Brewed by:
Hill Farmstead Brewery
Vermont, United States

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.

2 liter growler shared with many PA locals!

poured into HF glass.

Appearance: cloudy golden yellow bodied beer with massive creamy white head.

Smell: Lots of juicy peach and grass in the aroma! Slightly dank and hint of chalk and cat piss. Hint of bready malts.

Taste: Mild bitterness. Lots of juicy peach hops. Hint of citrus and pine. A mildly dankness and a hint of chalk! Light bready malts that are perfect for those hops.

Mouthfeel: light body with low almost moderate carbonation levels. Very creamy and very drinkable.

Overall: This is almost like Pseudosue with a more prodominent peachy hop profile. As expected Edward is an excellent hoppy beer brewed by Sean Hill.
