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.

One of the few APA's I've had that I haven't had to try hard to like. On draft in a tulip at Blue Dog Cafe in Chalfont. Great piney taste throughout the entire beer, more so as it gets warmer. Great lacing and mouthfeel. Very drinkable. My first Hill Farmstead beer is certain impressive. Just having Topper about 2 days again, I'm thinking I need to relocate to VT for sure.
