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 Abners 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 brewery. Hazy light orange, with foamy white head. Smells like a summer garden, tastes like grapefruit orchard in bloom. Excellent... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is hazy golden with white head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, piney hops, light tropical notes. Taste has a very good balance between citrus, piney hops and just enough malt to hold everything together, light sweetness. Medium body and medium-low carb. Another great DIPA by HF.

Thanks for the taste, Dale! Hazy orange pour, fresh-squeezed OJ to Pushups in hue. Nice healthy head, sticky lacing everywhere. Very inviting nose, youthful and bright. Bracing bitterness but some mango and papaya in there too. Lively mouthfeel, very easy-drinking for a beer of this ABV. Strong malt backing give this one a healthy, robust shape, but its nonetheless all about the hops. Dry, spicy, and herbal in places, what eventually comes across are the big, blooming fruit notes. Very well done.

Friend shared it with me after a while baking under the sun. Poured from a growler, it was clear gold, not hazy at all. Beautiful creamy top off wich you can smell citruses and other tropical fruits. On taste you definitely expect more hops than there is wich is a good surprise. Has a strong body wich I couldnt grasp completely, may need to drink it again someday.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Really enjoyed this one. Growler pour, smaller head, lighter carbonation. somewhat ubdued aroma, tropical fruit and pine. Flavour really hits you - big pine, grapefruit, a bit spicy, catty, strong malt backbone here. Not the palate wrecker I was expecting and Im fairly thankful for that!

Sample at the brewery on 7/6/13. Clear orange pour with a medium off-white head. Nose consisting of malt, pine, grapefruit and sweet orange peel. Malty flavor at the start, turning to onion and pine before a grapefruity finish.

Courtesy of An, totally unexpected and very generous, thanks dude! Poured a hazy gold, good head (from a growler, FYI). Aroma was huge citric, pine, and slightly catty hops. Flavor matched, a touch tropical as well. Just enough malt to back it up. This was outstanding.

Not hugely aromatic but great tasting, loads of spicy pine and strong malt body to back it up

wedgie9 (2679) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Tasted on 7/11/13 from a 32oz growler obtained in a trade. Pours hazy, bright orange with a thick, fluffy white head that slowly recedes to rocky and messy lace. The nose is super fresh with tons of citrus, pine resin, and a hint of tropical fruit, with just enough light bread malt to back everything up. The flavor is almost exactly the same, with the resin, citrus peel, and tropical fruit the focus, and just enough balancing bread malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long super balanced hoppy finish. This is perhaps the most balanced double IPA have had, with every element melding perfectly.

Bottle thanks to adnielsen. So good. Hoppy, citrusy smell, beautiful golden color. Tastes like it smells, only better.
