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.

hallinghansen (1935) - Odense S, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2014
Growler from kfarrell7, thanks. Dark yellow body with a large foamy white head. Lots of tropical fruit like pineapple, sweet mango, hops, light malt. Flavour is sweet tropical fruit, hops, some citric notes. Nice lacings. Again Hill Farmstead blows me away.

Whatup14 (704) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 Growler 750ml. Couleur orangée trouble, mousse blanc cassé crémeuse présentant de grosse bulle et laissant une dentelle éparse. Arôme d’orange, fruits tropicaux, malt subtil, résine. Goût d’orange, pamplemousse, amertume contenue, légère acidité en fin de bouche, houblon résineux en arrière-goût. Carbonataton moyenne, corps moyen-dense, texture ample, huileuse. Ce qui frappe tout d’abord, c’est l’incroyable sensation en bouche. On remarque ensuite à quel point cette bière est bien balancée. Buvabilité infinie.

pinkie (465) - New York, USA - APR 20, 2014
Poured the color of grapefruit juice. Golden hazy and with a slight orange blush on it. Fat creamy head of white foam that lasted well and left lace. This beer smells floral and fruity. Lovely light citrus, pineapple and mango for intense sweetness. Earthy pine that is not heavy and does not stand out past the other scents. The malt on this nose is a light sweet perfume. So wonderful how all Hill’s beer has this quality of lightness both in the nose and in the drink. I think if I had to summarize Hill’s trademark as a brewer I would do it like this - He is trying to put the hops in the beer and leave them on the vine at the same time. He has a way with hops and in this beer they are so fruity and yet so light on the palate. That’s his other trademark, the light malt that is so light it’s like the beer wants to just float out of the glass. Crisp, light sweetness like a floral nectar, a bit of light sweet cracker that has exactly the perfect balance. The beer has a resonance rather than an aftertaste and it’s a light floral fruitiness. As the beer warms some sweet grass and pine comes forward and this is just a lovely beer.
