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.

Poured from a 750 mL growler into a stemmed glass. This growler was filled 4 days ago.

Appearance: Pours a hazy light amber and leaves a finger or two of white head.

Smell: Piney hops - surprising potent for a pale ale, and very enticing. Perhaps some honey and mild spices as well, but delicious pine definitely dominates.

Taste: Pine upfront, perhaps some citrus as well as honey and floral hops. It has the hop flavor of an IPA and is really light and crisp. Delicious.

Mouth-feel: Really light bodied and very refreshing - a decent amount of carbonation, just the right amount.

Overall: A great version of hop-forward pale ale. The piney hop flavor is very dominant and surprisingly strong for such a light ale. A great session ale for hop-lovers.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - A nice citrusy-tropical pale, goes down so easy. Amazing beer.
