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.

On tap at Najas Place, I decided to try a pint of this and wow, this is a great brew! Appearance was copperish and a creamy thick head. Aromas was definitely hoppy and sweet, with some malts maybe......Flavor was awesome, bitter sweet, but nice and smooth.

On Tap Nellos Pizzeria (10/04) Pours an inviting copper color with an inch thick head and very nice lacing. Great looking beer to start with. Aroma is bursting with fresh hops, sweetness, and some caramelized, malt notes. The hop flavor in this beer is just wonderful, notes of citrus, grass, pine all blend together with the darker malt elements of this beer perfectly. It makes a wonderful APA. So glad I was able to try this beer, at my local pizzeria of all places. Go Nellos!!

2004 Draught @ Redbones 11/04. Well well well, after 3 years of searching for this beer, here it is, in the pint in front of me. Not too bad looking for an APA, though to be fair, the Cisco I just drank looked much deeper, darker, and cloudier. This one was more of a yellow-cream color, with dark beige and light honey-orange tones. Small white head, mostly clear body. Aroma has hops, yes, and light yeast, but it is not hugely hoppy, nor extremely bitter. Fresh and light it is, with notes of tangerines, mint, pine sap and orange blossom honey. Flavor starts out restrained, interesting, I’m getting lots of sweet caramel malt and then the hops second, which are moderately bitter, but only lightly citric. A good dose of yeast is apparent, and is enjoyable, for me at least, as I’ve always liked Sierra Nevada’s yeast strain. Finish has a zip of carabonation, a good amount more citrus flavor (light lemon zest and oranges) and ends with a note of lightly toasted malt (probably caramunich or something similar). It’s a good deal sweeter than I expected, but has a very warm feel to it, with a medium body and a smooth consistency. Whereas Cisco’s Harvest is much sweeter and malt dominated, this has a thinner body, but showcases the green hops more effectively. A very good beer, to be sure.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2006 On tap at the Crescent Moon. Clear copper brown in color. No red overtones like the oktoberfest. Grassy and hoppy aroma. Nice load of bittering hops to the taste, malt is less than the Celebration. Maybe a little more balanced than say, the Wheat or Celebration, but not as tasty as either. Grapefruit hops plays out the strongest. This beer went fast at the Moon and was gone before you could say "1056." UPDATE: 6/23/6, Had this again on tap at Brewski’s in Fayetteville AR. Big nose candy aroma, sweet floral hops. Green fresh hops are present throughout this beer from beginning to middle to end. Sticks to your tongue.

On tap at Map Room. Very crisp hop nose, which also dominates the taste. Mostly just a bunch of hops thrown in. Found this to be lacking in many subtlties. Much like many of the overhopped beers one pint is fine, but anything more woudl destroy the palate.

kujo9 (1094) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2004
On tap: Coppery brown, orange highlights, w/ a lasting off white head. Citrusy and piney hops, bready toasted malt, light caramel sweetness in the aroma, also lightly fruity. Bitter and hoppy w/a semi dry finish. caramel and toasty malt flavor, citrusy hops in the finish & aftertaste. Well balanced by malt flavor, moderately fruity. Prickly higher carbonation(may be the establishments fault), sort of burns from carbonation, medium body, dry m/f. A very good pale ale, not my favorite style, but a very good representation.

Amber, with a good-sized white head. Floral & grassy hops in the nose. Medium sweet flavor, some caramel, backing up a big floral hop kick.

Sampled draught at O’Briens, San Diego.
Clear nut bown. Somewhat restrained grapefruity hop aroma. Clean straight forward malt profile. Lingering salty bitter finish.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Had on tap at Fatheads, Pittsburgh. Pours a beautiful reddish copper color with a some offwhite head that stays as long as you are drinking the beer. Aroma is very good mix of citrus and caramel. Flavor is strong bitter taste we all know and love, but much more mellow than celebration which I liked. Overall, very good pale ale, much better than celebration if you ask me.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 Newly bottled as Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale: Nutty sweetness and citrusy, leafy hops inhabit a crisp, prickly mouthfeel until resinous bitterness sets in. A beautiful quaffer, even though it’s 6.7% abv. 3.7/5

(On tap at Mug’s in November 2004): Cascadey panache hovering over bustling earthy caramel malts...Extremely generous mouthfeel remains quenchable and portrays the searing resinous bitterness with aplomb...A perfect pillowy balance of medium intensity earns this pale ale a comfortable royal position in the pantheon of the style...4.3/5

(On tap at Mug’s in November 2006): Subdued citrusy hops and caramel malts create a subtle balance...All is much too clean and understated to rouse any emotion...This is a shadow of the pint I had had at Mug’s last year, a huge deception...3.4/5
