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.

Dark copper/bronze colour. Another big hoppy beer. I didnít realise it was made with green hops, but that certainly comes through. All the usual US hop character - pine, resin, floral notes, grapefruit, tropical fruit etc etc - in generous quantities. And its really fresh and juicy. Unlike some big hop beers, this retains a sense of decorum and, whilst not exactly subtle, it does have a touch of malt and other nuances that lend a touch of subtlety. Bitter, but in an assertive, rather than aggressive, way. Really nice. On tap at the Green Leafe Cafe, Williamsburg.

JPDIPSO (5038) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Tap @ Bennos. Copper color with a moderate off white head. toasted malt and mild citric hops. Toasted malt flavors dominate the front. Crisp and a touch sharp in the finish. Long and lingering hops acidity in the finish. Had the Celebration following and, while this ia very drinkable, just not up to the balance and flavors in the SNCA.

Nice hoppy well rounded hop and citrus friut aroma very smooth mouthfeel hop and hay taste, surprisingly full bodied yet as smooth as a nitro. Hard to fault will probaly rate higher if the next one is as good

Rich, hoppy flavor with a thick sweet/tart finish. I was very impressed with this beer.The citrusy hop bite came through in a big way.

On tap @ Loganís Alley, Amber with a nice medium beige head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied with a nice citrus hop (grapefruit,lemon) flavor balanced nicely by a caramel malt backbone, leading to a nice bitter hop finish.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Clear amber color. Mild citric hop aroma with compementing caramel malt aroma and flavors. Subdued in both malt and hop profile - I was expecting something a little bolder or bigger. Thin to moderate body, clean finish. Good and interesting, but not as memorable as one might expect.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 28, 2004
(Draft: Wet Hop Beer Festival, OíBrienís in San Diego, CA) 2003 "vintage". Iím underwhelmed by this beer. Itís rated extremely high, yet I find it one of the least interesting of the 16 beers at this Wet Hop Festival. For a wet hopped beer, there is surprisingly little going on in the nose. It has a lightly malty aroma, but thereís hardly any hops emanating from the beer. The flavor is definitely tipped toward the hoppy end. Itís fairly bitter right from the start, but especially in the finish. Medium body, clean, crisp palate. Amber color. Light tan head takes eons to settle down, but eventually is reduced to a sheen. Thin, but dense layer of lace fully coats the glass. Iíll try this again some day, but Iím certainly not in a hurry.
