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.

Pale and Caramel Malt; Dextrose; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Poured on tap at Worthy Kitchen in Woodstock Vermont into their snifter glasses. 12oz pour.

A= This beer is orange, best way to describe the color. It has a nice level of haziness, still allowing light through. A bit of actively rising carbonation creating a thick pure white head. The lacing is very sticky.

S= I get hoppy pine and earth flavors up front with citrus in the background. The citrus seems mostly grapefruit rind, but pink grapefruit that has a bit of sweetness.

T= Smooth and tasty hop layers, nothing overpowers the other. Pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, some resinous in the background.

M= Medium body with moderate carbonation. Very smooth, a bit syrupy.

O= Nothing that is a noticeable negative. This may be my new favorite from Hill Farmstead (previously Double Citra). Perfect balance of hop flavor, malt backing, and bitterness.

This brew was poured from a refillable 750mL Hill Farmstead bottle, filled at the brewery growler-style, into our Founders snifters. It glows a coppery golden orange, putting up a two finger head of creamy off white bubbles. This shows nice retention, leaving thick honeycombed lacing around our glasses. A definite haze cuts clarity, but no sediment is noted. Carbonation appears to be moderate. The nose is richly citric and resiny of hops, with pale and lightly metallic toast of grain, fresh apricot, pineapple, and nectarine fruitiness, and a floral honeysuckle air blowing across the top of it. With warmth the aromatics really start to flourish, giving enhanced hoppy bite and sweetness of grapefruity, floral, and softly earthy varietals, mineral-laden well water, mud, black pepper booziness, muscat grapes, graham cracker breadiness, fresh mint leaf, blackboard chalk, and fresh peppery vegetals. Our first impression is that the flavoring gives extraordinarily juicy and fruity hops, but with nice balancing bite from the harder water and zing of grain. As we sip, the taste begins with a strong interplay between starkly, but authentically, sweet nectarine, tangerine, and pineapple syrups, and the dominant power of grapefruit rind, hop, and stem. These are met and balanced by a menagerie of raw honey, white grape sweetness, sulfuric mineral, lemon rind, herbal and earthy leafiness, cooling vanillas, lactic creaminess, metallic yeast juiciness, and solidly pale grain. The middle comes to a peak with lemon and grapefruity hops, herbal and spicy malt undertones, ethanol, gravel, mineral water hardness, mango fruitiness, and floral clover sugars. The finish is awash with pale graininess, effectively cutting the hoppy onslaught, along with newspaper inkiness, bright yeastiness, chalk and graphite, shitake meatiness, mango, strawberry, and pineapple fruitiness, and sweet booziness, with more of an herbal hoppiness shining through the ashes of the former grapefruit gods. The aftertaste breathes bitterly of grapefruity rind, seed, and juice, sweetly of nectarine and white sugars, pale grain, ghostly wheat, gravel, distant bubblegum esters, planty sap and resins, bittering moss and musk, light amber maltiness, and sea saltiness. The body is medium to full, and carbonation is medium to high. Each sip gives beautifully soft and creamy slurp, smack, froth, and glug. Finishing pop is nice and long. The mouth is left cooled and wetly coated, with eventually mild tannic astringency across the palate, and moderately robust pucker. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks incredibly well.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its flavoring. While the nose gives a strong, balanced, juicy rendition of the liquid to come, the ultimate taste is astonishing from that first sip. The hops remain dripping wet, sweet, and juicy, but take on a curiously strong bitterness of grapefruity rind and citrics. The yeast works its way in giving bitterness, along with that harder well water that is so apparent, but seamlessly inclusive. The feel on the sip gives just about all you could ask for, with frothy brushes of creaminess and enough pucker to wake you up. This is a must have from Hill Farmstead, and well deserved of the reputation it has thus far attained.

Matthew, I can not thank you enough for this. Not only do you drive all the way to HFS to get me a growler of this, but you also bring it to within 10 miles of my apartment. Thank you.

Pouring a moderately hazy orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention and gorgeous lacing, this is among the nicer DIPA's I've laid eyes on. And the nose! Does it bring to mind Pliny (the Elder) or what?! The nose has such a wonderful Simcoe character, fresh, juicy, tropical fruit along with a beautiful ripe orange character! Ripe apricots, oranges and with some floral characteristics, this smells truly wonderful.The malt character is medium-low, with a little caramel, and some mild bready and cracker-like notes. A little alcohol is noticeable, but never in a detrimental way. One could even argue that the juicy hops almost make some of the fruit character appear candied.

