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.

A: Golden orange, as hazy as it gets, about an inch and half of white fluffy head. Lots of lacing.

S: Hop heaven. Tons of juicy citrus: ripe orange, tangerine, grapefruit, mango. Amazing. Fresh hops just burst from the nose. I think there are simcoe hops in here, has the characteristic aroma in the background.

T: Really fresh, juicy, citrus hops. Same depth and profile as the nose. A bit of bitterness and pine, but not anywhere near what I'd call a bitter IPA. Really light and clean malt that has a little of crystal sweetness, but finishes is pretty dry. Citrus hops are a bit mild compared to the nose and seem to fade to some floral notes in the middle and finish. Finish is a little bitter with floral, pine, and some citrus. Fairly light, dry, and clean. It tastes unbelievably fresh.

M: Light to medium bodied, moderate to slightly high carbonation, somewhat sticky and resinous. Very nice crisp, dry finish. About as smooth as any dry IPA can be.

O: Easily one of the best American Pale Ales I've had. It has more hop flavor than most IPAs, but with a great balance of bitterness and malt. It is a lot more dry than it is sweet, but I think it's a perfect balance of sugar. Crazy good crisp finish with a really pleasant lingering aftertaste.
