Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

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.

Easy drinking and delicious. Nice color. Great balance. This beer is not trying to be anything crazy. It is simple and perfect.

Had on tap at the Whetstone Station, Brattleboro

L — Orangey amber haze with a small white head that dissipates quickly but laces well. Looks pretty similar to Susan.
S — Smells like a field of wildflowers, with notes of sweet citrus, honey, peppermint, and papaya in the background
T — Musty musk, crackery malts, mint, wildflowers, and fresh orange rind
F — Medium- mouthfeel, medium+ carb. Fluffy and easy drinking, with the usual elegant restrained hop bitterness that is characteristic of HF
O — This is probably the most distinctively minty brew I’ve ever had. Didn’t pick up on it at first, but as soon as I did it was one of the most predominant aromas/flavors. Makes for a really unique, refreshing character

86/100

Poured a cloudy orange body with great head and lace. Acidic/orange aroma with some minimal bittersweet aromas of caramel malt and fruity hops (torn between grapefruit and tropical). The yeast keeps it smooth and adds a touch of sweetness that is underneath the acidic/sharp but not bitter acidic and grapefruit-like hops. Finishes slightly clean and is an easy-drinking beer thanks to great balance and is quite enjoyable.
