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.

24 oz bottle: Aroma is hop heavy with a nice floral and citrus aroma. Pours a copper/golden color with a large sized foamy white head that lingers. Taste has a pungent hop characteristic, bitter, woodsy, and a bit of citrus. Palate is lightly bitter, but short lived. Overall, Pretty good IPA. It’s got a nice big hop flavor and the aroma is really nice. It’s decent I would buy it again if I got the deal that I got, but not a stellar IPA just above average overall.

22oz bomber. For a beer that claims to be a fresh hop ale I detect very little hops in the ale. The aroma is very malty, caramel malts with the faintest of hops aroma. The taste is heavy on the malts as well with very little hop bitterness to it. Disappointed in this ale, name was very deceiving to me.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2007 Pours a nice ruby amber with a good sized lasting off white head in a tulip. Piney, chemical cleaner like hops aroma. After it warms, some bitter unripe pecan like nuttiness too. Taste is pretty similar to smell. Kind of piney, fairly bitter, and astringent like hop taste. Nicely carbonated and nice body. Sharp, dry metallic bitterness but a faint earthy sweetness in the finish as well. Overall a hoppier than average IPA that has a unique character about it. Good, but not something I’m dying to get more of.

nice fresh hop flavor and aroma. piney hops. no citrus. this one has a pretty dry finish. overall a very solid fresh hop ale. I like this style, but it would not be my everday choice

pours crystal amber with off white fluffy head and nice lacing. If a beer ever smelled like a season this is it. Aroma of fresh hops and falling leaves. caramel, rye and hops. extremly clean finish win a thin palate.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Amber color. Smell of hops, grass, pine, minor grapefruit, malt, rye and leafs. Smelled like a nice autumn day. Taste of hops, pine, grass, malt, light caramel, rye and a nice hop bitterness at the end. Hardly no citrus taste at all. Mouth was coated with oil from the hops. This was almost as good as the Celebration ale.

Braudog (5998) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Draft at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver. Pure amber color with an initial head of foam that settles into a thin veil. Aroma is orchardy and full of fall fruits. Same for the flavors -- Apple, tangy corn-candy, sticks around in your mouth like sugar candy, sweet and festy. (#3141, 10/13/2007)

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2007
on tap @ papago...pours orange/amber with a fluffy tight head that slowly fades. aroma is mostly piney hops with some caramel thrown in. flavor is exactly the same with a creamy mouth feel. dry/bitter finish sticks around for a while. nothing special or complex...just hops and malt, nice!

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2007
bottle- overwhelming piney aroma. found the beer to be extremely resinous, spicy (when I was expecting more of a citrus hop flavor), and well done. Enjoyed it very much.
