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.

tomciccateri (1028) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 6, 2006
On draught at Barleys in Overland Park, Kansas. A dark amber, medium-bodied, with a nice early hoppy flavor and even dry/sweet malty flavor balance. Nice underlying hop bitterness. A nice seasonal!

Stine (1645) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Beautiful...served on tap at the Nomad World Pub. Translucent amber orange topped with a rich, creamy beige head. Smells and tastes like the air while burning a campfire amidst the towering evergreens of the olympic rainforest. Wonderfully, uniquely, the immense weight of hops propounds a delicate, unaggressive strength, such that other flavors like honey, lemon, and lime are actually highlighted. Brilliance!

Updated. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Comprehensively muted, incontrovertibly awkward, and flawed. Citrus and ash aroma, off-putting and disappointing, leading to a burnt popcorn, sawdust and melon rind flavor that is no more a comfort. Quite saddening by comparison. Score averaged accordingly.

I had it on tap, it was served to me with very little head. The color was a bright glowing amber and the aroma was a little hoppy. The carbonation was nice on the palate and the taste was a great balance of malt, hops, and alcohol. Very nice... great beer.

From a growler. Deep amber with almost no head (sitting in growler 3 days). Big hoppy aroma - citrus,pine and grapefruit, with some malt as well. Sweet malt becomes much more pronounced in the flavor. Hops reappear for a great bitter finish. Wish they bottled this.

my audionotes had a hard time describing this: pretty hoppy but with a pretty strong malt backbone for an SN. the SN taste was pretty obviously there, but the malts contributed from the beer balanced it pretty well.

On tap at Pilsener Room, Portland. Amber, lasting beige head. Sligtly floral hop. Nice malts. Has a bit of creaminess. Nice green hop finish. Quite creamy, but full in mouth, but full and subtle. Nice malt and great quality.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Draught @ Piece in Chicago. Reddish amber pour. Smooth, grassy sweet aroma. Sweet, sticky, wonderful wet hops that make this an instant classic. My only hope is that production levels continue to rise and we see more SN Harvest on the East Coast.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2006
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 don’t 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.
