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 Edwards 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. 13.5P, 85 ibus, 5.2% abv. Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a full, shiny matte gold with frothy white head. Phenomenal aroma with everything youd want in a pale ale: Grapefruit, perfume, lemon rind, with just a slight background of pine and yeast. Slight biscuit in flavor but mainly juicy lemon rind, perfume, and grapefruit. Slight, soft lingering pine and lemon rind finish. The qualities here are like having a grass fed locally raised beef burger after years of fatty Piggly Wiggly ground beef. Damn drinkable and subtly addicting.

On tap at Mad Taco in Waitsfield, VT. Pours a hazy, deep gold with a foamy white head that hangs around. Aroma is a warm hops over citrus. Flavor is high citrus backed up by several hops in succession but remains bright and effervescent. Slightly bitter and refreshing aftertaste. Overall this is a beer with character but is not overpowering. Very drinkable.

Growler. Thanks to AdamJackson. Ohh Shit. Hayy yellow with a white head and lacings. Fruit forest. Tropical paradise. Red grapefruit, lemon, pine and strawberries. Bitter, crisp, dry and smooth. Long bitter finish. Incredible.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber gold with a subsided white head.

Aroma: Tangerine, sativa dominate medical cannabis and toffee like malt.

Taste: Toffee, citris and piny hops, melon fruitiness. Finishes with earthy lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, probably a bigger mouthfeel than most APAs, attributed to the lack of filtration.

Overall: Very tasty, vibrant, fresh and more complex than my go to, every day drinking American Pale Ales.

En ft sur place. Un corps dor qui sembrouille et qui montre une belle tte rsistante. Un nez frais et stimulant daiguilles de pin, dherbes fraches et de fruits tropicaux. Des crales qui ne murmurent que lessentiel. Des papilles qui tombent dans le ravissement le plus total : une horde houblonne dsaltrante et des crales qui ne sont jamais sucres. Une bouche presque parfaite. Un ptillement vif dans un corps longiligne. Une finale remplie de soleil et damertume. Quoi dire de plus?

Deep peach color with citrus scent. Incredible layered lacing. Flavor was pine and citrus, grapefruit pith and resin. Incredibly well balanced apa.

Draught at Gingerman NYC. Pours peachy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus fruits: both orange and huge amoutns of grapefruit. Taste is of a citrus pith but very smooth. Notes of pine and grass. Slightly bitter but excellent finish. Terrific beer.
