Harmon Barrel-Aged Apricot Saison
Draft at Zeekís Lynnwood; evidently this beer is made just for Zeekís--presumably any location, not just up here. Pours a murky medium orange with a dense and creamy off-white head. Nose clearly shows apricot, as well as bits of lemongrass, barrel character is fairly mild. Creamy medium body, minimal carb. Apricots, light barrel, soft lemongrass on the mid palate. Sweetish finish.

Harmon Point Defiance IPA
Bottle from Harvest Foods grocery store in Moses Lake. Medium amber with thick fluffy head. Malts edge out the hops ever so slightly, but overall a nice blend. Some sweet, some astringent, dry finish.

Harmon Lukeís Cask-O-Nuts Hazelnut Mocha Bitter Brown

Harmon Puget Sound Porter
Porter blind taste #2. Aroma is much bigger than the first. Sweeter, with coffee and caramelization. Appearance is darker than #1, deep brown with small ring of head. Tastes: like a dry, soulless, faded cola without enough syrup. Palate: light body, small-bubbled carbonation, chalky texture. Overall: I liked the nose at first, but the rest was a disappointment.

Harmon Puget Sound Porter
Porter Blind Tasting #2. A little more brown in color that the first porter. Strong coffee character from the malt, not actually coffee. Light ashtray and faint toffee. Flavor is a little sweeter with some toffee essence but not sugary sweet. A little dry finish and some sandpaper like roughness at the end. More dull than anything else.

Harmon Kamehamehaís Crown Pineapple IPA
Purchased from The Beer Junction, Seattle, WA May this year. Bottle 149/240. Had one of those feelings I shouldíve bought more than one of these when I had the chance. This was one of those spectacular beer experiences a geek like yourself would enjoy. Fairly bourbony on the nose with hints of tropical fruit and a bit of red wine. Flavors are abound in every direction with notes of vanilla, oak, pinot, tropical fruits tossed with hops, pineapple, and a singe of hoppy bitterness in the finish blended with bourbon alcohol. Fucking brilliant and beautiful. Wish I had more!!!!

Harmon Fall Classic Imperial Redd
A nice red that's not really a red. Pours a muddy brown with a thick tan head. Smells of cloves, Rosemary, honey and a bit of hops. Taste is quite different, very creamy, lots of mocha and vanilla, more like a porter. Sweeter then expected. Finishes with a slight hop bitterness. Had in the bottle.

Harmon Point Defiance IPA
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy amber to red/orange (tinted along the sides) color. There was a light half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing conveying itself along the sides of the glass. The smell had a decent intrusive citrus to piney bitterness. The taste followed the aroma in a nice way. On the palate, this one sat right about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp and wanted to try to be invasive to pummel my tongue into submission but it didnít. Overall, this was a mostly decent AIPA that I think I could have again.
