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.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Copper amber with a good off white head and thick lacing that hangs in sheets on the glass. Good hops and citrus aroma with a big hops, grapefruit and citrus flavor with a big heavy mouthfeel.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Draft - not as much aroma as expected, but still nice spicy hops. A copper body and a beige head. Big malt flavor and the same spicy hops. Good, but not quite as good as expected to my palate.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Draft @ The Toronado. Murky orange color with a whispy white head. Pine and grapefruit nose. Great malt balance with a pleasent hop bitterness. Notes of oranges, pine and malt. Slightly metalic aftertaste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Draught at Bittercreek Alehouse in Boise, ID
Light pellucid rust color, maybe bourbon. Thin light sticky head, decent lacing. Nose of fresh wet earthy hops and toasty caramel malts. The flavor has a light burnt edge that comes from the vegetal hop bitterness and the moderate (but sparsly used) roasted malts. A touch of alcohol. A bit of chewy hop resin in the finish. Overall not as drinkable as I was expecting but plenty fresh and tasty. A bit much of lingering bitterness as the pint wears on.

jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2005
The head was spare with not very good lacing. It seemed to have a bit of an bitter after taste, but all in all a decent beer.

On tap. Nice lace but not an overwhelming head. Good flavor, but I’m not sure it deserves the ratings its getting. May just be me, but it’s definitely a good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 Had this one at Sean Bolan’s(Bel Air).Great hoppy brew that is basically an IPA.Good fresh aggresive hops.Damn smoky bars! This would have been ten times more enjoyable at home.11/28/2008> Picked up a bottle today. LAME! Must have got the only bunk bottle on the face of the earth! Hops are sorta there, mostly malts with some tingle(of hops) Smells off, cause it’s obvious, it is! At least I know why I was pissed today ever since I purchsed this bottle. I just want to add that Seirra is prob my fav brewer overall but...

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - NOV 7, 2005
On tap @ Naja’s. Very floral and hoppy aroma. More like an IPA than an American pale ale. A little bit of malt comes through in the flavor, but it is most defenitely dominated by the hops. A very well done beer.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2005
On tap at Papago. Nice floral, hoppy aroma, pine needles like just after a rain in the forest. Grapefruit notes really come through also. Very crisp clean hop flavor. Some tiny spices notes are thrown in the mix at the end of the palate. Dry and do I detect some malts trying to get through to the aftertaste? Yes, mmmmm....thank God it’s harvest time.

Hoppy, with a flowery nose. Finished clean with a light/medium palate. A pretty good beer.
