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.

My last brew before the CBS raffle and I wasn't about to pass up my first shot at a Hill Farmstead beer.

A- Very hazy, turbid gold brew. Crackly white large head. Yellow and orange hues. There also looks to be a film to the texture of this beer in the glass.

S- A fine bouquet to this pale ale of lemon, lime, citrus, orange peel and alpine needles. Lots of floral notes in here which leads me to believe there was some good dry hopping. Very fresh hop scents.

T- Nice & bitter. Mostly citrus, with lemons and piney hops. There's also some honey suckle in this beer which is different yet delicious.

M- Medium bodied pale ale with medium carbonation. Lip smacking is repeated throughout drinking due to bitterness.

O- Great smell, great bitterness, and taste. All qualities in this beer you would expect from an IPA rather than a pale ale. So smooth and so drinkable. I can't wait to try more from HF.

Serving type: on-tap

Growler shared with daysinthewake.

Deep, dark golden, almost orange colors. Soap sud, white head. Settles to bubbles. Lots of lacing on the glass.

Lots of tropical fruit, peach and mango. Slight cereal grains, mingles with citrus rinds.

Strong flavors of pine resin. Very earthy. Some tropical fruits. Burnt orange rinds. Dry cracker malts.

Very hoppy and strong for a pale ale. Good drinking. Another great beer from this brewery.

Serving type: growler
