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.

Damico (2790) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2011
It pours amber orange with a a light golden hue. The aroma is very light hops. The flavor is light and juicy with smooth hops and almost citrus wheat notes. The body is light and so smooth, hitting the mark for a pale ale. One of the best in this style ever.

keepersj12 (2847) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2011
As good as an APA gets. On tap at Hawthornes in Philly. Pours a nice light amber with a small head. The aroma has a load of pine, citrus, some sweet malt. The flavor starts malty sweet but is taken over by a big hop hit. Very crisp and refreshing. Excellent.