The palate comes close to out-Plinying Pliny. That's not something I would say easily, simply because Elder (IMO) stands apart from almost every other DIPA out there due to the way that it captures both, the delicacy that hops can bring with their power. Abner, in my book, is the only other beer this big that does that. Juicy citrus with a melange of tropical fruit (ripe papayas, ripe mangoes, ripe oranges). A touch sweet on the mid-palate with a blend of citrus juice sweetness (from the hops) and some light caramel malt and honey. Drying on the finish with an exquisite blend of mellow bitterness and ripe, redolent fruit. Bitterness is moderate throughout, in balance with the fruity sweetness that the hops bring. Not particularly resiny either. Medium-light in body, this beer is a little too carbonated (initially at least), and has a wonderful finish. Of particular note is the lack of a green/leafy hop character that many hop-bombs end up having. Absolutely delicious, exceptional stuff, my favorite HFS beer yet.

750 growler into my fave snifter, i can already smell it...

A- really big carbonated head that has superior retention and great lacing. Theres a slight haze to the orange body and above that is foamy white head thats just kind of hanging out. This looks really nice but what else is new from HF.

S- I could smell it once I opened it. Earthy bitterness and citrus zest are the most noticeable along with some sharp citrus scents, nice aroma

T- Nice balance of sweet and bitter hops. Nice sharp bitterness upfront that carries throughout. nice zesty citrus bitterness comes through toward the middle and has a grapefruit-y sweetness. The finish is bitter and lingers. This hits all the areas I want in an (D)IPA

M- probably a medium body but feels much fuller. moderate amount of carbonation fizzes and turns very smooth.

O- This beer is top notch stuff. The taste is pretty close to perfect to me. Mainly bitter with some sweet citrus. It also poured beautifully and was a very enjoyable beer.

750ml growler poured into a snifter.

A: pours a hazy orange with a half inch frothy white head. Fades quickly, but lacing remains sticky, clinging throughout the glass.

S: great, tropical aroma as soon as the growler was opened. Lots of grapefruit and orange come through massively.

T: Citrusy goodness. Follows the nose completely. Lots of orange, mango and grapefruit. Sweet flavor with just the right dry, bitter finish. Extremely refreshing.

M: extremely smooth with medium carbonation. Extremely easy drinking, without the slightest hint of alcohol.

O: as good as any DIPA I've had. I'd go out of my way to trade for that one again

Had this straight from the Hill Farmstead tap and man was it delicious! Orange/amber color, (amazing) mango/citrus smell, slightly boozy and overall just awesome beer. I could throw a few of these back for sure! If you can, definitely make the trip to the brewery in VT as it will be a memorable one. Cheers!

Had this at the "Prohibition Pig" in the wonderful Waterbury, VT. This beer was delicious and definitely on par with the Heady Topper although quite different tasting. The Edward is one of my favorite beers and this tastes almost identical to me only with more body and higher ABV. The aroma was out of this world with lots of pine and citrus. Remarkable smooth and the perfect pairing with the 12 hour smoked brisket and bacon BBQ sauce.

8oz pour into Pinocchio's brandy snifter on 9/15/11. Served generously to me at Pinocchio's in Media, PA (thanks Tim and Dan). Fresh tapped that day.

A: I have seen reviews down the line here that have it much different then what I got. For me, it was a mildly hazy orange color. There was some sediment floating in there, but not much. Good carbonation. Faint white head that dissipated really quickly. There were some alcohol feet seeing as it is 8.2%. Some lacing, but not much.

S: It was probably up there on one of the best smelling DIPAs that I have had. Maybe it was just the freshness factor, I don't know. Tons of fruity hops and pine notes. Delicious. There was some mild breadiness at the back end from the malts though.

T: Flat out delicious tasting beer. Not overly bitter on the front of the tongue. There was a mild bite there. But it gets you in the mid-mouth. All those fruity hop flavors: grapefruit and peach and other citrus. But you also get some piney notes. And those malts are there to SOME WHAT balance out this hop bomb. Very nice finish. Very clean.

M: This is a medium bodied DIPA. With all those hops, there was bound to be some flavors lingering on the tongue for a while.

O: Just a truely exceptional DIPA. Really ranks up there for me....just like with most BAers. I'd love to sample again down there line. Cheers to Tim and Dan.

Poured on tap at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, Mass
A- pour is hazy, yellow color with ridiculously tight-packed bubbles. Wow!
S- I got citrus in the realm of grapefruit, apricot, tangerine.
T- really. Hits you with bitter citrus like orange peel, lemon rind, danky bitterness. Superb!
M- rich and creamy medium-bodied. Soooo good. Finishes nicely, not really dry at all.
O- this is truly a world-class IPA.

