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.

fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Robust clear amber color with thick head. Aroma consists of resinous hops and spicy earthiness. Big hoppy taste with citrus, resin, and earth and a clean malt backbone, finishes quite bitter. Tasty stuff.

On draft at SNís Torpedo tasting room in Berkeley. Normally this beer blows me away each year but I am underwhelmed by this yearís release. Though itís still damn good. Light orange with a fine white head. Great lacing. Very hoppy but not quite as citrus-y/piney as usual. Almost British by SN standards. More hops on the palate, very dry. Refreshing, but not as bold as I remembered.

Copper/amber color with orangish white head. Big piney, earthy aroma. Malty flavor with strong hops, nice, pleasing bitter finish.

2014 - Great introduction into the glass. Textbook pillowy head nested on a copper body. Smooth hop flavor that allows the bitter notes to play well with other flavors. Fresh citrus taste. Extremely enjoyable .

Pours a clear amber with a thick creamy head. Aroma is piney hops citrucy with a mild chocolate malt note. Taste follows the aroma well with the chocolate note more upfront. Medium mouth feel. This Beer has a killer malt backbone and a very delicious hop profile. This is a awesome brew! In my top 5 for sure.

Had on tap at Monkey Paw in San Diego. Pours a clear Amber with minimal white head. Aroma is floral with some pine. Smooth and clean. Finishes nicely. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HonusWagner (1702) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Earthy, foresty fresh hop cones, finish is piney, middle of palate medium sweetness, low-middling bitterness for style. Extremely drinkable, good flavors, good beer overall.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle shared with pop. Aroma of pine, earth, grass, and malt. Pours amber in color with a nice frothy head. Taste is earthy, grass, pine cone, and a smooth caramel malt back. Reminds me of a much less offensive Arrogant Bastard. Great bitterness throughout. Solid IPA!
