Large white head, excellent retention, starts out normally then turns into a rocky inviting lump. Lacing is coating. Clear gold color. Fruity nose of citrus, grapefruity and peachy. Medium bodied, lightly oily on the palate. Pleasent fruit flavors, citrus, nicely tropical and melony with some caramel maltiness hanging in there. An almost dry fruity finish, good hop bite. Thanks to dirty_martini and SDbruboy for bombers of this groovy elixer. Thanks guys!

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Thanks to WeeheavySD for this one. Pours out a cloudy light orange color with a two to three finger thin and foamy head. Aroma is of pine and citrus hops. Taste is nice and hoppy with citrus and pine hops coming through, not many malts flavors going on, maybe a slight backbone. Nice bitter bite comes through on the finish. Solid...

Pours out a cloudy golden IPA. Great hoppy taste, not too much. Smooth finish. A very tasty drink-able IPA.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Thanks to dirty martini. Orange pour, small white head. Aroma is awesome huge citrus hops, orange and grapefruit. Flavor is same citrus hops. A big fresh leafy teast. Bitterness is semi high and works well with this basially hop juice. Thin mouthfeel and low on malts but high on carbonation. One-dimensional but it is what it is a straight IPA.

22 oz. bottle. Poured hazy orange with fluffy white head. Extensive lacing. Fresh cut oranges and lemons in the nose. Sharp, bitter finish. Very good, but not quite as good as other harvest ales.

Bomber tasted December 9th.

Pours a fairly light gold with a nice white head that fades fairly slowly and leaves a rich foamy lace along the sides of the glass. Huge candied grapefruit aroma, immensely juicy, just the faintest hint of skunk on the early pre-sip . Flavor is pretty straight-forward; no malt presence to speak of here, just the bittering grapefruit rind hops which come in best late. That’s fine, but it leaves the first half of the flavor profile tasting rather mild and watered down. Mouthfeel is slightly on the thin side, adding to the watered-down sensation.

I’d like to try this one fresh on tap. Here in the bottle, a couple of months old at least, it’s not as exceptional as I might have hoped.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 22 oz bottle thanks to a trade with lb4lb. Pours a hazy orange with a beige head. Nose and flavor show that it is very fresh. Juicy hops, lots of fruit. Grapefruit, tangerine, pine, lemon citrus, caramel. With a juicy hop bite that finishes floral/piney. A little sweet but balanced well. Really refreshing. 8/4/8/4/15 = 3.9

Bottle from Kan Presents: Fresh Hops - a blind tasting. Pours a clear yellow hay color with a white soapy head. Fresh aroma, citrus, juicy floral hops. Pale malts, citrus, grapefruit, with pine and grassy. Bitterness that is grassy and tasty. 8/3/8/3/15 = 3.7

MadIndian (2342) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Bottle from Capones, Sampled with Stegosaurus. A hazy orange pour with a definite up front hop aroma followed with some citrusy notes. A mild malty taste followed but floral pine. A little thin in the mouth but balanced ok. I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 22oz, no date. Hops up front include grapefruit rinds, spicy Chinook, and then a bit of grass in the background with a little bit of sweet caramel. Clear pale golden with a one finger creamy off-white head, pretty decent retention. Flavor has lots of grapefruit rind and tangerine up front with some bitter pine needles. Still present is the caramel, though the hops clearly are the highlight. Bitterness peaks around a 6, and though it does linger, the sweetness from the caramel malts keeps it at bay for the most part. The body is somewhat creamy, but would have been better if the body were a tad fuller. Moderate to light carbonation. Good stuff.
