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.

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.

Growler filled 13 days ago and we are allready drinking it now on the otherside of the pond! Poured a deep murky orange colour with a Nice white head. Still a lot carbonation. First sweet juicy aroma of orange, Peach, tropical fruits, mango, lot of pine bitterness, citrus, lemon zest, . Bready malts, resin, taste is Nice and fruity upfront lots of juicy with a full pine bitter kick in the end. All combined perfectly! The best part is the mouthfeel in the aftertaste. The hype is for real! This is incredible. Big want i finally got to try!

Tap at Hill Farmstead. Pours a beautiful hazed banana peel yellow with a large white head. Aromas of floral and tropical hops, some alcohol detected in the nose. Bitter but gentle flowers and citrus juice. Wow.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Draft from HF, thanks to Adrian. Superb aroma on this strong IPA. Plenty of bitterness - a touch harsh at first, but once my palate grew accustomed, I was loving it. Full funky floral aroma. A good amount of sweetness also. Some fruit hanging around the edges. Very good indeed.

Growler in trade. Pours a cloudy yellow. white head. Aroma is super piney. Taste is light, piney, with some more hop diversity. Better than the aroma. Would have liked some different hop profile, maybe some citrus, dank, etc. Mouthfeel and body is great, not just my hop style.

Growler shared by beechber224. Nose is super piney and woody. Like a line tar. Very hazy to cloudy. Taste is better and more hoo forward.

Belle couleur dorée avec un col blanc assez résistant. Aromes de fruits tropicaux, comme la peche,mangue,ananas,agrumes, résines, un petit coté épicé, très interessant. L’alcool est plutot bien caché. Une de mes top DIPA!
