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.

Look- Cloudy yellow like a Stoner's urine on random drug test day at the office.

Smell- Fruity as Key West Pride Week. Some much fruit.

Taste- Felt like running my tongue down a fruity pine tree!

Feel- Sitting on the beach with a beautiful woman during the prettiest day, having your favorite drink.

Overall- Abner asked to move in and split the rent. I told him not to worry about the rent money. His company is payment enough.
