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.

Growler sample shared with the group. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has fruity citrus and floral hops,mild bready malts, some sweetness, hhints of grass. The flavor has a bready malt base, citrus and some tropical fruit, grass, hints of caramel and a touch of resin. Pretty tasty example of the style.

Sample at the brewery on 7/6/13. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Malty and grassy nose with pine and grapefruit notes. Malty and piney flavor with some slight peach before a mild finish.

Boutip (6385) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2013
Tap: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of floral hay and citrus notes with fruity ester and quite incredible. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus notes with nice floral notes with fresh crisp cereal notes. Body is about average with great carbonation. Loads of hoppy with very limited amount of bitterness. Another winner from this brewer.

Draft at the Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT. Killer! How did they get that much flavor in a 5% beer?! Great fresh aroma of citrus hops, this beer is so fresh and full of citrus hop goodness. Worthy of the hype!

Had as a taster at the brewery - have a growler and will update once I’ve had a full glass. Pours a hazy golden color. Medium head, strong lacing. Moderate hop aroma on nose. Smooth on palate, well-balanced. Something sharp mid taste (can’t identify), long finish. Little spruce maybe? Excellent complex pale ale.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at The Farmhouse Tap & Grill in Burlington (VT) on June 21, 2013. Honey and hazy pale orange, small head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit and peaches. The taste is quite the same, but a little more juicy and dry, good bitterness. Good way to honor their grand dad!

Draft at HF. Pours a hazed gold with a nice creamy white head. Nose is a good blend of citrus and resin, super clean and fresh. Low malt with subtle sweetness. Floral as well. On tasting, medium bitterness with a big hop presence. Smooth and low sweetness that balances well. Citrus and floral. Fantastic apa.
