Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Aromas of super citrus; mainly orange and lemon. No malt character worth mentioning.

The taste is extremely bitter with a strong lingering bitterness which last throughout. You really cannot detect any malt worth speaking of; maybe some light pale and crystal malts, but are those really malt flavors. The citrus hops resonate throughout the palate and are unrelenting.

Mouthfeel is smooth with ample carbonation.

Very drinkable and definitely a good session beer. I couldn't drink more than one or two though (my personal preference), because it kinda kills your palate/tongue from the abundance of hop bitterness. A real tasty offering to have just one pint of though. Crisp and refreshing with light bitterness. One of the best APAs I have have in recent memory.
