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.

Pours a murky amber with white head and good lace. Very strong citrus aroma, bitter, grapefruit and other citrus hoppiness, pine. More of a IPA than a pale ale.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Growler thanks to czar, HUGE thanks man! Pours a cloudy golden with a sufficient head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of dank hops with grapefruit and pine undertones. Taste is highly bitter with not much balancing sugar but thats OK. Flavors are once again hops-derived with a bit of tropical fruits, mangoes and grapefruits to be exact. The bitter aftertaste carries on for an extended duration. A really good... APA... err... IPA? Whatever, great stuff!

Tap. Pours cloudy amber with a medium off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is fairly light, with notes of citrusy grapefruit, mango, perhaps passionfruit. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, light-plus bitter. Dry finish. Medium body, soft and creamy "HF" mouthfeel.

HogTownHarry (6566) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2013
750ml growler muled by jercraigs & mabel - hurrah!! Hazy orange, huge fluffy lasting off-white head - a couple of floaties. Dry leafy/resin bitter aroma, some alcohol, citrus zest. Taste follows - dry, biscuit - did I say dry? - solid. Chewy, astringent, solid carbonation, longish finish - like dried wildflowers. Loved it.

Ataraxia (525) - California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Hazy orange tinged with gold, white lacing. Sweet pineapple, grapefruit, mango, peach, and citrus aroma. Very faint sweet and bitter taste. Crisp, light-bodied, but somewhat thin. A little bitterness in the finish and no alcohol presence.

This is an amazon beer. Great nose of citrus, pineapple and juicy peaches. The taste is amazing bitter but not so close that you would put into an ipa category. One of my favorites!

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2013
Tropical orange, white head, lots of lacing and champagne like carbonation. Really seems like an IPA because its got so much hop going on, but its very drinkable and, on second sip, more balanced than you first think with all the hops there. Amazing that you could get this much flavor in something thats 5.2%

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
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.

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - MAR 30, 2013
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.
