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. 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.

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.

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.

22oz. Very excited to find this at the local store. Did not disappoint. Darker in color than expected. Imagine their 20th Celebration Ale with more hops and you get this ale. If I were stranded on a desert island and I had 100 cases of this ale with me I would be a hoppy man! Extremely quaffable and satifying!

24 oz bottle, 11th edition 2007 harvest. Pours amber in color with white head. Aroma mix of floral and pine hops. Taste hoppy and lite malt with clean finish.

Great beer. I could enjoy this one a regular basis. The 24 oz. bottle was a plus as well. Pretty cheap at 3.50 for that size!

Light ruby color, lasting white head with fine bubbles. Pretty beer. Earthy aroma with pine, cinnamon, citrus. Fairly tasty, just a hint of grassiness. Smooth finish. Good stuff.

24 Oz 2007 Bottle. Musky, pungent aroma, dank with cold lemongrass soup, spiced tea, and waxy hop resins. Subdued and wet. Pours a clear, standard amber, rimmed with rocky and separating maple foam. Flavor rushes into a much more delicate and explosive flavor profile. Rich grasses, sweet pines, and fragrant, burgeoning citrus rinds, and candied flower heads. Sweet, sticky, and round. Light peppery bouquet. Malt works in nicely, with some toothy Munich caramels, lightly toasted seeds, and washing, warm bready sugars. Clean, with bits of mineral residue. Back end holds a more bitter tendency, but bright with Meyer lemon reduction, candied lavender and a brief interlude of higher, soapy alcohols. Sprightly, fresh and balanced. Aroma weighed down from the wet hops, I’m imagining, but the flavor expectedly delightful. Maybe a nip thin for an IPA, but yet so drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 24oz. Appearance is amber with white head. Aroma is hoppy with plent of pine and some citrus. Very fresh. Hoppy bitter pine taste. Carbonated and creamy mouthfeel.

2007 Bottle. Aroma was very potent. Nice floral smell and a scent of must. The flavor was strong and very up front. The hops were really all over the place and at times seemed like a hop mess. It is an intresting beer and though it may have some flaws I did enjoy it.
