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.

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.

Flavor is citrus and pine but incredibly light, bitter, mineral, herbal. The fruit doesn't carry even a hint of sweetness. Malt note is present but biscuity, dry, a bit yeasty. Chewy mouthfeel yet incredibly dry and thirst quenching. This is one where a 750 growler is barely a single serving size.

Hazy orange color from the tap at Prohibition Pig. Thick two finger head leaves fat rings of lace. Nice scent of pine with hints of citrus. What really stands out is how drinkable and refreshing this beer is ... Taste is piney hop bitterness that is balanced absolutely perfectly. Could drink this shit all day!!
