This Harvest Ale is all about the aromas and flavors of the hop. It pours amber with yellow tints. The aroma is hoppy orange with light pine and resin whiffs. The base is toasty, smooth, and lightly malty to start. It then moves to a well constructed hop bitterness (nothing over powering) that accentuates the juicy piney citrus hop flavors that also include that sap-like vegative flavor one gets when using green (not dried) hops. If you are looking for a hop bitter powerhouse, this is not it. If you are looking for a beer with a big complex hop profile, Hop Harvest is the beer for you.
