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.

Growler Nov 14 2014. Beautiful color with firm head. Moderate citrus aroma. Just the right amount of hop bitterness for an APA. Enjoyed immensely.

On tap at the brewery. Aromas of clean grapefruit, citrus, pine, white peach, full growing bitterness. Aromas of strong C-hops, with a really nice clean malt profile and bitterness. Delicious, mouthfeel is really full with a moderate carbonation. Very well balanced and a beer I will certainly look forward to having in the future.
