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.

Draft at Mad Taco in Waitsfield. Review from 10/8/14.

Pours an orange amber color. Very hazy with a creamy white head and good lacing.
Smells delicious! Very juicy with lots of tangerine, grapefruit and tropical fruit.
Flavor follows the nose with an amazing citrus profile that gives way to just a touch of malt sweetness with a nice crisp bitterness on the finish. Really nicely balanced.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Lots of resinous hop oils contribute to a dry finish that demands the next sip!

Overall, this is a fantastic beer. Exceptional balance and great hop flavor. I was very sad to see the last of it in my glass.
