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.

Draft at Khyber in Phildelphia. Pours reddish amber with a white head. Citrus and caramel aroma. Nice malt backbone and a very bold hop flavor, almost in IPA territory. Hop bitterness is very earthy and green. Does not linger long. Not bad, but the hops in this one was too green for me. The bartender that served me was a complete asshole because I had the nerve to ask for a receipt. I donít recommend this bar unless you are going only to see band

on tap, pured a deep copper with a nice white head. aromas of earthy hops with a little citrus. big hop flavor with a nice malty presence. very balanced and a nice mouthfeel. good ending bitterness with a slight piney aftertaste. very good, much better than the IPA and i would rather drink this than SNPA.

OldGrowth (2766) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Pint @ Tylers/Durham. Good aroma, sweet. Perfumey, citrus (orange/GF) minor nuttiness, pine. Clean brownish orange color, small head with minor lacing. Bittersweet flavor, grapefruit takes over with a toffee malt in the background. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Nice. Right up my alley. Seemed right in the middle of the pale ale & celebration.

probstblueribbon (3072) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2006
Pint at Blue Tusk in Syracuse with Lubiere. Deep reddish-copper with minimal head. Floral, hoppy, citrusy, lemony, and slightly malty nose. Moderate carbonation and a med. body. Great hops up front, moderate bitterness that doesnít linger too long. A sl. malt sweetness and pretty good balance. Nice!

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2006
On tap at Mad Mex in Columbus Ohio - Pours a dark amber iwth a short white head that faded pretty quick. Aromas of orange, light grapefruit, and some light caramel malts. Flavor is similar to SN Pale Ale which has good hop flavor but I do believe this is a tad more hoppy. More grapefruit here and a little pine. Good balance with some caramel malts. Palate is crisp and clean with a nice bitter finish.. Not bad..

This is a super hoppy pale ale. Doesnít have that farty grass smell like most fresh hop beers. strong citrus hops and a good balance of malt.

Had this on tap at the BrickStore Pub after the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival. Amber-Orange in color. Hops are very presentt in the aroma. They must have used a good amount. Fresh hops are all through the palate. Very green. You could really pick up the fresh hop flavors. I hope that more of S.N. will continue to make hopped up beers like this or even Celebration!!

Pours a deep clear amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is huge caramelly malts, and lots of delicious hoppy citrusy goodness. The body is med. and well balanced. The flavors are nothing too complex, just perfect. Big caramel malt backbone, lots of fresh dry hop juicinesss, and a touch of alcohol warmth. A lovely pale ale if I have everhad one.
