Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Superb brew. Tried some Lawsons Liquids as well as HF while in VT this weekend and while every HF beer was very good this is the one that stood out for me. I can see how HF got their rep. Every brew was amazing and this was the best. Fantastic flavor throughout. Very tasty. Wish I lived closer so I could enjoy this more often. One of the best Ales I've had.

Out of a growler. Bright hazy orange with small bubbles. Sweet herbal smell, with a very light and fluffy mouthfeel accentuated by bright citrus and pine. Malt backing is there but not cloying. A very drinkable and solid pale ale.
