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.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Tap @ Beer Temple 08/09/12 Pours a hazy yellow with a large, white head. Aroma is kiwifruit, loads of exotic fruit. Taste is lots of kiwifruit, passion fruit, grapefruit, light dry maltiness on the finish. Aftertaste is the exotic fruit line-up again. Palate is light.

Bottle shared with Nate. As he says it may be a bit passed it, but i still enjoyed it. Looked a bit piss weak, very light straw yellow. Aroma is malt accentuated with faint hops. In the mouth is quite heavy and the resonious hops are interesting. Overall well done. Fresher I could only imagine it mgght be a few points higher. Cheers Nate!

Tap. Delicious. Aromas of citrus, and pine. Taste starts sweet, with some sourness, and a long bitter finish. Palate is velvety, with a light-to-medium body. Cloudy yellow, with a frothy white head.

A great companion to the more intense but far less sessionable Bling IPA. This beer shows fantastic balance and the green nettle hops are a real highlight on both the nose and in the mouth. This hop input is quite subtle but matches the structure very well. Lachlan is right in saying that the palate power is a bit light but this didnít detract from the sheer drinkability. A true session beer if I ever saw one.

Bottle. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Okay first off Iím not sure about the freshness of this bottle but here goes anyway...nice fruity hop aroma - mainly tropical fruit mix with a faint grassy even resiny backdrop. The flavour is quite subtle by way of malt backbone but does enough to support the fruity hops which are obviously the showcase in this beer. Itís not heavy on the palate making this one very quaffable, with a smooth bitterness that lingers through to the finish. All up a solid APA but I think it may have lost itís punch after some time in the bottle.

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.

Maris (1394) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2010
From a 330ml bottle on 15/5/2010. Has an unusual yeasty citrus aroma - as claimed on the label, itís orange that comes immediately to mind. This one was packed with as much yeast sediment as Iíve found in a beer. Flavour wise, itís as curious as its aroma. Citrus fruits predominate (orange again, and some lemon) but the big hop kick which is promised just doesnít eventuate, with the bitterness moderate at best.

Pyobon (1315) - 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. Thereís an nice breadth of flavour in this refreshing beer.

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
