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.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2011 Draft with Pat at Blind Tiger for the Hill Farmstead event. Pours a hazy orange amber body with nice white lacing. Aroma is fresh pine hop. Mouthfeel is delicious with great notes of pine, spicy yeast, slight malty notes, and a great combo of hops.

Fresh growler from Joe. HUGE thanks! Shared with Pops. Pours slightly hazy golden color with a small fluffy white head. Beautiful aroma of fresh hop pellets, grass, hay, lightly sweet malts, very light citrus peel. Incredibly light bodied and fresh hops, sweet citrus and malt finish. Super easy drinking, medium carbonation, crisp and clean finish. Just awesome. My first HF experience and it is an excellent one.

Beautiful full yellow color, strong pine and citrus aromas. Very outdoorsy fresh taste... like you’re eating an orange and a lemon while walking in a pine forest.
