12 oz stubby. The beer is an oranged straw color with a 3 finger white head over top that is maintained by a massive stream of bubbles in the brew. The clarity on this one is moderate at best. The aroma is full of dank citrusy hop that are tempered by an orange fruityness and a spicy pepperyness. The caramel is towards the back in this one and the green quality is not apparent. The flavor is a little less hoppy than expected. The first flavor to hit is a vegetative citrus hop with an earthy bite to it. The orange and light caramel come through in the finish. This one just feels a little wanting to me, which is in stark contrast to the tap version I had last year. Moutfeel is moderate with a very light carbonation. Overall, this one is very drinkable with pretty good flavor. The mouthfeel is a little light on carbonation making it just a little less active than I was hoping. I know it is too early for this one to be on the down slope, but it just feels like it is not all it is meant to be. Don't get me wrong, it is good, but nothing like the tap version from last year or the previous harvest ale from another company I just sampled.
