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.

From growler 1 day old. Beautiful color like all HF beers I have seen. Very approachable for a DIPA, we had 2 non DIPA loving guests over to try who actually enjoyed it. Very well integrated hops and long finish. I would feel comfortable serving this to relative newbies

This double India pale ale is fruity, hoppy and clean. Pours a hazy orange, and is the perfect example of the New England style India pale ale... Hill farmstead had another great beer here.
