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.

Very good IPA. Very delicious.

Pours a nice yellow pale color. It is a bit cloudy. Doesn't have much foam, although a head was formed but dissipated quickly. Aroma is of distinct hops. Taste is hoppy, great for those that are not looking for a piney IPA. This growler tasted a bit watery. Mouth feel is light.

he pour is a reddish orange gold with a thinner white head that leaves a beautiful lace on the brewery tulip. The aroma is incredible. Citrusy hops, with a grapefruit character and a tropical fruitiness to it. Maybe a light piny sensation on the back end. The flavor is so similar. The hoppiness is heavy, but there isn't a overbearing bitterness. The fruitiness and light sweetness at the end is delightful. The mouth feel is almost perfect, and the dryness at the end is outstanding for an APA

Not sure why this is considered a Pale Ale. So darn hoppy, it really should be an IPA! But really, that doesn't matter. What does matter, is this beer's awesomeness. Taste is out of this world. Fruity, with notes of mango, citrus and even some strawberry. Piney, bitter, and dank as well! And so drinkable, it's scary. Try this stuff. ASAP!
