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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Draught @ Falling Rock in Denver: Coppery amber, translucent, lively carbonation, lovely off-white lacing, good head retention.   Light hop nose, a bit musty, somewhat barnish and earthy in the malt department.   Fairly well balanced on the tongue, a bit hop sided, could stand to be a bit maltier.   Fairly good body, decent mouthfeel.   Soft bitter finish, remains earthy and a bit barnish.   Comes across as a little livelier Pale Ale.

orange-y amber color with medium head. lemon and orange zest combine with nice wet hoppy aroma. piney and grapefruit with a little dash of spice. flavor is much the same only stronger on the fruit aspect.

frankenkitty (2007) - 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.

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.

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.
