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.

Bomber shared by TURDFERGUSON. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Nose is -- wow -- insanely hoppy. Freshest possible hop aroma. Tastes citrusy and just a bit more resiny than I would like. Something herbal metallic that doesn’t quite match the beauty of the aroma. Still, this is amazing, especially given the sessionability.

Tap at Bridgeview Tavern in Tarrytown, NY. Pours a hazy orange, with thick white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, mango, pineapple. Taste is super piney, pine resin, hints of orange and a bit of fruit. Nice strong bitter pale ale. Super smooth and clean mouthfeel. Awesome!

Growler shared by jc1762. Thanks Jon! I thought I had had this one before - I may have and I might have just not rated the beer. Anyway... this one poured a really hazy, cloudy light orange color with a small white head. Aroma was blast of grapefruit zest, very light sweet malt notes. Flavor was nice, zest, light tropical fruit. Pretty tasty.

neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2016
(On tap @ Warpigs HF Day, Copenhagen, May 12 2016) Pours a hazy gold with a large dense white head and some lace. Aroma of grapefruit, moderate pine, leafy, floral, subtle orange/lemon zest and tropical fruit, just a little malt sweetness and bread beneath. Flavour is pine, grapefruit and lemon peels, leafy, slightly floral, a bit juicy, subtle bready malt core. Lightly sweet to begin, finishing dry with lasting moderate bitterness, pine/leafy/floral aftertaste. Medium bodied, average carbonation, fairly crisp. Good balance in general, a touch on the bitter side for a more modern east coast APA but a very good drinker.
