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 a 8oz pour from growler

A-Pour is hazed pale golden amber with a perfectly tight white head. Great lacing.

S-Aroma is huge hop, well balanced pale malt and grain bill with notes of grass and a strong citrus punch.

T-Taste is a touch more balanced, very drinkable. Grain bill is more pronounced with a light pale malt. Hops are herbal, grapefruit and citrusy, grassy notes linger with a very light bitterness.

M-The mouthfeel is almost perfect, and the dryness at the end is outstanding for an APA. Great carbonation.

O-Overall an awesome APA a must get!

In a tulip this beer was a hazy orange color. There was a medium-sized white head and an abundance of lace.

Very much citrus for aroma. Tinge of pine. Sweet malt.

What a taste! Grapefruit, tropical fruit, a bit of pine, some grassy hops. Bready.

A nice hoppy beer, but still somewhat restrained.

The first Hill Farmstead beer I've tried. Am looking forward to many more.
