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.

24 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/24/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, mango, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/earthy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, mango, pine, herbal, floral, grass, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, mango, pine, herbal, floral, grass, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness, balance, and complexity of juicy citrus/earthy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent wet hop IPA. All around great complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle pour. Pours caramel with great carb and nice residual tan head. Good malt body. Great hop nose with hints of pine and grapefruit. Good bitterness and a reasonable palate. Good danky wet hop. One of sierra's better projects.
