COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The harvest has been hopped to the hilt using fresh hop cones straight from the nearby Rostrevor hop garden. The variety of hop is unique to the gardens research block. The variety was selected for "The harvest" due to its big orange and citrus aromas, with the fresh hop being added to the kettle as well as the conditioning tank. As for how the hop character translate into the beer, well open it and find out.

A beautiful pale copper/gold colour with a bright white, fluffy head. Not much lacing. Smells really unique - fruity and sour; grapefruit, passion fruit and limes. Drinks well - really smooth but not.partocularly flavorsome. Interesting hop profile - slight pine and lemon taste, a little underdone for mine. Not as dense as I’d like, but smooth and coats well. Good carbonation.

Imaril (14) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2014
Green is the best word for this beer. Smells like fresh hops as soond you crack it. Mild pine, less citrus but a hint. Pours clear amber with foamy white head. Taste is almost all hops but in a balanced and complex way without riding roughshod over one’s palate. Finishes relatively quickly given the bitterness, but fresh.

jonnyguns (903) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Very malt driven nose with a touch of lemon zest. Taste has a bit more of a hop profile, slight grapefruit coming through but toffee biscuit malts take over. Not too bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeliriumT (354) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2014
Very spicy hoppy IPA without a good amount of thought put into the hop selection. Very grassy hop heavy and lacking the good fruit punch of a good American ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
As "Hop Harvest", but same, a fresh hop beer with Rostrevor. Pale, hazy, loose head. The Rostrevor hop brings a slightly lemony, slightly tropical character. Mod bitter w cohumulone, gets only a touch chewy but also orangey and refreshing.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 2, 2013
330ml bottle (Hilpea Hauki, Helsinki)
Initially a massively fruity aroma, pineapple, mango, tons of peach, even some lychee. Once the fruit blast is gone, there’s some leaf tobacco. Hazy to cloudy orange, Utterly enormous sticky off-white head. Quite a refreshing palate, not watery, but certainly light, crisp crbonation, as I expected from the head. Brief, but tasty sweetish malts, and nice fruitiness, as promised. Even though it’s brief, it doesn’t desert you, the bittering hops are quite interesting, they give you a pretty darn big tingle, that does persist. 4.4% beer done right.
