COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abner: Imperial IPA brewed with a plethora of hops.
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.

Growler from Hill Farm, brought back to home, drank the next day. It pours a yellow hazy liquid with a white head. Nose is exotic fruits like pineapple, mango, citrus. Juicy mouthfeel, crisp, one of the great Double IPA out there for sure. Alcohol feeling, not too much just well balanced with everything. Can’t have a doubt who brewed this beauty!

Growler shared. Very cloudy bright golden with good sized white head. Looks great! Lots of peach and apricot, dank weeds, fresh pineapple, orange, quite grassy, light minerals. Sweet malts and light bread with light alcohol. Medium sweet and quite bitter. Over medium bodied. Quite nice. Amazing aroma but slightly harsh in the taste.

Growler shared. Hazy golden pour with a nice white head. Notes of cranberries, quite some fresh pineapple, mango, papaya, alcohol, light caramel. Lingering bitterness and a bit of alcohol spiciness in the finish. Juicy mouthfeel. Very nice!

Keg at Hops Hill - Brooklyn. Pours a hazy mid golden orange with a thin frothy head. Judging by photo evidence this has gotten quite a bit hazier than the first time I had it three years ago. Aroma is orange, cut grass, various C hops. Sweet honey’ish flavor. More bitterness than is currently in vogue for a DIPA. Malt profile is very clean. Quite dry for the style. Booze is there but still perfectly integrated. Great stuff.

750ml growler @ Alex’s. Pours a very clouded golden yellow colour with a small white head. Nose is quite dank. Flavour is very pithy, quite bitter, and that’s it. Running out of battery power atm, so can’t be more detailed.
