Hill Farmstead Brewery

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.

Pale and Caramel Malt; Dextrose; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Reviewed from notes. Shared a 750ml swing-top growler with some friends this weekend. It poured somewhat hazy with a nice looking light orange color to it. It had a thin, white, bubbly head to it that mostly stuck to the edges of the glass.

The aroma had a lot of juiciness to it. I got a big grapefruit citrus presence mixing with some notes of orange, peach and pineapple. It had a fantastic aroma overall to it, I love the bright and juicy hoppy flavors.

The taste has more of the juicy, fruity flavors coming out up front with some of the peach and pineapple notes to it. In the finish I get more bitter citrus, grapefruit and pine flavors to it. It had a very nice range of hoppy flavors to it and really balanced the juicy, tropical fruit notes and the bitter grapefruit notes well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Overall I thought it was a great beer. It had a very good range of hoppiness to it with some juicy, fruity, Citra hop like notes at times and some piny, resiny grapefruit flavors in the finish. Very drinkable and flavorful beer of the style.

Growler courtesy of a friend. I owe him big! Poured into some Hill Farmstead Stemware. This beer has a nice murky orange hue. There is a slight head to the pour and some minimal lacing. The smell is of sweet and bitter citrus. The taste starts off with some swwet hoppiness, think orange and pineapple and finishes up with some bitter lemon zest that lingers nicely. You want to repeat this all day! The carbonation is spot on and this beer is easily drinkable. Happy to have tried this!

On-tap 8/1/2015 at Armsby Abbey, in Worcester, MA served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large dense off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus (most grapefruit), caramelized malts and floral hops.

T: Everything comes out at you all at once with this beer… the bitter hoppiness, the citrus sweetness and the hearty maltiness. I have had a great number of IPA’s & 2IPA’s over the years and have not experienced one where it happens as much as it does with this beer. There is also a very good balance especially considering the strength of flavors. Everything is strong but nothing is over-powering. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is very clean for the style.

O: Very tasty, goes down extremely easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent 2IPA to pound down for as long as you can handle it.

I picked up a growler of Abner on the way up to Jay Peak.

Poured into a tulip glass, the appearance is a honey tone with a finger of head. The nose on this DIPA has oranges, hops, sugar, a bit of lemon. Moving on to tipping it back and I taste pineapple, grass, bread malts, a general low-key sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium, near-perfect carbonation level on this. All in all, another very good-great DIPA from Hill Farmstead.

Pours a beautiful bright orange with thin white head. Strong aroma of citrus fruit with sweet floral notes and a slight yeasty quality. Flavor of white grapefruit, grass and mango. Wonderfully medium bodied with light carbonation. Very fine bubbles give it a smooth mouthfeel leading to a crisp finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste. No doubt a world class beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I tried this from the growler chilled in a Hill Farmstead Goblet shared with abru17

The color is a golden shade of amber with slight haze and voluminous white head with very fine bead and waves of lace stick. The smell has a strong citrus/tropical hop aroma with slight dank quality and mild pine with herbal odor and mild alcohol scent with mild floral quality. The feel has lost of hop in the textur but moderate bitter up front with resinous oily texture and mild malt sweetness with slight alcohol warming as it increases in temperature and very dry bitter finish.

The taste has a slight pine element with high alpha hopping apparent in that there is dank herbal tropical fruit and slight citrus zest with hint of floral esters. The malt is there mid palate with only a mild amount of sweetness to support and subtle mango with pine in the residual taste with a mild pineapple-like quality which carries that dank hop taste after the swallow. This is a great Imperial Pale ale, loverly blend of Simcoe taste with a great blend of hops to provide lush aroma and low bitterness yet a ton of hop flavor which makes a great Imperial IPA to me

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

A - cloudy pale golden in color like a hazy sun on a hot day. 3 fingers worth of pearly white foam bubbles up quickly.

S - nose is earthy/herbal and juicy/fruity. Freshly juiced oranges. Tangerines. Grapefruit. Sticky pine needles. Freshly Pollenated flowers.

T - if i had to sum it up in one word. Grapefruit juice. But since i can expand... Crisp and cracker-y malt profile. Grapefruit rind dominates. Lemon zest. Green leafy herbs. Lots of pine. More tropical fruits on the backend. Tangerine with a touch of guava.

M - lighter side of medium bodied. Texture is smooth yet watery. Very resinous on the palate. To be objective a bit astringent but i did not find it to be detracting.

O - an exemplary double ipa. A massive hop bomb yet it just calls to be quaffed dispite its high alcohol content.

