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.

keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottled on September, 20, 2012.
Appearance: This is a beautiful looking beer, the body is a slightly hazy copper with a dense tan head that has excellent retention and lacing is left on the glass as it dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma is disappointingly weak. There’s a very light malt backbone with light pine aromas.
Taste: The hops show up much better in the flavor with some toasted malts, a citrus and pine bitterness that’s never overly assertive.
Palate: Medium bodied with medium carbonation with a slightly sharp pang to it.
Overall: The biggest disappointment I have with this is that this just hit the shelves and it’s already two months past bottling. Disregarding that this is a decent IPA and I think it holds on pretty decently, it just doesn’t stand out.

From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a frothy beige head. Tastes like pine hops, nutty malt, bitter, and bready. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like pine hope, toffee, and bready malt.

KyotoLefty (10726) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2017
Tap at Before 9. Nose is pine, grapefruit, grass, caramel malt. Clear orange-amber. Very herbal, somewhat grassy, resiny hops, grapefruit, caramel. Crisp flavor. Old school in its caramalts, but good.

Bottle @ home. Pours an amber liquid with an off white head. Grape fruit, pine, toffee, caramel, bread. Taste is bitter throughout with balancing citrus and caramel sweetness.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2017 Bra beska. Mycket smak med inslag av citrus. I början lite lågmäld men efter ett par klunkar kom verkligen smaken fram. Skön upplevelse.

Jabic (713) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 29, 2017
2017 Version. Ar: Mint, marmalade, and sticky caramel; black tea, orange, and black pepper. Ap: Copper and clear; large tan head with spectacular retention, resting in a cloud-like cap of slowly receding foam, leaving trails of lacing along the glass sides. T: Soft orange and toasted caramel up front; black pepper; medium sweetness; medium-high creeping bitterness, with a tannic quality and flavor of black tea; marmalade and orange on the finish with fairly harsh bitters. P: Medium body with medium-high carbonation; fairly soft; medium-dry finish. O: This beer has a lot going for it, but the tannic hop quality is just overwhelming and throws the beer out of balance.

Not a wet hopped beer to me. Beautiful dark golden brown color with good lacing but way to malty to be an IPA. Definitely malt forward instead of hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delicious drop. Pint in yard house Waikiki. Like a mellow sierra n cars pale but slightly more delicious.

gripweed57 (2914) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2017
On tap at Blend Bar & Bistro in Hamilton,NJ. Bright honey gold color. Small creamy beige head. Sweet fruit nose is redolent of pine and peaches. Subtle dry cracker maltiness upfront. Spicy hops in middle, then boozy notes. Mildly Carbonated with devilish, fruity notes in finish. Melon, peach and apricot.

ricke49 (92) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2017
Beautiful pour - deep color. Fluffy off-white long-lasting head. Hop forward no doubt but so very smooth. Bottled 53 days ago and still full flavored. My first ever Wet Hop SN of any sort. Will be more.
