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.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 On tap at my home-brew clubs Christmas party tonight. Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a nice bone white head that persists forever. Wow that aroma has got lots of hops in it for a Pale ale! Juicy citrus and pine with a hint of green onion and a touch of bready malt make for a wonderful smelling beer. The flavor is loaded with pine and citrus with a bit of sweet malt to back it up. Flavorful bitterness, but never harsh. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a bready resinous mouthfeel. This is a great little beer, that at times feel more like and IPA, but its so damn good I’m not going to quibble of stylistic designations.

On tap at home from a keg that is 3 days old (picked up at the brewery). Pours a hazy orange. Citrus and floral aroma. You can taste the hops right away, with some pine undertones. Just a gorgeous APA.

An excellent pale ale. On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a pale orange yellow color with white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit and earthiness. Sweet smooth citrus flavor with a malt layer to smooth it out. A light feel but perfect for the style. Perhaps some spice mixed in. Definitely session worthy.

.Growler, Thanks Dany!!!! Shared with Riley. Pours hazy orange, 1-finger white head, phenomenal lacing. Nose is tropical fruit, grapefruit, grass, stinky hop-juice, really snappy. Flavours of grapefruit, tropical fruit, quite bitter, nice pine and cedar deeper in. Gorgeous, just lovely beer in every way possible.

Nice fresh hoppy citrus aroma as soon as it gets close to your nose... I even got an edelweiss flour hit which got me all excited. Well balanced and sustained bitterness would have thought this to be an IPA

(Draught) cloudy, ruddy deep orange, thick meringue-like head. Nose is funky, hop extract, fresh as hell citrus zest and pulp and cream. Taste of biscuit, mildly bitter, funk, cream, melon, complex and delicious. Near perfect carbonation and palate finish. One of the best pale ales I’ve ever tried.

Brewfest. Yellow pour with a small white head. Clean malt profile, subdued yet very interesting hop profile, nothing else to get in the way. What more can I say? Very clean, dry, and just great to ship on.

Bomber shared by TURDFERGUSON. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Nose is -- wow -- insanely hoppy. Freshest possible hop aroma. Tastes citrusy and just a bit more resiny than I would like. Something herbal metallic that doesn’t quite match the beauty of the aroma. Still, this is amazing, especially given the sessionability.
