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.

Draft at lord hobo , #3900. This is amazing, lemon straw colored pour, slightly cloudy. Big citrusy bitterness, lemon zest and pity, good amount of grapefruit. Amazingly bitter and balanced. This brewery just keeps one upping itself. Wow

750 ml swing top. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight orange tint capped by a small white head. The aroma is tangy citrus, fresh pine, some catty notes, floral hops and some herbal notes as well. I am intrigued and ready for the first taste. The flavor does show some caramel and toasted malt, but make no mistake, this is about the hops. Tangy citrus, orange and tangerine, fresh pine, catty, and herbal. This had great balance for the complexity it demonstrated.

[4914-20121102] 750mL bottle. Sweaty citrus pine needle aroma. Hazy, light orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter fruity citrus pine flavour has a lovely sweet orange note throughout. Medium-full body is quite bitter. Delicious, great balance. (9/4/8/4/17) 4.2

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 750ml, FRESH growler courtesy of a great trader on BA. pours a hazy, yet bright as the sun, tangerine color capped by a creamy, effervescent white head that leaves webbed sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is incredible with huge floral notes of rose, hibiscus, honeysuckle, and tulip backed by pink grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon peel citrus notes with hints of mango, nectarine, and rich pine esters as it opens up. flavor is wonderful as well with a juicy blast of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, and apricot up front that is followed by bitter grass, piney hops, fresh cut herbs, and floral esters with just a hint of honey and toasted caramel malt adding a balance of sweetness. palate is medium bodied with brisk carbonation and has a beautiful juxtaposition of a fruity, juicy mouthfeel up front with the dry, bitter, herbal finish. overall, one of the best DIPA’s i’ve ever tasted. world class.

My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp. Pours a murky yellow-gold with a small bubbly off-white head. Aroma is very catty along with a good amount of citrus hops, citrus fruit and light herbs & spices. Flavour: Whoa that’s bitter! Very catty, resiny and citrusy along with some malty sweetness. Medium bodied. Another great DIPA from these guys!

Hazy blonde with huge frothy white head. Beautiful. Intense fruit salad on thenose with a zesty grapefruity touch. Medium to full body, pretty carbonated, fruit salad again, pineapples, pear, citrus, tropical fruits. Gets a little sweet by the end of the glass tough wich does’nt help drinkability. But the flavors are outstanding.

Poured from a 750 ml Swingtop thanks to lukaduke! You rock, man. Pours a hazy pale copper color with a velvety white head of foam. Nice rings of lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma has that simcoe and columbus dank, resinous, herbal quality, while maintaining a sweetness that I just love. This beer smells awesome. The first sip is so smooth with it’s bitterness and sweetness playing so well together, making this beer damn near perfect. For my first Hill Farmstead experience, it could not have gone any better.

Aroma: lots of citrus - grapefruit, orange, and tangerine, as well as some melon and resin. Very floral and aromatic, hops just jump out of the glass. Pours a hazy golden color, white head with good retention and nice lacing. Flavor follows the aroma - lots of citrus and tropical fruit, some melon and tangerine, a touch of pine, nice light malt character with a bit of background sweetness, crisp bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, smooth texture. Another amazing HF hop bomb.
