Homegrown's 2011 edition. A growler filled last Saturday. Plenty of fresh hops in this one.

A: The ale is a dark, a ruddy caramel brown-red color, barely translucent at the base of my tumbler. At the base, orange colors come through. A thin white head, bubbly at times, wastes away to nothing.

S: Leafy, to the point that the ale can pass for tea. Citrus hoppiness does manage to peak through the tea. Bready grains underneath.

T: Leafiness is strong, mixing with citrus hops and darker light malts. Caramel and toffee, reminders of the ESB-centric preferences of Elk Creek, are bready. Tea leaves build on top of that, a surprising taste that is pushes further than any beer I've had. Sweet citrus bitterness follows, creeping past the tea and lingering as an aftertaste. The leafiness of the hops is intriguing, a stand out feature of the ale.

M: Hard tea, without the awkward Twisted Tea unpleasantness. The hop finish seals the deal. The mild concentration of the harvest ale rings my bell.
