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.

Ungstrup (29671) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2012
Draft. A hazy yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of yeast, lemons, straw, and a bit of wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, hay, and a bit of malt, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light. Disappointing for a fresh hop beer.

Oakes (12777) - 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 (9508) - 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.
