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.

Bottle. Pours with a more copper color than expected from an IPA. Very nice aromas of fresh hops and resins, great flavors of piney hoppiness and floral compoments but also some caramel and malts to offset the strong hops. This is more complex than a typical wet hop ale.

Kudos to Sierra Nevada for an excellent IPA. A deep copper body capped by a small but adequate beige head gave off strong aromas of grafefruit hops laced with hints of pine and caramel sweetness. Full-bodied, crisp and clean, titillating the tongue. The flavor was nicely balanced between the hops and the malt with the sweetness and bitterness working to enhance the other rather than compete for attention. A very well crafted beer.

Reddish copper, huge off white head, great lacing, entire glass is coated. Aroma is huge pine resin, faint floral/citrus. Big caramel backbone. Flavor is overwhelmingly resinous, pine and oily astringency. Malt profile seems bitter as well. Mouthfeel is oily smooth, could use a tad more carbonation. Flavor really kills this for me.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Pours copper with a off white head. Aroma of grass, floral, piney hops and dough malt. Taste is earthy and musty malt with a nice flowery, juicy, piney hop flavor, but not bitter. Nice balance. 2014 re-rate: Seemed more subdued in the hops and that they were a touch spicy this year. The caramel malt came through more or it was the type of hops used.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2007
From the tap at the Newtown Brewfest. Poured a copper color with thin head. Nose was full of floral/earthy hops. Flavor was grassy hops with a caramel malt sweetness and a bitter hop finish, but not real bitter. The flavors worked real well together to create a well balanced ale. Delicious!

Pours clear reddish amber with nice creamy frothy head. Aroma is woody, candied orange, sappy, and piney. Flavor is earthy, woody, piney, sappy, and grapefruity with a twinge of orange syrup. It is what it says it is but isn’t my fav type of hops. Still very good.

22oz. This one struck me as amazingly fresh. Pours a clear amber/orange with a white head that heads out the door quickly. Loads of fresh hops, at first I was disappointed in a relative lack of malt... but by the end I was struck by how drinkable this one is, with a relatively decent finish. May come back to this one.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
24oz. bottle. Poured copper/orange with a medium white head. Subtle aroma of piney hops and flowers. Flavor is initially malty, but well-balanced and fading to a crisp citrusy hop bitterness. Very smooth and easy to drink. Enjoyable.

jasonp (1566) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2007
24 oz. bottle (thanks kmweaver!). Pours clear dark copper with a thick, off-white head. Toastiness, light marijuana, floral wet hops and a whiff of tropical fruits in the nose. Flavor starts with strong toffee malt backbone, wood then plenty of resinous pine, grapefruit and tea. Ample, yet non-harsh bitterness, moderate sweetness. Medium, creamy body with moderate carbonation level. Good.

Tap at Max’s. Dark amber body with a medium sized white head. The nose is lightly sweet and floral with grapefruit, light caramel, cotton candy and tangerine. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter with grapefruit, orange, cotton candy and caramel. Medium body is soft with light carbonation. Very nice.
