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.

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.

Growler courtesy of my Hill Farmstead pusher - Leighton! Cheers Ears! Hazy amber - gold beer with a tidy off white head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild minerals. A little creamy malt. Really nice hops, tastes like Cascade (but I see has everything but!). Light floral notes and tangerine and lemon bring up the rear. All comes together very well indeed. Finishes light and crisp. Very nice!

Growler shared at Sander’s place, NYC on an evening where we drank way too much beer - but a lot of it was HF, so it was good. This beer pours a lightly cloudy, rich gold with a frothy white head. Tons of sweet-smelling, juicy orange in the aroma. Big sweet flavor with honey and pale malts, hints of alcohol, grapefruit, orange, papaya. Full bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Super sticky, resinous finish with lots of juicy pine, ripe citrus, big pectin, honey, fructose, tons of tropical fruits. This drinks like a dream. Delicious.

Cloudy blond color, large head. The aroma is dank and with a strong manure component. Lean body, on the dry side, a bit chalky mouthfeel, but the hopping is zesty, citrusy, piney, and some manure. Astringent final.
A bit dirty, but excellent.
