Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

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.

A: hazy and yellow hue. Dense foamy head that linger for awhile.

S: citrus, pine and tropical notes; as u expect from any solid DIPA.

T: Solid grapefruit and lemon bitterness with playful pine mixed in.

M: Medium carbonation. Nicely dry and crisp. Really drinkable and ETOH is hidden.

O: Reviewed from prior tasting notes of mid march. First time at Black back pub in Waterbury; now always one eye open. Cheers to a dope DIPA.
