Notes/Commercial Description:
Upland's Harvest Ale is an American Pale Ale by design, but an ever more vibrant rendition by loading up our hopbback with freshly harvested Citra hops. Expect huge wafts of tropical fruit notes, balanced by a moderate bitterness and lightly toasted malt character.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

A beautiful looking brew, clarity and retention are superb. Big hop bomb of a nose with hints of citrus rind, spruce, tobacco, and fresh grass. Super fine crispness, bold fresh hop flavor with a hint of cattiness. Hint of alcohol ... Clean and grainy with a never ending hop flavor. Ample bitterness let the palate know Upland was serious about hopping here.

One I'd love to run into every year to come.

From: On tap at the Indianapolis taphouse
Glass: Standard US pint glass
Review from notes

An above average fresh hop ale, if the aromatics were a bit improved, this would be quite good. As it is, if this were locally available, I'd pick up a seasonal 6-pack.

Arrives with a 1cm tall head of off-white foam, small bubbles, frothy appearance. Retention is about average, the foam lasting one minute. Fades to a thin ring around the perimeter of the glass with a small, wispy island atop the center of the body. Lacing is present, good, bt not great, some lines and dots clinging to the sides of the glass. Body is a golden orange, of medium darkness, with light bringing out orange0yellow hues. Carbonation is visible in transparent body, though sparse and lazy.

Aroma is slightly phenolic, plastic-like, not as much hop aroma as expected, what exists is mostl like grapefruit that has gone slightly sour, with a dash of white pepper. Not sure if this is the brewer's intent or the tap lines.
Flavor is pleasant tropical fruit (guava, light passion fruit) with grapefruit and tangerine on top of a notable, lightly pale, biscuit, and caramel malt base. Front of palate picks up bright grapefruit, guava, and passion fruit with a pleasant malt backbone that seems to feature pale and caramel malts. Mid palate of guava, light passion fruit, grapefruit and tangerine atop a modest caramel and slightly biscuit-like base. Back of palate finds medium bitterness, guava, grapefruit, and traces of malt. Aftertaste of medium intensity bitteness with grapefruit, white pepper, and guava; malt presence is very subdued.
Beer is medium to medium-light in body, with carbonation of medium intensity, leading to a slightly fizzy mouthfeel (1/5), foamy (3/5), and smooth *1/5), the result being a pleasantly full mouthfeel. Closes dryly, with light stickiness on palate and lips.

Nice citra flavor in this Harverst Ale. Normally drink Dragon Fly but this is a nice change to another hopped up beer from Upland. This brew has a nice hops aroma and pours to a nice copper color. Nice solid hops flavor and a smooth draw with the right level of carbonation.

Pours a clean, clear amber with pleasantly prodigious head of white suds. Attractive lattice lace, too.

Nose is a lovely tropical mango, pineapple, and citrus hops mix. Very appealing.

Taste is smooth and delicious, with more of the snappy tropical fruit and citrus hops notes. A wonderful pale ale and one that I hope manages to remain available more readily. I will be drinking more of these.
