A very enjoyable hoppy brew. Hoppy citrus aroma, yes like an APA. Lots and lots of foam in my cup, that cushioned the mouthfeel and the hops were so pleasant and easily drinkable. Great summer refreshment. New Zealand makes the best beers in the Australian continental region, despite being a tenth of the population, is it the hops?

2012 vintage.

Pours a hazy copper with a 2 inch foamy off-white head that settles to a craggy cap on top of the beer. A foamy latticework of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some earthy herbal hop aromas. Taste is of malt, herbal hops, and alcohol. There is a fairly high amount of hop bitterness that lingers on the palate long after each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer but the mouthfeel is off and the bitterness is quite high which lessens the drinkability in my opinion.

Glowing kumquat with lemony amber highlights. Although there's no coral red, the beer looks like a sunset in a glass. The head is a masterpiece as well. Not so much the khaki coloring, but the combination of creamy stickiness, the mounds of glassine bubbles and the wealth of fantastic looking lace. Wow, what a looker!

For a fresh hop ale (not amazingly fresh at this point, I know), the nose isn't as pungent as it could be. It's still a treat for the nostrils. A small-moderate amount of caramel malt rounds out what smells like mostly pale malt. The hops are citrus fruity first and earthy-spicy second.

Southern Hemisphere Fresh Hop is an outstanding APA. Since Sierra Nevada has a habit of brewing wonderfully delicious beer and since I love their (Northern Hemisphere) Fresh Hop Ale, the fact that this one is lip-smackingly tasty was almost a foregone conclusion. The hops can't have faded much because 66 IBUs seems... just about right.

The word that keeps coming to mind is 'seamless'. As my taste buds probe the beer from all angles, they find nothing but expertly crafted ale. The toasted breadiness of the malt provides just enough flavor and sweetness, stepping politely aside for the hops to grab the spotlight. Just as the brewers intended.

The well-chosen hops includes Pacific Hallertau, New Zealand Motueka (formerly 'B' Saaz) and New Zealand Southern Cross. The result is a wonderful mix of white grapefruit and orange zest, lemongrass, spruce tips and a pinch of white pepper. It's a good thing the bottle contains 24 ounces because I'm enjoying this one immensely.

Why can't all breweries create mouthfeels this luscious? It's incredibly creamy and supple and lightly tingly and... well, it's damn near perfect. Are we sure this isn't an IPA?

What a stroke of brilliance! Shipping hops from the Southern Hemisphere in order to brew a fresh hop ale during the Northern Hemisphere's spring. Since Sierra Nevada calls this 2008 release 'inaugural', it's obvious that they intend to brew it annually. Hallelujah! Hopheads rejoice.

Always glad to see these hit the shelves this time of year. A beer that is affordable and that you can always, always count on. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 05/28/2010.

The pour was amazing, rich amber in color with a great clarity to it and a large, two inch head of white foam that would not quit. Even letting it settle still left tons of lacing up and down the sides of the glass.

Aroma is deep resiny hops. Lots of piney aromas here, touches of sweet citrus, balanced as it warms with hints of rich biscuit like touches that lie just below the surface. Each sip is clean, crisp, and very well recieved with a sessionability that is simply outstanding. Long drawn out finish is wet, then dry, clean and nearly perfect, making you return over and over again.

Overall you really cannot go wrong with this one. Just a solid nearly perfect pale all around.

Pours a murky orange color with a dense white head. Rather heavy on the citrus peel aromas, particularly orange. A nice floral quality along with a hint of pine in the background. A touch of sweet malt is also there. A bit of bready malt up front, quickly followed by orange peel and a solid floral and perfume quality. A moderate bitterness on the finish.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a bounteous head that leaves plenty of lace around the glass

Smell: Orange, pineapple and apricot; floral and fragrant

Taste: Starts out with plenty of fruit, with pineapple dominating until mid-palate, when the citrus and apricot become more prominent; subtle undertones of resinous bitterness and caramel malt; after the swallow, the floral sweetness provides a underpinning to the bitter and malty flavors

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Really enjoyable, with lovely fragrant floral elements and a nice balancing element of bitter flavor

Bottle: Poured a light orangey color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of medium dry floral hops is pleasant enough. Taste is also dominated by floral hops with a floral undertones and a caramel malt backbone that is quite hidden in the mix. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well done though I was expecting a more prominent roles for the hops.

