22oz bottle frome WLV....pours a deep muddled caramel brown with a hefty off-white head.... nose had an abundance of grassy hops with a decent caramel malt backbone.... flavors of smooth earthy grassy hops with a compromising malt backbone. lovely mouthfeel and nicely balanced. very drinkable....overall this was a nice a nice IPA but i believe that i prefer the regular harvest ale a little bit more.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hoppy aroma, almost smells like a bag of weed! Pours clear bronze with an almost non-existent head. Taste is strong hops and bitter, and a little bit coppery. Fizzy but kind of dry.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a tulip, the beer is a clear reddish amber with a thin head, the aroma is pretty bland with not much more than citrus coming through, it is overly hopped making the aroma being bland so much more the mystery. Not a beer for me...

Sampled at TWCP Beer Fest 2013. It poured a clear dark orange color with a white head. The aroma was of grassy hops, pine, fruity hops and caramely malts. The taste was hoppy and bitter with a lot of grassy notes, pine and caramel. The finish was dry and bitter with a large amount of grassy hops and pine. Very good.
