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 The Reservoir in Waterbury Vermont. Hazy amber color and fruity(maybe peach) nose. Tastes included peach, pineapple, mango and a slightly grapefruity finish. A very smooth mouthfeel. An enjoyable and flavorful beer.

Anything this company makes is PURE GOLD!!!! I had their beers at the Whetsone in Brattleboro, VT., the Mount Snow Brewer's Festival in West Dover, VT., and at The Milling Room in Manhattan, NY. This company is fantastic. I have never been disappointed and every sip is orgasmic. Can I say that on here without getting in trouble? I would invest my lifesavings into this company if I could. Contact me if you need venture capital. No joke!! I'd take a Hill Farmstead over a Heady Topper or anything from Treehouse or Toppling Goliath any day of the week.

A-Hazy orange with little head and great lacing
S-luscious tropical fruit and citrus with pine
T-Lots of orange rind in the back end, yet sweet and juicy upfront. This beer comes off as a supercharged orange flavoured soft drink in the best way and an awesome well crafted beer on the other.
M-The delicate and well balanced mouthfeel makes this beer wonderful. Resinous and juicy while dry and
O-amazing.
