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.

Thanks to BearsonAcid for providing this in a recent trade.
Another treat from Hill Farmstead.
Good looking pint of beer. A somewhat creamy off white head sits atop a slightly hazy peach/orange/amber colored beer. Rings of lace line the glass.
Very nice aroma that certainly screams hops, but also hints to a nice balance ahead (yes, it delivered on this) Juicy citrus, slight green grass and a whiff of light toasted malt..
Wonderful balanced Pale Ale. I could drink this all day long. Frankly, I would love a keg of this for the house. Really a testament to a balanced beer with a nice hop presence. Fruit in front.. Lots of nice bread flavors in the rear. A consistent and wonderful hop bitterness from front to back. This beer screams fresh…. The bread flavors are so inviting it’s wonderful. A touch of yeast at the end.
Really feels unfiltered. I want to say gritty, but I don’t want it to sound like a negative. It isn’t.. Opposite of slick. Just a hint of carbonation.
What a great pale ale. The freshness is unreal. Balance, flavor and feel. Well done.