Cloudy pale orage color with decent white head that laces a bit. Aroma on this thing is killer! Smelled it once and started giggling it made me so happy, orange and ruby red grapefruit juice with hints of pine. Flavorwise, it's everything the nose leads with plus an added strong earthy hop punch. The earthiness starts to come out in the nose at it warms as well. It can be described as a bit garlicy. I get a bit of that sauteed onion and garlic with fresh herbs type of impression right after the initial citrus juice impression, but it fades on the finish. Super smooth bitterness here, very drinkable 8% IPA!

On-tap at the brewery 7/13/11. Served in a white wine glass.

A: The brew appears a golden to amber color with a bit of hop induced haziness. There was a massive two finger head that was built like a house, great retention and excellent lacing.

S: On the first whiff with I was blown away with the overwhelming scents of tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, papaya, and pineapple. The hops are really dominant, but the taosted malt manages to sneak in as it warms.

T: The taste is very similar to the nose with an overwhelming wave of the tropics, quite the hop bomb. There is a bit of toasted bread that surfaces in the finish, but it is very subtle. Nice and dry with another dose of hops on the finish as well.

M: Medium bodied with great carbonation. The bubbles give the beer a much bigger mouthfeel than I would have expected.

O: This brewery never ceases to amaze with its' hop forward offerings. Another great beer.

On tap at the Farmhouse in Burlington, enjoyed back to back with Lawson’s Double Sunshine. Geez there are some phenomenal hoppy beers coming out of Vermont these days. While I may have preferred the Lawson’s by a small margin, this is as good as the style gets; it’s simply a matter of hop profile and overall taste you prefer or are in the mood for at any particular moment. It would be hard to say Pliny or Heady Topper or Abrasive are better; just a bit different.

Abner pours a glowing hazy orange color with a two finger white head that settles slowly. Nice lacing remains and the overall look is quite appealing (and appetizing). Vividly hoppy aroma, led by general citrus and more specifically, orange and lemon (to a lesser degree). Some piney notes emerge late and little in the way of malt is detected.

The flavor is very well balanced and by that I don’t mean between hops and malt, because the latter is very much restrained in the west coast style and just barely makes an appearance as a bit of sugared sweetness underneath. I instead meant that the hop subtleties and bitterness are each evident while the booze isn’t at all. There’s good bitterness, particularly in the finish, which is fairly dry, but it isn’t so assertive that it outshines all that citrus fruit, floral and pine notes, and spicy, peppery highlights. I get a lot of orange, grapefruit, mango, and lemon. It drinks incredibly easily and feels much lighter than the ABV and style generally does.

Medium bodied, perhaps a little on the light side for an imperial IPA, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Exceptionally well done.

even with a week-old growler fill a nicely-sized pure white head raises from the cloudy golden/straw colored beer. it slowly recedes and leaves chunks and chunks of lacing behind.

very aromatic. very hoppy. pine, citrus, zest, some floral/herbal and peppery aromas in there as well. a nice mixture of very aromatic hops drown out any semblance of a malt backbone, though I wasn't expecting much of one anyways.

hops again out front and in-your-face. herbal/peppery hops are more present than in the aroma and contribute a contrast to the huge bitter and zesty citrus flavors. huge tropical fruitiness comes in bringing a bunch of mango and pineapple and some flavors of sweetened dried tropical fruits like those found in some trail mixes due to a slight malt sweetness.

medium bodied with a lot of prickly carbonation and a slightly resiny finish with a touch of booze warmth and a long-lingering bitterness.

Another VT DIPA that would put many west coast beers to shame. a great and unique blend of hop flavors/aromas attack your palate and do not let go, even after you finish.

MANY THANKS to millerbuffoon for getting this growler through a trade!!!

A - Pours a hazy medium orange color with a thick, even layer of creamy foam that sticks to the sides of my tulip like a viscous, sticky glue. Very active carbonation coming from the full perimeter of the glass in a very active cascade of tight, tiny bubbles.

S - Sniffing from the growler, it smells absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! As it sat in my tulip glass for (5) minutes, the aroma was 1/3 of what it previously was, it didn't hold up well. Spicy tropical fruit basket and a sweet bready malt character.

T - It doesn't get much better than this. HUGE tropical fruit basket aroma that's ozzing with oranges, pineapples, grapefruit, and a sweet tang up front with the sweet malt carrying a steady presence until the very end when it morphs into a grapefruit rind bitter finish with a little bit of spice.

M - Smooth, silky, medium body.

