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.

75cl growler generously shared by Doug today, 9/6/2013. Poured into a Bell's snifter. Review #196.

Alright, so this beer pours a clear copper body. Perhaps straw-orange. With that trademark Hill Farmstead 2cm white head that has awesome retention. Not a whole lot of lacing on this actually, but who cares?

Nose is not as pungent as Susan which we drank earlier today, but it just smells better.. its got that orange zest combined with citrus and tropical fruit.. but the biggest contribution is that floral scent. Deliciously floral. Great nose still, but Susan and Ephraim has it beat.

But you know what, that flavour profile is so incredible. So complex with tons of citrus and tropical fruit. It has that great malty backbone that isn't too strong but just balances out all the hoppiness in this beer. Its such a perfect balance for a DIPA.

Mouthfeel, again is that incredible creamy Hill Farmstead full body. I have never had such a full bodied double IPA. Again there is just something in that damn well water, I want to go visit Hill Farmstead, use the bathroom and fill up a water bottle and send it into a lab for analysis so I can treat my homebrew like so. Aftertaste is that bitter citrus flavour, but not so strong. It is so incredibly drinkable, even more so than Susan was. Can't tell that this beer is 8.2%, not at all. It drinks like a session beer.

Overall this beer is one of the best double IPAs I've ever had. It beats out Pliny and Heady, but its kind of unfair since this is Hill Farmstead we're talking about. It's up there with Double Sunshine as one of the best to come out of Vermont.

Growler of Abner, consumed within 2 weeks.
Hill Farmstead glassware

A - Abner pours a bright peach-orange hue with a one finger head of white foam that quickly dissipates. Lacing abounds. Like all of Hill Farmstead's beers, this one is unfiltered and opaque.

S - A very nice, tropical, citrus nose, with some papaya, pineapple, and a little bit of peach, nectarine aroma. Very floral.

T - Hop bitterness, Citrus fruits and floral all in perfect balance. Pick up the tropical fruits as well.

M - Maybe the best mouthfeel out of all the great DIPA's I've ever had. Smooth, creamy, balanced. Leaves your mouth watering which most powerful DIPA's don't. You're usually left with a puckering and dry palate but not here.

O - Heady Topper to me is the greatest IPA of all-time, but this one is right behind and it and in the same ballpark. The hop character even reminds me of Heady. I don't know how Shaun keeps pumping out world class IPA's but he does. If your a fan of IPA's this is a must try. Craftsmanship at it's best.

750ml swingtop growler.

Thanks for making this one possible Brendan

*note, there was partial leakage upon arrival. This was filled a week ago and in my possession yesterday.

Pours an extremely cloudy copper. Place a laser directly behind it and shine it right at it and you wouldn't pick up even a hint of it. A small 1 finger of white head forms, but there most likely would've been more if this hadn't leaked. A decent amount of webbing a left behind.

Hill Farmstead really provides excellent aromas in all their brews. Huge bursts of ripe mango and apricot punch you right in the face. Some good earthy tones. Then in comes the hops. Not overwhelming, but definitely there. Very nice, inviting smell.

Taste follows precisely. Slightly less hops than expected, but again, that could be victim of the minor leak.

Mouthfeel is uber creamy. Slightly too creamy for the style, but again, yada yada, leakage.

It might be unfair to rate this under the circumstances, but I felt like I got the gist of it. I don't feel like my review can hurt this at all. A's are A's. This is one I definitely hope to revisit under better conditions.

Straight up im a sucker for that insane doub smell and the abner delivers a smell thats right up there withe the best DIPAs. Hops for days hits you in the face and it hurts so good. I think of this as a perfect mix between Lawsons doub sunshine (more tropical) and Heady Topper (more citrus). I found a perfect mix between citrus and tropical fruit, however that hoppyness took the cake. I pick up on some more earthy resinous tastes that I quire enjoy, but not as much as some DIPAs- well ballanced I was fortunate to drink it fresh as hell so the carbonation was on point. One of the best HFs I have tried so far and not too far removed from the Society & Solitude #6 but on a differnt level- whatever there so damn good its hard to go wrong with an HF

On tap at the Blind Tiger Ale House 8/18/15. It was piney and floral, slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Very unique tasting, kind of an east coast exploration of a west coast IPA. Like no other DIPA I've tried. Impressive.

Poured from a growler, fresh from the brewery into a modified tulip glass.

A - Medium haze like a great IPA, fine one finger snow white head. Lacing clings to the edges, delicate and fine.
S - Tropical pine, if there is such a thing. Mango mashed with spruce, and grapefruit. The nose is complex and a bit formidable.
T - Straight from the nose, lots of fruit. The challange is corraling all that flavor. It swirls and dances acros the palate. Alcohol is buried in the maelstrom.
M - Medium bodied. A thick slick feel. Nothing offensive, with a clean tight finish. The fact there is not a long lingering oil from all those hops speaks to the design and exceution from the brewer. Stunning quality.
O - The beer is simply wonderful. The hop profile is significent, however the beer is crafted with such detail that nothing is offputting. The flavor and nose dance a delicate duet that culminates in, delight.

