12 ounce bottle, dated 10/01/15 (revisited 10/16/15).

Pour is a crystal clear golden yellow with quickly dissipating, one-finger white head.

Aroma is a lovely mix of tropical fruit - pineapple, mango and apricot come to mind - and pine.

Taste follows the nose, only more boldly, joined by the hint of some biscuity malt.

Mouthfeel is dripping wet and juicy, yet magnificently dry at the end. Bitterness perfectly balances by cutting sweetness but allowing flavor to linger.

Overall, Founders Harvest Ale is one that I look forward to each year. It is one of the few IPA's that I have had that can be so juicy, yet not too sweet. Makes me wish wet-hopped season was all year-round!

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a fairly clear straw yellow color. There was a small white head and it left some lacing. The aroma is a bit milder. Some malts, citrus and earthy hops, and slightly musty. The taste is good. Nice malt body. Somewhat tart/bitter flavor. Some pine and lemon hops. Nice.
