Sampled from a 24oz bottle acquired in a trade with mwompus.
A - A deep golden ale with good clarity and a thick creamy head. Loads of lacing.
S - Piney and floral hops with some malt and alcohol poking through.
T - Rich hop flavors with elements of citrus (especially grapefruit) and pine backed by a nice foundation of toasted malt. This is noticeably better than the other SN harvest ales. I guess going straight from the vine to the kettle really makes a difference.
M - Good consistency with a slightly oily quality. Moderate carbonation.
D - This is an ideal session beer: hoppy and flavorful yet light and refreshing.