Cheers all

Hazy medium orange color with a modest bone white head that leaves a light sticky lacing on the glass.

A big aroma, bursting with grapefruit, a bit of lemon and lots of pine. Even the empty growler smells good.

Big citrusy hops taste, blending with resiny hops leading to a very pleasant bitter finish. Malt sweetness is present just to the extent of balancing but not detracting from the hops.

Juicy, smooth and round mouthfeel with good carbonation. A bit of mild peppery character, but not at all detracting from the flavors.

This beer has very well integrated flavors that seem to take turns vying for attention. It is one of the most drinkable beers at this abv I have ever experienced.

Fresh from the brewery.

A. It has a thick, opaque yellow color with a big foamy white head and lots of lacing.

S. A lovely lemon, rye and wheat scent.

T/M. There's a nice, sweet citrus taste, with a bit of a lemon undertone. A slight bitterness, with a good rye feel in the back. Smooth and medium bodied. A bit of an apple peel.

O. Very complex and sweet, but not over the top. A great grassy flavor.

and the bday weekend started off with a bang. cracked this open on friday night to enjoy while hanging out with dylan. poured into a pint glass.

Poured a dep hazy amber with a big billowing white head that was so sticky it literally collapsed on the inside but the top and sides stayed together. Big time lace and alot of carbonation coming up from the bottom of the glass.

deep citric smell. Lots of grapefruit and orange, with a touch of pineapple and Lemon thrown in. The taste was out of this world. Bigtime hoppy IPA. Not alot of alcohol taste, well covered up. But soo sticky with hop resin and orange and grapefruit taste. nice buttery malts mixign in now and creamy, sweet like flavors have now become the norm. really well balanced and big. It was rediculously fresh tasting and feeling. Unreal smooth and great dry finish.

Not too harsh, but yet harsh. Strong but not upfrontly so. this was a killer dipa that i was glad i opened up!

This brew was poured from a refillable 750mL Hill Farmstead bottle, filled at the brewery growler-style, into our Founders snifters. It glows a coppery golden orange, putting up a two finger head of creamy off white bubbles. This shows nice retention, leaving thick honeycombed lacing around our glasses. A definite haze cuts clarity, but no sediment is noted. Carbonation appears to be moderate. The nose is richly citric and resiny of hops, with pale and lightly metallic toast of grain, fresh apricot, pineapple, and nectarine fruitiness, and a floral honeysuckle air blowing across the top of it. With warmth the aromatics really start to flourish, giving enhanced hoppy bite and sweetness of grapefruity, floral, and softly earthy varietals, mineral-laden well water, mud, black pepper booziness, muscat grapes, graham cracker breadiness, fresh mint leaf, blackboard chalk, and fresh peppery vegetals. Our first impression is that the flavoring gives extraordinarily juicy and fruity hops, but with nice balancing bite from the harder water and zing of grain. As we sip, the taste begins with a strong interplay between starkly, but authentically, sweet nectarine, tangerine, and pineapple syrups, and the dominant power of grapefruit rind, hop, and stem. These are met and balanced by a menagerie of raw honey, white grape sweetness, sulfuric mineral, lemon rind, herbal and earthy leafiness, cooling vanillas, lactic creaminess, metallic yeast juiciness, and solidly pale grain. The middle comes to a peak with lemon and grapefruity hops, herbal and spicy malt undertones, ethanol, gravel, mineral water hardness, mango fruitiness, and floral clover sugars. The finish is awash with pale graininess, effectively cutting the hoppy onslaught, along with newspaper inkiness, bright yeastiness, chalk and graphite, shitake meatiness, mango, strawberry, and pineapple fruitiness, and sweet booziness, with more of an herbal hoppiness shining through the ashes of the former grapefruit gods. The aftertaste breathes bitterly of grapefruity rind, seed, and juice, sweetly of nectarine and white sugars, pale grain, ghostly wheat, gravel, distant bubblegum esters, planty sap and resins, bittering moss and musk, light amber maltiness, and sea saltiness. The body is medium to full, and carbonation is medium to high. Each sip gives beautifully soft and creamy slurp, smack, froth, and glug. Finishing pop is nice and long. The mouth is left cooled and wetly coated, with eventually mild tannic astringency across the palate, and moderately robust pucker. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks incredibly well.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its flavoring. While the nose gives a strong, balanced, juicy rendition of the liquid to come, the ultimate taste is astonishing from that first sip. The hops remain dripping wet, sweet, and juicy, but take on a curiously strong bitterness of grapefruity rind and citrics. The yeast works its way in giving bitterness, along with that harder well water that is so apparent, but seamlessly inclusive. The feel on the sip gives just about all you could ask for, with frothy brushes of creaminess and enough pucker to wake you up. This is a must have from Hill Farmstead, and well deserved of the reputation it has thus far attained.

