COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each fall, hops reach their peak flavor- bursting with aromatic oils that give ales layers of complex flavor and aroma that can only happen at harvest time. For us, fall comes twice a year- once in each hemisphere. This Harvest Ale features "wet" or un-dried whole-cone hops from Yakima, WA that are plucked from the bine and delivered to our brewery within 24 hours of picking.

Tap. An amber reddish pour. Very light and sweet tasting. Not much aroma but finishes amazingly with a slight hop taste.

On Tap at Bitter Creek Ale House: Dark, clear amber color with an off-white head. It has a sweet hoppy aroma with a crisp bitter taste and a great overall aftertaste. Yummy!

draft at Naja’s place: Light copper color with medium sized white head. Aroma is very faint, a touch of citrusy hops peaks out. Flavor is full of herbal and spicey hops, with a touch of honey and malt, and a solid bitterness in the finish. Very nice, but not amazing.

Draft. Copper and decent head. Rich malty and citrus hoppy aroma - fairly substantial hops, but not too rough. Good malty body with toasty caramel malts and more grapefruit citrusy hops. Good balance, and a good beer.

Copper and rich straw color with a good white head and thick lacing that hangs in the glass. Good hops and citrus aroma with a big hops, grapefruit and citrus flavor with a big heavy mouthfeel. Loved the palate!!!!

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2008 Tried some recently as Harvest 12 Wet Hop. Decent, but certainly not as bright or fresh from the bottle. I had this on tap at The Sanctuary in Iowa City. The color was a clear dark orange body with a frothy light khaki head. The aroma was obvious grapefruit with caramel and some light pine. The mouthfeel was fairly thick with lots of lacing on the glass. The taste was grapefruit with some rich toffee and tea. A nicely done American pale ale, I wish this was available more often.

This one eluded me for at least four years now - always on tap at the Winking Lizard and always gone when I got there! This year it was at the Brew Kettle in Strongsville - at last! Soft bodied and strongly piney bitter, earthy and balanced, beautiful to look at, wonderful to smell, they wouldn’t sell me a growler - you bums!

Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Medium amber color with offwhite head. Nose of fresh, pungent hops, both citrusy and earthy, along with a healthy dose of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is a real celebration of the hop-- excellent citrusy flavor hops, nice earthy hop bitterness, and pleasant sticky-sweet hop and malt balance throughout. Creamy, full mouthfeel, with a tacky, sweet hop aftertaste. Tasted incredibly fresh; I really enjoyed this one!

Copper amber with a good off white head and thick lacing that hangs in sheets on the glass. Good hops and citrus aroma with a big hops, grapefruit and citrus flavor with a big heavy mouthfeel.

3.6
smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Draft - not as much aroma as expected, but still nice spicy hops. A copper body and a beige head. Big malt flavor and the same spicy hops. Good, but not quite as good as expected to my palate.