With extreme cleanliness and signature smooth bitterness of grapefruit-flavored hops, Sierra Nevada's Sourthen Hemisphere Fresh Hop Harvest Ale exhibits all of what's best about their classic Pale Ale except with IPA proportions and scale that puts that hop intensity squarely in the forefront.

Bright copper in color and with the typical dry-hopped haze, the beer exhibits active carbonation, building a very froathy off-white head that retains and laces very impressively. The appearance may be the epitome of IPA's.

The fresh aroma of red grapefruits, light pine resin, and the everso floral character of freshly picked herbs and wild grasses all swirl into an intense boquet of hops. Backed by the support of lightly caramel malts give the impression of graham crackers.

Flavors closely mimic those of aroma. Sweet caramel, bread, and malt strike first shorly before the soft acidity of grapefruit, lemon grass, and orange zest begin to take over at mid palate. Citrusy hops fade into a strengthening bitterness that always resides on the smoother side of bitterness and refraining from harshness or bite. Low on esters and other spice, the beer's maltiness supports the hops wonderfully while ushering in just enough sweetness to add complexity and richness. A beautiful beer.

Creamy and rich early, the beer has a medium-full texture that subsides considerably at mid palate and allowing for a crisp, clean, and drying bitterness late- ushering in the next sip.

This beer is all of what's best about their original Pale Ale, just scaled up to appease the more discriminating beer drinker. Amazing beer and price-pointed to move! Hat's off to Sierra Nevada!

A: Pours a bright amber/copper with a nice white head.

S: Plenty of fresh citrus hops dominate alongside a little bit of spice and some caramel malt aroma.

T: Fresh wet hops for sure. Nothing particularly special compared with the other fresh-hop ales; maybe this just means that I like Northern Hemisphere hops a lot more.

M: Nice, smooth, and dry. Good work here.

D: A little bit dry overall; something I don't normally mind, but with the hop taste not being particularly overassertive, not something I keep reaching back for.

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

A: The beer poured very cloudy light amber in color with a finger sized off white head that slowly died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface. A light to moderate amount of carbonation is visible from the rising bubbles.
S: There are moderate aromas of citrus, floral and pine resin hops in the nose along with some hints of caramel.
T: The taste is very well balanced between malts and hops; there are flavors of citrus and pine resin from the hops and caramel and toffee from the malts. The hop bitterness is not overpowering in any way.
M: It feels medium-bodied, creamy and smooth on the palate; there is a amount of carbonation along with a mild amount of dryness in the finish.
D: The beer is packed with flavors of hops and isn't that difficult to drink because it's not overly bitter. I definitely want to try this again because the fresh hops impart a unique flavor.

On tap at the 1st Street Draft House in W-S,came in a 12oz nonic a a clear copper with a tight clingy 1/2 white head.Citrus and pine wich wasnt unexpected dominate the nose along with a whif of caramel malt,a nice shot of fresh resiny hop really hits on the palate lingering into a biscuity slightly sweet malt base and then the hop profile shows through into a piney finish.I had this in the bottle and found it to be kinda boreing on tap the hop profile showed through much more.

Served in a Devil's Backbone willibecher.

Pours a clear deep amber with a thumb of cream-colored froth on top, which leaves some thick lacing as it dies away. The nose is citrus hops, orange peel, grapefruit, and raisins. Didn't see that last one coming, but I'm not really gonna argue here. The taste is loaded with hops, showcasing pine and sharp grapefruit flavors. The malt backbone of caramel and toffee comes through pretty well too. The body is, at best, a light medium, with a moderately active carbonation and a smooth, dry finish. A solid IPA from the venerable brewery out Californey way.