O - An outstanding DIPA/Imperial IPA and one of the finest I've ever had!!!

750ml growler poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass.

A~ hazy, glowing orange with a slight white head and lots of lacing. also a good amount of sediment, not as bad as heady though haha.

S~ sooo much citrus, and pineapple. a little bit of earthy pine and a little hay funk.

T~ like the nose, lots of citrus hop bitterness. lots of grapefruit and pine. the hay funk comes in on the end along with a lot of bitterness.

M~ very smooth and dry on the finish.

O~ definitely a great IPA, i love how their saison style comes through a little bit on this one. i could drink this every day when i'm in a hoppy mode, recommended for sure!

What is this wizardry?! This is one of the most interesting IIPA's I've had. While it is not my favorite, the experience of this beer is singular and well worth the legwork to get it. This is way more than a tick on the top 250, this is something special.

growler into tulip.

A: slightly hazed orange. deep at the center. head is on the boarder of being bright white. good retention, even better lacing.

S: a mild black pepper. sticky nose. a lot of hop oil and resins. smells like American hop pellets, in a good way. pineapple. maybe some kiwi. pleasant and inviting.

T: there is a definite cereal flavor right in the middle of the this drink. mmmm, cereal. starts more citrus than anything. hoppy, resiny, but not overly sticky or in-your-face. really appreciate the balance.

M: carb is frizzy, almost mellow. full bodied.

D: dangerously drinkable. great hop nose, great hop flavor, even better balance. glad the malt has a say in this fight. worth seeking.

On tap at Armsby Abbey. Served out of a Hill Farmstead snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Served with a 1 finger fluffy white head with very good retention. Beer is cloudy, dull yellow. Stringy lace that really sticks around. Clarity hurts a bit but this is still a great looking beer.

Nose is citrus, pine, tree sap, papaya. Very pulpy and aromatic. Real dank hoppiness resides in this one. Par for the course for Hill Farmstead beers... that is, amazing!

Bitter pine, tropical fruit, dank hop bitterness and pulp. Nice malt body lingers in the back with a sappy finish. Pine hop bitter aftertaste. Great complexity and balance here.

Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Prickly in the mouth and smooth and quenching going down. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. Can't believe this is 8.2%. Drinks like its 5% or lower.

Shaun Hill may be the king of hoppy beers and he proves it yet again with this creation. An amazing beer worth moving high and hell water to try!

750mL swingtop growler poured into a snifter.

Pours a pale orange colour with a finger of fluffy white head leaving only a slight smackling of lacy bubbles. There's a tinge of cat piss in the aroma, citrus and tropical fruits and some pine notes. Fairly intense bitterness, citrus and pine resins, and flowers. Crisp, medium body clean finish.

Can't argue with this great hoppy beer!

I had this on-tap at Teresa's next door.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy yellow amber color with a finger of white head. Leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smell: Loads of hops. Pine and fruit notes, some sweet citrus fruit.

Taste: Very bitter but still smooth. The hops remind me of pine and citrus peel. Sweet and fruity background. Just a great tasting beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with smooth carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: The hop profile is amazing, just loving the pine notes. The finish was tasty and the beer sticks with you. Really good.

750 ml growler. Pour provided by Mista at Darkness Day. Thanks a lot man!

A- Pours a slightly hazy orange with a one finger head that dissipates quickly leaving minimal lacing.

S- Pungent, fresh citrus and tropical fruits with notes of white grapefruit, lemon rind, blood orange, pineapple and mango followed by some floral hops, caramel malt and pine needles.

T- Follows the nose with plenty of juicy fresh fruit with grapefruit, lemon rind, pineapple, mango as well as floral hops, pine needles and caramel malt.

M- Light carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel.

O- Just another superb IPA from Hill Farmstead. Dangerously drinkable and well balanced, Hill Farmstead is setting the standard for a world class IPA.

From 750mL swingtop growler to snifter on 11/13/11 at a small tasting with friends
*From notes

-- Many thanks to Bill for sharing such a wonderful treasure! --

A: It looks a bit like a saison, as it's a rather cloudy golden amber. It's just gorgeous. A generous pour yields little head and no lacing.

S: My God this is wonderful. Tropical pineapple and juicy fruit explode out of the snifter and attack my nose with vigor. Just incredible.

T: Liquid mango/pineapple. Really top notch stuff here. The fruit forward nature of the beer isn't out of whack, as there is a touch of firm, sturdy malt to round out the finish.

M: The only real cavet of the brew is the feel. I realize it's a growler, so I'll cut this some slack. But it's generally a bit thin. There's not enough carbonation to carry the massive amount of flavor packed into this DIPA.

