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.

TURDFERGUSON (4027) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2006
On tap at Tyler’s in Carrboro, NC. Was really looking forward to trying this. Was not disappointed. Huge hop aromas and flavor. Very fresh hop juice. Delish. Beautifully bitter and well balanced with a dash of sweet malts. Definitely emphasizes the hops but in a very refreshing manner. Will now compete with Bigfoot for my favorite SN product. Delish.

On tap poured a pale amber color with a nice head. Aromas of fresh hops with a good amount of malt. The taste had a bold hop profile with a nice malt balance. Overall one of the best SN beers made.

Wonderful delicate white fruit and resin nose. Herbal and spicy on the palte with a soft whitepepper note. Clean and round mouthfeel, a wonderful brew.

Very hoppy. Coppery color, not much aroma, but lots of malt and tons of hops in the taste. Great beer.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 In short: A creamy caramelized fruity IPA. Highly highly drinkable.
How: Bottles, tap, many times. This re-rate for the 12th Harvest release. My favourite so far
The look: Almost clear golden-orange body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Superb nose of aromatic leafy hops and fresh grass. Slightly toasted caramelized malts. The body is rather creamy and that gives it a sensation of a crème caramel. Hops, hops and more hops. Very juicy hops. Caramelized oranges, caramelized citrus, caramelized pineapples. Just a perfect integration between the caramel and the fresh fruity hops. Some peppery notes. I was let down by some previous versions of the SN Harvest but this 12th Harvest has renewed my faith in this product. Not that beer is a religion or anything. And if I wanted a taste of religion I’d bite a priest.

savitska (163) - Smyrna, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2006
This is a really a hopped-up (literally) version of their pale ale. Maybe a bit less of the spritzy, zesty, hop freshness of the Pale Ale, the Harvest had an immediacy and a tartness that I liked. Still, if you’re not a hophead, quaff with caution.

Draft - Rich amber color with a fluffy tan head. Near perfect pour. An excellent piney hop aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a perfect hop finish. Citrus flavors brought out as well in the flavor. Excellent.

tomciccateri (1033) - 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!
