I am a big fan of Sierra Nevada. I had no idea they made another beers… let alone three or four other beers! Heck, they could make ten others. I was just aware of their regular Sierra Nevada, and their Torpedo that I discovered while in Kentucky for Thunder Over Louisville. But I wasn’t aware of the Harvest. Let alone that the harvest was a series of beers.
The beer pours out like an IPA… smells like an IPA. This beer better tastes like an IPA.
The beer is VERY smooth on the front of the palate. It then starts to get carbonated about halfway through, then smacks your mouth with bitterness toward the end of the swallow. Then you wait… you wait for the bitter aftertaste to leave. But it doesn’t. And that’s okay… The bitter aftertaste is what I expect from an IPA.
The beer doesn’t have a big ABV, but that’s okay. Not all beers need a big ABV to be good. Having had the regular Sierra Nevada, I still think that one is better… but still, this beer is good. I just can’t get over that aftertaste. Maybe one of the longest aftertastes I have ever experienced. Good stuff!