O: What a sensational beer. Hill Farmstead hasn't dissapointed with Abner, which in my humble opinion, was leaps and bounds better then their more prestigious Ephraim. When seeking out one of their hoppier brews, make sure you really take your time in considering this, as it's phenominal stuff.

A- Cloudy and hazy with a golden brown color to it. A one finger head that leaves great lacing down the sides of the glass. Beautiful.

S- Sweet, tropical fruit hop aromas that carry over beautifully into the taste. Mango, guava blossoms, etc.

T- The taste is more of what's found in the nose. The complex sweet tropical fruit is the most noticeable characteristic, with just enough bitterness. Complex and delightful.

M- Incredibly smooth with little carbonation. Very nice.

O-I really loved this beer. The second or third time I've had it, and I seem to enjoy it more each time. Tied with the Double Citra as my favorite Hill Farmstead brew, and definitely one of the top DIPA's I've had.

Poured from 1.5L swingtop growler (less than 5 day old) into a tulip glass. Huge thanks to a fellow BeerAdvocate for going to the HF release party to pick up a growler for me. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head that lasts very nicely throughout. Wow! The aroma reminds me of the Ephraim, I pick up some mango, tangerine, pineapple, and some grass. The flavor sure reminds me of the Ephraim as the aroma clearly suggested at the beginning. Sweet pines, some lemon, mango, and pineapple are detected across the tongue as well. Thin and smooth mouthfeel with excellent carbonation. This is a very dangerously drinkable DIPA from Hill Farmstead. Glad to have tried this one out!

Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Hazy dark gold. Head is bright-white and fluffy to start. Tiny wisp of a cap with a small collar. Some splotches of lacing. Moderate carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Stone fruit. Very vague notions of tangerine and grapefruit. Loaded with mango and peach and some pineapple. Slightly bitter pine needle. Juicy fruit. Malts are typically light and bready. Touches of pale malt sweetness with honeyed biscuits and some undercooked white bread. Slightly caramelized malt sugars. Deeply floral with some hints of hibiscus. Pine sap and some raw honey. Big and bold without being too aggressive.

Taste: Follows the nose closely with a touch more bitterness. Tons of stone fruit - mango, peach, and something like papaya. Tangerine with some touches of grapefruit and orange rind. Oily resin. Tons of floral elements. Fresh flowers, dried almost hibiscus. Bitter pith. Malts are lightly sweet with a combination of pale malts - offering bready elements and a touch of raw biscuit dough - and some slightly sweeter caramel malt. Bready. Bitter pine needle.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a moderate carbonation. Initial sip is slightly slick. What I want to see out of the style. A little sticky.

Overall: We can be friends.

A nice Imperial IPA. It's big but balanced and carries that drinkable quality every Hill Farmstead IPA has.

On tap at Blackback in Waterbury. From notes.

A - Poured cloudy dark orange with one finger of white head. Good spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - Really juicy. Mango, tangerine, pineapple. Lot's of sweet juicy fruits. Really inviting sweet hops. Spent lot's of time on the aroma of this and didn't wanna stop smelling.

T - Some boozy pineapple and lot's of sweet tropical fruits. Bright hops again. Mango, passionfruit.

M - Pretty strong bitterness, strong carbonation, medium body.

O/D - I enjoyed this quite a bit. Tons of hop depth. Really nice to sip and contemplate. Hops really shine well. I can't tell if I could drink a ton of this, but it was definitely a pleasure.

From 12/16/12 notes. Huge, huge thanks to WhereTheWildBeersGo for this one; thanks Joey! Big want of mine for a while but always missed out on it. Poured from a 750ml swing top growler; filled less than 48 hours earlier.

a - Pours a murky orange-yellow color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty good.

s - Nose has that awesome Hill Farmstead hoppy nose to it. Smells of pine hops, oranges, tangerines, citrus hops, grapefruit, yeast, floral hops, some earthy notes. Loads of hops; very nice nose.

t - Tastes of pine hops, resin, citrus hops, grapefruit, floral hops, fruity malts, oranges. At first I didn't find any bitterness at all to it, and the more I drank it I felt a tiny bit of light bitterness, but much less than something like Ephraim. Very nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Body has some light bitterness but not much. Very nice.

o - Overall another awesome beer from HF and a great DIPA. Up there with their best beers and on par with something like Ephraim IMO, though I still prefer their Society & Solitude #4 and #5. Super hoppy and not a lot of bitterness, would love to have this one again sometime.