Matthew, I can not thank you enough for this. Not only do you drive all the way to HFS to get me a growler of this, but you also bring it to within 10 miles of my apartment. Thank you.

Pouring a moderately hazy orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention and gorgeous lacing, this is among the nicer DIPA's I've laid eyes on. And the nose! Does it bring to mind Pliny (the Elder) or what?! The nose has such a wonderful Simcoe character, fresh, juicy, tropical fruit along with a beautiful ripe orange character! Ripe apricots, oranges and with some floral characteristics, this smells truly wonderful.The malt character is medium-low, with a little caramel, and some mild bready and cracker-like notes. A little alcohol is noticeable, but never in a detrimental way. One could even argue that the juicy hops almost make some of the fruit character appear candied.

The palate comes close to out-Plinying Pliny. That's not something I would say easily, simply because Elder (IMO) stands apart from almost every other DIPA out there due to the way that it captures both, the delicacy that hops can bring with their power. Abner, in my book, is the only other beer this big that does that. Juicy citrus with a melange of tropical fruit (ripe papayas, ripe mangoes, ripe oranges). A touch sweet on the mid-palate with a blend of citrus juice sweetness (from the hops) and some light caramel malt and honey. Drying on the finish with an exquisite blend of mellow bitterness and ripe, redolent fruit. Bitterness is moderate throughout, in balance with the fruity sweetness that the hops bring. Not particularly resiny either. Medium-light in body, this beer is a little too carbonated (initially at least), and has a wonderful finish. Of particular note is the lack of a green/leafy hop character that many hop-bombs end up having. Absolutely delicious, exceptional stuff, my favorite HFS beer yet.

750 growler into my fave snifter, i can already smell it...

A- really big carbonated head that has superior retention and great lacing. Theres a slight haze to the orange body and above that is foamy white head thats just kind of hanging out. This looks really nice but what else is new from HF.

S- I could smell it once I opened it. Earthy bitterness and citrus zest are the most noticeable along with some sharp citrus scents, nice aroma

T- Nice balance of sweet and bitter hops. Nice sharp bitterness upfront that carries throughout. nice zesty citrus bitterness comes through toward the middle and has a grapefruit-y sweetness. The finish is bitter and lingers. This hits all the areas I want in an (D)IPA

M- probably a medium body but feels much fuller. moderate amount of carbonation fizzes and turns very smooth.

O- This beer is top notch stuff. The taste is pretty close to perfect to me. Mainly bitter with some sweet citrus. It also poured beautifully and was a very enjoyable beer.

750ml growler poured into a snifter.

A: pours a hazy orange with a half inch frothy white head. Fades quickly, but lacing remains sticky, clinging throughout the glass.

S: great, tropical aroma as soon as the growler was opened. Lots of grapefruit and orange come through massively.

T: Citrusy goodness. Follows the nose completely. Lots of orange, mango and grapefruit. Sweet flavor with just the right dry, bitter finish. Extremely refreshing.

M: extremely smooth with medium carbonation. Extremely easy drinking, without the slightest hint of alcohol.

O: as good as any DIPA I've had. I'd go out of my way to trade for that one again

Had this at the "Prohibition Pig" in the wonderful Waterbury, VT. This beer was delicious and definitely on par with the Heady Topper although quite different tasting. The Edward is one of my favorite beers and this tastes almost identical to me only with more body and higher ABV. The aroma was out of this world with lots of pine and citrus. Remarkable smooth and the perfect pairing with the 12 hour smoked brisket and bacon BBQ sauce.

8oz pour into Pinocchio's brandy snifter on 9/15/11. Served generously to me at Pinocchio's in Media, PA (thanks Tim and Dan). Fresh tapped that day.

A: I have seen reviews down the line here that have it much different then what I got. For me, it was a mildly hazy orange color. There was some sediment floating in there, but not much. Good carbonation. Faint white head that dissipated really quickly. There were some alcohol feet seeing as it is 8.2%. Some lacing, but not much.

S: It was probably up there on one of the best smelling DIPAs that I have had. Maybe it was just the freshness factor, I don't know. Tons of fruity hops and pine notes. Delicious. There was some mild breadiness at the back end from the malts though.

T: Flat out delicious tasting beer. Not overly bitter on the front of the tongue. There was a mild bite there. But it gets you in the mid-mouth. All those fruity hop flavors: grapefruit and peach and other citrus. But you also get some piney notes. And those malts are there to SOME WHAT balance out this hop bomb. Very nice finish. Very clean.

