Harmon Stryker Stout
Draught at the brewpub
Black color, with creamy head. It has a good body structure, and it presents a food blend of roasty and chocolate malts, with light residual sweetness, itís boldly bitter too, with some pungent hop resins.
Good American Stout, solid. Interesting.

Harmon Steep & Deep Winter Ale
Draught at the brewpub
Dark mahogany color, almost black, with creamy brownish head. A dark beer, bold but quite dry; it manages to convey both the roasty quality of the dark malts and the resiny quality of the hops. Similar to the CDA, but with an additional notch with the malt.
Very good.

Harmon Puget Sound Porter
Draught at the brewpub
Black color with brown creamy head. A solid coffee brew, smooth, with a lot of roastiness and no chocolate. A good beer, if you like ashy flavors, but not a Porter.

Harmon Pinnacle Peak Pale Ale
Draught at the brewpub
Golden color, just hazy, with creamy head. Now, this is a nice surprise; there is a good jib with the malt, that appears to be also a bit biscuity, delicate aroma of quality hops, fairly bitter, with a good amount of hop resins in the final.
Well brewed.

Harmon Mt. Takhoma Blonde
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy pale blond color with greenish hue, no head.
Light aroma of refined sugar. At least it has a bit of malt flavor, some wheat, itís fairly dry, with ordinary bitterness.
Different from other beers in the category, but too simple, forgettable.

Harmon Expedition Amber
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy amber color with creamy beige head. As usual, there is not much luck with the Amber, it has a good body strength, some malt flavor, high bitterness, hop resins, but hidden fruitiness, and way too much yeast, therefore itís quite harsh.

Harmon Black Tartan IPA
Draught at the brewpub, as CDA Black IPA, 8% ABV
Black color with brown compact head, nice lace. Both aroma and flavor have a strong presence of roasted malts and resiny hops, it gets a bit ashy, burnt in the final, and it has strong bitterness. Similar to the Winter Ale, but more roasty and hoppy.
Good beer, not difficult to brew in this way, but pleasant.

Harmon 80 Schilling Scottish Ale

Draught at the brewpub
Dark brown color, almost black, with creamy beige head. The aroma is mildly cheesy. The mouthfeel is very soft, itís a bit undercarbonated (a fair choice), with light caramel flavor and stronger presence of English yeast, a bit cheesy; low bitterness.
Unexpressive. Why is this even called Scottish?

Harmon Barrel-Aged Apricot Saison
Draft at Zeekís Lynnwood; evidently this beer is made just for Zeekís--presumably any location, not just up here. Pours a murky medium orange with a dense and creamy off-white head. Nose clearly shows apricot, as well as bits of lemongrass, barrel character is fairly mild. Creamy medium body, minimal carb. Apricots, light barrel, soft lemongrass on the mid palate. Sweetish finish.

Harmon Point Defiance IPA
Bottle from Harvest Foods grocery store in Moses Lake. Medium amber with thick fluffy head. Malts edge out the hops ever so slightly, but overall a nice blend. Some sweet, some astringent, dry finish.

Harmon Puget Sound Porter
Porter blind taste #2. Aroma is much bigger than the first. Sweeter, with coffee and caramelization. Appearance is darker than #1, deep brown with small ring of head. Tastes: like a dry, soulless, faded cola without enough syrup. Palate: light body, small-bubbled carbonation, chalky texture. Overall: I liked the nose at first, but the rest was a disappointment.

Harmon Puget Sound Porter
Porter Blind Tasting #2. A little more brown in color that the first porter. Strong coffee character from the malt, not actually coffee. Light ashtray and faint toffee. Flavor is a little sweeter with some toffee essence but not sugary sweet. A little dry finish and some sandpaper like roughness at the end. More dull than anything else.

Harmon Kamehamehaís Crown Pineapple IPA
Purchased from The Beer Junction, Seattle, WA May this year. Bottle 149/240. Had one of those feelings I shouldíve bought more than one of these when I had the chance. This was one of those spectacular beer experiences a geek like yourself would enjoy. Fairly bourbony on the nose with hints of tropical fruit and a bit of red wine. Flavors are abound in every direction with notes of vanilla, oak, pinot, tropical fruits tossed with hops, pineapple, and a singe of hoppy bitterness in the finish blended with bourbon alcohol. Fucking brilliant and beautiful. Wish I had more!!!!

22oz bottle picked up at Yokes
Pours cloudy golden with a medium sized off white head, good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, dusty and pine. Taste is malty, sweet caramel, earthy and pine resin
A decent IPA, a little too malty for me though but it does have a nice pine resin bitterness in the finish to help with the malty sweetness.
