Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Edward (1917-2002) is our grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his five children. In his honor, this American Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Edward’s well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and dry hopped. Aromatic and flowery, with impressions of citrus and pine, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edward.

85 IBU

Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

4.6/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Big fluffy 2 finger head crawls over the edges of the glass, making me take my time before I can even attack it, fades semi slowly with soapy lacing over a hazy golden peach color.

Nose has great hops, citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, light floral and juicy hops, hint of musty resin.

taste brings juicy fruity hops, lots of tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, this would make that fruit I met in P-town feel like a dried fruit, light sweet silky smooth malts. Theres a light wheat vanilla but fruity like soft flavor in there I can't put my finger on. Finishes pretty bitter with soft luscious malts, lots more soft tropical fruits and citrus fresh hops without the oily flavor. This is delicious!

Mouth is med bodied, good carb, nice silky smooth like malt feel too.

Overall just awesome. Great hops, nice soft smooth malt, great tropical fruits without the big oily resinous kick, not super hoppy or super bitter, and malts are not only kept in check, but have a really nice flavor addition with that silky smooth malt kick, I wish I knew how they did it.

Serving type: on-tap
