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.

Thanks to Turd for sharing! Another superb, richly flavorful, and impressively balanced pale from HF. Nice deep orange pour, medium cloudy, with a generous head. Nose is massively floral, with a slight sharpness to it. Full, vibrant mouthfeel with a touch of a dry finish. Some more hop leaf and resin in the taste, green and fresh, but not at the expense of the modest fruitiness. Excellent stuff overall.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Orange glow almost florescent in the glass. Nice light frothy head. Poured into HF steamware from my keezer. The aromas are heavy florals. The taste profile is waves of light hoppy bitterness. Florals and citrus are upfront, with a clean light finish.

My bottle [750ml] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp. Nov. 2. Pours a murky orange/peach-colour with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of citrusy and fruity hops, a touch catty and also a bit spicy. Fruity and citrusy flavour, also catty and herbal. Average to medium bodied. Another great IPA from these guys!

thome50 (1283) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Growler. Pours a golden orange with big white head. Aroma is pine, fresh cut grass and some mild hops. Taste is slight resin fresh hop, then a very earthy/soil taste that is very fresh but very dirt like. More fresh cut grass taste that is very nice from a refreshment stand point. The mouth feel is really light here and makes it seem almost watered down. The carbonation is slightly low but could be the growler. Overall, a very nice session beer with a great deal of flavor.

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.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2012
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.
