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.

750ml swing top growler filled on 8/30 best by Sept 6th poured into a shaker pint.

A: Not much of a head just a small soapy wisp. Body is a murky tan and orange.

S: Lots of zest pineapple, grapefruit, light lemon and grass.

T: This beer has tons of juicy fruits pineapple, grass, light cantaloupe, a little honey and lemon.

M: Very juicy slight bit of alcohol body is medium lower carbonation.

O: Another amazing beer from Hill's the juicy hops just pop in this beer and it had none of that disgusting yeasty flavor that a lot of New England style IPAs get.

Growler from Hill Farm, brought back to home, drank the next day.

It pours a yellow hazy liquid with a white head.

Nose is exotic fruits like pineapple, mango, citrus. Juicy mouthfeel, crisp, one of the great Double IPA out there for sure.

Alcohol feeling, not too much just well balanced with everything. Can’t have a doubt who brewed this beauty!
