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.

Amazing beer! This beer pours from a swingtop bottle with a cloudy gold/oragne color. Aromas consist of grapefruit hops and malts. This beer follows suit with taste and have pear hints. The aftertaste is a little bitter with hints of hops. Great IPA!

A - cloudy pale golden in color like a hazy sun on a hot day. 3 fingers worth of pearly white foam bubbles up quickly.

S - nose is earthy/herbal and juicy/fruity. Freshly juiced oranges. Tangerines. Grapefruit. Sticky pine needles. Freshly Pollenated flowers.

T - if i had to sum it up in one word. Grapefruit juice. But since i can expand... Crisp and cracker-y malt profile. Grapefruit rind dominates. Lemon zest. Green leafy herbs. Lots of pine. More tropical fruits on the backend. Tangerine with a touch of guava.

M - lighter side of medium bodied. Texture is smooth yet watery. Very resinous on the palate. To be objective a bit astringent but i did not find it to be detracting.

O - an exemplary double ipa. A massive hop bomb yet it just calls to be quaffed dispite its high alcohol content.
