American Pale Ale (APA) |  5.20% ABV

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.

Poured from a 750 mL growler into a stemmed glass. This growler was filled 4 days ago.

Appearance: Pours a hazy light amber and leaves a finger or two of white head.

Smell: Piney hops - surprising potent for a pale ale, and very enticing. Perhaps some honey and mild spices as well, but delicious pine definitely dominates.

Taste: Pine upfront, perhaps some citrus as well as honey and floral hops. It has the hop flavor of an IPA and is really light and crisp. Delicious.

Mouth-feel: Really light bodied and very refreshing - a decent amount of carbonation, just the right amount.

Overall: A great version of hop-forward pale ale. The piney hop flavor is very dominant and surprisingly strong for such a light ale. A great session ale for hop-lovers.

Had his on draft at The Pizza Stone, I think in Chester, VT.

I had no expectations, because I knew nothing about this beer.
It had the malty hoppy smell of a brewery. As I tasted it, I could tell it had a high IBU, but it wasn't out of balance. This was an exceptional beer. I asked the bartender about it and she informed me that, "the brewery is the highest rated in the world."

Needless to say the beer blew me away!! One of the best all around beers I have ever had.

Experiences like this are what it's all about!
