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.

One of the best DIPA's out there.

In a blind tasting, Abner beat out Pliny the Elder, Dinner, Second Fiddle, Mastermind, and Julius, amongst others.

Clearly one of the top ten, though curiously not even Hill Farmstead's best IPA.
