Growler. Pours a hazed orange amber color with a pretty small head. Malty aroma with some citurs type hops in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Taste isn't too bad, starts with a slight sweetness along with a slight citrus rind bitterness. Ends rather flatly and falls somewaht apart.

Schafly Harvest into snifter

Pours an off white fizzy head. Color is a hazed golden orange.

Aroma: Some fresh earthy hops. A bit of bready malts. A lot bit of orange and citrus. Not too much here.

Taste: Grassy/earthy hops. Some dry spice. A bit of orange peel and some bready malts. Some wheat maybe?

Mouthfeel: Bitter and creamy. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean and dry.

Overall, this was an easy drinking beer. It finishes without a lot of flavor. Not as hoppy as one would expect for a fresh hop ale. Fairly average.

Hazy light amber color topped by a thick off white head. It settled quickly but left a delicate lace. Aroma has some hop flower, a little grapefruit and even a little orange. More citrus and a mild grass in the taste. Very fruity with a distinct bitter finish. Slick mouth feel. Decent drinakbility. I was hoping for more from this beer. There was a nice bitterness, but not much malt or hop flavor. Mildly disappointed.

Hop Harvest I assume is supposed to be wet hopped. It basically seemed like an IPA or APA. Maybe my palate isn't strong enough to notice the difference. Strong hop presence with little noticeable malt. The smell is great and hoppy but the drinkability is probably a little on the low side. I generally like hoppy beers and this one is good but nothing terribly interesting.

A: Cloudy pale yellow to brown. Large white head.

S: Dank hop smell. Like the end product of dry hopping beer, I like it! Big time west coast hops

T: Again, DANK highly bitter hops. Citrus/piney hops. More aromatic than flavorful. Banana, fruityness.

M: Good carbonation, hops stick around. Decent body, slightly spicy that sticks around.

O: A little more dank taht I like but a good APA or IPA, whatever you want to call it.

A clear golden amber pour greets me, capped with a frothy ivory head, plenty of sticky Brussels lace as I quaff 'er down.

Big blast of pine, citrus with a touch of orange in the aroma. Cuts across the tongue with a woody resin, just a bit of a harsh touch to this one, but not enough to distract from an overall pleasurable quaff.

Plenty of hops from the harvest in this solid brew.

Pours a brilliant deep golden with a frothy cream head that lingers.

Muted citrus, resin, fresh cut grass, and onion form the aroma. Pine and catty hops add complexity.

Caramel malt, with a hint of sweetness, forms the subtle backbone, supporting minty, oniony, catty hops, with a lightly bitter, resiny finish. Grapefruit pith underlies the body. There's a bit of lemon present.

Body is on the light side, with moderate carbonation and a crisp finish. The alcohol is well hidden.

Onion overwhelms the aroma, but a well constructed beer. Not overly bitter, which works for me. Decent complexity.

pour is light orange and copper with a light haze. fluffy head and great lacing. nice retention.

light hops and light malts, slight hop bitterness. needs something more

light fresh hop oil flavors. very earthy with a slight citrus bitterness. malts are a bit too dominant and very noticeable at the finish.

nice light carbonation and a light body

this is a good harvest ale and maybe my favorite beer from schlafly in general, at least it rivals their best.

The beer pours out a light golden hue with medium to high carbonation that leaves some light lacing around to top. The beer is very aromatic and has a fresh and fruity (almost peach like) ester to it. It’s very much an American IPA by style and is a real pleasure to smell (thanks to that wet hopping). The taste is light with a slight hop bittering finish. Given the amazing aroma, we thought this beer would have a more powerful flavor profile, but it’s rather light tasting. Overall, the beer is very refreshing to drink and is easily sessionable for an IPA drinker.
