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: Amber, fair amount of carbonation. Creamy head. Hoppy and tangy taste. Altogether, tasty.

Even better than their "regular" pale ale, which is probably my favorite beer...this one has a tad bit sweeter taste, not so much a charred taste like the pale ale...get it while its good...

Draught: golden orange, creamy and smooth. Big sweet floral aroma. . . much better balanced that the pale ale, all around great flavour, wonderful lasting hop flavour on the tongue. This is a great beer!

On tap. This was a great beer! Got it in Chicago and can't find it near me. Great color. Great nose. Perfect balance of hops. Touch of citrus. I Want more.

What a great beer. Had in Denver during GABF. It seems most Harvest Ales I had were "lets see if we can make the hoppiest beer alive" but this one had the malt to back the hops making it well balanced and delicious. This brewery continues to put out the best beers no matter how big they get.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2003
(Draught): The pour a deep amber to almost copper color, the head modest, the texture frothy and the lace sufficient to cover the glass. Nose is malt dominated with a nice underlying hop floral spiciness, crisp, fresh and a treat to the senses. Malt also controls the start, the top middling in feel, finish is wallopingly acidic, spanking in its hop presence, and the aftertaste hop bitter and long lasting. A real treat as this beer never seems to make it out of California, and just another reason to support the “Great People” at Papago Brewing for bringing this beer to Arizona.

Crit (3334) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2003
Copper with lasting off white head.Intense bead. Fresh hop nose. Medium hops with a hint of malt. Great lace

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - JAN 3, 2003
The hit of the day at Sierra Nevada. Went back for another pint after the tour. Big, brown, and rich with a lingering finish that stayed in the nose most of the way home!

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Pale amber color, thick creamy head that laced the glass. Hoppy aroma. Well-balanced flavor of hops and just enough supporting malt. Full mouthfeel. Overall, this was one of the best APAs I’ve ever had.

Yummah! Richer than the pale ale, but a similar hop character.
