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.

About as perfect as a beer can be in my eyes... Such a easy drinking and refreshing Pale Ale. Refreshing and easy. If i had to pick one beer to have forever, just so incredibly drinkable.

Great! Beer! This was the first beer beside The Heady once I went to Waterbury, Vermont. This beer fills your mouth with a nice hoppy taste. Tasted very very fresh. Hill Farmstead mastered brewing beers. This beer is right on point. I believe it's a American Pale Ale BUT it punches you in the face like a Double IPA.

What more can be said. And quite frankly droning on for more than 140 characters in this day and age is droll. Unreal smell. Wants to be an IPA. Bitter aftertaste. Great to look at. Day old growler. 2L is just enough for my wife and I to share on a cold New England fall night.
