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.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2007 24oz bottle. Pours a half-finger, off-white head which lingered throughout the drinking. Great lacing on the glass. Clear golden/copper color. Aroma was of hops, but did not pick up any citrus. Taste was of wet hops and a bit soapy. Medium to thick mouthfeel. Could not taste any citrus either. Some bitterness throughout and on the aftertaste.

This is what a "wet" hop ale should be. The nose is filled with hops, and is peppery. Pours a brilliant amber with nice white head, and great lacing. The flavor is crisp and balanced almost perfectly. A true hop lovers beer.

Great spicy hop aroma. Very intense and pleasing. Amber body with a tall fluffy cloud of a head that leaves gorgeous webs of lacing on my Sam Adams glass (perfect use for it!). Flavor is a nice balance of bitter hoppiness and sweet malt with a pleasant hop finish that isnít overpoweringly bitter. Feels thin but satisfying.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Clear golden brown with a big frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit zest, pine needles and lemon grass. Light grassiness, restrained bitterness, but nice citrusy hop flavor. Clean crisp finish with a light woody hop bite. A very nice refreshing IPA.

Bottle. Pours a deep copper color and very clean/clear with a decent white head that left substantial lacing. Very nice hop bitterness and flavor. I sense more malt in the aroma than hops, but plenty of hop presence overall. It has a solid malt core, but the hops balance nicely so that the malt isnít overwhelming. This is the kind of beer that a hophead can enjoy in place of over-malty Octoberfests. This is one of the better brews from Sierra Nevada.

Nephilium (1572) - Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Interesting grassy/citrus aroma. It pours a clear copper with about a finger and a half of craggy white head. Nice crisp hop flavor, with a long bitter finish. Nicely balanced.

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. Itís got a nice big hop flavor and the aroma is really nice. Itís 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 Iím dying to get more of.
