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.

On tap at the Capone's barrel aged event.

Pours a hazy orange color with a little half inch of head. Minimal lacing down the glass.

Smells like pine, citrus, earth and bread.

Taste opens up with a serious pine presence and moved into a bread flavor. Finishes with pine and a bit of a lingering taste of pine.

Mouthfeel is a bit heavy but great carbonation.

Overall, it's good, not a great pale ale.
