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 @ Falling Rock poured a clear copper with an amber head. Aroma was grassy with notes of pine and citrus. Palate was medium bodied, dry and resiny. Flavor was earthy, with notes of carmel and hay and a warming bitter finish.

Draft, Old Chicago Eden Prairie. Poured a nice reddish brown with a smallish off-white head that mostly diminished. Picked up notes of citrus and some caramel. Taste had that refreshing grapefruit hop tingle balanced by a bit of malt. This was a surprise beer and I did not expect that much of it after several other brews in front of it that did not measure up. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. I hope to see this beer around yearly.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Tap @ Drafting Room. Pours a deep reddish orange color body with a small white head. Very sweet hop nose. The flavor was a fresh tasting grapefruit with a little black pepper and some grass. Smooth, medium bodied. Really good beer.

Mmmmmmmmmm, tasty. I was lucky enough to stumble upon this one (almost literally - it was late...) at Jack of the Wood in Asheville. Brown with a decent head. Great hop aroma grabs you right up front. Flavor, is as one might imagine, dominated by fresh, clean hop flavor - some grass, some resin, some grapefruit, all good. Its too bad I found this so late, I couldíve drank it all night.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Draught. Amber-brown color, medium beige head with superb lacing. Hops and malt in aroma, very floral. Very tasty flavor, almost spicy, with a lot of hop flavors in the middle and end. Some graininess in finish, and a very bitter aftertaste that is bordering on astringent.

BeerandBlues2 (9390) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Draught at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours amber mahagony with a small off-white head. Fruity caramel malt and hop aroma. Grapefruit citrus hop caramel malt acidic bitter hop flavor. Medium bodied and fizzy, dry palate.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 10/22/06: Re-rated one year later. This new vintage unfortunately cannot touch last yearís. Has a harsh malt that is pervasive and overwhelms the hop that was so key to last yearís batch. Smellís like a pale ale. Is a clear amber with an off-white, thin head and excellentlace. Disappointing. 10/21/05: I had no idea this beer was so good when I ordered it tonight at Old Chicago in Minnetonka, MN. Starts out with a fresh, bitter aroma. Clear, amber body with slow, dispersed carbonation. Good sized, tight bubble, slightly off-white head. Creamy, whispy head with excellent lace. Bitter flavor that tastes like itís higher in alcohol. I would have guessed 7-8%. The fact that it is only 6.3% gives it some session quality. This is really good. A full bodied bouquet of flavor. Sweet and fruity. It was initially served too cold, but in a 25 ounce glass, it at least was still cool by glassí end. Wow! I hope this brew makes an annual visit to these parts. Ar 8, Ap 5, Fl 8, Pal 5, Ov 17.
