COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Knife Harvest Ale recognizes the tradition of hand-harvesting hops at their peak. Our HopCyclone process creates a spiral of hop dispersal during fermentation, releasing a bounty of citrus, resin & tropical aromas. #3 of 4 in our Hop Cycle seasonal series.

Pours a clear golden orange, thin head, decent lacing. Nice aromas: pine, lemon, hops, hint of honey. Very crisp. The hoppy bitterness hits your palate immediately but isn’t overwhelming. There are some interesting citrus and floral notes in the mix. Overall, a really drinkable IPA.

Luvystypotables (789) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2014
A complex aroma of floral hops, citrus, pine resin and dried fruit. Pours a caramel color with a short lasting white head. Sweet malt taste with hints of fruit and hops, dry feel with a mildly bitter finish.

From the 12 fl. oz bottle. The pour is the typical looking medium amber color with a lingering white head. The aroma is of toasted biscuit and floral hops like so many other IPA’s in this class. The body is about medium and reasonably smooth. The taste has a nice toasted malt and hop character. There are so many IPAs out there that taste the same and I am sorry to say that this is one of them. You like hops? You will like it. Will it stand out among others? Unlikely.

From a case that I bought. Brief review here. Great IPA. Get it super fresh because it took a dive pretty soon after I purchased it. Taste is mad floral, tropical, mango, papaya hops. Lots of depth of flavor. All worked well together. MMMMMM

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Fresh, creamy hop aroma. Oddly crystal clear body. Rare to get an ale that isn’t at least slightly hazy. Lots of visible bubbles, or are they visible because the body is so clear? Tastes lighter in alcohol than your usual IPA. Very solid. Drinks like a lighter IPA or a hoppy APA. Very unassuming.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear pretty amber with a huge rocky off white head, great lacing and swarms of bubbles. Citrusy nose, with some earthy and grassy hops and light caramel. Clean sweetish malt flavor, pleasant hop flavors, marmalade, biscuit. Medium bodied, balanced, dry and highly quaffable. Nice.

From bottle, poured into tulip glass. The beer pours a nice caramel color with a small head. The aroma is citrus and hops. The taste is like a magical blending of hops and citrus (mainly grapefruit) and the finish is fantastic. An awesome and unique beer!
