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.

At the brewery taproom in a tulip stem.

Beautiful creamy head. Good retention through the first half. Sour/sweet clean smell. Smooth and remarkably balanced. No one flavor stands out from the sweet front end to the bitter hops on the end. Very refreshing and satisfying throughout. World class.

Had on tap at Three Penny Taproom in Montpelier on Monday, 9/26. Pours a hazy amber/orange color with a small head that leaves great lacing. Smell is juicy and pure hops, lots of citrus swirling around. BAM! Instant orange flesh and malt sweetness in the flavor. Hop oils and bitterness in the back give off some herbal qualities and some grapefruit rind. Never gets too malty and never gets too bitter. Just a total orange juice bomb with a light body and delicate carbonation. Easily one of my favorite pale ales now, world-class.

On tap at Coopers Craft Chelsea 9/25/15. Clear orange pour, firm head, tons of lacing. Smell is citrus, taste is clean pine and muted (not sweet) fruit. Remarkably easy drinking with a clean dry finish. Superb.
