Tap at dive bar, worcester mass. Quite possibly my favorite beer. Huge flavor and aroma. Hop filled, juicy sticky delicious hops. Unbelievable. Only 5% too. Could be best beer ever

Pale copper, no head. Aroma of citrus, herbal notes and some pine taste follows bringing herbal notes forward. Solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample shared by alexsdad06. Poured cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Very good brew that exceeded my expectations.

jwellford (3) - Keene, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2012 does not count
Tasted over two days from a 750ml bottle fresh from the brewery. The aroma of grass and citrus is this beerís strength--close to perfection. Iím less impressed with the taste--nothing particularly bad about it but quite bland/watery compared to the aroma. Very little taste left for the finish. Overall Edward is Probably the best American Pale Ale Iíve tasted, but to me itís much closer to an Imperial IPA and doesnít quite stack up against something like Heady Topper. If you like to smell but not taste your hops this would be your ideal beer.

On tap at Boilermaker. Poured a cloudy light amber with orange hues and a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange peel, pine, and grass fill the nose. Taste is nice blend of citrus, floral grassy notes, hint of caramel malt, and palatable bitterness. Nice mouthfeel with lingering flavors after a smooth finish.

Thanks turdferguson for sharing, growler from the brewery. Pours a slightly cloudy orange amber. Nose is boss-ome, extremely fresh and pure hop character. Seanís brews have a very definitive hop character in that they smell more similar to raw hops than any other beer Iíve had. Very leafy/green hop character with some citrus resin and mango. There are no off characters whatsoever here. Very very very slight onion/garlic quality, like I get with Summit sometimes. Canít take my face out of this beer, better taste it now... Ohhhh....good. Very very light balancing bready character with a grassy bitterness and rockiní citrus rind character. Medium bodied and dry on the finish. Lots of green hop character (green like whole hop, not like young).

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Re-rate at TJs. Pale orange-yellow body, moderate sized white head. Aroma is full of grapefruit, pine and resin. Pale malts sneak on through in the nose as well. Flavor is similar with a bit more oomph. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, mild bitterness in the finish. .

Swing top to snifter. Looks good; opaque-orange with nice lacing. Smells good too; pleasantly hopped. Tastes solid; good body and balance for the style. Pleasant on the palate too. Good stuff.

Big thanks for this treasure! Hazy light orange pour with a small white head that lingers as a film. Nose is fresh flowers, citrus, pines, tropical fruits, peaches and light caramel malts. Flavor is intense citrus, light pines, tropical fruits, some green grassy notes and finishes dry on the palate given some caramel flavors. LIght carbonation and moderately light mouthfeel. This was quite the nice pale ale. Among the best I have had in the style.

750 ml growler fill at HF. Pours golden with white head. Aroma of piney hops, some dankness. Taste brings some citrus and pine hoppiness. Itís tremendously easy to drink. For whatever reason this time around, the palate isnít doing it for me as much as previously. Itís not as crisp as Iíd like it; I blame that on my apartment being 84 degrees at the moment. Finish is lingering bitter, and maybe a little yeasty. If I had this around regularly, Iíd be a damn happy man. Canít wait to get back to Hill Farmstead, or find it again on tap here in the city.
