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.

agl108 (961) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2005 On draft. Pours a ridiculously clear copper. Typical APA aroma profile, full of hops, grapefruits, and malts. I had 5 or 6 pints and it surprisingly didin’t become less bitter as I drank it. Crisp and smooth going down. Drinkability is A+ which probably makes this beer so well liked.

SpringsLicker (3318) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2005
On tap at Summits, Sandy Springs GA. Deep amber color with an off-white head. Good hop aroma dominates. The flavor is nicely bitter overall with a strong underlying malt base. This is well worth seeking out if you like a well balanced IPA.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2005
On tap at the Drafting Room. I tasted both the 2004 and 2005 editions, and while they taste virtually the same, I like the hop of the 2005 better. The aroma is full of hops, citrus, and maltiness, as is the flavor. Pours a beautiful amber in color with a decently sized head. Goes down smoothly and leaves a nice coating on the palate. Overall....this and Three Floyd’s Alpha King are tied, I.M.O. A wonderful brew!

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2005
This is good, but no way it’s 98 percentile. Light bronze amber. West Coast PA hop aroma. Superbly balanced, medium heavy hops. Moderate sweetness. Finishes out mellowly with a substantial mouth. Great with peppered salami. On tap at Flying Saucer Memphis.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2005
Belle couleur orange aux reflets foncés, d’apparence semi translucide. Bonne quantité de mousse beige pale et persistante. Vifs arômes de houblons frais, floral et très citronné. Une bonne dose de malt apporte des saveurs de malt biscuité sur un fond terreux, quoique un peu sucré. Puissant houblonnage présentant un bon équilibre entre le floral, l’aromatique et l’amertume…champs de fleurs, pêches, résine de conifères, écorce de citron, pamplemousses. Finale exposant davantage l’amertume, corps d’épaisseur semi mince à moyenne, faible carbonatation. Servi en fût, Blind Tiger, N.Y., Septembre 2005.

zach8270 (4003) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 [draft at MacGregor’s - Henrietta, NY] Deep amber color with not much of a head. The aroma is very hoppy and floral with a touch of citrus underneath. Very crisp flavor that begins with a nice and floral hop flavor and goes to a crisp and slightly bitter and peppery hop finish. Quite tasty.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2007 On tap at Papago. Floral aroma like a good ipa. Copper body and small head and some lacing. Mild bitterness with some citrus flavor. Cool and crisp on the palate. Another good hoppy beer by these guys.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 On tap at the Blind Tiger. Copper coloured beer with a thick white head. Sticky lacing. Sweet caramel and crystal malts with a pronounced citrusy hop aroma. Flavour is also quite good, if somewhat simple. Caramel malt and a touch of toastiness up front before the assertive hop bitterness comes through. Fantastic pale ale. 8 4 7 4 15 24 oz bottle. Rich amber colour with a thick pillowy off-white head. Aroma is lovely, light toasted malts with an assertive pine and spicey hop aroma. Quite fresh smelling and fresh tasting. Bready malts and a hint of orange marmalade and grapefruit. Fresh and sweet. Great balance and a resiny hop finish. Lean body, bright hops, what more could you want? 8 4 8 4 15

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2005
On-tap at The Flying Saucer in Addison, TX Pours a deep clear red with a reddish-tan he.ad. No lace evident. Smells bitter and floral hops. A grainy bed for hops. Bitter and citrusy hops. Grainy malt and lightly sticky. Bitter finish. Lightly fruity. Mouth is alternately crisp and sticky sweet. Really good stuff, wish they bottled it.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2005
This had a copper body with about two fingers worth of white head. Head had decent retention and left some rings of lace around the glass. Aroma is full of hops with citric and grassy notes coming on strong. A good bit of malt is present as well to keep the balance. Taste comes across a bit hoppy with citric notes with balancing malt coming on almost as strong. Very well balanced and tasty brew that has a very clean crisp taste. Aftertaste is a bit hoppy with a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a very crisp feel to it. Drinkability can be defined by this stuff. This could almost be overly drinkable. All around excellent beer that I wish they would bottle.
