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.

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.

[email protected] Well, NYC, USA. Distinctive with sweet and slightly sour nuances of mango and orange. A hint of pine. No malts and medium/light body. Balanced.

Draft. Beautiful peach haze with medium white head. Really nice sweet tropical fruits, citrus, and hints of pine on the nose. Little too sweet and the booze comes through slightly. Really great beer but not my favorite by Hill

Keg at The Farmhouse, Burlington. Cloudy golden, creamy head. Generous pear and passionfruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Leafy with passionfruit, grapefruit and white currant. Really bitter finish. Quite good, but not really exceptional.

Pris Hill Farmstead, bire costaude. Probablement la meilleure double IPA au monde. Rien dautre dire ...

Another very welcome growler shared by Kermis. Poured hazy orange amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of medium sweet citrus and soft malt. Medium body, flavour is light marmalade, lightly zesty, grapefruit and lime. Sweet and dry finish.

Une bire blonde trouble et dore, avec une belle mousse. Le nez est franchement solide, avec du gros houblon rsineux en entre, et beaucoup dagrumes, de fruit de la passion au nez. En bouche, cest tout aussi bon, avec un beau mix damertume bien tranchante, une douceur sucre provenant de lalcool. Du houblon bien frais agrum est galement bien perceptible, ce qui donne un tout fort bien mijot.

Cloudy orange. Starts off with lots of mango and pineapple than transitions to orange juice and pine. I love the transition on the palate. So good. Another home run from ThePatrickMan.

jflopsu (1484) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2016
Pours a cloudy bright orange that fades to yellow with thick white head. A strong citrus hop, floral, pine and tropical fruit aroma. A strong citrus hop bomb taste with floral, pine and light tropical fruit flavors. A lingering sweet citrus and bitter hoo aftertaste. A smooth and balanced flavor.

Pours a bright hazy golden yellow color. The color is simply amazing one of the best looking beers I have seen. The head is medium white. Pretty strong citrus nose, mostly tangerine and grapefruit. Cantaloupes, peaches and other tropical fruits. Full smooth body. It is unlike any other beer I tasted. It is at first pretty sweet and then it the lingering hoppyness its for a first wave, then you get a second lingering dry hops finish. But its not overwhelming it just lasts forever. As a homebrewer I have a hard time understanding how they can make such different waves of flavors. Its so well balanced.

Yields a completely hazed yellow-golden mango pulp color with a fluffy, stable white head. Smells of a very intriguing hop plethora, with just the lightest note of cakey malts, perfectly complimenting to the orange quality of the hops. Also packs lime zest, wet grass a hint of dried blueberries and fresh fallen leaves. Has a fantastic smooth, fuller bodied mouthfeel with a lively finish, never loosing any of its softness on the tongue. While turning remarkably dry, especially during the finish, the beer stays in perfect balance throughout, due to light white bread malts. Shines from the very first moment by its world class mouthfeel, which is incredibly creamy and soft, slowly inviting fruity hops to the palate. Lemon pulp, orange peel and some unripe mango get amped up by a pleasant, adapting onion sharpness and soothing wet grass. Its only indication that this is an 8 abv beer is its doughy malt balance, which gets recognizable by rounding out the hop melange, providing just a hint of sweet maltiness - the beer drinks incredibly easy. Looses its fruitiness during late mid palate, slowly getting replaced by more silkness and an intense, long lasting lemon and leaf dryness, producing a short, earthy ginger peak. Very impressive double ipa, gaining much of its greatness from the incredibly silk mouthfeel, while its perfectly hop composition does the rest. Awesome how this develops on the palate, turns from fruity to herbal to dry - always soothed by soft malts, very well pronounced and clean.
