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.

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 (11874) - 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 (8636) - 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.

Draught, part of a tasting paddle, at Union Hotel in Newtown, Sydney, on July 11, 2013.
Cloudy honey color, white head. Hoppy, citrus, malty, fresh taste. Medium yet fizzy mouthfeel, high bitterness, though well balanced. Sweet, hoppy, citrus scent.

Leighton (9882) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Tap at Beer Temple - Amsterdam. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white cream head. Has a kind of odd gasoline note and a bit of toasty hay. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with grass, touches of rindy citrus and dry straw bitterness. Meh.

ShaneJ (421) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle from Slowbeer. Hazy amber, lasting, frothy head, aromas of passionfruit, fresh cut grass, lemon zest, good bitterness, resin/pine, some malt sweetness to balance it all out. A very good pale.

Jado (441) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a thich white head that sticks around. Moderate carbonation. The nose is amazing, with a huge whack of passionfruit, papaya, melon and pepper. The taste is dominated by passionfruit, but a note of pine resin comes through too with moderate bitterness, before some lemon, spice and malt. Quite a clean finish, but leaves a light fruity aftertaste. Excellent Aussie pale ale.
