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.

NikkTwist (2673) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft. Cloudy yellow orange pour with soft white foam. Not much aroma. Tannic orange juice. Good dose of citrus resins. Bitter blonde caramel marmalade. Pineapple. Lemongrass. Fuller body than expected. Broadens nicely as it warms. Well balanced. Manages to both bring in and counter some dank grassy hops.

commonmac (1030) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
On tap at Prohibition Pig near Waterbury, VT. Half pint. ECBT Crew present. Deeper orange and golden color with an unfiltered haze. Cloudy. Nice half finger head. Aroma is citrus fun the hops with a healthy dose of pine. Taste is mostly bitter with an oily, resin like mouthfeel. Nice blend of tropical and citrus fruits. Bitterness dominates the palette towards the finish. First beer from this brewery for me and it’s definitely good. Edward is a solid, reliable dude.

commonshawn (1026) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Tap at prohibition pig with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Hazy yellow orange with medium white head. Clean citrus nose. Smooth, strong citrus bite, really nice hop bitterness, fresh. Just a little bit of oiliness . First hill farmstead for me, and happy that it’s for 950. .

Nocturne (1773) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Tap at Warpigs, Copenhagen. Hazy blonde with a big white head. Notes of honey and white grape. A sweetness to the taste that is surprisingly not backed up with too much bitterness. Quite buttery malts with herbal hops. Not quite what I was expecting from this.

JorgeLee (1741) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
On tap at Rattle N Hum West, NYC. I assume this sample wasn’t on top form because I appear to have had a different experience of this beer than everyone else. Cloudy, murky colour; unfiltered but should still be dropping clearer than this. Muddled taste, not overly bitter. Hint of funk. Given the name I assumed it was an attempt at a farmhouse IPA or some such; sanitation issue somewhere along the chain? I’d try it again and re-assess, if someone gave me one.

rouhlas (2691) - GREECE - MAY 19, 2016
From tap at Warpigs, Copenhagen. Hazy yellow color with white head. Light malty and hoppy aroma, floral, citrusy fruity, lemon. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Rune (11055) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2016
On tap outside at WarPigs Brewpub during Hill Farmstead Day, kindly shared by KimJohansen. Lacing to the upper part of the glass. Low white head resting on top of a hazy golden body. Floral and fruity smell, mid-sweet. Freshly hopped taste of tropical and juicy fruits. Sharp fruity bitterness to the aftertaste, long-lived. Well bodied. Enjoying apa (Copenhagen 12.05.2016).
