American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.20% ABV

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.

Poured fresh from a 2L growler to a tulip glass

A - Hazy pour, nice light copper/orange color with a white head. Head diminished pretty quickly after a minute or two.
S - Fresh and crisp with citrus notes that definitely hint to an ensuing bitter taste.
T - Nice upfront bite that provides that citrus flavor and bitterness, and mellows off to a crispy hop flavor. Pleasant aftertaste.
M - Well carbonated, fairly light and fresh feel to it.
O - Really enjoyed the refreshing nature of the citrus and light feel, which accompanied by the 5.2% ABV, provides a great experience beyond that first beer!
