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.

Perfect , this is what a pale ale should taste like. Balanced and delicious. I don’t need to be nerdy about it. If you can get it, drink it enjoy it and shut Your mouth

Meilby (9435) - 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 (2669) - 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 (642) - 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 (1130) - 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.

Franckg (435) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Robe orange foncée bien trouble. Faible mousse et fine dentelle moyennement collante. Arômes d’orange, pêche, pamplemousse, cantaloup et faiblement malté. Tropical à souhait. En bouche, domination de l’orange. Saveurs de pamplemousse et zeste de citron. La finale, brève et amère juste à point procure un liquide bien léger, désaltérant et facile à boire. Rondeur incroyable pour ce type de bière. Edward en serait fier.
