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.

On tap at brewery Golden in color with a nice lacing white head. The aroma is bready malt dominated with a slight floral hop scent hanging out in the background. The flavor is similar with a toasted bread flavor balanced with some hop bitterness. The beer has deep deep body body and a nice lingering aftertaste. This was the best made beer I had on this trip to Sierra Nevada

On tap at Humpys. This was a very attractive pint with golden amber liquid topped by a lasting beige/white head that left very sticky lacing on the glass. Pine hop forward nose. This beer had a very fresh, hot hop sense to it. Lots of orange peel, pine and some apple. The finish is very bitter, dry and long. Enjoyable hop head beer.

Light, easy drinking Ale with crisp refreshing nutty overtones and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Color is very light copper with a white head.

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!

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 11, 2006
draft at Najas 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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2006
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 wouldnt sell me a growler - you bums!
