Pours clear golden with very little head. Fantastic hop aroma: citrus, honey, pine. Just takes your breath away. All hops on the flavor with a slick mouthfeel. This is beer candy. Nice bitterness. Great fresh hop!

Bottle: Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head that is mostly lasting with nice lacing. Mild hoppy aroma is citrusy with hints of lemon and orange. Initial flavor is like biting into a juicy grapefruit with a sourness that leads into a hoppy bite in the bitter finish. Well balanced and delicious!

On tap at Founders, and many bottles as well. Pours clear orange-golden with a medium off-white head. Big citrus aroma with light pine. Brilliant color and bright citrus aroma really set this apart from a typical, maltier "harvest" ale before even having a taste. Light-medium body and massive hop flavor: juicy citrus fruits, pine, and some subtle spicy and earthy elements. Lasting bitter finish. Rather refreshing and highly quaffable. This is an exceptional wet-hop/harvest ale.

Bottle pour..golden yellowish-orange with almost no head..fresh hop, juiciness shines through with mango..orange notes..aroma is unique-some spice in there?? is a good sign that this will be another fine offering from founders..mouthfeel and taste are spot on and just scream out fresh..quite refreshing and easily session style..this would go great with just about any food offering..bitterness is just right and leaves a very pleasant coating that works well..Glad to have found what seemed like the last bottle around..!!

12 oz - If I was trying to explain to someone how a beer could be refreshing AND flavorful, I would give him a bottle of this. Enough hops to keep it interesting, enough malt for flavor.

Drank it right out of the bottle. Canít give much on appearance, but guessed it was probably pretty nice. Great wet hop flavors & aftertaste. Love the lingering hop pine / oil flavors. Darn nice.

Bottle shared by Darrell...again. Thanks man!
Served in a Russian River "TION" glass.
The beer is orange and mostly clear, with a small white head that leaves sparse lacing in itís wake. The aroma is of dank hops, with fresh citrus, herbal, and floral notes. Wonderful, though lacking strength. The taste...wow. Fabulous. So fresh. Glass almost gone already. Oops, got a little too excited there. Fresh hops, not much malt...superb. Founders Harvest Ale showcases hops brilliantly with this autumn release. A must try.
