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.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 On tap at the Blind Tiger. Copper coloured beer with a thick white head. Sticky lacing. Sweet caramel and crystal malts with a pronounced citrusy hop aroma. Flavour is also quite good, if somewhat simple. Caramel malt and a touch of toastiness up front before the assertive hop bitterness comes through. Fantastic pale ale. 8 4 7 4 15 24 oz bottle. Rich amber colour with a thick pillowy off-white head. Aroma is lovely, light toasted malts with an assertive pine and spicey hop aroma. Quite fresh smelling and fresh tasting. Bready malts and a hint of orange marmalade and grapefruit. Fresh and sweet. Great balance and a resiny hop finish. Lean body, bright hops, what more could you want? 8 4 8 4 15

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2005
On-tap at The Flying Saucer in Addison, TX Pours a deep clear red with a reddish-tan he.ad. No lace evident. Smells bitter and floral hops. A grainy bed for hops. Bitter and citrusy hops. Grainy malt and lightly sticky. Bitter finish. Lightly fruity. Mouth is alternately crisp and sticky sweet. Really good stuff, wish they bottled it.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2005
This had a copper body with about two fingers worth of white head. Head had decent retention and left some rings of lace around the glass. Aroma is full of hops with citric and grassy notes coming on strong. A good bit of malt is present as well to keep the balance. Taste comes across a bit hoppy with citric notes with balancing malt coming on almost as strong. Very well balanced and tasty brew that has a very clean crisp taste. Aftertaste is a bit hoppy with a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a very crisp feel to it. Drinkability can be defined by this stuff. This could almost be overly drinkable. All around excellent beer that I wish they would bottle.

Ernest (6162) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Draught, Falling Rock. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (apricot, resin), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Pleasant enough APA/IPA.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 1, 2005
New England Road Trip Easter ’05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #67. Pint on tap at Sunset Grill. Dark orange with a lasting creamy small head and thick coating in the glass...sweet citrusy/hoppy nose is nice but gives little indication of the treasure to come...hugely malty body subtle with fresh, juicy peaches, new-mown grass and late finishing earthy bitterness...very sweet throughout, but never cloying, with one of the most gorgeous, pillowy, light yet enveloping mouthfeels ever. I’ve waited a long time for this beer, and it did not disappoint. Best of the weekend.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Nice rubyesque color. Diffuse head. Very smooth, surprisingly subdued hop aroma, with the flavors a little more assertive, though slightly harsh with some raw, grassy hints. Plummy malts in the aroma. Much like a miniature Bigfoot. Leggy head.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2005
strange peppery hop aroma, dark copper in color, herbal/mediciny hops dominate with a unique sweetness interlaced and some growing earthy hoppiness near the finish, a truly disinct beer

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Deep amber color, solid white head. Potent aroma of pine tree and grapefruits. No surprisingly there’s much more of that in the flavor. Juicy, sticky dripping pine cones and hop juice, well balanced and firm, sharp bitterness but in a pleasant way. Tremendously enjoyable throughout.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 I really enjoyed this brew. It was very fruity whitout being overly sweet. It was very drinkable, but the mouthfeel was a little thick.

On draft at the Drafting Room, Exton. Hazy copper colored, woth big malt, hops, fruit aroma. Tons of malt and hops in this, balanced by some floral esters. Rich, complex finish. Fantastic.
