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.

This beer comes in a bright hazy lemon yellow.

The aroma is big juicy hops of pineapple, mango, peaches. A bit of yeasty note along with a light white bready malt. The beer has a medium plus to heavy bitterness.

The beer despite the lack of Citra or newer American hops has beautiful fruity flavors, despite a theme of pine and herbacious bitterness. It is one of the best hoppy beers from Hill Farmstead outside of Societe and Solitude #6 and Susan, of the ones I have had.

Serving type: growler
