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.

Out of a 22 oz bottle. Pours a deep clear amber, nice frothy white head. Smells like fresh hops, grassy citrus, earthy piney fresh hops. Taste.amazing, perfectly balanced IPA. Bitter enough for but rounded out perfectly with the malt. Perfectly hoppy, balanced excellently by rich Carmel malt. Nice light carbonated mouthfeel. Almost too drinkable, I love it

Clean copper color with a big head of creamy, soapy head of light calico colored foam. Exudes pleasant and bright grapefruit, floral, and pine forest. Doesn't have quite the dank wallop that Born Yesterday does but certainly raises the bar on Sierra Nevada's IPA lineup.

hits near perfection on all points...the 'fresh' wetness comes through like a full house...highly hopped (of course), but it carries over a mega-maltiness...at least via my SN lager glass...this deserves a tulip vessel! always a winner

Ett högst medelmåttigt öl. För att vara Sierra Nevada. Vilket betyder att det är en gnutta superbt. Att prisa dessa ölgenier är det mest förutsägbara du kan göra, näst efter att gå på muggen efter ett alltför intensivt umgänge med dessa drycker. Välhumlad och citrusbetonad, föda för gudar.

Copper colored, clear, beige frothy head. Aroma is of malt, some caramel, moderate- fruity and floral, herbal hops. Taste is medium sweet malt with caramel, some fruity and floral hops, herbal notes, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. Nothing overly exciting, should try it fresh...

10th Feb 2017: second beer on my first flight at Devilicious, Temecula California. Really pleased to see this on the tap list as it has eluded me on my Californian trips in the past. Amber, golden body, the head a light beige affair. The nose was fruity, piney and slightly malty. The taste followed the same lines as the aroma with caramel notes pushing through the hops: semi-sweet with a mild hop bite towards the end of each sip: liked it.

Hopmaestro (1722) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2017
Aroma is mild fruity with malts and stern hops. Taste is fruity sweetness, light dusty malts, spices, ripe citrus fruits. Bitterness carry a bite that reminds me a little of licorice. Green and grassy notes lifts this one a little bit.

355ml bottle, packaged 28 Sep 16. Attractive deep clear amber with voluminous and persistent sudsy white head. Citrus and floral aromas with some caramel malt character. Big pleasant (and unexpected) whack of melons and floral notes in the taste, then an assertive grapefruit flavour and some caramel. The wet hops give it a really nice oily and resinous mouthfeel. Really like this IPA.

RasmusOtt (2850) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a white head. Aroma of wet grassy hops, resin, caramel malts and grains. Taste of grassy hops, slight citrus, caramel malts and a weak spicy end.

3.6
luttonm (6662) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Creamy off-white head, dark rosy orange. Rosy caramel, sweet malt. Modest wet hops, perfume and complex. Little bitterness, rosy creamy caramel. Tasty, clean. Lovely sweetness, very modest bitter. Nicely constructed.

Clear reddish amber with full head. Pine and malt aroma. Bitter taste, pine, raisins.
