Pours a cloudy copper color, after rotating the bottle to stir up the sediment in the bottom. Nice foamy white head lasts a while. Great hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and pine. Very similar in taste, lots of hops with some malt. Quite bitter on the finish, with a hint of soapyness, but not in a bad way. Actually overall very good.

(from notes) Average copper color appearance, Dank, sticky aromas, and a pile of well done hops. Superbly hoppy, not overdone on bittering hops, unique and interesting hop character full of heady citric and resinous notes.

Beautiful lace from just off-whtie head, hazy pale-orange beer. Grapefruit, and sucade fruit, fresh C-hops but not overwhelming. Beautiful real yellow grapefruit flavour, very fresh and mild-bitter. Wow, this is great, as it gives freshness, even when aged a bit. Quite carbonated, even titillating MF, medium bodied. Great hoppy beer, having kept up great. Many thanks to Dirk & Leen

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very aromatic, even as soon as you open the bottle. Lots of floral and citrus hops, appealing. Dark orange and cloudy, not filtered! Lots of malts at first with a very nice bitter hop finish. Finishess quickly without any linger bitterness. Makes it a very nice session IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Bottle shared by Taverner, pours hazy pale orange with almost no head. Nose is ganj like hops. The flavor is quite mouth puckering bitter, with a smooth nutty finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 After popping the top I could smell the floral notes flowing out of the bottle. I love this IPA. Full of hops, fresh hops, with their characteristic spiciness and floral notes. This is a hop bomb for the hop lover. It’s a little bland on the aftertaste - but that’s ok. Pours hazy golden with thin white head. SECOND ANALYSIS: This is hands down, the best Harvest IPA you can get.

Thanks to the ever dapper <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=1 for the pours -
It poured a hazy golden orange with a bubbling off-white head. The aroma was intense with sharp grapefruit, lemon zest, a bit of pine... and had a suggestion that sweet caramel lay underneath it all. Very nicely unbalanced flavor to this hop-head, almost tasting like a DIPA. The finish was a prolonged citric bitterness with a few shakes of pepper.
