2011 Harvest. Poured in pint glass.

Don't know if it's because I had this beer super fresh or if it was just a really fantastic season for hops, but this years Harvest was pretty superb.

Poured golden orange with tight off white bubbles that last and a creamy white head. Clear to slight haze.

Definite upfront notes of pineapple and peach with subtler hop aromas.

Citrus notes in the hops come through with the bittering at the end. Malts are subtle but present.

Very well balanced mouthfeel. medium carbonation.

Overall a very crisp beer with a well rounded fruity flavor from the fresh hops. This is one of my favorites for a reason!
