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.

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.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2004
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.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2004
This was outstanding. I had this at the Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC and it was great. The aroma is of fresh hops, and the taste is dominated by a nice flowery hop profile. The finish is wonderful as is this beer. Simply magnificant.

Not being a massive hop-hed myself, I don't see what the big deal is. Average in the looks department, "green" hop nose for sure. Otherwise, oily hops in the palate that tries to be way too over the top in that West Coast way.

Brilliant orange amber. Bright, citric and perfectly balanced. There's nothing else to say. Nearly perfect!

Heavy shit baby. This beer packs tons of hop and malt flavor. I wish it was available year round but due to the way they make it this would be impossible.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2008 Draft version. Boring. Brown in color with head that disappeared when I blinked. Hops and citrus nose, but not enough of either. Oh well. Original rating 2.8 Rerate the bottle version. although there’s better head retention than the draft the flavor is basicly the same. The hops are still the boring part still.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Deep copper body. Wort-like aroma with subtle notes of cherries and juniper. Piney, fresh hop flavor. Nice medium body. Tastes like a wintery, piney, jacked up version of SNPA. Thanks to TannerTavernboys for sharing this and thanks to hopsrus for hand-bottling this great beer and hooking us up.

Rating #800:
Amber in colour with a dense tan head. Aroma perfectly balanced between hops and malt, favouring a perfumey hop character. Medium-bodied; Definate hop flavour balanced by malt and caramel. Aftertaste clean despite all the hops. Overasll, a good beer, but not the best APA i've ever had! I had this on draught at Siné in Arlington, Virginia on 23-November-2003.
