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.

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.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2005
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.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Golden. Minty, herbal aroma. Very full bodied. Malty, balanced sweetness. Best part is the bitterness that dominates, goes for a long finish. Herbal notes in the taste as well.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Pours a lighter amber color, small white head. Aroma is hoppy, with pine needles and grapefruit. Flavor is "subdued" and is mildly hoppy, lots of fruit and pine notes in this. Wish I coulda had this one a little fresher.
