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.

Where do I begin about this beer. Enjoyed from the brewery in Greensboro.

Aroma is full of pine and citrus. Balanced nicely, without being overpowering.

Taste is perfect. Literally as good as it gets. A blend of lemon, grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruits. I get lots of passion fruit for whatever reason. The mouthful makes it easy to drink an entire growler alone.

As good as a DIPA gets.

Superbly balanced with an excellent blend of citrus and earthy hops. As with most elite IPAs....you enjoy it more and more with each sip and nothing takes a dominant role and the complexity unravels over time. Another fine drinking experience. Hill Farmstead has a collection of beers that will rival anyone in the world.
