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 Old Chicago. Was copper color with a nice chunky off white head. Tasted like an oktoberfest with a ton of bitterness, way too bitter for me.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 On tap @ underbar chicago: pours an orange amber with a smooth tan head. Nice hop aromas grapefruit, pine, citrus, sweet, well balanced. Carmel tangerine grapefruit citrus flavors good amount of sweet to balance that piney grassy bitter finish. A very nice APA. 8/4/8/4/16 = 4.0

24oz bottle at Kan Presents: Fresh Hops. Pours an amber with a frothy offwhite head. Aroma is light, toasted touch of green grass and floral notes. Flavors of toasted biscuit malts, citrus, lots of grass and bitterness. The lasting green bitterness is solid. But otherwise not much going on. 7/3/7/3/14 = 3.4

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Tap. Transparent and bold copperish-amber in color with a dense, café-frothed head riding a third of an inch high. Aroma is a sweet hop treat from heaven. Cherry wax over grahams, strawberry caramel, tangerine cobbler, green tea and lemon grass fornicating with hop leafs. Oily honey resin and amaretto over strawberry-coated oats transitions the nose to the mouth. Orange cotton blossom lightness does a nice balancing act with the semi-juicy hop enclave. Wonderful effervescence is met with tangerine and grapefruit melodies. Kiwi green hop bitterness and flavor hop spin offs produce mandarin pulp properties, eventually turning into a fruit gel that sucks the glands so they beg for more beer. Dry cotton mouth and a Downy sweet dryness activate at the corners of the tongues flap. A blast of dewed-on spring grassiness takes over in the finish.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2006
On tap at Tyler’s in Carrboro, NC. Was really looking forward to trying this. Was not disappointed. Huge hop aromas and flavor. Very fresh hop juice. Delish. Beautifully bitter and well balanced with a dash of sweet malts. Definitely emphasizes the hops but in a very refreshing manner. Will now compete with Bigfoot for my favorite SN product. Delish.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - NOV 19, 2006
On tap poured a pale amber color with a nice head. Aromas of fresh hops with a good amount of malt. The taste had a bold hop profile with a nice malt balance. Overall one of the best SN beers made.

Wonderful delicate white fruit and resin nose. Herbal and spicy on the palte with a soft whitepepper note. Clean and round mouthfeel, a wonderful brew.

Very hoppy. Coppery color, not much aroma, but lots of malt and tons of hops in the taste. Great beer.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 In short: A creamy caramelized fruity IPA. Highly highly drinkable.
How: Bottles, tap, many times. This re-rate for the 12th Harvest release. My favourite so far
The look: Almost clear golden-orange body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Superb nose of aromatic leafy hops and fresh grass. Slightly toasted caramelized malts. The body is rather creamy and that gives it a sensation of a crème caramel. Hops, hops and more hops. Very juicy hops. Caramelized oranges, caramelized citrus, caramelized pineapples. Just a perfect integration between the caramel and the fresh fruity hops. Some peppery notes. I was let down by some previous versions of the SN Harvest but this 12th Harvest has renewed my faith in this product. Not that beer is a religion or anything. And if I wanted a taste of religion I’d bite a priest.
