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.

Poured from a growler that was 3-4 weeks old. Light in color, great hop aroma, and the flavors that came through were incredible. Lots of citrus and floral notes and a very balanced flavor profile.

From a 750 ml growler

Pours a cloudy golden color with 2-3 fingers cloudy head with decent retention and leaving curtains of lace. The nose features hops hops hops with big floral and citrus (grapefruit, orange) notes, very dank and some toasted malts in the there also. On the palate, again massive hops, floral, pine and citrus, dank and coating, some residual malt sweetness for balance. It has a medium body, smooth and refreshing with lots carbonation. Just a fantastic IIPA and dangerously drinkable!
