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%, 21ºP, 280 Theoretical ibus. Ingredients: Pale Malt; Dextrose; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops, Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

750mL growler, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is bursting of tropical fruits, full of mangos and pineapple, some of that signature funky Hill Farmstead smell, and loads of citrus hops. Flavour is absolutely orgasmic, bursting of pungent tropical fruits as mentioned, truckloads of pungent citrusy hops, a bit of floral presence (as with most Hill Farmstead), and just enough malt presence to back without influencing the taste. Ridiculous amount of depth and flavour to this, characterized by the pungent tropical fruits and citrus hops, with no astringency at all. ABV is no where to be detected - drinks like a 5% IPA rather than 10%. Fuck it, a perfect 5 - my first one awarded. Absolutely amazing - I don’t know how Hill Farmstead do it.
