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.

A really dark Pale Ale of a beautiful golden-red. Smells of fresh hops. Taste is smooth and hoppy. Quite an amazing beer, really. Complex in itís simplicity...

on tap at fat jacks 12/28/4. dark red, my companions thought that this was definately ímore of a dark beerí but whatever. carmel, nicely hoppy, well balanced. i can see why this is a highly rated american pale ale. of course i wouldnt seek this out too often having such easy access to alpha king.

Dark copper/bronze colour. Another big hoppy beer. I didnít realise it was made with green hops, but that certainly comes through. All the usual US hop character - pine, resin, floral notes, grapefruit, tropical fruit etc etc - in generous quantities. And its really fresh and juicy. Unlike some big hop beers, this retains a sense of decorum and, whilst not exactly subtle, it does have a touch of malt and other nuances that lend a touch of subtlety. Bitter, but in an assertive, rather than aggressive, way. Really nice. On tap at the Green Leafe Cafe, Williamsburg.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Tap @ Bennos. Copper color with a moderate off white head. toasted malt and mild citric hops. Toasted malt flavors dominate the front. Crisp and a touch sharp in the finish. Long and lingering hops acidity in the finish. Had the Celebration following and, while this ia very drinkable, just not up to the balance and flavors in the SNCA.

Nice hoppy well rounded hop and citrus friut aroma very smooth mouthfeel hop and hay taste, surprisingly full bodied yet as smooth as a nitro. Hard to fault will probaly rate higher if the next one is as good

Rich, hoppy flavor with a thick sweet/tart finish. I was very impressed with this beer.The citrusy hop bite came through in a big way.

darker than the pale ale and with more flavor. but still similar to other s-n beers. the body has deeper flavors of citrus. it begins smooth and becomes bitter. avobe average for sn

On tap @ Loganís Alley, Amber with a nice medium beige head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice citrus hop (grapefruit,lemon) flavor balanced nicely by a caramel malt backbone, leading to a nice bitter hop finish.
