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.

chickenflea (347) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2010
24-oz bottle. Big off-white lasting head. Coppery clear body with medium carbonation. Pine resin and tropical fruits in the aroma. Dry but with medium caramel sweetness. Hops are a nice blend of citrus, pine and grass. Does the wet hop process increase the mellowness and character of the hops? Aftertaste settles quickly into piney bitterness. Medium body. Soft mouthfeel. Equally good warm or cold. A very nice brew. Not the kind that punches you in the mouth. More like a wet kiss. Nice!

Borostyán színű ale, íze, illata tele borókával, friss fenyőhajtással, kis élesztővel, fás fanyarsággal, gyümölcsösséggel, száraz utóízzel. Finom!

mp_lane (66) - Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours clear brownish amber with decent off-white head and lingering carbonation. Aroma is light fruit, not overpowering. Taste is very hop forward but not too bitter or astringent. Very nice!

Golden-copper with solid white head. Clean floral, earthy hop character with a moderate body and the hop flavors linger. Nice floral hop bouquet.

BucannonXC5 (935) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Type: 24-oz. bottle Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif. Price: $5.29 Purchased: Dec. 9, 2014 Consumed: Dec. 12, 2014 Misc.: Packaged on Sept. 24, 2014 at 5:49 a.m. Poured a dark orange, caramel, clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-white, rocky head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom. Good layered spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. A good looking beer. (Sight - 4.38) Smelled wet pine, Citra hops, caramel, light grapefruit, faint wet Cascade hops, earthy rye and soapy lime. Reminded me a bit of the Oregon woods. (Smell - 3.75) Tasted a tad better than the nose. Got Citra hops, some Cascade hops, wet pine forest, soapy malts, lime zest, caramel, some grapefruit, mango, floral hops, earthy rye hops and lemon iced tea. (Taste - 3.88) Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.13) This was a pretty good IPA for sure. It got better as it went down. I’d have it again. (Overall - 4.00) 3.93 88 B+

sharkweek (107) - Statesboro, Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2014
very satisfying IPA. This one pours a slight amber with a few fingers of thick head. Plenty of piney hops in this one. I loved it an would recommend it to any IPA drinker.

libertine (231) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
pours amber with a tan head. Strange that malt is the first thing I pick up in the aroma of an IPA. Aroma of tropical fruits with slight resin. Taste slightly sweet, but once again not so much hops coming through. Your hops come through mostly in the finish. Taste pretty damn good but I don’t understand the over the top ratings.

John25 (693) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle. 2014 wet hop. Amber with an incredibly dense fluffy head. Spicy, earthy aroma Malt forward taste that opens up to pine and citrus bitterness. Very dank and fresh. Nice floral resinous finish. Great stuff.

fattybladdy (617) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Robust clear amber color with thick head. Aroma consists of resinous hops and spicy earthiness. Big hoppy taste with citrus, resin, and earth and a clean malt backbone, finishes quite bitter. Tasty stuff.
