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.

Tried this at the Brewery in Chico. It is hopped with 24 hour old hops. And they do come threw. It has more crytal then there PA with some grapefruit and pine. Nice mouth feel for a regional brewery. Wish they would bottle and distribute this one.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2007
A sweet toffee/caramel malt arom accompanied by a subtle sour citrus hops aroma. Pours dark orange with a 1 inch beige head. A nice sweet and creamy malt flavor with a small funky citrus hop balance. I might liken the hop aroma and flavor to sweatsocks, as there was no real pine or grapefruit citrus going on. Finishes dry. It reminded me of their Pale Ale to tell the truth. I thought it was very similar.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2008 <b>On tap @ the SD Brewing Co.</b> and a 2008 24 oz. bottle - Pours a clear copper color with a small off white head. Light lacing. Aroma and flavor is citrus, herbal, and pine hops and caramel malt. Light to medium body. A nice beer.

Very nice! It was a nice combination of malts and hops. Mixed in with some grapefruit, lemon, and carmel. It finishes a bit bitter, but very smooth.

Very interesting beer. I liked this a little more than the regular SN pale ale. It had an almost piney taste-- very fresh tasting. I’d love to try this on draft sometime-- to really maximize that fresh hop flavor.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 On draft/bottle. Copper color, light to medium bodied - good amount of carbonation. Sierra has gotten so big I usually try and steer clear, but this beer is pretty good, very drinkable, and a good session like beer.... fairly similar to the pale ale in flavor, just a tad bigger. Def one of Sierra’s better beers.

Copper Color with White Head. Nice Wet Hop Aroma. Dry, Thick Hops and Malts Initially. Malt Fades Away to a Creamy Bodied Dry Hopped Aftertaste. Nicely Balanced. Quite Enjoyable

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Draught @ Falling Rock in Denver: Coppery amber, translucent, lively carbonation, lovely off-white lacing, good head retention.   Light hop nose, a bit musty, somewhat barnish and earthy in the malt department.   Fairly well balanced on the tongue, a bit hop sided, could stand to be a bit maltier.   Fairly good body, decent mouthfeel.   Soft bitter finish, remains earthy and a bit barnish.   Comes across as a little livelier Pale Ale.

orange-y amber color with medium head. lemon and orange zest combine with nice wet hoppy aroma. piney and grapefruit with a little dash of spice. flavor is much the same only stronger on the fruit aspect.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Served deep amber with a mostly holding, tan head that settles to a thick film & halo. Nice PNW aroma of citrus & pine (not as intense as a dry-hopped brew) with ever-so-light dishwater on the back end. Solid grapefruit flavor shows big bitterness with a sharp, peppery bite & finish. A little astringent in the end but this was a really fine APA that was competitive with spicy Cajun food and could fare well as an IPA.

<font size=-4>I have it on pretty good authority that this is the "Sierra Nevada Wet Hop" that I had on draught at the Fat Tuesday Celebration, 2007 at <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/blue-i Tree Inn, Blue Island, IL 60406</font>
