I picked this up at Quick six west in York, Pa. Poured chilled from the 24oz brown bottle into a Bass trademark glass. 8140c-16:37 freshness date.

A - A gently hazed dark amber/sunset shade w/ hints of copper and gold. The head is a creamy rocky beige of about 2 fingers settling out to about 1/4 inch and leaving a light coating of lace.

S - Spicy floral hoppy aroma w/ a nice full malty odor mixed w/ earthy leafy fresh resinous scents. Subtle fruity esters like apricot and citrus notes enhance the aroma w/ a touch of sour orange.

M - Sweetness and moderately full on carbonation floolowed by a bitter hop bite and spice which lingers until the dry and mostly clean finish.

T - A wonderful dose of english tasting hops which even though it is piney is very bitter, but has pine needle like sharp flavor which relaxes as the substantial American malt swells. The yeast is clean and accents the hops w/ a tinge of citrus , but not quite grapefruit, more tart orange. The malt is both toasty and slightly creamy w/ the soft resinous oily taste of the hoops riding high and making the bitterness stand out as the beer warms the hops open up and the taste is slightly grassy w/ more spice.

D - An excellent fresh hop ale, intense hop flavor and it has a flavor that is not your ordinary 'c' fest. A really interesting beer w/ exceptional drinkability.

I tried the 2009 version on 5/20

A -4 S-4 M-4 T-4.5 D-4

Poured chilled into a Nonic

A -Dark gold/light amber w/ a thick pale head good clarity and visible carbonation and light lace

S -Sweet toasted malt w/ citrus and gentle pine

M - Crisp moderate carbonation w/ medium body and medum bitterness w/ spice and mild astringency

T - Lemony w/ mild pine flavor and gentle sweet malt dry flavor w/ leafy hops that are slightly herbal w/ faint spice and mild alcohol flavor. Gentle fruit tast w/ hints of apple but mellow the taste is hop but has plenty of malt flavor to cushion

D This is a very drinkable APA-plenty of fresh hop flavor. I could drink a few and not get tired. I am glad this continues to be offered by Sierra Nevada. (2,095 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Big long lasting light tan head just sits above a honey golden orange colored beer.

Citrus fruits, spring pine trees, and maybe a touch of caramel malts aroma.

Almost a bitter aspect with the citrus fruits and light pine taste, I taste just a
little bit of the malts still trying to make an appearance.

A somewhat dry aftertaste with just a bit of the citrus staying behind on this medium bodied beer.

Somewhat a decent tasting beer, although Sierra Nevada has a lot of beers that are better than this and cost less and in 12 ounce and not 24 ounce containers. My advice on this one is to grab a six of Pale Ale or Torpedo from these guys and leave this for someone else. (676 characters)

Pours a clear amber with a decent creme head. Leaves a fair amount of lace on the way down. Flavor is bitter in the hoppy way you'd expect. It's pretty earthy overall and a minor salt edge is there as well. Pine character is here too and I felt it showed up as the beer warmed. Carbonation bites and the liquid is typical. A nice APA. Not sure exactly why we need a year round version of this style, but that's American for you. Who cares if we need it. We can do it, so let's just do it. (488 characters)

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 (462 characters)

FIrst review 6/7/08:

Appears a pale copper hue with a large off white head formed thick above the rim of my pint glass. Fine speckled lacing left behind. Fresh hop aroma citrus zest with floral tones as well nice profile. Flavor up front bitterness with hop oils awesome flowing hopped up pale ale. Delicious hop bitterness with caramel biscuit and signature Sierra Nevada yeast notes. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with hop resins and carbonation is moderate and even never overbearing or too much. Drinkability is an A plus all around. Can't wait to have more of this stuff, great concept I'm glad they pulled it off.

2nd review 5/14/13:

Pours a slightly hazed copper amber hue with a khaki beige head, slightly dimpled texture going on billowing above the edges of my glass. Aromatics bring out ripened tropical fruit, citrus rinds, fresh cut green grassiness that just works in a cohesive force. It's like hop perfume basically very aromatic biscuit caramelized malts balance it out nicely. Flavors work so nicely, SN has been doing this for years, lip smacking bitterness fades as the malts blend so cohesively with the big hop layers going on. A perfect marriage of the malt and the hop, citrus rind, tropical fruit, grassy hops collide into a wave of fully fermented malts caramelized sugars breathe a bit of alcohol depth to add more complexity. Mouthfeel is slightly resinous medium bodied but refreshing with each sip, the dichotomy of drinkability and big beer in one glass. Overall I never pass on either version of Sierra Nevada Harvest, plus it's always pretty damn cost effective on top of the quality of each bottle I've tasted. (1,645 characters)

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. (1,452 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Foamy, solid four-finger head. Sloooow to recede. Lots of chunky lace on the glass. With some strain, I can detect a faint haze. Otherwise, this is a lovely copper-amber color. Gorgeous.

