Reviewed from notes. Growler bottled 3/8/2014 and consumed shortly thereafter. Poured into a HF tulip.
A - Classic HF appearance: murky with a nice head and excellent lacing. Lighter colored than their IPAs and DIPAs, but still a rich golden hue. For an < 6% beer, it gives the appearance of a full bodied IPA.
O - Super aromatic and intensely hoppy for a pale ale. Mounds of citrus. One of the most pleasant smelling APAs I have had.
T - Very crisp, bursting with hops for a nice grassy flavor. Just enough breadiness to balance the hops without weighing down the beer. Restrained a bit, so it leaves you wanting more.
M - Oily and super creamy, provides that expected HF mouthfeel. This beer is extremely drinkable.
O - My favorite pale ale. Hill Farmstead is my favorite brewery for a reason, and its no surprise that their "standard" brew hits all the right notes. Edward is simply a classic.

Half pint draft pour into a mini-nonic glass.
Peachy orange, nearly opaque, a thin layer of white froth sits on top, leaving behind a ring of delicate lacing. The skim parts to one side after a couple of sips.
Big citrus aroma of tangerine and grapefruit, citric with a green undercurrent. Bitter grapefruit pith and resiny pine bitterness that lingers into the aftertaste. Very smooth and drinkable with a light carb level. My personal jury is still out if this is any better than Zombie Dust.
Serving type: on-tap
