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.

Draft at he Grey Lodge in Philly. This was pretty good. Nice mellow malt flavor going for it. With a hint of hops. Only thing missing was that Sierra Nevada hop bite.

Oh my lord was this phenomenal. I love the melding of the flavors in these fresh hop harvest ales; they are a bit piney but the really seamless fit into the bready malt and all together there is a touch of iron, stong earthiness. Goodness do I love this flavor. The aroma is not strong, but has more pure pine elements, almost sappy. Gorgeous color and mouthfeel; I could dring this all morning, as I did in Memphis at the Flying Saucer. Katie was one good lookin’waitress...

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 (Draught - 2005) Lovely copper amber. Hops in the aroma and flavor, but well balanced. I like Celebration a bit better, but this is excellent. (bottle 2007) still a great IPA. Medium amber. citrus hops aroma. Citrus and pine hops flavor.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2005
On tap at the Kennett Square Brew Fest (’05). Poured a medium amber color with smaller sized off white head. As expected, hoppy aromas and tastes. Overall, a decent APA.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2005
09.30.05 GABF You gotta love it when a beer can live up to years of hype. Insanely lasting beige head over lovely pale copper. Aroma is tight with controlled and complex resinous hops, big pine, some citrus pith. Excellent balance with a long and chewy hop finish. Touches of mint and light smoke. Tingles the lips; coats, then strips the teeth. Woth the wait.

agl108 (1005) - 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 (3380) - 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 (4937) - 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 (709) - 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.
