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.

A- from 750ml growler. Pours a hazy, light orangey gold with a solid egg shell white head. Good lacing. S- aromas of lemon, grapefruit, orange, fresh cut grass, pine, soap, herbs, biscuits and some earthy mustiness. M- light creamy bodied and mild acidic palate. T- begins with a tart citrus, grapefruit and lemon. Bitter grasses, pine, and some floral notes. Ending is clean and dry. Crackers, herbs and lingering citrus. Relatively simple and expected but well handled all the same.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pours from a swingtop bottle a hazy yellow color with a medium thick fluffy white head that recedes gradually to a wispy film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and bready malt. Light-bodied with flavors of piney hops, grapefruit and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

On tap at the Farmhouse in Burlington, hazy golden color, subtle flavors of pine and orange, other citrus flavors and vanilla... creamy as can be... understated but absolutely delicious!

Bottle shared by Tony. Pours hazy dark straw color with white head. Aromas of pine and citrus with some grass. Similar flavors with moderate bitterness and citrus rind. Medium body with average carbonation. Great beer!

An absolutely other-worldly beer from one of the best breweries on the planet. Unbelievable.

Tstamba (214) - Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Draft at brewery. Hazy gold/ amber with white head. Very hop forward, grass and pine forest in nose with fruit and pine in the finish. Another great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbdpsu82 (95) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Aesthetically amazing. Pours a hazy amber with a beautifully thick vanilla-colored head that sticks around. Hoppy and floral aroma treats the nose. Foamy head still around when going to drink, major lacing. Flavor is surprisingly weak. Hoppy. Very dry aftertaste. Great, great beer

On tap at Three Penny, great citrus and pine aroma, taste is very well balanced with a light bitter and dry finish, great pale ale.

DuffMan (6168) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
Sampled while waiting in line at the brewery, then twice more since then from fresh growlers. Such an elegant expression of hop character, very delicate and yet very flavourful. While Walden delivers a similar overall drinking experience, Edward proves to be more citrus-forward where Walden was more green and herbal. Both do a remarkable job of showcasing all that fresh hops have to offer, married to dry crackery light malts. Artistry.

Good brew, I expected a little more hop in the aroma dept. Still a great example of the AIPA style.
