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.

Out of the draft at the Avenue, SC, ca.. quite a brew. Most definately the best american pale ale i’ve tried. Poured an rich amber color, with a thick, creamy white, bubbly head. Smelled of really well balanced hops/malts. layered fruityness was the most distinguishing aroma. Pungent taste, tasted more hoppy after every sip. Sticky too. The lacing was unbelievable, when the brew was done, all sides were completely coated with the milky head. I want a keg of this beer. The most interesting and well balanced pale ale by far, loonz.

Spicy hops, pine and resin. Orange citrus with a malt finish. Could stand a bit more malt in the first assault.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2004
Draught. Beautiful copper color with a thick one finger head. Very hoppy (in a good way) with a medium bitter flavor. Medium lacing. Finish is slightly bitter with a hint of pear. A very clean tasting beer.

This beer is nice and hoppy like most S.N. products but is distinctive. The hop taste is more refined and pleasant than the SN Pale Ale (some people complain). It also is more malty and creamy than the Pale Ale. The flavor is full and the palate is extremely high with tastes. Overall it is a nice alternative to the Pale Ale, though harder to find. Only have seen it in the Gingerman here in Houston (actually on special), which is beer heaven for us Texas folk.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Beer pours attractive cooper brown with a large creamy off-white head that is fully retained. There is excellent lacing as this beer is consumed. The aroma is mainly hoppy withh flowery perfumy notes. Flavor is initially hoppy with a nice light malt finish. The hop flavor is wonderful and the light maltiness set off the hops just right. Wonderfully balanced.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I had this on draft and it's just a pretty typical pale ale, nothing special about it. I prefer SNPA.

Bitter hop flavor but very smooth. Sweet and floral aroma. Leaves a nice tasty bite and spice on the back of my tongue.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 (Draught) Pours a clear amber color with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, wet dog, and freshly ground grain. Flavor of grass, citrus, herbs, caramel, and florals with a bitter finish.

Over-rated to say the least. Their are so many better pale ales out their. This one went down easy, and thats the only good point found of this brew. I will rerate at another point.
