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.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2007
2007 bottle. Pours a rich copperish amber with striking clarity and a bit of a white head that settles to a thin head leaving nice lacing. Resinous nose. Bigger malt. This is like a big bad fresh SNPA. A little spicy. Perhaps the malt notes are less pronounced than in SN Celebration. The hops are much more forward. This is a different and better beer in terms of nose for it. The resin is huge, the floral nature comes secondary. A little spicy and herbal. In the mouth this is smooth and perhaps a little bit slick. Moderate carbonation. Sweeter rounder malt than expected, but the hops dont let up either. Big piney resinous hops, not at peak freshness, but damn close. A biting lingering hop bitterness. Sweet round malt. The alcohol hides, but seems to bring out the greener more herbal flavors in the hops. A tiny bit of diacetyl, but its cut quickly by the hops in the finish. A little toasty too. I could see this replacing SNPA in my book, if it were only made year round.

Copper color with a big beige head. Piney hop aroma. Flavor of grapefruit and hops. Finish is pretty long and bitter.

mrant (330) - New York, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Smells of citrus hops. Pours a clear dark copper color with a nice white head. Taste is very hoppy. Grapefruit, very sour. Delicious, the fresh hops give a stronger more fruity hop presence.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 The aroma is a hop experience with citrus and pine followed by caramel malt. The appearance is copper gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is average. The overall quality is high.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 26, 2007
A nice surprise to find this on the shelf at BevMo. Pours clear copper with a standard white head, no different than their pale ale. Big, wet hops in the nose. Tons of resin and pine draw you in. Clean and crisp mouthfeel without too much carbonation. A hop party in the taste. Resin, grapefruit, oranges, and pine are balanced perfectly with the malt back. Drinks like an IPA with the hop profile and taste of an IIPA. Outstanding.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Thanks to Joebrew for sharing. Orange color with plenty of off-white head. Sweet citrus hop nose. Solid hoppy body with enough bitterness to make it thirst quenching.

Draft. A nice fresh hop ale. The aroma of hops is nice and strong without overbittering the beer. Pretty tasty.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Pours a clear amber-orange with a large, pitted, frothy, beige head that diminishes slowly, leaving sticky, web-like lace in its wake. The nose is of, well, fresh hops. Clean citric, lightly piny and mildly resinous hops with a sweet caramel backing; quite nice. Medium-bodied and super-slick the palate finishes with solid bitter hopped finish that squeezes your tongue and stays around for a while after you swallow. The flavor follows the nose perfectly with a solid resinous, lingering finish. A solid IPA and one definitely worth try.
