4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Ultra-fresh hops from the Yakima Valley packed into a brew with a large enough malt body to support them. What could be better than that? If you love wet hops, Harvest has all the qualities you could hope for. Dankness, juiciness, oils, resin, grassy notes, sticky (bitter)sweetness, and intense aromatics. People who aren’t usually fans of Sierra Nevada’s fans might be pleasantly surprised by the restrained bitterness and lower-than-average ABV. For the initiated, there are no surprises here. A great hop feast by Sierra Nevada. Go figure.
