Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Draft unfiltered Hill Farmstead Edward Pale Ale tasted November, 2017.

Cloudy pale beer with a short white head. Flavor is reminiscent of the glut of American IPA. It has the aromatic hoppy character, possibly a little less pronounced than typical.

Moderate alcohol of 5.2% is a plus.

A little lighter on flavor but this might be because of the strong beers I had just before this. Still pretty nicely balanced and nice subtle citrus notes all over the beer.

Buddy brought over a growler that was probably 3 months past its prime. Lost all of its hops. Hate to rate this, but only way I can show I've had it.

Had it on tap at a beer bar in New York on Long Island. Nice cloudy yellow color with good head and lacing. Very fragrant citrus smell. Prominent grapefruit taste. Very refreshing. Great beer!
