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.

I am a huge IPA fan, however I have been disappointed with the wet hop and fresh hop ales that I have tried; until now. This is a wonderful beer. Pours a caramel hued light amber with a finger and a half of white head that took about a minite and a half to dissipate and left very nice lacing. Aromas of subtle caramel and fruit are stacked on a massive pine hop foundation with some citrus mixed in for good measure. This is thick and somehwat sticky on the first sip with simple malt and light citrus flavors and big pine hops finish that is wonderfully bitter then sweet then bitter yet again. Overall this is a superb beer, easily beating out the Alpine/New Belgium (which was the last IPA I sampled). I would stock up on this it handily beats out the Southern Hemisphere Harvest as well.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2016
- dunkelorangene Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - schönes malzig-fruchtiges Aroma - Kohlensäure erzeugt eine leicht cremige Note - geschmacklich dominiert eine fruchtige Note mit malzigem Beigeschmack - im Unterschied zu anderen IPA’s kommt noch eine interessante würzige Note hinzu - im Abgang wird die Hopfenbitternis dann eine Spur zu dominant Fazit: IPA mit einer interessanten Würzigkeit

Aus der Flasche die 2014-er Edition getrunken. Wunderbar!. Goldkupfern mit sehr stabilem Schaum im Glas. Hervorragende Hopfenbalance, die die 66 IBUs vergessen macht.

Similar to their extra torpedo with a hint of hop hunter.  On first taste these reminds me of a typical Sierra Nevada IPA. Heavy, resin piney flavours with a hint of citrus and floral on the nose. The bitterness of the initial taste subsides very quickly.

An aroma of hops a hint of floral and citrus, clear Amber color with a short lasting white well laced head. A balanced taste of floral hops and fruit . A dry feel with a dry hop finish.

kingaugusta (235) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2016
Pours bright amber with a slight tanned frothy head. Nose is sweet and slightly citrus with modest hops. Flavor is malty and rich with light resins, a little peat, and a modest portion of balancing hops. Bitterness is very low for the style but the overall flavor is still quite good.

Bottle from Bradleys. 09/22/2015 sadly past the 100 day line. Beautiful deep amber with a big head. Aroma has lots of pine and malts. Surprisingly bitter, very slippery mouthfeel.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4597) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 26, 2016
Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Hop Harvest 6.7% Pouring a lovely amber gold with a creamy light beige head. This has a fresh minty woodsy hop bouquet with sweet caramel maltiness. Medium bodied with a sandpapery carbonation. The taste is sweet woodsy pine, green shoots and an impressive freshness. You really get these are wet hops. Fun to see this on tap in Japan.

Interesting aroma. Smells of molasses and malt. Unique taste. Definitely not a traditional ipa but has its own thing going on. Nice finish. Good purchase.

Pours deep Amber with a lacy white head. Nose is grass, pine and a hint of resin. Taste is full of resin and pine hops, bitterness is quite strong but has a little malt balance. Very fresh and full of flavour.