Caveat - this is my first Hill Farmstead and drinking after a marathon, so very possible Schlitz would get a world-class rating right now.

This is an unbelievable DIPA. Some interesting things hung on. Initial taste says west coast style - done to perfection, but there is also something softer on the back end -- maybe pear?? Hop bitterness lingers. Aroma begs you to sit down and drink. Well worth the trip into Vermont farmland for this gem. Just hoping my other Hill acquisitions are half as good. In my opinion, earns the world-class hype

Description: Golden color and clear as could be with a white head and lacing. Aroma or citrus, mandarin orange, apple, floral, maybe a bit of pine and something a little earthy. Fruit and apple come through on the taste and bitterness is just enough. The beer is extremely well balanced and leaves a very clean, dry aftertaste that slowly dissipates off the tongue. For an IPA, it's a very full-bodied, 'meaty' beer if not quite velvety.

Suggested food pairing: Salmon (grilled or baked)

If you like this beer then you should also try: Sip of Sunshine

Ideal time to drink this beer: After a day of fly fishing in Vermont you've collected an impressive stringer of salmon, trout and other wild, free-range, organic fish (all fish in Vermont are like this). Since you prize farm-to-table freshness so much, you don't even bother to get home before you clean you fish and immediately place it over a wood campfire that you've built beside the river from wild, free-range, organic wood (all wood in Vermont is like this). To cap it off, you reach into your bag and draw out the wild, free-range, organic growler (all growlers in Vermont are like this) of Abner that you purchased that same day and enjoy it with your catch.

Overall: 4.75 (This beer is excellent and I would definitely drink it again) This is the first beer I've had from Hill Farmstead and it exceeds expectations, which were high to begin with. Complex flavors, perfectly balanced, with just the right amount of bitterness. This is an extremely drinkable beer. Everything about it exudes quality and craftsmanship. HF beers are not easy to get a hold of, but if you can it's well worth it. Bravo, Abner.

Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey. My goodness.

A - Poured into a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter a hazy golden orange with a big rocky two finger creamy head that leaves an enormous amount of side lacing and a thick clumpy off white blanket.

S - Super amazing aroma here. Malts and delicious hops. Light sweetness followed by inviting hops. Aromas of pine needles, grapefruit rinds, and light citrus. Just a super fresh aroma.

T - So so so delicious. This beer jumps out at you on the first sip. Light malt sweetness swept away by nice bitter pine and grapefruit peel. This stuff is dangerously addicting.

M - Smooth light and creamy. This is incredibly dangerous. Possibly the most deceptive dipa I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. Drinks like a 4%. Nice bitter hop finish.

O - Overall this is a masterfully crafted beer. Seriously amazing stuff. Stellar appearance and delicious in the mouth. Another typical "must drink" from Hill Farmstead.

Very hazy and dark gold in colour, almost a little orange like an apricot.

Citrus and pine on the nose. Notes of sweet orange and tangerine-like flavours, and maybe some mango. Soft caramel malt throughout. The combo of hops adds amazing floral and piney notes as well.

Tastes much like it smells, and goes down very smooth with little bitterness. Hops are more present than they are on the nose. The malt flavour is much more pronounced on the finish with notes of toast and caramelized bread crust.

The body is medium to thick, and has decent carbonation. A slight warming feeling going down is really the only indicator of the alcohol content.

Orange amber pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and laces fine. Nice hop aroma, not overwhelmingly bitter, but nicely present and complex - citrus, layers of tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, a bit of dank pine and resin, and just hints of pale malts in there. Great flavor as well, balanced hop bitterness, not too much, moreso packed with hop flavor, more citrus, tropical fruits, etc. Hints of pale malts just present and doughy enough to balance it out.

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.

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

Drank from a 750 ml swing top growler purchased at the Hill Farmstead Brewery, Greensboro, VT
Served in a Hill Farmstead Brewery stemmed glass

The beer poured a cloudy, glowing peachy-amber color with a soapy looking, bright white head that quickly dissipated. Small droplets and thin streaks of spotty lacing trickled along the glass.

The nose was simply mesmerizing. Super hoppy with loads of sweet, smooth fruitiness. Peaches and apricots came through strongest. Lots of juicy tangerine, mango, papaya and passionfruit as well. I have never before experienced such a cornucopia of exotic fruit notes in a beer's aroma.

Strong, fruity hop flavors carried through into the taste as well. Sweet tangerines dominated. Peach and apricot notes were quite prevalent as well. Although I would assume that this beer benefited from a moderate dosage of caramel malts, its pleasant sweetness seemed to have emerged from the diverse hop profile rather than from residual malt sugars. The beer finished quite pithy and dry with a moderate, grapefruit rind-like bitterness. At 8.2% ABV, this beer masked its alcohol prowess quite well.

