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.

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.

appearance: clear and bronze, under a light, thin, creamy tannish head. Aroma: now, we’re getting somewhere, fresh, fruity, ...citrus, grapefruit, peach, apricot, ...piney, floral, complex, and arousing. On the palate, brisk and bold, grabbing and dominating the senses,a great hoppy blast with every swallow. Warm and toasty on the tongue, palpable hoppiness, hops never stop popping! Great tasting, full bodied, with a long, fresh, hoppy finish. My first encounter with this brew that I thought I’d have to travel to California to try, and now I’ll have to return to the pub to satisfy this hop-craving I’ve developed! In fact, it reminds me of the time two years back when I bought a new acquaintance a beer, and he had no choice, offered that he’d have whatever I had. So, I bought him a SN Celebration. Before he was halfway done with the pint, it started gurgling out of his mouth, and he offered no explanation for why it fled his lips. Next time I saw him, he was drinking Rolling Rock. If I bought him a pint of this, I’m thinking he would’ve hurled when it first met his lips.

Sampled this wet hopped wonder on tap at RFD in Washington. Amber hued with an all out cascade and centennial hop aroma of citrus fruit. Smooth on the palate despite the hoppy bitterness, and very drinkable. Gives the Celebration some serious competition.

I’ve been waiting a while to get my hands on this one and it doesn’t disappoint. Nutty brown with a tangy and bitter citrus hop... goota love those hops. Cleans the palate and goes down extra smooth. Piney and nicely balance... dried fruit... vinous... excellent for a pale ale.

Amber, red tints, white head. Aroma has fresh hops, grapefruit, pine, grass, lemon, citrus. Light to medium bodied, this is quite easy to drink. Flavor is grapefruit, bitter grass, fresh hops, pine bark, caramel malt. Finishes dry, bitter, with the hops sticking all the way through.
