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.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2007
sticky slightly stinging hop aroma. slightly dark clear amber color with a dense sweet whipped cream head that rose above the lip of the glass. i love everything about this beer. tastes of raw sugar cane and leather, but mostly fresh, bright, explosive fresh hops. long on the palette and very long in the finish instead of peaking quickly. i must have more this year, im scared to see what this will cost next year.

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2008 2008 - 12th Release. Bright amber with a beautiful rustic head. Bright aroma has tropical fruit, light wood, plus breadcrust. Rich earthy character, only a hint of fruitiness. Breadcrusty notes. Well-balanced. Solid, unspectacular quality.

<i>Bottle, from malto</i>
Bright amber with a thick, rich head. Deep woody aroma with earth, caramel, mushroom. One of those "forest after it rains" kind of brews. The flavour is bitter foremost - slightly resiny, slightly piney, quite woody. There is a sweet edge to it from crystal malt that takes on a muscovado character. In the finish you get all of the above, plus a brighter tangerine or tangelo note as well...and a slight bit of stickiness and alcoholic warmth. A little more "amber" than I prefer my IPAs, perhaps due to the limited amount of bright notes, but its a quality brew nonetheless. 7-4-7-4-14 = 3.6

From a bomber, this poured a bright and clear deep amber with and off-white head and moderate lacing . Nose of citrus hops and spices. Rich mouthfeel. Flavor of citrus and caramel. Long bitter finish. A very nice offering from Sierra Nevada.

Cybercat (5482) - Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2007
This ale pours a pretty, clear, orangy-brown with a decent head. Aroma is strong, mainly hoppy and spicy, rather inviting. Flavor is rich and hoppy but has minimal bitterness. There is some malt taste and a strong hint of cinnamon. It goes down very tingly and edgy. A lively autumn ale.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Bomber. Standard copper color with a big soapy white head. Good lacing throughtout the beer. Smells to me like a sweeter version of their original PA. Nice bitter finish, more-so than the original. Very clean and bright tasting that doesnt leave a bitter flavor in the mouth...didnt blow me away, but this a really good brew from as consistant a brewery as Ive come across.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Poured the color of a brand new shiny penny. Modest short lived head. Very nice lacing that was still clinging when glass was empty. Aroma was of hops/ mild pine. Tasted of HOPs, mild pine and some sticky mild malt. Im just not getting any citrus in this stuff and I luvs the grapefruit kick. Good medium body. Very smooth. Smoother than the SNPA. decent outing. $4.99 24 oz bomber.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Tap. Pours an amber color with a small white head. Smell is floral hops, a bit of malt and yeast thrown in as well. Flavor is all hops, with a bitter aftertaste. It seems like every beer from these guys tastes the same. Decent, not great.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2007
From bottle : Pours a very good looking dark amber color with a half finger of white foamy head that dies quickly, but leaves good looking lacing and a nice foam ring. A fresh floral hop smell with some subtle malt notes. Flavor is sharp hops, thats really about it. Bitter on the palate but not overwhelming. Not to bad.