As expected, a beautiful (if mild) fresh hop aroma. Light crystal malt in the background. Seems to be balanced.

More hoppy than the smell would suggest; the malt only shows up on the initial sip. The rest is bitter, culminating in the swallow and the long, long aftertaste. This is one for the hop-heads. The body is full and round; light on the carbonation regardless of the head. An easy, if somewhat high in alcohol, APA to drink...could pass for an IPA easily. (653 characters)

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. (560 characters)

From 08/20/11 notes/ Had on tap at the Iron Horse in Washington, DC. I've had this one many times, finally reviewing it.

a - Pours an amber color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, pine hops, and fruity malts. Some definite fruit and lots of hops; very nice.

t - Tastes of pine and citrus hops, honey, fruity malts, and bready malts. Not quite as much hops as the nose and more malts, but still nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a really solid IPA. I've bought bottles of this many times and will continue to do so. I also think it's a great beginner IPA as I've had a lot of non-craft beer drinkers really enjoy this one. Will certainly have it again. (774 characters)

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. (621 characters)

2008 - 1st release - 24 oz. bottle:

Pours copper with an off-white head. Some trailing lace slides down the glass.

The smell is lemony citrus with a background of buttered biscuit. It has a "Sierra Nevada" aroma about it (a good thing).

The taste is of sweet malt, some caramel, a touch of butterscotch. Herbal hops come in a bit late, but then hang on. The is an aspirin-like/tea-leaf bitterness/dryness mixing in with the sweetness in the finish.

The feel is a bit too weak to keep up with the alcohol sharpness, but is still medium-bodied.

An interesting beer. Pretty well-balanced, with a nice citric/lemon touch. Not one of my favs. from this brewery, but a nice enough, different, one. (696 characters)

24 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/24/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, lime, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, lime, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, lime, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice fresh hop IPA. All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. It is not as bold as most IPAs, but is still a very enjoyable offering overall. (1,438 characters)

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

Appearance: clear amber in color with an ample multi-density head that lasts and leaves plenty of lacing on glass.

Smell: earthy and floral hop aroma with a significant medium toasted malt component. 6.7% ABV is evident.

Taste: immediate hop hit; hoppy throughout but with a detectable malt backbone in mid-taste. Turns more piney, grapefruity and bitter in the finish. Unique hop profile: must be the fresh NZ hops.

Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation. Crisp throughout with very mild bite up front and a semi-dry finish.

Overall: Very good, certainly, but not up with the Northern Hemisphere version. (612 characters)

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. (579 characters)

2nd release

Poured into New Belgium Globe Glass

Pours a 1 and 1/2 finger full/thick creamy head. Leaves some well defined lace rings. Color is a clear dark golden bronze.

Aroma: Sweet floral hops. Bready malts. A big mixture of citrus. The citrus notes are quite sweet.

Taste: Very hoppy. All floral hops here. It is like eating a flower. A touch of booze is present and a combination of citrus, but the citrus isn't very defined.

Mouthfeel: Extremely bitter. A little creamy. Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Leaves one of they driest after tastes I have ever had.

Overall, this 24 oz bottle took me a bit to finish, but eventually, it was gone. A lot of hops in this thing. I'd have it again, but I'd prefer only 12 or 16 oz. (736 characters)

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. The hop flavors I get are orange and pine, with orange being the most prevalent. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (324 characters)

Review from notes. For some reason, this beer had been eluding me for some time. Finally found it at a store and grabbed it.

A: Poured a nice copper/orange color, slighty hazy in color. A white head formed on top, bery foamy and thick, about 1.5 fingers in height. Really nice retention and sticky lacing.

S: The aroma was very fresh, lots of pine, orange, orange rind, grapefruit, and cut grass. These aromas are what I love about IPAs. There is just a bit of caramel to balance it a bit.

T: The flavor profile is similar to the aroma. A good pit of resiny pine, some grapefruit and orange, as well as a good bit of orange peel and zest. The malt balances the hop bitterness nicely with some caramelized malt and biscuit. There is a slight onion flavor though that knocks it down slightly for me. Otherwise great.

M: Medium bodied with a nice level of carbonation. Very crisp and clean, with a dry/bitter finish.

