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.

Clear coppery pour with a fluffy white head that disapated quickly, leaving some lace. The nose is all PNW hopping. First taste reveals caramel/toffee malt base with some bright "green" hoppiness, citrus (grapefruit) and pine. The palet is smooth and easy-drinking. This is not a complicated beer...just one that you can repeat over and over and over!

On tap @ Oíbrienís in San Diego. All I knew about this brew is I had not had it, and honestly when I think of harvest ale, I think of JW Lees so I was hopeing for another SN barley wine but I got a very hoppy APA instead. Pours deep amber with no head. Malty aroma with a bit of hoppiness. The taste is overwhelmingly hoppy and aggressive. This honestly felt like an IPA to me and it is certainly potent.

On tap at the Blue Nile. Clear amber-copper brew with barely a layer on beige foam. Nose is dominated by a bit of perfumey hoppiness with just a touch of nutmeg or cloves. A nice drink. Leaves a slight bitter taste on the tongue.

Bartzilla (620) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 24, 2006
On tap at SN brewery. One of their best, next to Celebration and 20th Street. Super fresh, light and hoppy. Lingering aftertaste of some good bud. It was nice to drink this from the source.

Any beer that leaves a bitter hop aftertaste is tops in my book. Chalk up another for Sierra Nevada.

Deep amber color with white fluffy head. Aroma is of bitter citruis hops. Flavor is of nice malts with bitter grassy hops. good mouthfeel for a pale ale.

On tap at Blue Nile. Dark copper color with a large head. Odd aroma I really couldnít place, but seemed to suggest mint. The taste was something I was not expecting at all: very vegetable-like, earthy, dusty and obviously hoppy. The fresh hops give it an incredibely different taste thatís a nice change of pace. The bitterness isnít as high as with dried hops, but itís a great flavor of leafy hops.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Nice looking beer, pouring an orange body with a light tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel with pine and grapefruit. A full bodied brew, itís a well balanced ale, the caramel backbone standing up nicely to the PNW hop bitterness, the latter lasting long into the finish. Very sessionable.
