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.

A- Pours a hazy golden straw color with half a finger+ of near white head. Good retention, great lacing.

S - Skunky piney aromas, lots of tropical/citrus sweetness and rind. (pineapple, orange, mango).

T - Big hoppy rind bitterness up front. Lots of tropical sweet fruits mix with skunky resinous flavors. Tons of hop resin. Exactly as it smells but much more amazing.

M - Medium/lightish bodied, well carbonated, superbly drinkable

Freshly filled growler at Hill Farmstead, enjoyed that evening in a snifter glass.
Pours a hazy medium to light tangerine color.
The aroma is simply stunning. Perfection for a fruity/citrusy double IPA.
Tasted amazing, plenty of juicy mango/grapefruit hops.
Mouthfeel was nice, a bit light with thousands of tiny bubbles on my tongue.
Overall this beer is phenomenal and worthy of world-class designation.
Fantastic!