The mouthfeel may have been the only letdown with this beer. The body was a bit light for the style. A very fine and mild effervescence helped the liquid glide across my tongue. Somewhat creamy, fluffy and smooth.

In their short existance, the Hill Farmstead Brewery has seemed to master the art of creating hoppy beers, and this example is proof of that. Outstanding work. I cannot wait to see what comes next.

Thanks to whoever shared this one at Churchill's Finest release

Look: Pours a orangish yellow color with more orange than yellow. With a 1/4 white head and good retention and some spotty lace

Smell: Very bright tropical fruit nose lots of grapefruit and pineapple and some citrus in the background

Taste: Like the nose the beer is full of tropical fruits which reminds me of Kern Citra. Lots of mango pineapple and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Medium body medium carbonation and just a touch dry

Overall: I would say this is in my top 3 favorite DIPA's I would say this is slightly behind Kern Citra and Heady Topper. Great beers

What a pleasant suprise from jammalamma, who just kind of sent me this growler. Really appreciate it, Ben! It was filled on May 28th so it was around 9 days old. Really, really cool looking growler, too. Split last night with the La Crosse crew after a great day of mountain biking.

A - A rich, golden amber with a nice creamy white head. Really nice and splotchy lacing along the sides. Beautiful webbed clouds in the center. A nice looking brews.

S - Boom! Citrus, piney hops! Grapefruit, pineapple, large amounts of orange peel. Mango, papaya and star fruit. Dank basement bitterness.

T - Really bitter with a nice citrus backbone. Orange, lemon, pineapple, melon hops. Just a tiny bit malty, but overall really awesome!

M - Citrus tingle with a bitter, drying effect. Really smooth with a nice amount of carbonation.

O - Really, really impressed with this one! Its like Masala Mama meets Pliny, and then they go over to their cousin Abrasive's house for dinner. Really well balanced, smells great and tastes even better. Home run for Hill Farmstead! Looking forward to more of their offerings in the future. Thanks again Ben for this mighty treat!

Had multiple places in Montpelier. And have had it in multiple growlers. I'd bathe in this beer.

A- Just beautiful straw amber with some wonderful lacing.

S - An intense combination of citrusy fruit and pine and freshness.

T - This is what a double IPA should taste like. Absolutely perfect balance between hops and the slight malt backbone. Fantastic.

M - Great carbonation and the right malt to put this IPA above almost ever DIPA I've ever had.

O - Get this beer. Get it in any way possible. Fresh out of the tap will chance your life. Shaun just kills this beer. He does hoppy beer better than anyone out there.

My main man from Philly procured me a growler of this fine brew because I'm pretty sure he has a man crush on me. This will be my first brew from Hill Farmstead but I've heard great things! Drank from my Ithaca nonic pint glass.

Appearance- Pours a hazy orange yellowish with a decent half finger bright white head that looks thick and creamy. A decent cap and thick collar remains with a bit of random lacing strewn about.
Smell- Loads of juicy grapefruit seem to burst out of the glass along with a touch of sweet orange peel. Not particularly 'bitter' smelling as the fruitiness has a sort of sweet maltiness behind it. A touch of pine and some earthy grass but that grapefruit is all I can seem to smell. As it warms a touch of butterscotch and a light whiff of alcohol show.
Taste- Holy grapefruit Batman!! It's like someone sprinkled a little sugar on a grapefruit, squeezed it and poured it into my glass. Perhaps a touch of peach mixed in for good measure but the grapefruit is absurd!! It's got the lightest touch of sweetness behind all that fruitiness yet still finishes light and dry. A long linger of grapefruit and orange zest lingers.
Mouthfeel- Medium body with a nice crisp bite of carbonation and an oily dry finish.
Drinkability- Really tasty brewski here. I've tried a lot of IPA's over the years and I love when I get to try something a bit different than all the rest and it still manages to be really good. Not sure what the hop profile of this beer is but it reminds me of Kern River Citra and some of those Troegs Scratch IPA's - except good. Very enjoyable, thanks much Jeff!!

Was finally able to try one of my white whales....this beer has eluded me at every turn for the last 18 months...every time it released I tried multiple times to get it and was not able to....FINALLY landed a 64 oz growler and drank it with a friend, poured into a tulip and right away you notice a really nice orange hue in the beer which is cool. As you drink there is tons of lacing present on the glass. Nice well balanced citrus hops character and smell. Overall an amazing beer!
