COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each fall, hops reach their peak flavor- bursting with aromatic oils that give ales layers of complex flavor and aroma that can only happen at harvest time. For us, fall comes twice a year- once in each hemisphere. This Harvest Ale features "wet" or un-dried whole-cone hops from Yakima, WA that are plucked from the bine and delivered to our brewery within 24 hours of picking.

Huge floral hoppy note -fruity orange,grapefruit,pineapple,passionfruit take a backseat here -surprisingly spicy -well carbonated -strawberry and middling hop bitter (for the style) finish really nice IPA. a 50-60% higher price than other top IPAs though. i also wish i couldve gotten this fresher (was right around 120days),mightve improved it more.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of citric and piney hops, slightly stale, with some slightly caramelly malt. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit caramelly, and slightly stale citric and piney hops, with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

thewolf (11555) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle, bought @YNWA Beershop, Kolding. Pours clear dark chestnut golden with a large, staying, frothy off-white head. Aroma has sweet malts, light caramel, grass, grapefruit, pine. Low carbonation, dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine sweet malts, light caramel, some grass, solid bitterness, grapefruit, piney hops. Fine.

jflopsu (841) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Pours a clear gold. Has a faint grain and light citrus hop aroma. A grainy flavor with malts, caramel, hops, and an overall earthy dry taste. Tasted more like a mix of random things than a true IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 Bottle @ YNWA Beershop, Kolding. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head. Lots of pine and bread. Aroma hops are old school but the beer is very tasty. Dry, bitter, oily, stiicky and quaffable. Pine ’N Resin. Good!
