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.

ON TAP at Sierra Nevada Brewery on a trip down. Ver worth while because I had this beer one of my all time favorites. Nice orange cooper color with an emormous citrus hop nose flavor. Malt flavor of 2-for or 6 row barley. Excellent Overall Palate and flavors balanced with the hops. Bitterness was perfect with restraint as some west coast do not. they kept it in line with the overall beer. If I were to grade it...oops I will above. BESTEST OF BEST

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2011 On tap: I was served this ale in a sierra nevada pint glass and to tell the truth i thought i was served their celebration ale because of how much hops i could smell. I guess thats all there ales though. Anyways, bright orange gold color with a perfect topping of head. Flavor was bitter and full of hop. I wonder if it could of have been as good from a bottle as it was draft? (2006) Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick development of fluffy foamed head while the liquid was a golden honey color. As for the aroma, my nose is able to pick up signature Sierra Nevada hops that have a pleasant scent of pine and ripe grapefruit while also smelling earthy and of rich moist soil. The flavor is mild with a soapy flavor accompanied with a light squeeze of citrus and again with notes of earth. Has a natural and organic taste and a much rounder balance than their regular pale ale but maybes that’s why I thought this recipe is too tamed. (2010)

Pours an amber/orange color with a thin white head comprised of varying sized bubbles. Some lacing is left on the pint glass as the beer is consumed. The aroma is very well balanced. Citrus hop smells mingle nicely with malt notes of toffee. For an APA, the flavor is even more well balanced. While there is a nice woody, earthy malt character, the hop profile is very long and finishes with a crisp hop bitterness that is very refreshing. This pale ale has a bit of size and effervescence in the mouth but it tapers off and finishes very soft. This, along with the crisp hop tail, make it very refreshing.

I was very surprised to see this at one of our locals I had never seen it anyway in Georgia. This beer has a nice hoppy aroma with pine and orange. I couldn’t really tell that this was brewed with "green hops". The aroma was very similar to Celebration, but not as hoppy. There was excellent lacing and a nice, firm head. The body was clear with a nice amber.orange color. There was moderate hop bitterness initially that became stronger. There was more of a malty smell and flavor than Celebration. The finish was long. It has a medium dry mouthfeel with a good bit of carbonation

On tap at brewery Golden in color with a nice lacing white head. The aroma is bready malt dominated with a slight floral hop scent hanging out in the background. The flavor is similar with a toasted bread flavor balanced with some hop bitterness. The beer has deep deep body body and a nice lingering aftertaste. This was the best made beer I had on this trip to Sierra Nevada

On tap at Humpy’s. This was a very attractive pint with golden amber liquid topped by a lasting beige/white head that left very sticky lacing on the glass. Pine hop forward nose. This beer had a very fresh, hot hop sense to it. Lots of orange peel, pine and some apple. The finish is very bitter, dry and long. Enjoyable hop head beer.

Tap. An amber reddish pour. Very light and sweet tasting. Not much aroma but finishes amazingly with a slight hop taste.

On Tap at Bitter Creek Ale House: Dark, clear amber color with an off-white head. It has a sweet hoppy aroma with a crisp bitter taste and a great overall aftertaste. Yummy!

draft at Naja’s place: Light copper color with medium sized white head. Aroma is very faint, a touch of citrusy hops peaks out. Flavor is full of herbal and spicey hops, with a touch of honey and malt, and a solid bitterness in the finish. Very nice, but not amazing.
