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.

Poured from growler into tulip--thanks again @hopsynonomous!
A: Cloudy, murky yellow/gold colored beer. Big white head (2 fingers) with great retention.
S: Juicy tropical fruits (grapefruit, oranges, peach), some floral notes, the malt breadiness is there too, with big sweet sugariness/caramel on the back end. Really complex smells that work well together
T: Citrus and pine blend together so well with the malt. I'm normally a much more hop forward guy when it comes to DIPAs but this is done so well. Its funky, dank--the grapefruit/tropical fruits are creamy and juicy without being too sweet, too.
M: Drinkability is crazy--nice mouthfeel (medium/full) and good amount of carbonation.
O: The hype is real! I've been waiting quite a while to get my hands on this one. Its incredibly well done (shocking, this is HF right?) and just so damn drinkable for 8.2. Hard to say much more here other than go get this one!

Phenominal Taste, Full body, balanced hops and malts make this one of the best Doupl IPAs ive ever had, better than heady topper for me.
