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.  13.5ºP, 85 ibus, 5.2% abv. Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Draft. Massive hop aroma - fruity/grassy fresh hops jump out of the glass, grapefruit, pine sap, cut hay, and a very pleasant sweet malt note in the background. Pours hazy, light orange color, white head with good retention and lacing. Flavor is packed with fresh hops. Sticky resin, grassy, grapefruit, light tropical fruit. Malt profile is very nice, light biscuit and graham cracker, pleasant (light) background sweetness. The hop and malt profiles work very well together - both add their own unique flavors without becoming messy. Bitterness is medium-high, but the malt definitely helps support this. Light-medium body, soft texture, medium carbonation. Excellent beer - glad I was able to try it.

Franckg (351) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Robe orange foncée bien trouble. Faible mousse et fine dentelle moyennement collante. Arômes d’orange, pêche, pamplemousse, cantaloup et faiblement malté. Tropical à souhait. En bouche, domination de l’orange. Saveurs de pamplemousse et zeste de citron. La finale, brève et amère juste à point procure un liquide bien léger, désaltérant et facile à boire. Rondeur incroyable pour ce type de bière. Edward en serait fier.

From the growler, from the source, to the mouth in macboost’s car. Had a taster @ Hill Farmstead so i know it looks good in the glass. Citrus hop overload on the nose...which is good. Mango, orange, citrusy hop forward, little malt, and slightly bitter, on the palate. Great beer, would definitely recommend to others.

Three Penny Taproom, Montpellier, VT, draft. May be the best tasting beer I've ever had. Definite apricots. Color of apricots, too. Very cloudy, and beautifully so. Fizzy head. Aroma isn't strong. Mouthfeel a little fizzy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cargo150 (925) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Couleur dorée avec un beau col blanc mousseux. Aromes de fruits tropicaux, agrumes, un peu de résine, un petit coté herbacé que j’aime un peu moins. Une bonne Pale Ale mais qui est moins dans mes cordes.
