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.

drowland (7881) - Georgia, USA - APR 9, 2016
4/9/16. On tap at World of Beer - Destin. Lightly hazed golden pour with a small off-white head, mild lacing. Big citrus pop in the nose, lemon peel even. Okay flavor, grainy, citrus. The big citrus punch combined with high, fizzy carbonation sort of makes it taste like Sprite.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2009
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.

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...
