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.

Jado (757) - 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.

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.

330ml Bottle. Big orange and citrus aromas. Hops from start to lingering finish. A very enjoyable beer.

Shark_Pants (580) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2015
Hazy gold pour with small head. Very fresh aromas from the wet hops of dried apricots, nectarines, tangerine and passionfruit. The taste has a lot of apricot, orange zest, toasted bread. Enjoyable but doesn’t quite live up to the aroma.

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!

Strong on hops, very floral aroma. Clear golden colour with lots of head. Some very nice fruit flavours, passion fruit mainly with bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.

DeliriumT (469) - 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

alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Deep brushy aromas of citrusy hops and a nice caramel malt background. Smells a dead ringer for Sierra Nevada PA. Flavor is really well balanced caramelly malt and citrusy hops. A little watery on the back, but a really solid beer. Immediately ordered another round for my colleagues and we’d run the bar out of it (and were quite dissapointed -which is the true test)

Gramoit (388) - 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.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 There’s a lot of sweet citrus on the nose, followed by very earthy notes (almost like a stale bag of chips) and then a lot of resin at the finish. All up, the aroma it’s a bit unpleasant for my taste. In the mouth there’s some orange flavour with a fairly restrained hop presence and more of that yeasty earthiness. There’s little of the hoppy bitterness you’d expect from a beer that bills itself as being hopped to the hilt, and it finishes a little short. 20 August 2012 - Had another bottle of this, not realising I’d had it before. I didn’t notice so much earthiness this time, and certainly no stale bag of chips, so I wonder if I got a bad bottle last time. That’s not to say I don’t get any yeast - certainly it’s still there. Other than that, the flavours were the same as last time. Still a little thin and short on the palate.
