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.

Tasted from draft. Pours a super murky pale gold with white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, and floral. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter with mild sweetness. Lot of grapefruit on the taste with some other citrus fruits and pine. Little bit of caramel. Excellent overall.

Cloudy light orange amber appearance with one finger of white head. Fairly strong malty citrus aroma. Taste is a very pleasant malt citrus taste with plenty of carbonation and a little dryness at the end

On tap at Hill Farm.
A yellow hazy liquid comes from the tap with a nice white head.

Nose is very inviting, caramel malt, flowers, pine tree, it smells so fresh.

Taste is caramel malt, pine resin, citrus, an APA I wish I could brew.

The glass is empty in no time, it was very refreshing, well balanced, astonishing quality.
