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.

frankenkitty (1987) - 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>

Dark copper color, diminishing head. Aroma is pine and citrus. Flavor tastes like drinking a pine cone. Strong hop bitterness, but the body holds it up fairly well.

Manetsdad (12) - USA - FEB 13, 2007
On tap at San Diego Brewing Company. Deep orange color with aroma of citrus and hops. Flavor is primarily hops but with sufficient malt to bring balance. This one is hoppier than many IPA’s, which is a good thing. A great session beer.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2007 The hops stole the show on this one. A hop plant started growing out of the bottom of the glass when I was finished. I realize this flavor was intended, but it completely overpowered anything else this beer had to offer. Maybe that was the point.

This is a pretty fantastic beer. Citrus with bitter hops. Everything about this beer is bold, its bright orange hue, its dominant hops , its bitter finish and hefty carbonation. Great all arounder.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Draught - Taco Mac Alpharetta Very well executed Pale Ale. Nice citrus aroma, flaoves dominated by hops ranging from the citrus to the floral and piney. Well balanced by a malt backbone. Good stuff.

bethmatt0421 (337) - Covington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2008 On tap from Party Town. Floral, citric, and bready wheats, stacked with a bitter hop, alcoholic bite. You can feel the alcohol burn on the lips a little bit, dispite the low content. Regardless, its pretty good.

kseecs16 (1214) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 On tap at Emmett’s Ale House in Downers grove. This was pretty good out of a beer that I was not sure what to expect from. Aroma is purely characteristic SNPA with a more robust floral and citric character. Dark amber/copper color with a thin off-white head, some lacing evident. Bold robust hop flavor is quite nice a touch of fruity sweetness balanced on a strong body of malt. Nice strong lingering bitterness finishes off this medium bodied beer.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2007
Pours a clear copper, with a straw colored head of about an inch. Thin but abundant lacing throughout the glass. Nice citrus hops in the aroma. It smells oh so fresh - maybe even a little grassy. The hops are the first flavor - more of a tart orange or tangerine than anything else. Bold, but nicely complimented by a somewhat fruity, somewhat carmelly malt profile. Excellent citrus hops in the aftertaste, lingering for quite some time. Again, the impression of a fresh, flavorful beer comes through loud and proud. Medium to full body, and a sturdy dose of carbonation adds to the hop bite.
