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.

Deep peach color with citrus scent. Incredible layered lacing. Flavor was pine and citrus, grapefruit pith and resin. Incredibly well balanced apa.

Draught at Gingerman NYC. Pours peachy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus fruits: both orange and huge amoutns of grapefruit. Taste is of a citrus pith but very smooth. Notes of pine and grass. Slightly bitter but excellent finish. Terrific beer.

Cloudy Gold Pour with a white head. A very good hop mix for a pale ale. Some nice fruits, citrus, resin, and a little pine flavor. It is damn good!

Fresh hops assault my nostrils. Mildly sweet & fruity notes from the hops. Crisp, refreshing taste. This particular pour tastes a bit old, but I know from experience that Edward is quite a bit better fresh. This one is quite underrated; totally sessionable and delicious.

(On tap au Farmhouse tap n’ grill): Pamplemousse tout le long, bonne amertume franche. Buvabilité d’un autre monde.

nimbleprop (6063) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2013
6oz pour at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington. Hazy orange with thin lacing white head. Nose is both musty and juicy, fresh orange peel, orange juice, grapefruit juice, pine tar, pine needles, soap. Flavor is almost exactly the same, grapefruit zest, orange juice, dried pine tar, meyer lemon, lime zest. Dry, lightly bitter, refreshing finish. Superb.

Beerman6686 (5383) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2013
This poured a light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was citrus, light grain, some grass, and some earthy notes. Flavor was much the same, very well balanced between juicy hops and light grain. Great example of the style.

Thanks to Matt for this one. Damn. Wow. Pours a hazy gold, white head. Juicy, piney, resinous, citrus, herbal hops, stone fruit, yeast. I could drink this beer all day...EVERY DAY.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden. A lot of hops and some malts. Flavor of a lot of citrus and bitter hops. Average texture. A great pale ale. Edit: Many, many growler pours after the original sample. This is the best pale ale in existence.
