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.

Pours a beautiful copper with a HUGE foamy head. Not a great deal of aroma, some pine. Wow, a very hoppy taste, bitter, sweet and malty. I think this may be a new favourite

kevinator (1139) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Top notch. Great piney and citrus aromas. Really nice caramel color with decent lacing. Good weight with a very complimentary carbonation. Big flavors of hops with a continual bitterness that was balanced and not overly harsh.

sawbuck (382) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Mild aroma of hops, some notes of chestnut and a hint of spice and fruit. Nice red color with a huge tan head. Rich malt up front....rich sweetness that is not overpowering. Great texture. Caramel and some hidden cinnamon come through on the finish. Bitterness is even and mild. Older bottle so fresh hop taste has probably faded. Almost creamy mouth feel...nice. Finish is slightly dry with a nice balance of bitter and sweet.

Saeglopur (606) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 1, 2015
710 ml bottle from bier-deluxe.de, bottled 09/24/14.
Deep amber, hazy body, with a big, quite stable, lacing, creamy, light yellow head.
Lovely, fresh aroma of grapefruit, flowers, lychee, berries, pine, resin, some sweet malts, slight soap.
Taste follows this, with a nice, restrained biscuit malt backbone.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, quite dry, zesty, piney and subtly sweet malty.

Tasty! Typical, lovely wet hop aromas, but also with a resinous hop bite, balanced by smooth malts. Great IPA, but still not my favourite one from Sierra Nevada.

Bottled 09/24/14. Amber, light brown color. Almost no head. Very light grassy fresh hop flavor. Little grapfruity, grassy taste. Nice body. Too much bitterness.
