Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Once a year we scour the climbing vines of the local hopyards for the perfect hops to brew our Harvest Ale. Using only Michigan-grown hops, this amber-colored brew finds the delicate balance between hops and malt. It offers a full and robust flavor, yet still manages to be light on the tongue.

On tap at Bell's on April 27, 2012. Served in a pint glass. Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice golden color that is quite clear with a good white head and a bit of foam. The nose carries a bit of spice and quite a bit of European hops. This smells like an IPA with all European hops. Spice, earth, and herbal qualities coming through. The flavor is very similar. Over-the-top spicy in some ways. I think this would have been better scaled back given the delicacy of some of the hops that seem to be involved. Body is light-medium with a dry bitterness through the finish. Not a huge fan, unfortunately.
