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.

Tap: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of floral hay and citrus notes with fruity ester and quite incredible. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus notes with nice floral notes with fresh crisp cereal notes. Body is about average with great carbonation. Loads of hoppy with very limited amount of bitterness. Another winner from this brewer.

4.8/5  rDev +8.1%

Pored out of a 750 ml flip top bottle into a snifter glass

Pours a muddled old gold and orange body with a thick lace producing head

Smells like dill pine resin Lemon And faint malt

The taste is very similar to the smell profile

Medium mouth feel

I would certainly put this beer up there amongst the worlds best apa's. not the prototype of a Pliny the elder but close and a pleasant drink.

Poured from a 750ml growler into a snifter. Color was a medium dark amber hue, with a very thin white lacing. Aroma was a fruity floral with strong citrus notes. Flavor started off with a hoppy flavor, but sweet hops with a bit of a orangy profile. Felt great in the mouth. Just a bit of cling to the insides, a tad too much kick on the tongue for my liking. Overall a great beer. Easily accessible for most people, but refined enough to enthusiasts to enjoy.
