From Bruisin' Ales. Pours dark golden, with significant white head. Hoppy aroma, tad above average mouthfeel. Very drinkable tasty, though significant IBU, still some balance. Hop lead citrus lemon mint. Very good representative of an IPA, and one I would trust even to novices.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal and spicy hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid fresh hop quality in both the aroma and flavor.

4.13/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Polished tangerine with honey hued highlights and a fine yeasty haziness. The top third of the Founders pint glass is filled with an attractive crown of bubbly foam that is aged ivory in color. Cheese grater-like lace is impressively extensive and looks like it will stick around for the duration.

Despite being roughly four months of age, the nose on this wet-hopped American pale ale is still pretty aromatic. Sunshine bright citrus juicy top notes are perfectly complemented by a mid-range fruit peel muskiness. Assuming only a single hop was used (which is often the case in beer of this sort), I'll go with Cascade.

Harvest Ale is good beer that still has more than a little lupulin life left in it. There is no question that it was more aggressive back in August, but hopheads will still find enough flavor and bitterness for it to be worth their while. Another month and... don't wait that long. Drink whatever bottles are in your possession... right... now!

The malt component is slightly toasted and doesn't impinge too awful much on the (still pretty) fresh hop flavor. Citrus fruit rules the day, on the order of lemon, orange and white grapefruit. Simple, straightforward and hopilicious. What's not to like?

A gorgeous array of lace earns the appearance score an increase. The mouthfeel is fine for the style. It has just the right amount of heft and contains bubbles that stay in the background, yet tickle the tongue to a minor degree.

It's a shame that I wasn't able to experience Harvest Ale immediately after bottling. That said, it has held up remarkably well and is pleasing me to no end this morning. Hoppy beer is a fine way to start the day, spend the day and end the day. Good job Founders.

Given to me as an extra recently I was very happy to get this one as I missed out buying a four pack a couple weeks ago. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, I enjoyed this one after mowing the lawn on 04/04/2009.

The pour was very nice with a rich light amber in color. Nice small haze to it and lots of carbonation was apparent as it bubbled up to the surface. Huge foamy head of white made me pour this one several times to get it all in the glass and left tons of sticky lace on the insides. Tons of hops here as I lean in for the first whiff. Pineapple and orange zest, hints of lemon, very fresh and very bright, this was exactly what I would have wanted it to be. Smooth, delicous, and rediculously drinkable this very bright ale was a wonderfully refreshing drink as I relaxed from a long day in the yard. Crisp hop bite and a really nice long drawn out finish here made this one of the best session ales I have had in a long time.

Overall solid from top to bottom and one of the highlights for me in a long weekend of new beers. I would go for this one on a warm day anytime without hesitation,

Growler courtesy of Steve. Very generous, as always.

A: The pour is dark orange-amber with a couple of fingers worth of white foam. Quite a bit of lacing forms as I drink my glass down.

S: A big fresh citrus aroma to start things off. Lots of grapefruit followed by wet floral notes. The malts fill in the back end of the nose, giving the beer a nice breadiness.

T: Intense grapefruit flavor starts things off and is followed by more grapefruit, this time in the form of the peel. The floral character is still present as well, and the bready malt provides a bit of a balance against a fairly strong bitterness (for a pale ale, anyway).

M: The body is medium with a very crisp and lively carbonation to the beer.

D: A solid pale ale here, and a great beer to have a growler of. I thoroughly enjoyed my several pours.

Appearance: Arrives with a modest head perched atop the clear amber liquid; some streaky lacing appears as the liquid descends

Smell: Floral and citrusy, with grapefruit dominant

Taste: Juicy citrus flavors, up front, with grapefruit and pineapple tones; a hint of caramel appears underneath but this beer is all about the hops

Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation

Overall: What more can be said - this is one of the finest IPAs out there

Bottle courtesy of Plucier: Poured a cloudy hazy golden color ale with a huge white foamy head with perfect retention and no lacing. Aroma of bitter and citrus hops with some interesting floral notes. Taste is a mix between some floral hops notes with a bitter and citrus finish with some malt presence. Full body with limited filtration and good carbonation. Another fine ale from a brewer who consistently amaze me.

