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.

Pours a cloudy orange with a fluffy white (And I mean pure white head). Lacing is perfectly distributed. Notes of pine, grass and grapefruit. Silky smooth almost like it was poured on nitro. Palate is slightly watery.

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong floral hop and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with nice light fruit hop, grapefruit, light bitterness. Really enjoyed this one.

WillemsUrenkel (477) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the brewery on 21. June 2014. Standing two hours in line. Big thank you to Russel for his patience and driving. Unclear yellow golden in the glass. Everything what you expect from a Hill Framstead beer was in this sample. Floral hopy, fruity, malt, yeast, complex and full body. Maybe a little bit scratchy.

kathouse (991) - Nevada, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Cloudy orange. This beer has a much more "dank" flavor to it. Hops were heavier on the palate and the finish was not as clean. Pine resin and bitter fruits are not quite as balanced as I would like, but then again, who am I to judge. It’s still a very good beer.

Pours a hazy bright golden with white head. Hop resin, funk, citrus and pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweetness.

On tap at the brewery. Milky pale yellow pour with a white head. Mild citrus and grapefruit hop notes. The nose is faint but similar. Solid and refreshing. Not a huge body but with a pleasant mouthfeel. Not overly bitter but still with an understated malt presence.
