Finally, on draught at the local pub. Sierra Nevada and hops go together so well. I would say this is just a tad below Alpha King for hops but it is a nicely balanced beer and the hops taste so pure.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Ultra-fresh hops from the Yakima Valley packed into a brew with a large enough malt body to support them. What could be better than that? If you love wet hops, Harvest has all the qualities you could hope for. Dankness, juiciness, oils, resin, grassy notes, sticky (bitter)sweetness, and intense aromatics. People who aren’t usually fans of Sierra Nevada’s fans might be pleasantly surprised by the restrained bitterness and lower-than-average ABV. For the initiated, there are no surprises here. A great hop feast by Sierra Nevada. Go figure.

Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit caramelly, and slightly stale citric and piney hops, with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear gold. Has a faint grain and light citrus hop aroma. A grainy flavor with malts, caramel, hops, and an overall earthy dry taste. Tasted more like a mix of random things than a true IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 Bottle @ YNWA Beershop, Kolding. Pours hazy golden with a frothy white head. Lots of pine and bread. Aroma hops are old school but the beer is very tasty. Dry, bitter, oily, stiicky and quaffable. Pine ’N Resin. Good!
