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.

Pyobon (912) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2014
(Bottle) Hazy amber with big white head. Nice aroma, predominantly citrus with subtle toffee hints. Medium body with great carbonation. Excellent flavour, starting with refreshing citrus notes that are quickly joined by some light caramel malty sweetness and then steadily growing hoppy bitterness. The hops are great; whilst there is a strong bitter finish, it isnít aggressive and there is an enjoyable evolution of flavour. An impressive beer.

jesperhammer (2868) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
21-MAR-2014, bottle @MAD. Almost clear Brown/amber with lasting, lacing, tan head. Aroma is very weak. Almost nothing there. Taste is much better with hops and malt. Very fresh hops, grassy, flowery. Creamy, malty finish. Very malty backbone with a touch of spice and cabbage. Really nice.

Bottle. Clear dark amber with a foamy beige head. Mild fruity aroma with some light malt getting through. Toffee malt taste, big bitter bite. Medium body. Tasty!

tmongoose (1266) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 19, 2014
24oz bottle shared. Pours a medium orange color with off white head. Aroma is a nice resinous hop. Oozing with flavor and malts. The flavor is very good a solid balance of hops and malts. Nice pine and some floral mix in there. Overall another excellent beer from Sierra Nevada.

mattyhennessy (300) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2014
Longneck bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber/copper colour with a slightly tan head. Obvious citrus and pine aroma with some orange peel. Excellent mouthfeel that compliments the citrus and pine. Strong grassy flavour without a harsh bitterness. Very evident use of west coast hops. Delicious.

JMerritt (1793) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bomber. Dark orangey brown with a moderate sized fluffy, bright white head. Grassy and mild orange zest hops with black pepper, light graham cracker and vanilla cookies. Flavors of leather, grapefruit rind, white tea, nectarines. A nice pale ale that leans heavily on subtle flavors and little on overly bitter abrasiveness.

nj_BierMaven (102) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Growler from local shop. Clear amber in the glass, 1 inch head fades slowly leaving a light lace on the pint glass. Light citrus and pine aroma, disappointed it wasnít stronger. Delicious bitter flavor, maybe too much for the malt backbone, ever so slightly. Iím a hophead, but I do appreciate balance, itís really a matter of individual preference. If you love hoppy bitter ales, might be a favorite for you.

3/3/14. Bomber. 2014 harvest single hop #291 Yakima. Pours light copper golden yellow. Slightly hazy. Beautiful two finger frothy head that changes into nice lacing. Light hop nose. A little citrus and a little fruit. Surprisingly non-West Coast hop profile in taste. Mild somewhat delicate hop mouth with the same citrus and pine balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhilJackson80 (311) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 1, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 The beer pours to deep amber/brown color with a thick white head. The aroma was floral with some citrus notes. The taste was that of fresh cut grass with a citrus flavor to it. The overall beer was very well balanced & had a great flavor to it.
