Pours a nice rust-orange color. Pretty foggy. A minimal yet persistant head sits atop. Lacing is fair. Upon pouring the remainder of my bottle (very aggresively) I got a substantial amount of head perched atop the foggy orange beverage.
Hop smells give off citus and pine along with an earthy spiciness. Sweet and slightly bready malts are in the nose as well. Also a caramel sweetness.
Scales are tipped in the favor of hops but there is a nice malt backbone here. Grapefruit and mild orange flavors are happening along with a piney bitterness. Malt flavors are mostly caramel and buscuity/bready as reflected in the nose. Tasty flavor profiles with good depth.
Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied thats almost sticky. Smooth but very crisp. Great in my opinion.
Drinkability - Solid drinkability. I was lucky enough to have this on tap a few times over the summer. It's a great beer on tap or in the bottle. Hop bite is razor sharp. Bitter, but not overpowering. Excellent brew. I love all of the harvest series.

A: a little cloudy dark orange amber with good off white head and ok lacing
S: smells kinda odd to me, kind of a little spicy and piney with some malt at the end
T: taste is what makes this beer, its very well balanced and super easy to drink. Got a nice spicy and hop taste to it with some sweet malt lingering and a great slightly bitter after taste
M: good mouthfeel but i suck at reviewing mouthfeel
O: for taste is probably in my top 10 wish it was easier to find as its a great price and easy to drink