4.1/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A good juicy hop-loaded ale that is flawlessly brewed in true Founders fashion.

The beer delivers a light golden color, maybe straw. Light wet-hopped haze with good head formation, retention and lacing. A classic hoppy beer look.

Aromas are resiny, citrusy, fruity, and laced with a cotton candy confection note that gives good balance to the ripe hop nose. Bold and inviting hop aroma.

Flavors are lighter on the malts, presumably to allow the hops to shine. Though they do, the hop bitterness dominates the glass from mid-palate on. Lighter on flavor this beer is nearly sessionable if not for the slightly elevated alcohols. Somewhat lacking in complexity I like the no-nonsense approach to the recipe formulation. Alcohols take on a nail-polish remover taste that persists in the finish.

Body is moderate but seems lighter due to the hop dryness, malt attenuation, and mouthwatering hop flavor.

I would actually prefer this beer if they backed off on the IBU's and give me more of that bursting hop flavor and irresistable aroma. Outside of the nose, I'm looking for an 'it' quality that just isn't quite there.

T: Same as the nose with a lot of hops and quite a nice malt backbone.

M: Medium body with an all-around very good feel.

D: Heavily drinkable. This is an absolutely fantastic offering.

EDIT: This beer is still drinking well well after the harvest season. It's not nearly as hoppy, but there's still something utterly delicious about it--sort of a sweet bready flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that has excellent retention properties and hardly died down.
S: There are moderate aromas of citrus hops in the nose-grapefruit seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has lots of grapefruit flavored along with a moderate amount of bitterness, the latter of which lingers through the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The finish is very dry.
O: This beer is very drinkable while still delivering lots of hop flavors.

Appearance: Pours an effervescent, deep yellow body with a lush, foamy (and lasting) white head.

Smell: Soapy, citric-smelling hop aroma with notes of tropical citrus fruits.

Taste: You don't get more than a pinch of malts before the hops kick in with tropical fruity flavors and bittersweet ruby red grapefruit juice. Moderate bitterness with a citric sting that lasts into the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel.

Drinkability: A decent beer, just notr my favorite of the harvest ales.

Served in a Walter Payton shaker pint glass.

Bottled just over a week ago. Who doesn't love seriously fresh IPAs? This one pours a mostly clear golden auburn topped by a finger of light khaki foam. The nose comprises pine, sharp grapefruit, sharp cantaloupe, buttery caramel, and peach. The taste seems to focus heavily on the pine aspects, sharpening them even further than in the smell. The fruit isn't nearly as distinct, and the caramel has gone from buttery to spicy. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a pretty solid IPA, but the pine character comes off a bit much for me, especially considering the fruity tones imparted by the smell. Still pretty tasty, though...

Into a Duvel tulip...because it was clean.

Hazy and orange, sizeable off-white head.

Huge citrus=y aromatics, plenty of grapefruit in this...pure, unadorned, raw and up-in-your-face hops, hops, hops, hops...I like it!

Bigger blast on the tongue, fierce and fresh, juicy, and just bitter enough, but never quite too much. Hop flavor remains on the palate seemingly forever. I like that, too.

Crisp and refeshing, hop head-style. My kind of session beer, even at 7%. I could drink a case of you and still be on my feet.

Full body, full flavor, slightly out of balance, but that's what the style is, and that's what I desire. Wish I had more of this!

Much thanks to the pimpp!

Re-visiting this beer with the 2009 edition. The 2008 was one of my first reviews, so it was overdue for an update.

A - Mostly transparent pale golden body, with 2.5 fingers of creamy off-white head that takes a while to dissipate. Lots of glass-coating lacing and a solid cap. Love the foam, but the color isn't very interesting.

S - Delicious smell filled with hoppiness and citrus notes, grapefruit predominantly, as well as pine, and a solid doughy malt backbone. Very refreshing!

T - Very similar to the smell - hoppy and loaded with citrus, sugar cookie, and caramel. Mellows finish, with only a little bit of bitterness

M - Medium body. Crisp and refreshing, with a decent amount of carbonation. Some residual resins and a nice dry finish.

