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: DEC 31, 2007 On tap at the Sharp Edge Beer Emporium. Has a mild sweet strong ale aroma that seems like itís gonna kick. Ever so slightly darker than the ubiquitous pale yellow beer. Tea froth head. Barely any carbonation. First taste is quite bitter and unrefined. Each sip leaves a bitter bite on the back of my throat. Much more than expected. Could qualify as an IPA, then oh, I see that it is! I thought this was a fest beer from the label. Perfumy aftertaste. Overall, a little too much for my girlie taste buds. Bitter lingering medicinal finish.

crystal clear orange amber with a nice white head that settles into a thin film. ok lacing. aroma......wow...just great fresh green hops. green almost piney hoppiness and grapefruit hint of caramel. a hint of cattiness. nice bittersweet caramel backbone leads you into the green piney grapefruit hoppy goodness that is to come. bittersweet grapefruit finish with a nice dose of caramel and pine. medium body. lively carbonation with a nice smooth mouth feel. well done. by far my favorite beer from this brewer.

A nice fluffy head, with pretty transparent caramel color. That is caramel/gold Iíd say. A nice hop smell with a slight hint of malts. Love the malt smell, but to tell you the truth I think they held back on the aroma hops. I do not know if they dry hopped this, but when I dry hopped a batch of brew it seemed to have the same effects, as far as lacking on the hop aroma, as I didnít think it would. I have heard Sierra Nevada dry hops a lot. The hops are pleasant and smell nice. Very hoppy taste. The hops are very ripe and fresh tasting. The hops are nice and bitter, not off or anything. The I.P.A.s are supposed to have a very hoppy taste, but I could use some malt taste in this beer. The beer is inbetween thin and creamy. Not a great palate, but average. For a Harvest Ale, I was hoping for a well rounded knock my socks of beer, all I got was an average I.P.A.

24 oz fat-shaped bottle. Pours a clear (not cloudy) dark amber color with a huge off-white foamy head... and nice lacing, i.e. thick chunks of foam that stick to the sides of the glass. Very pretty. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, bready, fresh... with a little bit of maple sweetness. Has a specific autumn-ish smell that I canít pinpoint, but it smells wonderful. Strong hop flavor... not overly bitter, well-balanced and smooth. Good brew. =)

24oz Bottle $4.99 Binnyís Orland Sierra Nevadaís Harvest Ale poured a crystal clear copper with moderate carbonation slowly creeps to the surface. A two finger extremely creamy and sticky white head formed on the pour. It was strange but the pour almost created a cascade effect, short lived but cool. Leaves big clumpy lacing. At first the aroma has a tough time fighting through the incredibly creamy head. When it subsides I get a little better idea of what Iím in for. Up front comes dripping pine sap with a squeeze of unsweetened grapefruit and lingering hop resin. After some warming a solid caramel backbone comes through to even things out a bit. Smooth caramel malt lays a perfect canvas for the true showcase of this beer, the hops. Fresh vibrant hops come across the palate creating a variety of flavors None overpowering the last and all in perfect harmony. Unsweetened grapefruit is swept aside by sweetened grapefruit and orange. The resiny somewhat leathery hops come through toward the middle easing out the citrus and leading into a lingering pine sap finish. An excellent fresh hopped pale ale. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation that keeps things lively without running its course too quick. Bitterness wasnít much at first but piles on itself sip after sip. I canít hardly drink this beer fast enough. Itís sip after sip without a problem. If Iím not careful it will be gulp after gulp. After reading reviews on Harvest Ale in the past I always hoped it would be bottled. Finally, the time is here. Itís too bad a brew like this canít be produced all year because I would buy it by the case. 10/9/07

This beer smells green. Copper colored IPA with a huge fluffy head and lots of sticky lace. The aroma is full of wonderful fresh hops with hints of tangerine and grapefruit. Moderate pine. Nice thick mouthfeel in this citrusy wonder of a brew. Improves more as it warms. Sticky and piney and bitter. Wonderful stuff.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours copper w/ a full, thick froth. Superb hangtime reducing slowly to a full fluffy ring and island spatter. Aromas of fresh, bright, crispy hops. Nice! Full nectar w/ creamy residual effers. Abundant citrus rind tempered by a dense caramel malt component. Beautifully balanced this specimen is exceptional. The finish is long and thirsty. Overall: I really like the sharpness of the hops. The balance is supreme. Highly recommended.

draft. This one has a nice alcohol warming (though not real high in ABV) but is smooth at the same time. A tough trick but SN pulls it off. There is a nice balance also of malt sweet and non-overpowering hops. This is not a west coast hop bomb but a more balanced treat for the tongue. My draft was served a little warm for the style, which I think impacts my rating. I would like to try this again when it is a bit cooler. Seems to have washed out some potential crispness that I like in a celebration or pale ale.

nearbeer (4391) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 24 oz, 11th edition-2007. Clear amber-orange with a huge sticky head that lasts; frosting everywhere. Initial aroma is nothing but fresh herb-citrus hop, but some rich sweet caramel peeks through later. Flavors of orange, honey, resin, grapefruit, granola cereal, bittersweet grasses. Wow - the light-medium body is oily and just about the smoothest ever. Surprisingly not very tingly or dry. Even though you can really taste the overboard hops, this beer has no harshness and somehow almost seems in balance.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 I thought this is a Pale Ale, no? Wow, the aroma is the best ever! Smells like really good fragrant ganja. Deep amber and clear. Really nice bitterness and a mouthful of hop flavor. Clean tasting, light, refreshing. Whatever style this is, itís awesome. [tasted next to a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (Bottle)] The Harvest is darker in color, and way more fragrant. I love the regular Pale but it actually tastes stale next to the Harvest.
