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.

Rich, hoppy flavor with a thick sweet/tart finish. I was very impressed with this beer.The citrusy hop bite came through in a big way.

On tap @ Logan’s Alley, Amber with a nice medium beige head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice citrus hop (grapefruit,lemon) flavor balanced nicely by a caramel malt backbone, leading to a nice bitter hop finish.

tap @DBA, really enjoyed this one. nice and clear amber pour decent off white head. Nice lacing. Medium bodied with great hop character, finishing with malty smoothness. Yum.

Clear amber color. Mild citric hop aroma with compementing caramel malt aroma and flavors. Subdued in both malt and hop profile - I was expecting something a little bolder or bigger. Thin to moderate body, clean finish. Good and interesting, but not as memorable as one might expect.

(Draft: Wet Hop Beer Festival, O’Brien’s in San Diego, CA) 2003 "vintage". I’m underwhelmed by this beer. It’s rated extremely high, yet I find it one of the least interesting of the 16 beers at this Wet Hop Festival. For a wet hopped beer, there is surprisingly little going on in the nose. It has a lightly malty aroma, but there’s hardly any hops emanating from the beer. The flavor is definitely tipped toward the hoppy end. It’s fairly bitter right from the start, but especially in the finish. Medium body, clean, crisp palate. Amber color. Light tan head takes eons to settle down, but eventually is reduced to a sheen. Thin, but dense layer of lace fully coats the glass. I’ll try this again some day, but I’m certainly not in a hurry.

On tap at Pizza Plant. Got some fairly rich port-like aromas mixed in with the slight malt and dominant hops from this good looking coppery red beer. Crisp and hoppy refreshing mouthfeel, with a somewhat dry finish, but a very nice flavour. Haven’t had enough of the style to know whether it deserves its reputation that way, but in general thought it was a very enjoyable beer.

I totally disagree that this is perhaps the best American Pale Ale on this website. This is a good beer, for sure... but NOT a Great Beer! This is a medium bodied, full flavored ale with hints of smoky wood-chips, citrus and grass. A quick, but satisfying finish.

On tap, Pizza Plant. Hazy reddish amber color, wispy beige head. Aroma was a little mild, fresh hops, a little bit of citrus, and some toasty malts. A little fuller flavor, some caramel along with grapefruity hops, nice balance. Medium bodied, very drinkable, easy on the palate, but still left some lingering bitterness. Quite nice.

2003 Harvest from O’Brien’s wet hop festival. Nice dark golden color and very smooth aroma, piney and citrus. Very smooth and rich, nice hop bite, but balanced. Nummy to the most.
