I was very interested in sampling this ale as I have not tried New Zealand Motueka or New Zealand Southern Cross hops before. I was not disappointed. I only hope I can find the other two Harvest Series selections: Chico Estate and Wet Hop Harvest.
(A) - clear, caramel color. Thick head. Lots of effervescence.
(S) - lots o' hops, light, fruity, fresh.
(T) - smooth texture, spicy with a hint of citrus.
(M)l - almost creamy, not heavy. Halfway through the glass it still had a one finger head and was bubbling away.
(D) - High. A wonderful beer to enjoy after mowing the lawn or while watching a ballgame. Very refreshing.
This is a very nice American Pale Ale that I would like to share with friends if I could find it in a case. I'd also be interested in sampling it from the tap as I'm sure it would only improve the experience.
