Prickly pear aroma, very malty, sweet with a touch of sweet funky apple. Nice amber in color with a lovely head. Caramel and apples dominate the flavor with some resin at the swallow. Not my favorite.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange to copper in color with a smaller, stable, fairly dense head. Light toasted malt, dough, caramel, apricot and touch of floral hops in the aromas. After the first sip I have to go back and check the style listed as there is no way I would have guessed that this was an IPA. Caramel malts and mild herbal to pithy citrus hops. Little bit of light fruit. Fairly bitter finish, in a dry herbal way. I like it in a fall, heavy amber brew.7/10

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have floral and citrus hops, grass, pale malts, hint of caramel, the floral nature comes off very soapy on the flavor which I don’t care for, mild bitterness, a touch thin, i will not revisit this.

Bottle from market square. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Mostly caramel malt nose with a tinge of tropical hops lingering. Flavor is similar with nuttiness and citrus and floral hop faintly there. Bland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1/04/2011: Weyerbacher Harvest Ale... Aroma: Soapy blend of floral and citrus (orange) hops; toffee malt. Appearance: Cloudy, orange-amber color; lasting, sudsy beige head; moderate carbonation. Flavor: Toasted toffee; unique malt profile; dry watermelon; moderate bitterness that tastes floral and slightly resiny and earthy, dired citrus peel; dry, bitter finish. Palate: Medium body; a bit oily. Overall: Decent IPA, but it’s lacking the fresh, leafy hoppiness that I love and typically associated with Harvest Ales - maybe this bottle is a bit out of date...
12 fl. oz. bottle (6.2% Alc. by Vol) from Jungle Jim’s International Market in Fairfield, Ohio. Rating #251 for this beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop notes of roasted, caramel, orange and flowers like lavender. Head is small, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy medium, amber/orange. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation. One of the better beers I’ve had with the word "Harvest" in the name, a nice example of an IPA.

12 oz bottle. Pours a foggy orange amber with a short-lasting white head. Tastes herbal, earthy, cereal. Herbal, sandy and earthy finish. Nice level of bitterness, there. Somewhat full bodied, slightly sticky and resinous mouthfeel. Refreshing, bitter ale. Liked it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from total wine Sterling. Pours the color of burnished apricot with a thick layer of white foam that leaves a fair amount of lacing. A bit of floral on the nose. Fairly nondescript on the tongue but with some nice bitterness on the finish. Solid but weyerbacher isn’t exactly known for their IPA’s.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very hoppy smelling beer with notes old ale and medicinal cabinets. Dark for-an-india copper with fine suspension. Last winter I had this and dodn’t realize it was an IPA. That being said, this beer is decidedly bitter, but has a malt backbone that gives it a straight pale ale’s character. Almost a merger with the marzen style, though clearly not a lager. Interesting if not the brewer’s greatest hit.