This beer appears a clear pale golden hue, with two fingers of thin creamy white head, which renders a thin wall of lace as it recedes. It smells of dry citrus, mostly grapefruit, and bready caramel malt. The taste is mostly in-line with the aroma - big citrus hops, a bit of edgy pine, and more caramel malt. The carbonation is moderate, the body medium weight, smooth, and kind of airy, and it finishes dry, the piney, fruity hops predominating.

A pretty good IPA, even if the citrus components' hemispherical origins are lost on me. And the retail cost of the bomber form of this beer is a bit outlandish - I saw it at a grocery store for 9 bucks. Good thing I found it on tap, on a cheap pint night...

Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hop Ale

Clear, ruby red coloring, huge, puffy, creamy-toned head.

Lovely aromatics....rose petals, grapes, orange peel...berries.

Fresh in the mouth, fresh on the tongue. Great play of hops on the palate, nice little tap, buck & wing, then softly off...

Nicely balanced ale, this...good sweet malt buttress, nice fandango of hop blitz, softly fading...Medium bodied, long, hoppy finish. Doesn't bother the tongue too much, which is good for some, but not for me. Very approachable ale, nice and even-handed.

Picked up a bottle of the 2009 (2nd release) at West Lakview Liquors. Served in my Pisgah pint glass.

A - After a cascading reverse waterfall type foaming it settles to a four-finger dirty blonde foam with excellent retention and tons of gorgeous lacing. The brew is a slightly hazed fire-orange color with lots of bubbles, both rising to the top and on the sides of the glass. Looks a tad overcarbonated.

S - Earthy dank floral hop smell - only a tiny hint of the usual citrus or pine hoppiness here - and maybe a touch of alcohol. Malt character is bready, with almost a rye-like sourness to it. I remember liking last year's batch a lot more for some reason.

T - The taste has a nice toffee sweetness and spice to it that morphs into an zesty bitterness that lingers for quite a while and builds quite a bit. This is an unusual brew in that I prefer the taste to the smell - the malt sweetness comes out quite a bit more and balances the earthy hoppiness.

M - Moderate carbonation with a bit of burn on the lips and palate. Light to medium body that is quite smooth and soft. Pretty standard APA texture here.

D - The bitterness actually accumlates quite a bit, and the carbonation gets a touch bloaty over the generous 24oz serving size. Otherwise the alcohol is well-hidden and it goes down pretty easy.

I think I liked the 1st release quite a bit more, but maybe my palate has changed or something. Solid and reasonably priced session brew.

Poured from a 24oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish amber color, with a large off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is full of floral hops, along with caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong grassy hops bitterness. Then some sweet flavors of citrus and caramel come in along with a hearty malt character to provide a nice balance.

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

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a good beer that is worth drinking for a whole evening.

Had this about 2 weeks ago, review based on notes

Pours an amber/copper with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Great lacing & good head retention

S: Pine & biscuitty malt

T: Pine & grapefruit, plus caramel & herbal hops up front. More herbal piney hops as this warms. A hint of booze, breadyness & more hops in the finish

MF: Medium bodied, chewy with subtle carbonation & good balance

Drinks really easy, can't really find any real fault with this offering

The beer pours a hazy amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a solid pale malt scent along with a nice hop aroma. It's not overly hoppy, but it has an appreciable bitterness level. The taste is great! It has a killer hop bitterness that hits you up front and lingers in the finish. The malts provide adequate balance without stifling the hop character. The mouthfeel is good. It is a medium bodied beer with good carbonation. This is a damn good APA. It's well balanced with a tremendous hop taste; a well brewed APA.

Harvest 2010 -- bottled April 23, 2010 if I understand the code correctly. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Beer is amber and hazy, forms a thin head of off white tiny bubbles that leaves a ton of lacing on the glass. Beer is moderately carbonated. Looks good.

Aroma is overall weak but its kind of piny hoppy. Not much there.

