BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States
hillfarmstead.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

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.

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
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 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.

750 ml Growler
BB: Feb 21 2018

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice cloudy pale yellow/orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice one-finger plus creamy white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach, apricot), nice diesel like. The taste is very nice, hoppy, malty, with a very nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango, peach, apricot), nice diesel like. Medium Body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a very tasty brew. Glad to have gotten a chance to try it. Addictive! Orange Julius! Thanks Kyle!
