Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Kegatron on 09-28-2010

Ephraim (1823-1913) was our great-great grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery resides several hundred feet downhill from the land that he and his father settled. In his honor, this Imperial India Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, buckets of American hops, our ale yeast and water from our well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and double dry hopped. Intensely aromatic and saturated with resinous hop flavor, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Ephraim.

280 Theoretical IBU

Pale Malt; Dextrose; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

I poured this beer from a growler and it it had a nice head with a color of straw with some sticky lacing going on in the tulip glass.

The appearance is stellar with the hue of an orange blossom special
The smell is overwhelming of citrus encompassing a cloud of orange, mango, and grapefruit rinds that overcomes you.
The taste reminds me of a fresh morning citrus compote of grapefruit, orange, and mango.
Mouth feel is slightly thick and a bit syrupy with a nice dry finish to it.
Overall a fantastic complement to the DIPA line up at the Farm!
