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 on tap at the brewery into a Hill Farmstead wine taster glass.

Pale amber body, light lemon hues and classic creamy white head, perhaps some faint peach and orange colors as well.

Nose is a real nice mix of peach fruit, and mild melon like hop aromas. Very subtle but also quite nice too.

Lots of carbonation on the palate with mild toasty grains that seem to follow on the finish. Peach like fruit takes some nice dominance but leaves some crispness and gaseous like feeling.

Overall pretty decent but a real subtle take on a double IPA.