O: An impressive IPA, one of the better I have had recently, and would be enjoyed by any hophead. (1,021 characters)

06/05/08- Purchased at City Beer in San Francisco, CA.

Presentation- 24oz bottle with some kind of code (not sure if it's a freshness code) next to the bar code. Poured into my Stone Ruination 20oz glass.

Appearance- Copper-amber colored pour. About a 1/2 inch head on the pour. A good 1/8th of an inch remains for the duration. Good patchy lace remains afterwards.

Smell- Very light smelling fruity and sugary hop scent. Maybe a slight touch of toasted malt. Not very assertive.

Taste- Reminds me a bit of an ESB. Very hoppy with a grassy and bitter aftertaste. Sweet and pine with lemony flavored hops. Sweet at first and becomes just plain bitter..in a good way.
Malt play second fiddle here for sure with a very light toasted caramel showing.

Mouthfeel- Perfect carbonation with a lasting...and lasting grassy bitter aftertaste.

Drinkability- Quite a fine brew. Hoppy for sure and worth seeking out. (909 characters)

Arrived with a finger of foamy medium-tan head exploding with CO2 bubbles and good retention. Color was a deep amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a cool mintiness like spearmint. Mouthfeel was medium with a definite hop bite, but unlike the usual citrus flavor, this was slightly grassy and minty. On the mint front, the finish had a definite minty cleanliness. Seek this out! (381 characters)

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.

On tap at the Oakmont pub and a recent bottle that came my way.

A darker shade than your average IPA, SH is a deep copper slightly bronze body that does not look all that thin. A big off khaki foam stood on top and left lines of lace on the way down. It looks tasty.

A nice hopping with citrus and small traces of pine in the nose. A certain amount of toasted and pale malt and some nutty appeal. Small traces of caramel with warming, and again hoppy plus spicy. Some bitter appeal.

A few sips in I knew this was a winner. Not a huge tropic bomb but there is some grapefruit and lemon in there. After that a small nutty thing with caramel. Finishes spicy going along with the hops still going, bitter in a friendly way.

The body is about medium. It looks like it would be more by color and look but it's pretty tame. Carb not a problem here, spritzy. There is a nice long aftertaste of GOOD.

I had a few, I liked it, will have again. SN makes good beer. (958 characters)

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

Appearance: nice orange color with a fluffy 2" head that falls to a merangue like layer that lasts. Thick lacing paints the glass.

Smell: pine and grapefruits are most prominent with a bit of earthiness in the background.

Taste: caramel, grapefruit slices, hints of orange, and a soft fruit sweetness comes up late. Bitterness is bold but not overbearing at all.

Mouthfeel: crisp throughout. Mildly dry at the finish. Medium bodied. Long aftertaste as the bitterness lingers the longest over the grapefruits and caramels.

Drinkability: easy to drink this one. This beer is a bit different than the hop harvest which I prefer, but definitely a tasty beer. (659 characters)

22oz poured into snifter

Pours an orange amber with a thin lacing of head. Smells of sweet malt and citrus hops. Taste is malts and flower with a mild hop bitterness in the finish. A little sweet but nice balance between hops and malt. Moderate carbonation, medium to full bodied.

Yet another nice beer from SN. Not as hoppy or bitter as some of their other offerings, but all around solid. (392 characters)

24 oz. Sierra bomber, shared with my dad on 5/23/08,

A: Pours a medium amber into a pint glass, with a medium cap of off-white foam, abundant sticky lacing.

S: Very floral, grass, caramel, honeysuckle.

T: On the first sip I noticed a striking difference in comparison with regular Harvest Ale. The beer starts with a much more direct pine bitterness than its brother, the difference in the age of the hops when used is clearly shown. Malt is almost brown ale dark, toffee sweet. Light amount of white grapefruit in the aftertaste which in turn is dominated by the recognizable floral wet hop profile.

M: Full of resin, very stimulating on the tongue, medium bodied, light carbonation.

D: Another very tasty and interesting beer from the guys at Sierra Nevada. My dad said, "Yeah, it's pretty good." Dirt cheap when compared with other special releases out there, I'd definitely have it again. (897 characters)

2009 edition, pours darker amber, with a dull reddish glow, long lasting typical khaki head, ever so slowly shrinks to a thick ring, and film, leaving nice thicksheeting/lace. Refroths upon a gently swirl. Fruity sweet and hopped up nose. Pleasantly hopped up ale. Hops emit tropical fruit notes and resinous goodness. Enough malt aas an undercoating, but the drying and pungent hops are the story here. Yet more quality and quite worthy brew from SN (450 characters)
