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.

Pyobon (1096) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2012
(bottle) Poured a hazy straw with a good white head. Lovely aroma - mainly citrus with hints of tropical fruit, particularly passionfruit. Medium body with excellent full carbonation. Great flavour with hops apparent from start to finish, but not dominated by bitterness, and the hop contribution evolves through the taste, with a gentle fruity contribution at the start moving to a decent bitter finish. At the start the lemony / tropical fruits of the aroma are present. the flavour develops some peppery spice and nice biscuity malt and then winds up with a long pleasant bitter finish. Overall a very nice beer that is all about the hops, without them overwhelming with bitterness. There’s an nice breadth of flavour in this refreshing beer.

fletchfighters (1255) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2012
A-- Poured a cloudy honey yellow color, with a fluffy bright white head that settled to a one finger in height. Pretty obvious lively carbonation and a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good head retention to the beer. S-- Sweet and spicy hops with a Belgian like biscuit malt smell. Has a fresh cut grass smell to this. Smells a lot like a NZ Sav Blanc. Grass smell becomes larger as it warms up. T-- Spicy hops first and the biscuit malt does kick in. Very lively carbonation again in this. A lot of grassy tones to this with, some lemon as well. M-- Lots of carbonation, already said that though. Very crisp and fresh tasting. Lot of lemon and fresh cut grass to this. Hop flavor is fairly reserved and does not hammer away at you like others in this style do. More of an acidic taste and feel. Just a bit of a pine feel at the very end, not big though. D-- . Heavy grassy tones and this carries it well. Needs a bigger grapefruit presence though as the lemon does become enough after a bit. Malt character is quite interesting and a good touch.

Gramoit (377) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2012
Pours a pale yellow with solid head, plenty of carbonation. Fruits on the nose such as passionfruit, lychee. Fairly tasty with plenty of flavour, with light bitterness and body. Easy to do down, was hoping for a little more but all up its a pretty solid beer and is certainly very sessionable.

ALLOVATE (2624) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2012
Produces a hazy, yellow gold with sparse and intermittent carbonation and a few sea monkeys floating about.Creamy, compact off white head is lasting and adds to the overall mouthfeel. There is a potent, swelling, all hop nose that is arguably seductive. Passionfruit, pineapple, lychee and pear, candied lemon and lime zest meld with notes of vine clippings, pine needles, peppery spice, eucalypt and citronella oil. Juicy, tangy mix of bitter and ripe citrus and tropical fruits dominate the palate. more pineapple, lychee, pear, etc., just a continuation of that wonderful bouquet. Quite foamy but firm; the body is relatively light and the carbonation just a prickle reserved for the tip of the tongue. Sun-drenched malt flavour shines through, giving balance. Not overly bitter in the tail; piney, light wood, subtly floral, but still all hops. This is a showcase glorifying our current hop industry and finally bringing Australia out of the dark ages of the dreaded Pride of Ringwood. These guys have produced a lip-smacking, bang-up, Friday night come Sunday session killer of a beer. And credit to them for keeping it below 5.0% ABV. Lovely stuff. (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
Bouteille de 33 cl. Arômes explosifs de fruits tropicaux (fruit de la passion, mangue, goyave). Robe blonde, légèrement trouble, petite dentelle et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, un malt croustillant supporte le houblon très fruité et aromatique en procurant de délicates notes de pain blanc. Finale sèche et amère. Très aromatique et particulièrement juteux et fruité. Excellent !

The brewers have demonstrated in a beer exactly what it feels like to pick hops in the field Delicious!
