It's not easy to find Founders Harvest Ale. It seems as though if you blink around October it's all gone. Founders being my favorite brewery now, I kept an eye out for this one. It took a little research and a few dead ends, but I finally got some, and man was it worth it.

Rich, deep flavor. Nothing's jumping out, but everyone is playing together in harmony. Not too hoppy, but definitely "wet". 7.6 is definitely on the board, but it's so well disguised and it's super pleasant. You could down several of these and wonder which bus hit you!? ...I like this bus.
