COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vermont Hop Harvest Ale is a celebration of fresh hops grown locally as part of an exciting renewal of hop farming in Vermont. These new hop fields are reminiscent of earlier days when the majority of domestic hops were grown here in the Northeast. This wonderful pale ale explodes a delicious hop aroma and such a fresh taste that you might feel as if you are enjoying a pint on one of the many new Vermont hop farms. It offers a tasty malt body wrap in the citrusiness of the hops. Open it up and enjoy this seasonal brew that has been both dry and "wet" hopped to highlight the Cascade variety hop. Pair this with fall specials such as corn on the cob, a spicy fresh chopped salsa with veggies from your local farmers market. You’ll find that a hoppy beer will pair well with spicy foods, full flavored cheeses like cheddar or blue, and nothing beats grilling with a cool Vermont Hop Harvest Ale in your hand. Enjoy,

Bomber thanks to Nick. Opaque peach/orange color with a decent off white head and lacing. Smell is grapefruit and bready malt. Taste follows but with a bit of melon to go along with it. Kinda strange. Slightly sticky mouth feel. Decent but I think this is slightly old.

Bottle/22oz - Pours a darkish amber in color with a very small white head that fades to nearly nothing. Aroma is of fresh grassy and citrus hops... little malt. Flavor is hoppy and quite bitter... fresh hops! Almost homebrew like...Yummy!

Bottle via Zane on the other site. Pours a nice orange with a frothy head. Aroma dissipates fairly quickly but is the best Rock Art aroma to date. Taste is more malt than hop which is unfortunate but does not completely detract from the flavor of this beer. A solid, fresh IPA but something that I would not seek out again. Much better than anything else I’ve had from them which really isn’t saying much.

22 pa. Bomber. Orangish color with a light white head. Bitterness overwhelms the palate. Drinkable just not that complex.
