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.

Bubbles pop across one-finger of pure tan head. Color is is bright orange with reddish hues.

Smell is beaming with citrus hops and a bit of resin and caramel in the background.

A nice flourish of orange and grapefruit is quickly underscored by notes of grain, sugar and caramel. As evidenced with other HF tries this one is about as perfect as you can get with the hop/malt balance.

Light bodied and crisp with a soft middle.

This is a colorful APA that does great justice to an oft overlooked style.
