Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

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.

Huge juicy aroma. Initial passion fruit sweetness followed by bitter grapefruit. Smooth pine finish.

Oh Abner -- one of my all-time all-time favorites. Gorgeous golden color with just a bit of charming haze. Big hop aroma sings a prelude to the piney citrusy love affair that follows to the tongue. Everything about this beer flirts with blissful perfection.
