Oh my. We have a legitimately wet-hopped beer here.

Amazing oily character with a nice spicy tone to it. Great earthy base to it. I'd love to know what hops they used in this one. I'll look it up later. For now, this is a very nice beer.

This is my 2nd brew from these guys and I am now on a mission to try all things Helltown. My new favorite brewery out of the Pittsburgh area, or anywhere for that matter.

The reaper's harvest was decent. It poured a clear copper with white head and no lace. The scent and taste were bitter...not much in the form of pine or citrus. The taste was balanced enught to make it drinkable. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was ok.

pineapply hops and rye; light, smooth and eminently drinkable. Just don't mistake the lightness for weakness, because this one packs a punch.
Might just need a case.

Helltown Brewing
Reapers Harvest

LOOK: Amber colored ale with an off white lather. Leaves a little lace and exhibits a fine clarity.

SMELL: Toffee, chocolates, floral hops, pine, grapefruit and mildly sweet smelling.

TASTE: Delicious flavors of hop and robust malt. Grapefruit, pine, and a spicy rye. Rich nutty, chocolatey malts are coming out more as it warms. Finishes more on the bitter side, with a heaping helping of resinous, earthy, pine-like hops.

FEEL: Medium bodied, somewhat crisp and very satisfying. Drinks easily given the strength.

OVERALL: Another high quality offering from the greater Pittsburgh area outfit. This is a world class brew and honestly, I feel a bit spoiled that this is a local offering.
