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.

Draft. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy giving it notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is also sweet and very hoppy - giving it notes of grass and grapefruit, but also with note of caramel. I also had this bottle, where I found it had lost some character, bottled scores 6/3/7/3/13=3.2

Beautiful amber color, with creamy head. It has a hop aroma with caramel, and a caramel with hop flavor, a lot of caramel indeed. Some resins. Less hop surprise than promised, but pleasant.

2007-11-02, Papsoe Blind Tasting, 7-5-7-5-15=39
Hazy copper color, nice head. Even if not too strong, the aroma is nice, hoppy, a bit fruity and in minor key earthy too, there is also a touch of rubber. Quite good body strength, strong caramel and toffee flavor, and the powerful hopping immediately kicks in, with its character, quite resiny fruity and earthy. Enjoyable.
