The burnt orange colored body was clear, and the head was one to two finger thick. The aroma was very hoppy, with grassy and herbal tones typical of fresh cones. The taste was less bitter than the aroma suggested, and had a tangy sweetness which reminded me somewhat of Smarties candy (US version). The finish was earthy and herbal, and the body medium thick. This was a very refreshing beer for me. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2011
12oz bottle. Clear amber-orange color, minimal bubbly white head. Soft but pronounced carbonation. Nice, juicy resiny wet hop taste, moderate bitterness. Good amount of malt here. A good but not outstanding wet-hop IPA. jtd6628 (362) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Below average beer. This beer had no aroma and a thin mouth feel with taste of malt and sweetness not much hop aroma or flavor. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Deep amber body. Mid-sized beige head. Light lacing and good retention.
S: Light citrus, perhaps some orange and grapefruit. Some pine cones and a rich caramel and bread malt base.
T: Malty base shines through while the hop bitterness is more subdued than the nose would suggest. Slight citric and pine hop characteristics.
M: Light carbonation is good up front but leads to a somewhat thin finish without any bite or crispness to speak of.
O: All things considered its a decent IPA. Despite being a harvest IPA, it doesn’t really convey the "fresh" hop characteristics I was expecting. nathan30533 (1022) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Good hoppy harvest. Weyerbacher never disappoints. Good overall IPA. Would recomend.

12 oz bottle pours a amber color with a nice white head. Aromas of pine, citrus. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Slipstream (2720) - USA - OCT 17, 2011
On draft at Capone’s. Orange pour, light aroma. Rich and bready flavor with some sharp hops. It is called an IPA, but my taste buds thought it seemed more like a nice harvest APA. SpringsLicker (3685) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2011
This pours clear deep gold with a tall foamy off-white head.
Sweet malt aroma combines with fresh hops.
Light bitterness that quickly fades to a dry finish. I was expecting full flavor here from the aroma and I only got a watered down version of what I was expecting.
I know Weyerbacher can do better than this. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle. Amber, clear, white head. Hop aroma - pine. Similar to a flavorful pale but with heavier body. Nice finish. Would have again -- very good beer. Jesterdeal (1986) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2011 Aroma of citrus, grass and notes of pine. Pours deep amber with a milkshake head. Tastes of pine notes, bitter grass and floral. Delicious and hoppy but slightly botanical.
