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.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2009
22oz, 13th anniv release. Pours a clear dark reddish copper with an average beige head. Nose is subtle citrus and pine hops. Taste is caramel, lipton tea, pine, grapefruit, earthy hops. Not sure what they use, but i am guessing there are some combination of chinook, columbus and/or cascades in there. It is balanced with some semi-sweet graininess and some biscuit flavors as well. Body is medium, carbonation is medium to moderate. Not bad, but it could use some more fresh hops in the flavoring part of the boil and more dry hopping..gimme more fresh hops or gimme death!

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 (211) - 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.

GenkiGonzo (1019) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2016
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 (4349) - 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.

vandc01 (322) - North Branch, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle pour at home with a packaged date of 9/22/15 ( 124 days old) Considering the label says 100 day IPA, this is still quite good for a wet hop IPA. Probably one of the better wet hop beers I’ve had.

tekstr1der (345) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Good all around, this pours a dark amber with persistent white top and some lacing. Aroma is subdued, but nice - earthy and resinous. Flavor is similar with a good balance from malt sweetness. Somewhat bitter, but very palatable finish, never too dry.
