COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uplandís Harvest Ale is an American Pale Ale by design, but an even more vibrant rendition by loading up our hopback with freshly harvested Citra hops. Expect huge wafts of tropical fruit notes, balanced by a moderate bitterness and light toasted malt character. A showcase for one of our four favorite ingredients and a delight for all the hopheads out there.

Iím really surprised by the low overall rating of this beer. It is one of the better offering from Upland. The use of Citra hops puts this beer over the top with a great citrusy flavor. Medium bodied, with a clean slightly bitter finish.

Very nice fresh hopped ale. Not sure how I haven't had it since it's from a brewery I'm so familiar with. This will become a Fall staple for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really good job this year upland. Nose is all citra, body isn't too light or rich, and the finish is nicely bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Talking to the people at Upland it sounds like this might very well become an annual release. I hope so because it is right up there with Double Dragonfly and Teddy Bear Kisses as a fair priced local option. Grab it while it is still fresh for a phenomenal seasonal.

Aroma / Appearance - The amber brown base hangs in the glass. Lively and vibrant carbonation sparkles like a soft drink as it tries to escape the thick eggshell head. Bright piney hops, orange glaze, and carrots topped with brown sugar ground this in the autumn months.

Flavor / Palate - Sweet pine residue, grapefruit, and citrus linger sip after sip. The first impression is not much but it does not take long for the richness to hang around like a morning fog. The bitterness at the end is not strong enough to be harsh but definitely is memorable. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. Iíll be getting more if I can find bottles.

ContemplateBeer (1554) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Aroma: Very vibrant grapefruit hop core with edges of mango; the malt character is actually detectable with cereal. Appearance: Mostly clear light copper body with a patch of creamy tan head. Flavor: Fairly fruity up front with grapefruit still dominant; some light/moderate bitterness comes in closer to the finish. The cereal/toast malts are unmistakably in there, and provide a slightly sweet respite from the bitterness. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: My first beer in nearly two weeks and worth the wait. Quite nice indeed.

Bottle. Copper/gold pour, big white head, good retention/some lace. Aroma of citrus/pine hops, caramel, toast. Taste is moderately bitter, orange peel, resin, some caramel malt sweetness, light toast. Palate is drier, soft, oily, bitter finish. Very nice.

Gription79 (2293) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. A strong skunky hop aroma, citrusy, earthy, pine. A well balanced whole hopped ale. Some astringency. A tasty enough beer.

nuplastikk (4671) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 2014 12oz bottle. Filtered copper orange body. Foamy white head laces the glass. Earthy, hop vine tones. Resinous. A touch dry, rindy. Not really what I would associate with Citra at all, not sure if that has been changed. A touch biting. Very fresh, but lacking big tropical tones, more in line with a classic NW bill..in a good way. A really solid beer either way. 2013 12oz bottle. Filtered dulled orange-tan body. Thin, steady white head. Earthy aroma, sort of subdued. The hop flavor is quite strong in the flavor, with some resinous eathiness throughout. Clean and drinkable, but pronounced hop tones. Not really much bitterness or bite, but the trained tongue certainly picks up the Citra. A touch vegetal, but quite nice beer. Well done, enjoyable stuff.

shrubber85 (7867) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle. Orange caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly earthy barley malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Nice - particularly like the malt flavor in this.

574deadzone (1073) - North Central, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours a golden-orange with a creamy off-white head that leaves some lacing behind. Nose initially of yeasty dough followed by some pine and earthy hop notes. A hint of metal detected. Taste is pretty bitter with very little sweetness. Palate is tannic and drying, toward medium bodied, more active on the carb. Certainly very hoppy, but not quite clean or especially refreshing. Still, worth a try.
