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.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - JUL 19, 2004
Light orangey hops tempered with biscuty malts. Sweet maltiness with balanced bitterness and a firm mouthfeel. Simple and satisfying. Finnishes with hops bread, and a little melon.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 On tap@O’brien’s: Burnt amber color with a very small (bar pour) head. Sweet fruity aroma with a hint of grass. Rich tangy start that bites the tongue balanced by the caramel malt and a lightly bitter-sweet finish. Crisp, smooth and clean. Nice.

hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 On tap in San Diego... This beer rocks!... Lightly hazy, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Stratus lacework. The aroma is of cascade hops, pine, grapefruit and light milk chocolate. The flavor is tangy and malty, but very well-bittered for balance. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, moderately bitter, dry finish. Yum! World class beer!

Decent, full-bodied APA. Typical Sierra Nevada hops in the flavor. Strong body, strong bitter finish. Decent looking dark golden body and a frothy head.

[draught] This is one killer APA - I was kind of expecting a clone of the Celebration Ale, but this certainly is not - a similar level of hoppiness, but this beer’s sweetness factor is much higher - fruity and malty, but there are no stereotypical citrus flavors that you would expect from the style (more like cherries?)- quite creamy and chewy for the style - sticky, yet balanced finish - I think Stone 7th an. is still the best APA I’ve had, but this ranks up there with Dark Star’s IMHO.

Man I am not a fan of pretty much anything Sierra makes, however this brew was very nice. Looked lovely. nice pale red bronze. Mountainous head which dissipated after a few minutes leaving a lovely lacing. Smells like pefection. Fruity and appetizingly bitter, and at the same time alnost peppery. On the forefront it is incredibly grapefruity. Like someone took a fistful of amarillo hops and shoved them into my coot. Malt body is quickly noticeable. Mouthfeel is great. A little too bitter in my opinion. could have been balanced better. Excellently fruity on the back end. All in al a good brew. If they’ve got it you should try it. G-rat

mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Out of the draft at the Avenue, SC, ca.. quite a brew. Most definately the best american pale ale i’ve tried. Poured an rich amber color, with a thick, creamy white, bubbly head. Smelled of really well balanced hops/malts. layered fruityness was the most distinguishing aroma. Pungent taste, tasted more hoppy after every sip. Sticky too. The lacing was unbelievable, when the brew was done, all sides were completely coated with the milky head. I want a keg of this beer. The most interesting and well balanced pale ale by far, loonz.

Spicy hops, pine and resin. Orange citrus with a malt finish. Could stand a bit more malt in the first assault.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2004
Draught. Beautiful copper color with a thick one finger head. Very hoppy (in a good way) with a medium bitter flavor. Medium lacing. Finish is slightly bitter with a hint of pear. A very clean tasting beer.

This beer is nice and hoppy like most S.N. products but is distinctive. The hop taste is more refined and pleasant than the SN Pale Ale (some people complain). It also is more malty and creamy than the Pale Ale. The flavor is full and the palate is extremely high with tastes. Overall it is a nice alternative to the Pale Ale, though harder to find. Only have seen it in the Gingerman here in Houston (actually on special), which is beer heaven for us Texas folk.
