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.

Samact (35) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2016
Une robe brouillée superbe comme toutes les IPA de Hill Farmstead. Le nez est rempli de fruits tropicaux, d’orange et d’un côté floral tout à fait inspirant. Des notes d’ananas, d’orange, de cantaloup, de melon miel et de fruits de la passion. Une finale composée d’une touche sucrés et d’amertume franche mais pas du tout envahissante. Une douceur en bouche et des saveurs si rafraîchissantes.

MotherBrother (894) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2016
Shout out to Magneto aka Klimaet.. Pour a hazy bright orange, with a small and white head. Aroma is pretty darn delicious, with hops juice all over the place.. Grass, slight floral, plenty and plenty of citrus fruits and orange peel, faint hints of a malty and backbone.. Taste is pretty darn bitter and dry, but very well balanced. Fizzy carbonation with a rather full bodied, that suits this beer perfectly. Why doesn’t all imported IIpas taste is thise when arriving to Europe? This is gewd.

Muled growler thanks to nathan. Pours cloudy orangy yellow with a big, White head. Aroma is super fruity, juicy, lots of peach, pineapple, mango, sweet orange, pine, grass, mosaic and amarillo. Light onion, light pale malty sweetness. Taste is super crisp, light malty sweetness, light fruity acidity, great balance, long, grassy bitterness. Pretty High carb for a 1 week old growler, and a crisp, oily body! Good stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, orange and mango. Taste of spruce, mango, grapefruit. A bit too bitter and not as soft as other Hill Farmstead, and more lackluster.
