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.

Beautifully yellow clear with big white sturdy head. Smells like lemons with some grassy notes. Very fresh and light. Tastes a bit healthy. Very good pale with low bitterness and sweetness. Very delicate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was beginning to wonder when Bridge Rd would really really nail one and they have with this. Lovely citrus hop aroma leads in to a nice mix of tropical fruits - passionfruit and mango predominantly. Balance is good and there is a nice balanced bittering finish. Very reminiscent of the Knappstein Lager which is not a bad thing at all!!

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.

Pale gold pour with a thick, fluffy white head. Fruity, grassy, passionfruit and citrus aromas. Taste is malt, a little citrus, but not much else going on.

330mL bottle 2012 harvest, pours a clear almost straw colour but the aroma is amazing.. smells like fresh cut grapefruit/mandarin/orange wow. Those aroma’s really flow through to the flavour and they all mingle well, very low level of pale malt flavour and this makes the hops shine! i see so much potential for this hop.

Jado (635) - 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.

Had this on tap at the Wheatsheaf, Adleaide througha hopinator stuffed with an experimantal Australian hop. the aroma was big, herbal and fruity hop character with some quite complex floral notes too. A clean, quite pale in colour beer with the added hop hit from the hopinator. Nicely done!
