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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: Super hazy with a gorgeous creamy head, this is how a hop-bomb apa is supposed to look.

A: Big pine resin, citrus, and peach hops notes with some fruity esters that lay in the back. Malt is very sublte in the nose, a touch bready.

T/M: Very big bitterness up front, much more akin to an IPA. Moves into the same hop flavors as the aroma, perhaps a tad more piney and zesty. The malt provides very little balance which is totally fine because this beer is all about the complex hop character. Mouthfeel is super dry but not watery, perfect for the style.

Overall, what an awesome APA (tastes like a West-Coast IPA), Hill Farmstead is totally living up to the hype. HOPS!

Serving type: on-tap
