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.

The appearance is a slightly hazy orange color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends resin and floral hops with caramel and toasty malts. The taste is quite bitter on the front, but that fades fairly quickly to a mild bitter level; also, a slightly sour and slightly sweet flavor persists throughout the flavor. The palate fuses a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a slightly bitter yet somewhat sweet finish.

Draft. Aroma of grassy hops. Slight citrus. Fairly clear reddish color. Minimal head. Taste is also grassy with some notes of lemon. Not bad and quenching. I think I just don’t care for wet hops.

Had this after 2 double ipas so maybe my palate was ruined but it was thin and watery and plain old sucked.

scarletfire65 (904) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bomber at home. Kind of mild hoppy aroma, with some pine, fruit, and brown sugar standing out. Bitter, fresh, and focused. Straightforward flavor profile, dripping with fresh hop oils. A decent fresh hop IPA.

Mastelefish (70) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
On draft, pours an amber with quickly dissipating head. Hops are pretty earthy to the smell. Taste is fairly bitter and consistent through. Medium bodied. Drinks well alone.

samsmith33 (351) - - DEC 19, 2013
Aroma Is strong hops, grains, light citrus. Very full. Medium brown, a little cloudy with a thick white creamy head. Taste is hops and grains all the way. Bready, thick. Got tedious and a bit sour near the end , but A good beer nonetheless.

harrymel (1477) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
2011 A: pours dark copper with a finger of off-white/light tan foam which falls to a sheet of the same over several minutes. Cobweb lace. Excellent clarity. S: pine and resin with underlying toasted crystal malts. T: Oily and hoppy. The resin hops are strong on this one. Plenty of english endorsed malt profiling here as well. M: Medium on heavy for the style with low carb. thick oily finish. O: Good beer, but not my favorite harvest ale. Serving type: bottle 10-19-2011

Sathorael (151) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Pours amber/copper in color with medium off white head and great legs. Aromas of toffee, bread, pine, citrus rind, floral notes, petrichor and a bit of spice. Taste is salty caramel, toffee, pine resin, lawnmower trimmings, spice, fresh ground pepper, citrus rind, and more resin. Finish starts sweet and rapidly moves into a lasting bitterness. Juicy mouthful and very refreshing. Very complex earthy but bright beer. Outstanding.
