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 draft at the Drafting Room, Exton. Hazy copper colored, woth big malt, hops, fruit aroma. Tons of malt and hops in this, balanced by some floral esters. Rich, complex finish. Fantastic.

Golden. Minty, herbal aroma. Very full bodied. Malty, balanced sweetness. Best part is the bitterness that dominates, goes for a long finish. Herbal notes in the taste as well.

Pours a lighter amber color, small white head. Aroma is hoppy, with pine needles and grapefruit. Flavor is "subdued" and is mildly hoppy, lots of fruit and pine notes in this. Wish I coulda had this one a little fresher.

I had this back in the fall of 2003 and just found my tasting notes! Sweet! Dark golden, with red notes. Intense hops in the nose that are equal parts grassy and piney. Initially malty, turning bitter and piney. Quite intense. soft carbonation allowed the true nature of the acidic, edgy hops to show themselves. I wish I could get this in bottles.

Brilliant copper in colour. Aroma was wonderfully bitter with citrus hops (grapefruit) with a bit of pine. Flavour was malty (cookies, dough) at the front with citrus hops showing themselves at the back of the mouth. Full bodied, light carbonation, very well balanced. Finishes with a medium bitterness.

Finally, on draught at the local pub. Sierra Nevada and hops go together so well. I would say this is just a tad below Alpha King for hops but it is a nicely balanced beer and the hops taste so pure.

It’s hard to complain about any SN beer. This one was very, very good. A pint for $1.75 is hard to beat.

On tap at the horse brass pub in portland. I’m really supprised to see the high ratings this brew gets, I was really unimpressed with this harvest ale. Not nearly the hops I was expecting, instead they were replaced by a lemony sweet fruit grainy malts alongside a more subtle light citrus hopping. I was expecting a more fresh hop profile but this had a much more chemical lemon fresh scent and taste. Very light on the palate with a dry finish. maybe this could have been a bad batch, i’ll have to find it again.
