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.

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.

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. Dont know how a pale ale can get much better than this.

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.

Tap at Bridgeview Tavern in Tarrytown, NY. Pours a hazy orange, with thick white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, mango, pineapple. Taste is super piney, pine resin, hints of orange and a bit of fruit. Nice strong bitter pale ale. Super smooth and clean mouthfeel. Awesome!

Draft sample. The beer is a moderately hazy orange with a white head of foam. The aroma has a strong orange meat and rind notes. Some vanilla, but major citrus. Dry. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Growler shared by jc1762. Thanks Jon! I thought I had had this one before - I may have and I might have just not rated the beer. Anyway... this one poured a really hazy, cloudy light orange color with a small white head. Aroma was blast of grapefruit zest, very light sweet malt notes. Flavor was nice, zest, light tropical fruit. Pretty tasty.

Tap into a nonic pint showing unfiltered dark orange with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows subtle and mild grapefruit with light malts. The palate is medium bodied and fully carbonated. Flavors of very light grapefruit and subtle malt into a mid-palate of light citric acidity. The finish shows a light grapefruit zesty bitterness.
