COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ephraim (1823-1913) was our great-great grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery resides several hundred feet downhill from the land that he and his father settled. In his honor, this Imperial India Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, buckets of American hops, our ale yeast and water from our well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and double dry hopped. Intensely aromatic and saturated with resinous hop flavor, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Ephraim. 10.3%, 21P, 280 Theoretical ibus. Ingredients: Pale Malt; Dextrose; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

A hazed blonde DIPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, wonderful floral hops with light catty notes, orange pulp, smooth and wonderful. In mouth, loads of citrusy hops, over grassy malt, catty hops, superb.

Bottle shared by a random guy at Maxs. Pours clear copper with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is citrus, grassy, floral hops, fruity tropical esters, light malt, faint alcohol, and a very dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2011
Growler This beer rocks! Clear golden ale with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. Flimsy retention. The nose offers a plethora of hop greatness pine, pineapple, orange peel, peach and white pepper. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. This beer is dripping with fresh lupulin flavor, but is amazingly balanced. The high alcohol content is not remotely evident. Finishes bittersweet and continues to provide fantastic hop flavor for an extensively long time after each sip including the final one that I am somewhat sad to take. This world class growler of bliss was shipped to me by one of my favorite Canadians; Glouglouburp!

Growler @ Dans house, courtesy of Steve_0. Huge thanks! Pours a cloudy yellow appearance with a small white head. Richly piney, orange citrusy, grapefruity, a bit resiny, spicy hoppy aroma. A bit chewy, rich grapefruity, spicy, zingy orange citrusy, delicious flavor. Super easy to drink with no notice of this 10%. Nice stuff.
