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.

Real orangey. Seriously, it smells like someone peeled a clementine, but no, it's just this beer. Sweet orange aromas, great light mouthfeel with enough body to keep it interesting, but not get heavy after drinking a pint of it. I don't know if I could only drink this beer for eternity, there's no pine or resin to kick me in the teeth, but for a night, a week, I could really dig this in the springtime sun.
