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.

Bottle pour. Amber color, thin head, hazy. Lots of hops, some floral notes, some malt sweetness, and dank earthy undertones that seemed a bit too strong to me. Moderate bitterness, moderate body, oily mouthfeel. Nice finish with the earthy tones nicely toning down a bit.

MetalNHopHead (1418) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 3, 2015
Ultra-fresh hops from the Yakima Valley packed into a brew with a large enough malt body to support them. What could be better than that? If you love wet hops, Harvest has all the qualities you could hope for. Dankness, juiciness, oils, resin, grassy notes, sticky (bitter)sweetness, and intense aromatics. People who aren’t usually fans of Sierra Nevada’s fans might be pleasantly surprised by the restrained bitterness and lower-than-average ABV. For the initiated, there are no surprises here. A great hop feast by Sierra Nevada. Go figure.

drmet (805) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Huge floral hoppy note -fruity orange,grapefruit,pineapple,passionfruit take a backseat here -surprisingly spicy -well carbonated -strawberry and middling hop bitter (for the style) finish really nice IPA. a 50-60% higher price than other top IPAs though. i also wish i couldve gotten this fresher (was right around 120days),mightve improved it more.

Draft/Fest. A- Citrus, pine. A- Golden orange color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Citrus, pine, resin, bitter. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- A solid IPA. My first "wet" hop IPA but I already know I like them better than dry hopped ones.
