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.

Huge thanks to my friend Mike for sharing this with me! Growlered recently (unsure of specific date); pours 8/18/13. Hazy straw-gold color with a thick, fluffy white head; great head retention. Aroma is incredibly clean and pure; pine, citrus, grass, some sweetness (vanilla?). Taste is similar and fantastic; grass, floral, citrus, pine, slightly sweet. Excellent. Beautiful, rich lacing. Medium carbonation. Medium bodied. Highly drinkable; no alcohol burn evident. This will be the APA to which I compare others from this point on.

BreWedge (563) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
750 ml growler direct from brewery. Pours a nice hazy yellow with a large pillowy white head. Aromas are citrus, pine, tropical fruit, and some sort of malt background (bread or earth). Taste has a good malt presence up front (again bready and earthy) and perhaps a touch of caramel but pine resin and grapefruit asserts itself immediately. Oily texture, medium body, and soft carbonation with a medium astringent finish. Very nice APA but enough of a hop bomb to be considered an IPA in my opinion.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Growler:   Fiery amber, very pale haze, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft floral and candied citrus peel on the nose.   Smooth somewhat oily start, hoppy, citrusy, nice little bite to it.   Very fresh, but not as aromatic as I would have thought.   Floral aspect fades somewhat quickly.   Moderate to full bodied.   A little pithy on the finish.   Solid, well made, but I still prefer Zombie Dust (but not by much).   Big thanks to chouffe for giving me the opportunity to try this!

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 On tap @ Prohibition Pig. Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a small fluffy white head. Big aroma of citrus, grapefruit, melon, and grain. Taste is bready, sweet citrus, orange rind, and lots of grapefruit bitterness.

Orange pale gold, just a touch cloudy. Smells of oranges. I taste malty sweet, then sharp citrus acidity, then piney hop. Very nice.

jbeatty (1266) - New York, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Growler, 07/29/2013. Pours hazy orange, large frothy head dies to a nice pillow on the surface, lacing clinging to the glass all the way down. Aroma is dank, tangerine and grapefruit flesh, herbal dry hopped notes, peach and mango, earthy caramel malts mild in the finish. Taste is orange, peach, tropical notes transition to grapefruit and mild caramel, biscuit, giving way to bright pine notes, tingling, dry finish. Medium body, creamy and balanced, extremely drinkable. Excellent without a doubt.

Dpaquet (422) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
Pour is hazy golden with nice white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with lots of citrus (grapefruits but also some orange), piney and spicy notes, tropical fruits (mangos, peaches), light malt presence. Taste is mainly citrusy and tropical hops with some piney notes and just enough malt to hold everything. Low to medium body and medium carb. One of the best APA out there if not THE best. Beautiful.

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.

Grolwer pour @ pw, thanks fitz. This one is great, a juicy and flaoral APA that is immensely crushable.

JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
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.
