Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Each autumn's hop harvest presents an opportunity to assess yearly variation in flavors. Some are broad across all the plants in a region, others are specific to unique clones and certain farms. Each fall we choose two different varieties to add to our Harvest Ale. The first we receive straight off the bines and add it wet in the whirlpool. The second we add whole cone as a dry hop. Our base is a simple pale with a touch of rye spiciness to be seasonally appropriate with enough heft to support the selected hops while otherwise existing to flaunt the year's crop's nuances. Harvest 2017 was wet hopped with Hopsteiner Experimental #07270 from Emerald Ranch and dry hopped with Ekuanot™ from B.T. Loftus Ranches. Drink Harvest because it is a fresh taste of things to come.

On Cask at the brewer, pleased to write brief review of this nutty, fecund, ample harvest ale.
a) Lots of lace and stickage coat my glass as the golden, clear liquid draws down.
s) spicy rye, bright hops, grassy and nutty texture.
t) follows smell - with elite, bright, fresh grassy, nutty, piney hop notes prevailing over the malt pale base.
f) Smooth, clean, good food beer. (I wish it was for sale - not so today on 10-28-17.)
o) Compared well with today's 07712 and Shipwreck Porter - all great 4+ beers.
