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 growler into a pint glass

A - the first pour, which was quite cold, didn't produce much head. Subsequent pours after warming a bit produced a good inch or more or loose white head. Appears a translucent golden color. Very nice looking beer.

S - lots of floral hope with some citrus peel. Orange and lemon zest.

T - quick kick of bitter and citrus grapefruit. Some richer orange peel type flavored, ends with a crisp bitter finish, leaving a floral/lemon aftertaste.

M - medium high carb, lots of oily hop, nice.

O - I would drink it all the time if I could. Strays away from the in your face imperial approach and is just a nice medium presentation of hops.

On-tap at the Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT - served in a Hill Farmstead tulip. Hazy orange complexion with a loose, quarter inch off-white head that dissipates into a consistent skim. Concentric bands of lacing encircle the shoulders of the glass. Nose expresses citrus and floral notes; slightly grassy and delicate with some biscuity aromas towards the back. Taste follows nose; however, more of an earthy/grassy character comes out in the flavor profile with the citrus notes lingering lightly and some hops bittering in the background. There's also a trace of wet cardboard at the finish. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a pleasant, palate cleansing carbonation. Overall, an immensely quaffable American Pale Ale that is a hallmark of the style in my humble opinion.
