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.

Taken from notes from a recent trip to Montreal and Vermont.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill. Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with an inch of frothy head. Some lacing. The aroma is hoppy with some citrus and tropical fruits. Maybe tangerine? the taste is bitter apricots with nice tropical fruits. grapefruit notes as well. Nice bitterness with a good amount of fruity hop flavor. Dry and resinous. This is a Pale Ale with a lot of fruity and hoppy that rivals most IPAs. Overall, its bitter, hoppy and drinkable. Glad I got to try it. Fantastic Pale Ale worth seeking out.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Reservoir in Waterbury and sampled at the brewery. From notes.

A - Really cloudy orange pour with one finger of white head. Good carbonation. Film retention and great drapes of lace all around.

S - Passionfruit, orange, bright citrus. Very bright and poppy hops coming at you. Smells like ripe, light tropical fruits. Maybe galaxy?

T - Passionfruit, grapefruit pith, citrus, orange, peach. Lot's more bright and tropical hops.

M - Good carbonation, medium body, and a good citrus bitterness.

O/D - A pretty nice pale ale. Seems pretty heavy with that bright, lovley fresh citrus flavour, and it's really thirst quenching and complex. Really well made, to the point, and tasty. Very drinkable too. A good one.

Serving type: on-tap
