COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This autumn selection is made with 100% Munich malt and 75 lbs. of fresh, green hops. A rich malty body is perfectly balanced by a substantial presence of hop bitterness and flavor. Dry-hopped twice for your drinking pleasure.

Pours a clear copper color with a ring of white lace. Mild aroma of hops and malt. Good flavor of spicy hops and malt and a bitter finish. The body is full with a dry texture and lively carbonation.

The Lure:
Hop leaves floating atop an orange and citrus rivulet. Caramel malts and its fruity companions accomplish balance with the resinous hops. Gorgeous tandem performance.

The Festivities:
Caramel and butterscotch welcome the hop resins and their bitterness into their comfortable home. A great, cask-like, palate is created, bettered by the equilibrium. I’d like to have Sierra Nevada Harvest besides this and see which one I prefer.

Transcendence:
Freshness and quality are so close to the truth.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Clear orange to brick appearance, completed by a lasting off-white head. Sappy hop nose, fresh and straight from the vines, foresty floral, earthy, leafy and predominantly orangey expressive hops, yet the caramel malt offer its (small) contribution to the flavours. Medium-full bodied, creamy texture, engaging light carbonation, slightly wet in the finish. Good stuff, bittersweet and aromatic.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Pint at the brewpub. Good lacing tops a pale, solid bronze body with some head retention...malty-sweet nose with a slightly green herbal tinge...rather alcoholic body (it’s over 7% this year) but fairly well balanced between sweet and dry, full, with some lingering bitterness and a sour apple texture late that’s odd but pleasing. Not sure what this is, really, sure isn’t a typical alt...more like a sticke, but hoppier than you’d expect. More interesting than great but worth a shot.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Draft - Poured a copper colored amber with a whitish head. Aroma was malty with a nice mix of spicy hops. Flavor was very well balance between malty sweetness and bitter hops. Finish was nicely hoppy. A good one...
