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.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 thank you thomas for picking me up a growler, i know this is your favorite. its a truly beautiful beer, light orange with pinkish hue reminiscent of grapefruit juice. smell is pine and citrus. sour (diesel) scent which is hilarious, to me at least.......... This tastes so so good... very dry on the palate with an intense rush of hops. The citrus in the nose follows through to the back of my tongue. slightly bitter after taste. Overall another top notch brew from HF

Backlog rating. Growler at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. Leighton you’re the man! It pours a ripe apricot color with large fluffy white head. Aroma is juicy fruity hops, with notes of tropical fruit salad, cedar wood, dank, grass, citrus. Taste is similarly, bold, juicy, intense and fruity, yet never too sweet. More notes of damp, weed, citrus peel grapefrut mango and lychee. Medium to full bodied with good carboation. Overall, truly delicious, plays on a different league

From 0.75 l growler in tulip. Pours a cloudy orange with a perfect off white head. Huge flowery nose with tropical fruits. Mango and passion fruit. Lots of pine notes too. Taste is full bodied with a burst of citrus and pine hops. Grain, caramel and dough notes perfectly balance the hop bitterness kicking in towards the end. It has this unique Hill Farmstead barnyard touch too. Could drink it every day! Silky moutfeel! Perfect DIPA!

P: Hazy murky orange/yellow with a very thin white head. S: Rich citrus, apricots, lemons, mango and light alcohol. T: Pineapples, apricots, mango, pine grains in the back, caramel malts with just a little bit of alcohol in the back. M: Medium body, soft carbonation with almost no bitterness. O: Not bad, which the alcohol was hidden better but it is still hoppy and well done.

RasmusOtt (1257) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2014
Tap @ MIkkeller & Friends. Pours copper amber with a white head. Aroma is DIPA hop forward with lots of tropical notes. I get lots of mandarin, orange, grapefruit, peach and some pine. Also a decent malty backbone. Smells pretty bold and has some nice deep DIPA nuances. Taste is fresh hop forward with lots of ripe peach, orange, weak resin, mandarin, weak caramel malts and a slight minty note to it as well. Almost everything you want from a double IPA. Really pleasing and amazing!
