I love these Harvest Ales. Pours dark amber in color with a nice rocky two inch head. Spotty lacing is left on the glass. Smell is bittering hops. Taste is juicy bittering hops with a substantial malt backbone for support. As easy drinking of an IPA that Ive ever had. Smooth, and juicy on mouthfeel. I could drink a ton of this stuff.

pours hazy orange, slight head disipates to a ring of tiny off-white bubbles. aroma is peppery, musty, citrusy, hoppy. flavor is spicy, peppery and bitter. finishes astringent and bitter. not unappealing, but a bit too musty overall for my taste.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel, and tupalev - bottle courtesy of J&K. Thanks, Jer!!! Orange-amber pour, cloudy, with an average head. Aroma of fresh orange/citrus juice, lush and restrained sharp citrus hops - simple and VERY appealing. Tasted just as it smelled - hoppy, citrusy and crisp, juicy and decently malty in the finish. I found the body a touch watery, but not distractingly so, nicely astringent and carbonated, and the finish was medium-long and softly bitter - really well put together, not a hop monster at all.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle shared with Jerc, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Mabel, courtesy of Jerc. Dark orange, good sized white head. Nice but mild fruity aroma. Godo taste - mild hopd, nice fruity malt balance. Earthy. Really solid and drinkable. A good low key IPA.

Lothore (644) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a clear, sunset orange color with a small, frothy white head. S- Very hoppy with a deep malt background, piney hops, sweetness invades the nose towards the end. Smells a lot like Alpha King only a little hoppier. T- Taste is surprisingly tame begins with grapefruit hop notes, moves on to sweet caramely malt and ends with a bit of hop bitterness. M- This is my main beef with some of the 3 Fs brews. I think this beer and dreadnaught are a little undercarbonated. Make it seem too creamy for an ipa. Just my opinion. D- This is an incredibly drinkable IPA. Marketed as a "harvest ale" so I dont know if three floyds was specifically looking at the IPA category but this could be easily sessioned.

blankboy (7583) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
Bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of jerc. Pours a hazy dark orange with an average size lasting creamy white head. Aromas sweet but nice and hoppy, a good amount of citrus & resiny hops. Flavours hoppy and malty along with fruit and some light sweetness. Average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Simpler then most of their other beers but its nice and enjoyable.

2008-04-18. Lightly hazy orange body with a modest off white head. Very nice aroma of sweet orange or tangerine citrus is really quite nice. Flavour has similar citrus, but there is a bit more resin, and moderate bitterness throughout. Average palate is fuller than average. Not as in your face as some of their other products, but this is really flavourful and nice. Bottle from trade with chicagodri

Poured slightly hazy golden orange with very fine, thin head. Aroma is strong of citrus, especially grapefruit. Hop character is strong and earthy with a great bitter finish. FFF always does great things.

DietPepsican (1587) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2008
hazy orange with a small white head. Strong citrus aroma. Flavor is pineapple, grapefruit, peaches, mango, hops, etc. Although the hops have fallen off a bit, they still come through and the backdrop is very nice in this one. Mildly bitter finish.
