COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This liquid dream pours a hazy golden orange straw color with a large puffy white two-finger head. First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones.

Pours a cloudy orange. Medium head that is stable. Smells floral with a grainy edge. Taste of pine and grapefruit. Bitterness is sharp and lingers. Has a sweet taste but finishes dry.

Bottle; nose is full of floral aromas. Juicy/fruity explosion of flavor. Great hop utilization. Might be the best IPA I've had!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tectactoe (1716) - Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Tap: Vibrant, golden-yellow color with decent clarity, only a mild chill haze throughout. A small, white head stretches to a film & collar atop the brew. Aroma is hoppy as hell; very pure, pungent, dripping wet. Floral, weedy, like fresh cut grass with the dew still on it. Some citric peel notes in the back. Very "green" & fresh. Taste is the exact same way, delivering a lovely level of freshness that is noticeable with each sip. Wet, grassy, floral, weedy hops... Like sicking on a wet hop. A hint of white pepper & orange peel in the periphery, but this one is all about raw hop flavor. Lightly sticky, crispy finish. A very good IPA from Founders, showcasing hops in one of their purest forms.

bottle from a friend up in wisconsin- you are not on the site, but thanks to Jarrod for this. Hazed light orange body with- just as the description says up above- a puffy white two finger head. could smell the hop aroma as i was pouring this. pine and citrus are what i pick up. milder hop flavor than anticipated from the nose. honey malt with a watermelon taste. orange citrus hop notes dominate the bitterness. enjoyable now, bet was stellar 2 months ago. will definitely reach out for more of this come the fall so i can enjoy this fresh the way it is intended.

The best made wet hop ale out there. A hop head’s dream, this beer is exactly what an IPA should be. Piney and grapefruity, chewy resiny hops without it being annoying or too over the top. Delicious.

Tortman18 (187) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2014
From 10/8/2013. Pours a hazy copper with a finger of off white head that lingers into a thin cap. Decent amount of lacing and carbonation. Nose is very resinous and hoppy with a slight amount of sweet citrus. The mouth is very similar. A lot of citrus and piney hops with a decent amount of malt. Some bitterness that leaves a dry, but pleasant finish.

The Harvest Ale pours a mostly cloudy bronze yellow with an off-white head that lasts a bit and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is citrus with bread. The flavor is citrus and bread. Overall this is a pleasant beer and I would like more.

On tap served in a pint glass. Pours a clear, brilliant gold with with awesome head retention and lacing. Aroma is very piny and earthy with just a touch of citrus coming through. Lots of Earthiness in the taste with bread and light pine. Bitterness is on the high side leading to a crisp and drying finish. Overall, really an awesome beer that brilliantly showcases what a hop harvest beer should be. One beer I really wish was available to me locally.
