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.

Pours a dark orange color with a nice, creamy white head which leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange, resin, pine needles, grapefruit, grass, grass and some caramel. Flavour of resin, pine needles, grass and grapefruit. There’s some nice toffee notes, fruit and lingering hop bitterness. Mediumbodied with a refreshing carbonation which tickles the tounge, a bit oily in the texture even. Nice one!

It pours light amber with a slightly off white head. It produces plenty of lacing. With the aroma, the malts and grass and floral hops are pronounced. It has a piney taste with floral elements that provide plenty of bitter pop to it. Overall it is unique in comparison to most other IPA’s that I’ve had.

Zlotta (124) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2015
0,71 l bottle, best before 24/9/2015. Clear, copper with a frothy, stable, tan head. Looks absolutely perfect. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, resin and tangerine. Not as intense as expected but very nice. Bitterish taste of resin, grapefruit and tangerine. Quite good but not overwhelming. Long, medium bitter finish. Medium body, slightly oily and at the same time creamy texture, flat carbonation. Overall a very nice beer that unfortunately didn’t entirely meet my expectations. The bitterness dominates a bit too much and the fruitiness doesn’t develop completely. Still, this is a very decent IPA.

CacheManyHose (270) - HONG KONG - JAN 16, 2015
From Q Club. Hazy light copper with very thick foamy white head and legs. Smells of apple, wet piney hop, light cinnamon and sweet malt, boozy. Tastes quite bitter, dry, touch of pepper/spice. Body is fluffy but slick, very smooth, finishes on a deeply bitter resinous note. Very piney and resinous IPA.

HKdIPA (328) - HONG KONG - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from QClub at home. Barely within the 100 days since bottling suggested on the bottle. Slightly hazy light copper pour with thick fluffy head. Aroma is very dank piney hops - like the SN celebration ale but danker and, well, wetter. Taste is thick with resin and pine hop flavors - very much in that one direction. Not sharp though - not a Stone-like pine hop bomb. More evenly flavored, but still firmly in the resin/pine type of hop flavor. Solid malt backbone to balance. Palate is surprisingly rich and almost creamy for a not-that-big IPA. Good IPA but perhaps not as special as I was expecting. Would be interesting to compare against the Southern Hemisphere version.

Barwa ciemnego złota, lekko zmętniona. Piana bardzo ładna, obfita, drobna i zwarta, przepięknie krążkująca na szkle. Aromat jest niesamowity, cała masa cytrusów, do tego winogrona, rodzynki i białe owoce, a do tego słody karmelowe. W smaku jest podobnie, dobrze zbalansowane, świetne cytrusy, winogrona, ale dokładnie pamiętam smak jak w momencie rozgryzania białego dojrzałego winogrona, potem rodzynki i świetna podbudowa słodowa. Raczej pełne, gładko wchodzące, z goryczką średnio wysoką. Przepyszne.

Good but not super fresh. A little harvest, with some citrus. Good but not super fresh. Some dry leaves or hay in here. Pours dark amber, bitter finish. Tap.

Ericular (705) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours a nice orange with lasting head and great lacing. Aroma is a good balance of fruits and hops, with nothing outstanding. Taste follows with a citrusy taste and moderately bitter finish. Some balance from the malt, but not much. It’s decent, but just not one of my favorite hop profiles, I guess.

On tap at Dexters, pours a clear orange amber with a white head and some lacing, the aroma has a nice amount of fruit and hops with a malt backing, the flavor has a citrus front end with a bitter finish that the malt and caramel seems to balance it out, nothing outstanding but well made.

Loys of smoke on this beer. Pours a copper color with a medium off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is floral hops with some sweetness mixed in as well. In the taste the sweet bready/biscuity is more prevalent. There is plenty of floral hops in the taste with some spice as well. Great beer!