D - Very drinkable - I can't taste the 6.5% of alcohol at all. I could totally imagine kicking back a 4-pack on an autumn afternoon.

One of my favorite harvest brews!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, floral hops and light caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a nice burst of piney hops bitterness that is quickly followed by a strong citrus sweetness. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent IPA worth pounding for a whole evening.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Nice golden orange tone, some suspended sediment. Initial three fingers of compact foam, good lacing and a collar of foam stays over time. Aroma is a bit on the cereal grain side, barley malt with some herbal hops, mildly sweet and floral. Not as citrusy as would be expected from a wet hopped pale ale.

Sessionable is my first thought, wish I had picked up a six of this. Comparable to Alpha King, just not as aromatic or juicy. Certainly hoppy, but mild on the bitterness scale, more floral than anything. Very smooth feeling and ultimately session-worthy.

2010: Lacks the fresh hop punch that distinguishes harvest ales. Not one i'd scramble to find, but would drink it if available.

2nd review, I guess the server crash ate my other one...

Pours an effervescent honey color with 2+ fingers of pearl colored head. superior lacing & very good head retention as well

S: Lemons, biscuitty malt & grapefruit, plus some leafy hops once warm. I remember my 1st review having much better aroma, but got call em as I see em, this might one of those beers that is fantastic fresh, but suffers over time, not sure???

T: Follows the nose, plus a touch of flinty dryness up front. Grapefruit & buscuitty malt dance as this warms, plus some floral hops as well. Finishes crisp, citrussy & with a dryness that demands you get another one out of the fridge

MF: Medium bodied, fairly soft carbonation & superior balance

Through the roof drinkability. As long as I can get this & the frehness is there, this a must purchase every time I cross the Mizzou State line! If not the best fresh hop beer I've had it is in the top 3...

Beer is yellow and pretty hazy with a nice white head that falls away leaving the glass coated with lacing. Carbonation moderate. Looks fine.

Aroma is strong hoppiness with lots of citrus hops in there. Nice.

Beer is medium in bodied and moderately bitter in the back. Its sweet and has great pine and citrus hop character in the midpalate, its a very nice beer. The finish isn't dry its well balanced and turns out to be a great APA. I really like this beer.

A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, thin, white head of foam. It left soapy trails of lace.

S - It smelled strongly of citrus, grapefruit and pine. Some burnt toast notes, too.

T - Great roasted malt flavor with sweet citrus and grapefruit. The bitter hop bite was stronger than most pale ales.

M - It was crisp and very sharp on the tongue. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

D - Quite possibly the best pale ale that I've ever had. I regret only grabbing one 4 pack. I hope more shows up!

Found this thing accidentally in the store the other day. Has to be very fresh as I usually check Founders and haven't seen it before. It seems to be getting good reviews too, so let's see how it is. Poured into my great old oversized DFH snifter.

A: Pours with a light but decent lookin head, but it doesn't stay long. Before you know it you're staring at the top of the beer. It has a semi hazy golden yellow honey colored look. It does have some nice light slipping through.

N: Starts right off with musty fresh noble hops. Some pine and citrus, but lots of fresh hop aroma. Some light malts are there, but I think that's more of my mind thinking it, or perhaps I get some light sweet honey, perhaps. But lots of the spicey piny hops that do have a nice fresh aroma. Some grapefruit and tropical fruit round off the hop aromas.

T: Taste is actually a little strange. It has a strong earthy spicey hop taste and juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit tastes, but it also has a weird musty taste that I got on the nose but its more prominent on the taste. Not too pleasant either. A light sweet malt taste. More fresh hop oils and resin taste really sticks out, and that musty taste fades quickly after a few sips.

M: Semi thick, slight spicey hops, and decent carbonation.

F: Finishes pretty bitter and getting drier and drier by the minute. The strong bitter and spicey hop bite really stick around for about 30 seconds as well. Since it never seems to go away, it makes it a little difficult to drink as it seems to build up more and more. Everytime I swallow the bitterness is refreshed in my mouth, even when I don't take a sip.

