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 imperial pale ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Abner’s well. It is unfiltered and double dry hopped.

Can at home. Hazy yellow color, white head. Smell and taste malts, green grass. Freshly cut grass, towards citrusy, though not quite citrus-ish. Hoppy. Nice. Solid beer though a little thin.

Growler thanks to Pweencess of Hetti-hetti fam aka Nathan Gelfant. Thanks brother. Pours a hazy shiny light orange with a medium white head. Aromas of straight up fresh mosaic hops, dank bitterness, stone fruits, light resin, citrussy, grassy. Taste is fruity, fresh hoppy, pineapple, stone fruits, earthy notes, slight tad of orange peel, lemon zest, grassy notes, tangerine. Amazing IIPA!

Draught @ City Hops (10/2/19). Extremely hazy rich yellow-orange with small foamy whitish head, faint citrus aroma, low carbonation, medium bitter citrus-mango-pineapple taste, faint alcohol undertones, smooth thin body, long medium bitter finish. Very well covered ABV, smooth and tasty.

Growler kindly shared by Maakun at kermis’. Thanks! Hazy golden with white head. Sweet malts, big juicy exotic fruit, pineapple, passionfruit, grassy and big big floral notes, mango, weed, grilled onions popping up later. Big sweet and bitter. Over medium body, smooth and juicy and dank weed. Proper alcoholic boost, super fruity, crisp sharp bitter. Nice complexity in the long finish. Lovely. --- Beer merged from original tick of Abner on 09 Jan 2018 at 13:20 - Score: 8

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! --- Beer merged from original tick of Abner on 01 May 2017 at 21:04 - Score: 8.
