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.

Bottle. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Okay first off I’m 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. It’s 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 it’s punch after some time in the bottle.

Nice and lively beer, with a great nose. Light cloudy yellow, with a nice off white head. Palate is a bit thin, with a slightly funny yeast character... But immensely quaffable, and a good session beer.. although not at the price...

Oakes (13931) - 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.

A beautiful pale copper/gold colour with a bright white, fluffy head. Not much lacing. Smells really unique - fruity and sour; grapefruit, passion fruit and limes. Drinks well - really smooth but not.partocularly flavorsome. Interesting hop profile - slight pine and lemon taste, a little underdone for mine. Not as dense as I’d like, but smooth and coats well. Good carbonation.

Shark_Pants (501) - 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.

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!
