Our Harvest IPA is brewed with American hops, cracked barley and hard work as a tribute to what makes our beer so special – the harvest. The deep ruby color evokes a bright autumn mountainside where a warm sweater, a good beer and the gratitude for the seasons are all you need. Cheers to the harvest, whatever it may bring you!

Pours a light slightly pale amber with a cream colored head.

Pine, citrus, nut, and a slight biscuit scotch malt.

Taste follows nose with a sticky resinous mouthfeel and a light floral note.

Sure, a bit beyond fall but better late than never. Pour has a nice fall colored amber body with beautiful lacing and clarity. Scent has notes of apple, spice (cinnamon?), and grassy hops dominate. Taste follows with a fantastic caramel malt backbone helping to ensure a quality taste. Aftertaste has a bit more of a piney/grassy hop to it with a pretty even mouthfeel. Overall a very fall beer that I will have to remember to pick up...in the fall.

We just rediscovered this beer by accident.... It must've come out in the fall and we missed it, but fortunately found a few more bottles at Stateline liquors in Elkton before it reached its expiration date. This is the beer that we used to love that was called Harvest Ale, but then I think ST stopped making it for a while, and we are so happy that it's back, but they have renamed it an Autumn IPA. I would say it has more like a malty, winter ale flavor to it, but it's not dark- almost black- as some of them are; it's a rich dark golden hue and absolutely superb! Glad they're back to making it and we will look for it again next year!

A nice break from the endless hazies but nothing legendary here. A more robust ipa for fall and it does that.

10/27/22 On tap at The President's Pub. Date night.

Beautiful amber color. Beautiful lacing. Taste and smell is slightly sweet balanced with hops. Another decent offering from Southern Tier. Not great or outstanding though.

Harvest Autumn IPA brewed by
Southern Tier Brewing Company with an ABV of 6.70% This American IPA pours out of a 12oz glass bottle into a pint beer glass. The color is a nice deep amber color almost copper in tint. There is also a nice white head that sticks around. Nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with hop bitterness mixed with minor roasted grains and malts. There is also a slight sweetness in the smell. So far Harvest Autumn IPA is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with flavors. There is a lot of hop bitterness at first. However the roasted grains an malts really smooth this brew out to a clean finish. There is nothing overpowering about this American IPA, it has a super nice balance to it. It is really hard to pick up on the 6.70% ABV in this brew, it is just that smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Roasted, Hoppy, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Harvest Autumn IPA a 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again given to opportunity to. Southern Tier Brewing Company did a super nice job with this American IPA.

Best by 1/13/23

IPA isn’t really a style that comes to mind when I think of Southern Tier, but having a fresh hop IPA from them is pretty cool. Their other fall seasonals (Pumking, Warlock, etc.) are quite good, so maybe they can capture the vibe of the season with this one too. Let’s pop it open and find out

Pours a cloudy brownish copper with 2 fingers of creamy light beige head that slowly fades to a cap and leaves decent lacing

It definitely has that Celebration-esque spicy bitterness in the nose, just toned down a bit. I’m picking up on aromas of rye bread, resinous hops, orange zest, wildflower honey, pine sap, and caramel malt

Oh man, this is just muted to a sad degree in taste. It’s not disgusting or anything but so bland. On the front end of the sip I’m tasting piney hops, caramel malt, orange marmalade, and light pepper. The swallow brings notes of pumpernickel toast, resinous hops, caramel malt, orange zest, and light pine

A medium body pairs with gentle carbonation, resulting in a thin and watery beer. Finishes a tad sticky with minimal bitterness to clean it up

Is it awful? No. Is it worth your money? Also no. It has the bones of what it wants to be, but unfortunately it just doesn’t get there. Oh well

12 FL OZ can
Served in a nonic pint glass

This beer pours copper colored with some golden highlights. It is topped with a fleeting head that leaves no trace.

Tea and citrus aromas

Iced tea flavor upfront. Then I get some earthy bitterness. Light citrus in the aftertaste. Lingering bitterness.

Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel

Easy drinking because it is a pretty simple beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel malt, bread crust and tropical fruit. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is of herbal hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit. Finish is long and dry. Good brew.

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. Best by 1/13/23, so plenty fresh.

L---Clear amber color. Slightly off-white head fadded to a ring and left very nice lacing.

S---More malt than hops. Bread & caramel.

T---Follows the nose. Minimal hops with caramel & bread.

F---Medium bodied with decent carbonation.

O---Maybe I just have no idea of what an autumn IPA is.
