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.

Draft at The Mad Taco. Poured a pale murky yellow color with medium foamy white head. Aromas of pine, floral, citrus, tropical. Flavor had pine, grapefruit, lemon, mango. Very tasty! Light body, sticky texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. Another solid HF hoppy offering.

I tasted the citrus flavor as well the malted barley. A nice after taste. After pouring it, it had nice froth to it. It has a rich caramel color. I would buy this again if I went to that area again.

ben4321 (4750) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2015

Location: Growler from the brewery, 7/8/15

Aroma: Aroma of grapefruit, pale malts, some tropical fruit, grass, and a bit of caramel
Appearance: It pours a murky yellowish-orange color with a frothy head and some mid-heavy lacing
Flavor: Tastes almost as good with a nice fruity and malty sweetness and a good hop bitterness
Palate: It is medium bodied, nice and clean, but a hint too fizzy, with a nice, dry finish
Overall Impression: Another excellent beer from Hill Farmstead. No surprise. I guess my only minor flaw is the carbonation is a bit too high. That is a very minor flaw though. This is an excellent beer. Totally legit.

RRistow12 (437) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a super murky pale gold with white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pineapple, and floral. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter with mild sweetness. Lot of grapefruit on the taste with some other citrus fruits and pine. Little bit of caramel. Excellent overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meilby (9625) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2015
Draught @ Hill Farmstead Brewery, Greensboro, VT
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, floral, grass and hint of citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long citrus and grassy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Bulk_Carrier (2711) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAY 29, 2015
This was on tap at Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy orange gold with a slim quarter finger’s white head. There wasn’t any lacing. The smell had a light floral and light pine. The taste was semi-sweet through the pine. There’s no aftertaste and it had a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body. Carbonation hits as an APA but loses its temper on lack of bitterness. Overall, its good, but nothing over the top. Maybe if I would have had it in its proper glassware, it would have been better. I don’t know, but I’d still try again.

dandeman (654) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
En fut au prohibition pig. Au nez on y perçoit des agrumes et du conifère. En bouche, le poivre se rajoute aux agrumes et le houblonnage laisse libre cours au sapin et à la résine de conifère en abondance. Très ronde en bouche. Très rafraichissante. Exemple typique d’une excellente pale ale américaine.

dresden (1153) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
Growler from brewery. Hazy orange gold with a creamy white head. Beautiful piney, citrusy, melon aroma. Light caramel with a punch of strong citrus and pine. Light carbonation on a light body made this dangerously easy to drink.
