This ale marks our journey to the only place on the planet where fresh hops are harvested in our spring, the Southern Hemisphere. Our task was daunting-we needed to get the hops picked, dried, flown halfway across the world and into our brew kettle in a little over a week’s time. The result is a North-by-South fusion of fresh New Zealand hops blended with the finest North American malts. Its robust hop character presents an intriguing floral-citrus aroma leading to layers of fresh-hop spiciness. Enjoy!

24oz bottle, pours a coppery glass, fluffy white head which stays... and first sip is good, different from the south but still crafted nicely... easy to drink well balanced and all around a good return to craft beer after a hiatus.

Pours a warm copper with a nice persistent head. Nice spicy (not piney) hop aroma, some citrus, woody. Rounded fresh-hop flavor, perfectly balanced, extremely drinkable, nice bitter edge without any showiness whatsoever. Maybe not quite the mind-blowing hop blast that I get from the regular SN Harvest Ale, but I definitely like this beer. Right on.

PhillyBeer2112 (2761) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Starts a deep orangey copper color, medium pitted head, good lacing. Aroma is piney hops, some grapefruit, slightly sweaty. Buttered scone malts in the background. Flavor starts rounded with caramelized buttery bready malts, followed by a tingle of resiny hops, little bursts of citrus, vaguely soapy, finished with a full herbal bitterness. Finish is long and hoppy, semi-dry. Good everyday kind of IPA.

Nose is mild and hoppy. Body is a rich copper color with a rocky head and a fair amount of lace. Flavor is of fresh hops (citrus) and nicely balanced with a perfect amount of malts. Medium bitter finish.

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Draft at Falling Rock Tap House in Denver. Dark amber body, small beige head. Aroma is richly malty and hoppy. Flavor full of citrus and piney hops with a full palate. Rich, chewy finish with more piney hops. Solid IPA.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2008
Bright golden-bronze colour with a rocky head. Hoppy aroma is woody, lightly spicy with a strong toasty, chocolatey malt base. Very spicy, woody character with moderate bitterness. Lots of crystal and chocolate malt character. Well-balanced.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 Pours a gorgeous clear amber color with a bog fluffy white head. Aroma is almost straight pine hops with maybe a little citrus smell hiding in there somewhere. Very "green" smell too, lawn clippings and garden centers. Flavor is more of the piney hops with a pretty decent malt backbone holding iot all together. The fresh hop flavor is there too in that lawn clipping kind of way. This was a nice IPA. Not screw-your-face-up bitter, but the hops were certainly good and strong.

Lowe1983 (1517) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel and citrus and pine hops. Flavor is the same with a decent bitter finish. It has that green flavor from the fresh hops that I love. Very good.

Beerman6686 (6379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Poured a nice translucent orange color with a nice off white head. Aroma was of nice fresh piney hops. Flavor was much the same as the aroma, very well balanced and extremely drinkable. Too bad SN cant make anything good besides ipa’s
