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.

From a fresh growler into a modified tulip glass.

A - Great fresh haze, golden straw, fine cumulus cloudy head, lacing that lingers for the entire interaction.
S - Grass, lemon, a walk in the pine forest after the rain. A poem written with hops, malt and water.
T - Initial oils lead to a clean tight finish. The Columbus hops trail off into desire. Quite interesting how the taste ends nice and dry. The malt, hop dance is tempered with a hint of tannin, nothing out of balance.
M - The body is decieving, robust, full and well displayed across the palate. From citrus to peppper, with a stop in the pines for a glance, Edward displays true craft.
O - Advertized as an APA, with tinges of IPA. Edward is as creative and interesting as is befitting an ancestral homage.
Thank goodness this is the choice for a "flagship" beer from HFB.

Cheers