M: This is a medium bodied DIPA. With all those hops, there was bound to be some flavors lingering on the tongue for a while.

O: Just a truely exceptional DIPA. Really ranks up there for me....just like with most BAers. I'd love to sample again down there line. Cheers to Tim and Dan.

A- pour is hazy, yellow color with ridiculously tight-packed bubbles. Wow!
S- I got citrus in the realm of grapefruit, apricot, tangerine.
T- really. Hits you with bitter citrus like orange peel, lemon rind, danky bitterness. Superb!
M- rich and creamy medium-bodied. Soooo good. Finishes nicely, not really dry at all.
O- this is truly a world-class IPA.

Description: Golden color and clear as could be with a white head and lacing. Aroma or citrus, mandarin orange, apple, floral, maybe a bit of pine and something a little earthy. Fruit and apple come through on the taste and bitterness is just enough. The beer is extremely well balanced and leaves a very clean, dry aftertaste that slowly dissipates off the tongue. For an IPA, it's a very full-bodied, 'meaty' beer if not quite velvety.

Suggested food pairing: Salmon (grilled or baked)

If you like this beer then you should also try: Sip of Sunshine

Ideal time to drink this beer: After a day of fly fishing in Vermont you've collected an impressive stringer of salmon, trout and other wild, free-range, organic fish (all fish in Vermont are like this). Since you prize farm-to-table freshness so much, you don't even bother to get home before you clean you fish and immediately place it over a wood campfire that you've built beside the river from wild, free-range, organic wood (all wood in Vermont is like this). To cap it off, you reach into your bag and draw out the wild, free-range, organic growler (all growlers in Vermont are like this) of Abner that you purchased that same day and enjoy it with your catch.

Overall: 4.75 (This beer is excellent and I would definitely drink it again) This is the first beer I've had from Hill Farmstead and it exceeds expectations, which were high to begin with. Complex flavors, perfectly balanced, with just the right amount of bitterness. This is an extremely drinkable beer. Everything about it exudes quality and craftsmanship. HF beers are not easy to get a hold of, but if you can it's well worth it. Bravo, Abner.

Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey. My goodness.

A - Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter a hazy golden orange with a big rocky two finger creamy head that leaves an enormous amount of side lacing and a thick clumpy off white blanket.

S - Super amazing aroma here. Malts and delicious hops. Light sweetness followed by inviting hops. Aromas of pine needles, grapefruit rinds, and light citrus. Just a super fresh aroma.

T - So so so delicious. This beer jumps out at you on the first sip. Light malt sweetness swept away by nice bitter pine and grapefruit peel. This stuff is dangerously addicting.

M - Smooth light and creamy. This is incredibly dangerous. Possibly the most deceptive dipa I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. Drinks like a 4%. Nice bitter hop finish.

O - Overall this is a masterfully crafted beer. Seriously amazing stuff. Stellar appearance and delicious in the mouth. Another typical "must drink" from Hill Farmstead.

Very hazy and dark gold in colour, almost a little orange like an apricot.

Citrus and pine on the nose. Notes of sweet orange and tangerine-like flavours, and maybe some mango. Soft caramel malt throughout. The dry hops add amazing floral and somewhat grassy notes as well.

Tastes much like it smells, and goes down very smooth with little bitterness. Hops are more present than they are on the nose. The malt flavour is much more pronounced and lasts through the end, helping polish off much of the bitterness from the hops and disguising the high ABV.

The body is medium to thick, and has decent carbonation. A slight warming feeling going down is really the only indicator of the alcohol content.

I would be interested to see how this would be with slightly more malts. Had about seven people taste this last night - including a friend who drinks beer like Sam and PBR - and he even enjoyed it if that was any testament to how nearly perfect this beer is.

Orange amber pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces fine. Nice hop aroma, not overwhelmingly bitter, but nicely present and complex - citrus, layers of tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, a bit of dank pine and resin, and just hints of pale malts in there. Great flavor as well, balanced hop bitterness, not too much, moreso packed with hop flavor, more citrus, tropical fruits, etc. Hints of pale malts just present and doughy enough to balance it out.

Smell- Fruity as Key West Pride Week. Some much fruit.

Taste- Felt like running my tongue down a fruity pine tree!

Feel- Sitting on the beach with a beautiful woman during the prettiest day, having your favorite drink.

Overall- Abner asked to move in and split the rent. I told him not to worry about the rent money. His company is payment enough.

From growler 1 day old. Beautiful color like all HF beers I have seen. Very approachable for a DIPA, we had 2 non DIPA loving guests over to try who actually enjoyed it. Very well integrated hops and long finish. I would feel comfortable serving this to relative newbies
