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.

omhper (24973) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2017
Keg at The Farmhouse, Burlington. Cloudy golden, mid sized head. Passionfruit, grapefruit and starfruit up front. Bone dry with light-medium body and clean mouthfeel. Cucumber and starfruit, some pink grapefruit. Pleasantly dry, but a bit hard and edgy. Mid bitter finish. If there is any brewery usually living up to a hype it is HF. This beer however doesn’t, yet it is pretty good.

On tap. Pours cloudy light yellow with a one-finger, white mostly lasting head that leaves good lacing. Light fresh aroma of grass, hay and citrus. Lightly bitter, lightly sweet, fairly dry body and finish, light to medium body, well balanced with a light touch. APA doesn’t get any better.

IMtheOptimator (1167) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - NOV 13, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Poured a very hazy, opaque light yellow orange with a small white head. Aroma of pine and some faint bitter grapefruit. Taste follows, dominated by bitterness with a hint of pine. Searching yields some faint orange rind. Yeasty light mouthfeel. Slight biscuit in the finish. Clean with no off flavors but other than that did not stand out for me in any meaningful way.

Pours a hazy golden color with a thick white head. Nose of heavy citrus, grapefruit, tangerine. Taste is sour from the citrus with a medium bitter finish. It tastes like a fruity juice. Medium body. Excellent.

On tap at Torst, Brooklyn, New York, USA. A hazy light golden/ yellow coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, orange aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus, orange, slight pine. Quite a light APA but very pleasant and easy to drink.

joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 6, 2016
On tap at Fools Gold. It pours a light orange color with a creamy off white head. The aroma is a little herbal with some weed and lime. The flavor has more orange tea, weed, some flowers, melon and citrusy lime. A little honey and graham cracker-like maltiness. Solid citrusy bitterness. Really nice.

Thanks Adam! Spectacular beer. Pours a muddy dull golden with a ton of foamy white head. Big aromas of fresh melon, bubblegum, biscuits. Flavours are similar. Grassy, bread, fresh melons, bubblegum. Don’t know how a pale ale can get much better than this.

3.8
Nickls (2524) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Tap. Cloudy dark peach meat hue. Fluffy white head. Creamsicle, pine, citrus hops in aromas. Flavor is much more woody, some slight white fruit, slight pine, drying but not grassy which is nice. Medium creamy soft body.
