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.

This is an amazon beer. Great nose of citrus, pineapple and juicy peaches. The taste is amazing bitter but not so close that you would put into an ipa category. One of my favorites!

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

This IPA isn’t out to be the biggest or the baddest extreme beer on the block but it may be the best one on the block. Dry finish, uber refreshing, mouth watering hop flavors that make you keep drinking another pint. SUPER SESSION beer.

Reminds me of MBC Lunch if Lunch had farmhouse hint and hops were better refined. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Pizza Stone in Chester, VT. Tried Edward first for my intro to Hill Farmstead. Delicious, best beer I have ever had! Then I tried an Arthur and a taste of a James, nice but no Edward. Went back a few days later and stuck to the Edward. Awesome!

UPDATED: APR 16, 2012 Unfiltered, honey-colored pour with a thin white head. Tangerine, pine, tropical fruit funk, and nicely floral nose. The yeast is amazing, and you can tell they have great water. Flavor is earthy, full of mango/apricot, and is wonderfully balanced by firm malt and just enough resin. Ample but soft carb carries the flavors through a fantastic medium-bitter finish. Sitting very lovely around 5%. This just works for me. It has proven to be, far and away, my favorite pale ale.
