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- 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.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 14, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2007 Bottle from City Beer Store in SF. Aroma of pine hops, resin, grass, with almost no citurs or floral. Taste is similar with lots of bitter pine hops, tingly hop finish. Almost no malt, quite dry. Good.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
24 oz bottle. This was nice. A clear bronze/golden color. Nice hoppy aroma, and very smooth and easy to drink. Reminded me alot of Celebration, if maybe not a little easier to drink.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Pours a clear orange amber with an inch of white head. Aroma is of moderate to faint grassy and floral hops with a hint of pine. In the mouth, itís more bitter than floral and pretty dry.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - OCT 14, 2007
2007/11th Edition 24oz. bomber, pours a beautiful clear copper with a foamy persistent three finger cream colored head, great lacing. Aroma is dewy grass, pine/resin, and lightly floral. Flavor is a tempered but effective hoppy bite, with a nice lingering grassy/spicy finish, only the slightest maltiness to tame the hops, but well balanced. Easily up there with Celebration, and another favorite SN brew; glad this got bottled this year so I have a chance to try!

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle (22oz). Clear copper pour, huge foamy beige lasting head. Big up-front hop aroma, conifer and citrus, slightly roast malt way in the background; a bit leafy. The taste is more resiny than I expected, dry, almost burnt bitterness, very light malt body, decent little kick of alcohol in the finish - the acidity builds slowly until itís noticeable. Light body, solid astringency/acidity, fairly quick finish, with a low-level acidic hop-bitter aftertaste. Really solid, Iím going back and buying a case!

pineypower (2736) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Tap at Caponeís. Pours a nice moderate copper color with a thin two finger white head. Aroma is all hops, mostly pine and slight citrus. Intense hop flavor, nicely balanced by a little lingering malt in the background. Overall pine and citrus hops shine through in a very nice combination. Very good.

bonbright7 (181) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. I noted the enthusiasm of the hops was tempered by the cool malty flavor after a great looking pour filled my pint glass. Even as the glass sat unattended, the taste remained strong with a bitter aftermath.

TheEpeeist (3545) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2007
24 oz bottle. Clear woody orange with a holding off-white head. Chunky rings of lace. Doughy, soapy with some spicy floral; mild malts. Slick and relatively thick with buzzy carb. Juicy orange and grapefruit with lime peel. You can feel the hops all over this but still soft. Numbing bready finish lingers with pith.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - OCT 14, 2007
On draft @ BSP. Pours a luscious dark amber orange with a punch of hops in the nose of all varieties: herbal, piney, grassy. More on the palate as a distinctly minty flavor develops towards the pleasantly bitter finish. However, the strong caramel malt backing helps balance this out, as well as not being overwhelmingly bitter. Better than I had expected.
