COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied ale which uses our estate grown cascade, centennial, and chinook hops in the kettle boil. Flowery hoppy nose, and aggressive hop on the palate will make this a favorite of anyone who loves our humulus lupulus dosed ales. A draft-only riff on an English Pale Ale hopped with estate wet hops. Served only at our taproom at the brewery. The name comes from the address of the taproom, hop field, and brewery located on 20th street in Chico.

"Sierra Nevada dual beer tasting Abby, Ben & I had a 24 oz. Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest Ale "fresh hop ale" (Spring 2008 release) side by side with a Sierra Nevada 12th release Harvest Ale "wet hop ale" (fall 2008 release). Although they were significantly different in character, we each had a hard time deciding which was better. The concensus was that the wet hop ale was smoother, with a better mouthfeel, and the fresh hop ale was more bitter & slightly more aromatic. All 3 of us gave a slight edge to the 12th release wet hop ale, scored as follows... Ben 12th Ann. Wet Hop B SH Fresh Hop B Abby 12th Ann. Wet Hop B+ SH Fresh Hop B Chris 12th Ann. Wet Hop B+ (ever so close to an A-) SH Fresh Hops B So...both were good beers for hopheads...the fall release wet hop ale averaging a B+, and the fresh hop ale getting a B from each of us. The scores I gave were particularly high considering I’m not a HUGE Sierra Nevada Fan. There is a common thread in all their regular beers that make them seem very unspectacular...but I am finding that many of their seasonals & special releases are a whole ’nother story. 2009 release-price goes way up (nearly $10) still good but not quite worth the coin good, but not overly impressive in subsequent releases.

Draft. Clear golden amber, with a white head. Grassy hops, some bitterness, earthy, bready malt, light citrus, and light caramel. Pretty dry, nice drinkable and tasty.

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Grassy hops and malt aroma and taste with a creamy palate and well balanced.

A very nice light hop floral aroma. Orange-dirty brown in color. A simple pale ale in intensity, this is good, but really seemed similar to the flagship pale ale to me. Had on tap at Pizza Port San Clemente!