Beer is pretty thick with a nice back palate bitterness. Its not malty but it quite heavy for an IPA. Almost chewy on the palate. Its good and I believe I've had this beer for the past several years when it comes out. Definitely not my favorite IPA and I couldn't drink it everyday, but its decent.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is dominated by citrus and bread notes. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of bready malt along with some caramel malt.

A - Poured out an orange hue with flecks of ruby. It had a foamy, off-white, two finger head that left sticky rings of lace.

S - It smelled very hoppy and grassy. It had a nice floral nose.

T - It tasted of citrus and hop bitterness. There were sweet flavors from the roasted malt. It also had a spicy kick.

M - It was crisp and sharp. A medium-bodied beer.

D - This was a really good APA. It is one of the hoppier APAs that I've had.

On tap at Delaneys in New Haven

A: Clear golden reddish slight brown color with decent head

M: Fresh light lower alpha hops, slight malt and touch of sweetness, slightly piney and very slight citrus

T: Fresh hop bite, again starts with lower alpha hops though, some crystal malts but mostly hops and pale malts, a little alcohol, the fresh hop bite picks up as it goes and gets pretty bitter, some nice pine and citrus starting to come in stronger

M: Semi light on the tongue, could use a bit more carbonation (hard to call since its on tap)

F: Very bitter, it gets very hoppy on the finish with some pine and citrus, very fresh hoppy taste which fades semi quickly to a semi dry clean finish

Final thoughts: A nice IPA, lots of fresh hop taste, starts light bitterness with low alpha hops, then gets a huge fresh bitter hop bite at the end. Could have used a little more dark malts IMO, but I'm a malty IPA kinda person.

A careful pour produces a three-finger thick, light tan crown of froth that just barely exceeds the rim of my glass. The head leaves a ton of lacing on the sides of my glass as the head slowly subsides with a varied, canyon / crevasse like surface. The beer is a cellar, reddish amber hue and shows a brilliantly clear, red stained, rich copper color when held up to the light. The aroma is quite citrus like with a nice hit of candied orange peel, ample lychee and a bit of piquant citrus zest. There also seems to be something that is a bit like a old, rubber bike tire-tube; this last is a bit faint, but I can't shake it and it seems to mix in with an herbal aromatic that is a mix of grass, slight hemp and pine sap.

Soft on the mouth, despite being pretty well carbonated. The beer has a lightness to it that makes it quite easily quaffed. A touch of warming alcohol lets you know this beer has some strength, but it is almost hidden underneath the resinous hop character and bitterness that dominates the finish. This has a nice, almost buttery, malt character to it. Perhaps toffee is a better descriptor as it is certainly not diacetyl, this is also accented by the creamy mouthfeel that this beer has. The citrus hop notes are probably the most dominant flavor (though the herbal notes are right up there) and lean towards flavors reminiscent of orange zest, tangelo and grapefruit. The more earthy, green side of the hops show up as flavors of pine, bitter herbs, some touches of hemp oil, perhaps some slight menthol. This is easily described as a hop dominated beer, the hops don't reach overwhelming levels though, despite that the malt character barely plays a perceptible role here. The malt certainly contributes to the mouthfeel and structure of this brew, and does influence some soft flavors in the middle of each sip.

At first I thought this beer might be a bit too light in heft, but it quickly picked up a soft, creamy mouthfeel to it that somehow reminds me of a cask ale, despite the carbonation; I think this is a side effect of the hops somehow, though I am not entirely sure. This is quite a nice beer, somehow at first blush I would not guess that I liked this beer, but the sum of its parts definitely forms a greater whole that I am digging a bit more than I would have guessed.

This brew poured out as a copper colored brew with a nice strong thick white head on top. The lacing was very sticky and clung to the glass for dear life with every sip. The smell of this brew is very piny and citrusy, the fresh hops really smell fresh in this brew. The taste of the beer is a lot like the smell, big hop flavors with a good malty sweetness in the finish. The mouthfeel had a nice oily feel to it with a good carbonation to it also. Overall it's another damn good IPA from Sierra Nevada.
