A tasty harvest ale. Doesn’t trey to be an IPA, instead it capitalizes on the fresh hop aroma and flavor.

On tap at Pizzeria Azzurri. Pours a translucent golden color with a thick marshmellowy white head. Nice sticky lacing. Aroma of earth and citrus. Tastes like hay and leaves. A fall treat. Some citrus rind bitterness as well. Nice carbonation making it very refreshing. Awesome for a fall day on the porch or by the bonfire. Has some yeast floaties. Rich full-mouth feel and very sticky on the palate. Bitter dry finish.

Draught at Breukelen bier merchants. clear burnt orange with nice sight head and lace. Aroma is light soft earthy and fruity hops with sweet barley. Pleasant and pastoral. Sweet earthy flavor gives way quickly to a clean lingering bitterness. Clean dry MF. Really pleasant and easy with nice hop integration for the style.

12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy orange with massive amounts of carbonation bubbles rising to the surface, it has a small white head that reduces to a blanket. The aroma is hoppy actually, spicy piney hops, not much malt, what is there is light and sweet. The taste is much maltier, dry, bitter hops with a sweet malt base. I dig the hoppiness , this is one bitter bitter. Body is light, carbonation is high. Decent beer, I wish the alcohol was a little lower, I was hoping this would be a good session beer, but 6.7% is a bit high for that.

Amber, clear, tall head
Medium high bitterness, dry, long on the palate.
Strong, resiny hop character living up to the promise of a "harvest ale", made with the fresh flower, more in herby, grapefruit zest flavor than bitterness. Malt follows.

355ml bottle, cold. Pours a clear gold, little chill haze. Fluffy white head that settles to a thin white line quick enough, great lacing. Lovely fresh aroma - Hay, grass and grain. Lovely balance between bready english malts and zesty american hops in the middle. Short finish. Tight, lively carbonation. No sense of this beer being 6.7%. A real quaffer, me likey.

Bottled: nicely hopped, flavorful, and not super malty like some Autumn ales. Decent strength so some alcohol on the palette.

On tap at Jack of the wood in Asheville. Smells like fresh hops. Clear amber with slight lacing head. There are a lot of hops in flavor, floral, grapefruit and pine, but sweeter and uncommonly smooth . Wheat and malt as well. Well done and a pleasure to drink.
