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.

Had on tap in a tulip glass.

A: Nice cloudy grapefruit color with a modest head.

S: Citrusy hop aroma

T: Very well balanced with the aroma. Very drinkable.

O: This is a very good beer. Not the biggest beer out there, but well balanced character with great smell and smooth flavor. This would be a great beer to have one after another.

Wish there was better access to more of the Hill Farmstead products.

On-tap at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, VT. Consumed on 11/1. Written from notes.

A - Peach in color with a light white head. Cloudy with no sediment. Perfect suspension. Left beautiful foam lacing.

S - Intensely fragrant. Smelled of fresh hops. Absolutely wonderful smell.

T - Orange, lemon, and fresh hops with a lasting moderately bitter finish. Completely hides ABV.

M - Standard HF high quality. Crisp and clean, and left nice tingle throughout mouth.

O - Best APA I have tried. Surprised it was not an IPA. Highly recommended.
