Very fruity and piney upfront with citrus and tropical notes. .

T: Nicely dry and refreshing. Solid bitterness throughout but not harsh or overpowering. Citrus with a bit of lemon some mango.

M: Medium carbonation. Nicely dry and crisp. Very refreshing.

O: A little over-hyped but really solid and something I would always drink. Reminds me of Lunch.
