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.

After a hard day working, this is an amazing treat! Everyone knows how good this stuff is, and I’m equally impressed as everyone! One of HF’s best!

This beer is absolutely amazing. So refined compared to a lot of dipas.
Very complex with a great citrus theme with a lot of tropical undertones and a great malt and yeasty backbone

Had on tap and brought two 750ml growlers home.
A: pours a hazy golden wheat color, carbonation, nice subtle stringy lacing, frothy + 1 finger brilliant white fine bubbly foam head
S: sweet tropical fruit, mango, papaya, citrus, tangerine, malt, fresh grass
M: medium body, smooth on the tongue, juicy, creamy
T: soft and pillowy, tropical fruits, citrus, mango, guava, passionfruit, slight earthy pine resin, hops are present but subtle, very minor bitterness, mineral notes in the finish, I'm going to guess the water is hard (alkaline)
O: solid DIPA, creamy, amazing how the hop fruit flavors are very present yet very minor bitterness,

It's been awhile since I've had this one but I remember a hazy and enjoyable IPA from the NE. I don't think it was as fresh as I would have liked it but I was in Texas and can't complain.
