Notes/Commercial Description:
E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

2014 Vintage
Not among my favorite Hill Farmstead beers, but this is still a really nice Saison. Great mouthfeel; light, crisp, lively, and incredibly dry. Pleasantly musty aroma with pepper and tropical fruits from the Galaxy hops, tho I'm sure this has faded a bit by now since bottling. Taste is oaky, bitter, and citrusy with a strong floral/grassy bite. Wish I'd had a fresh one to compare it to. A good compliment to a funky Stilton and some terrine.
