From Hill Farmstead – 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 Edward’s 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. 13.5ºP, 85 ibus, 5.2% abv. Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.
Hill Farmstead Brewery – Hill Farmstead Edward – 1 litre growler poured into a Teku like a baller – 5.2% abv. Thanks Dak.
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.
