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 at Highland Lodge, paired with salmon with horseradish sauce. Yum. Cloudy orange color, huge off white head, great lacing. Amazing aroma of freshly cut grass and pine needles. Taste is extremely full bodied, malty, bready, with a bitter pine finish. Wow, is this really a pale ale? Wow.

Growler compliments of Gluglouburp- thanks again Dany! Pours a hazy light orange with average white head and soapy lacing. Nose- resinous pine, white and pink grapefruit rinds and sweet tropical fruits. Just an amazing hop assult to the nostrils. Taste- light bodied cookie dough followed by a juicy and dank wave of hops. Finishes very crisp, and dry to the pallete although with just a touch of sweet creaminess. Great stuff

PhillyCraft (3435) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2011
On tap for the Hill Farm event at Capones. Poured a cloudy orange with zero head and lacing was very spotty. Huge aromas of pineapple, oaky butter, caramel, toffee, warm bread, and loads ofcitrus hops. Taste is pure wood, orange peel, pineapple, pine, vanilla, cocoa powder, caramel sweet malts. A truly incredible pale ale that is up there with Alpha King from 3F. Awesome.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Quite electric orange! Fragrant like summer citrus, stone fruits, and flowers, and supported by a rich, pastry-like biscuit malt aroma. It also shows a lovely herbal greenness that comes near the end of every deep inhale.

Crackery malts and bright citrus fruits, peaches and clementines especially, make up a gorgeously balanced flavor. It’s simple, clean, and spectacular.

It’s both creamy and sparkly in the mouth; full, but delicate. Oily green hops finish with a satisfying, strong bitterness. A brilliant example of an often ignored or sold-short style.

Part of a tasting at the brewery. in Greensboro. Possibly the best APA I’ve ever had. Had a bit of the traditional easy-drinking hoppy feel, but also had a nice bite to it. Almost picked up a growler of this. Awesome beer.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Draft at Monk’s Cafe. Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with golden tangerine hues and a one finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaky lacing left behind. Sweet citrus hop aroma with hits of dry earthy pine. Oily and resinous notes countered by hints of orange peel, mango, grapefruit and tangerine. Pale grainy biscuit malt with hints of graham cracker. Lighter end of medium bodied with a blast of dry bitter hops that linger over the sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes and pale malt backbone info a spicy dry finish. Very good balance of bitter, dry and sweet notes. Hints of oily pine, mango, pineapple and straw with biscuit and Graham cracker malt notes. A bit watered down but still plenty hoppy without being one dimensional. Very easy to drink.