Final thoughts: Pretty decent for a fresh hop IPA, lots of earthy spicey citrus pine hops and hop oils and resin tastes. Pretty bitter on the finish. The strange musty taste, the long lingering bitterness, and the fact that it seems like it's missing something, seem to take away from it a little. I really do feel like it's missing some specific hop variety, or some malt offset that it could use. I can enjoy this though, just very slowly.

This beer poured out as a copperish color with a big white foamy head on top. The smell of the beer was hoppy, as it should be. The wet hop aroma fills the nose with some floral and citrus notes. The taste of the beer has a great hoppy flavor but it fades into more of an earthy finish which kind of hinders my thoughts just a bit. The mouthfeel is a little heavier than the Double Trouble which I like and overall I think that this beer is very good.

3.8/5  rDev -11%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours hazed/clouded golden with a thick fluffy white head that descends to a lasting cover. Some patches of lacing stick.

The smell is citric - esp. lemon - and floral.

The taste is floral and lemony, so lemony that there is a tartness to it. Some grapefruit is there, too, though with just a touch of bitterness. A grainy/caramelish sweetness lies underneath. Alcohol is slightly noticeable.

The body is light-to-medium with airy carbonation. The airy could even be considered almost fizzy. I'm thinking that this one was overcarbonated. Possibly a production issue - possibly the way it was meant to be. Not dissatisfied, but not too thrilled with the feel on this one.

A lemony citric brew with a firm malt backbone. Not bad at all - though the feel puts a bit of a dent in the drinkability for me.

Pours a quite foggy orange gold with a thinner light creme head. Nose is pungent pine and salty hops. Flavor is quite salty and intense. Not precisely the "wet-hopped" characters I would expect, but really: how wet can the hops be upon delivery to Michigan? Not hatin', just sayin'. On the powerfully salty hops with minor pine tones there seems like some obliterated lemon tang as well. Feel is smooth and slightly thick on liquid and the carbonation is middle of the road. This is super hoppy and I can dig it. But the label says "wet-hopped ale" and I would have never guessed so in a blind taste test.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appears a bright golden copper slight hazed hue with a light white head forming thick atop the glowing orange body. Lacing is fine and even down the sides of my chalice.

Aroma has a solid vegetable affair going on with green onion and fresh resinous citric hops, a semi sweet lightly toasted cracker malt profile not much sweetness going on.

Flavor is more of the same with the green onion flavor hitting pretty hard on the palate. A resinous semi sugary sweetness wrapped with green onion and a mild garlic flavor hit hard. I can't see drinking this one in number, that vegetable hop freshness found here is much different than other fresh hopped ales out on the market.

Mouthfeel is oily with hop resins a bit hot with a mild alcohol burn, this beer really isn't really my idea of fresh hopped ale. A sweet sugar malt base with that green onion tone throws the party off carbonation was mild and smooth, but overall the finish from the onion stays on your breathe.

Drinkability overall is pretty weak, not worth the 5.99 I paid for at Fathead's this past weekend but I've been wanting to try it. I don't think I could drink a four pack of this stuff.

Update for 2011 exponentially better than the last batch...this beer was drank at the Sharp Edge for around 7 bucks a bottle and suprisingly totally worth every penny.

Pours a super pale golden hazed color with a bright white head forming thick, I was shocked at how light this beer poured. The nose was full of pungent fresh wet hops esepcially citrus/herbal/grassy tones, of course there is a light pale biscuit malt feature addeded in the nose as well. Pretty damn good bitterness balanced with enough pale biscuit malts just to take the edge of it, but as a whole it's a dank super hoppy harvest ale from our friends at Founders...damn I'm going to get some 12.99 4 packs at Giant Eagle this coming week a damn tasty fine beer that should be drank in number meant to be enjoyed with friends. I was buying this for a friend not familiar with the hops and he kept calling it the "weed" beer, by the way he was loving it. Mouthfeel was bitter dry clean finish, with ample carbonation and the drinkability factor was inasane for something so hoppy. I could have drank this one all night as my only Harvest Ale at the Sharp Edge where two different Founders beers were flowing on tap. I had two pints of Founders Centennial but I really liked the Harvest ale.
