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.

A beer that really transcends its style. This brew starts out like a normal pale ale, with medium hops and a well-balanced malt backbone. But the finish is where things really get interesting with earthy, grassy hop flavors coming forward, and I’m pretty sure there is a light Belgian yeast funk in there as well.

RasmusOtt (1255) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2014
Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours a hop hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is just insane! Smells like a cocktail from down south with squeezed tropical citrus fruits. I get lots and lots of Apricot along with some mango, pine, orange, peach, grapefruit and mandarin. The taste has a decent amount of fresh hop forward bitterness containing some pine, tropical fruits, citrus, bitter grapefruit and an almost minty end. So refreshing and gewd!
