My first trip to the brewery. They were cleaning out the mash tun and the whole place smelled great. Had this on tap, small head, clear golden copper with some lacing.

Aroma was nice with cascade hops, fruity and floral.

Taste was a surprise. I was expecting a bitter hop bomb, but it was a smooth hoppy beer exploding with grapefruit. Drenched with hop oils that left a smooth light bitterness through a long aftertaste. It's all about fresh hops.

Very smooth and very drinkable. They new how to use these hops to there fullest. A great tribute to a fresh hop beer.

pour is light orange and copper with a light haze. fluffy head and great lacing. nice retention.

light hops and light malts, slight hop bitterness. needs something more

light fresh hop oil flavors. very earthy with a slight citrus bitterness. malts are a bit too dominant and very noticeable at the finish.

nice light carbonation and a light body

this is a good harvest ale and maybe my favorite beer from schlafly in general, at least it rivals their best.

Reviewed from a growler.

Pours a glowing amber with heavy yeast and hop sediment. It's medium, sticky tan head holds well and leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is extremely fresh and fragrant with tons of just-picked Cascade hops over a thick and sweet foundation of caramelly, bready malt. That Cascade freshness carries over into the flavor, with lots of grapefruit and pine. Strong backbone of toasted bread, and caramel malt. The body is medium-thick, with a touch of dryness on the finish. This already tasty brew got better and better towards the end of the growler as all the sediment that had settled out added more body, smoothness, and hop flavor. A remarkably solid harvest ale.

Hazy light amber color topped by a thick off white head. It settled quickly but left a delicate lace. Aroma has some hop flower, a little grapefruit and even a little orange. More citrus and a mild grass in the taste. Very fruity with a distinct bitter finish. Slick mouth feel. Decent drinakbility. I was hoping for more from this beer. There was a nice bitterness, but not much malt or hop flavor. Mildly disappointed.

A: Cloudy pale yellow to brown. Large white head.

S: Dank hop smell. Like the end product of dry hopping beer, I like it! Big time west coast hops

T: Again, DANK highly bitter hops. Citrus/piney hops. More aromatic than flavorful. Banana, fruityness.

M: Good carbonation, hops stick around. Decent body, slightly spicy that sticks around.

O: A little more dank taht I like but a good APA or IPA, whatever you want to call it.

Received a 20 oz. tulip pint. This offering was part of the Lupulin Land Harvest Hopcoming at the New Albanian Brewing Co. The body was a brilliant cantaloupe orange color with a modest head. Some sticky lace remained.

Smell was muffled by the smoky surroundings. Floral. Pine. Citrus.

Taste was Wow. Ruby red grapefruit. Pineapple. Sweet, but not cloying. Hops oil but moderate bitterness. Interesting. I would drink this regularly if I could. Website says the hops used are Cascade.

Mouthfeel was smooth. Medium bodied with mild/medium carbonation. Solid all around.

It came slightly chilled with a perfectly even cap of foam, it looked the part. Head retention was excellent and the copper hue sunk leaving notches of lace all the way down.

As far as IPA's go, it was subtle, but the flavors were there and the balance of sweet and bitter was solid. Fleeting hints of late season spiciness accompanied a slightly citrusy and floral hop profile were appreciated.

Despite the thick and creamy feel, the beer just went down like water on a hot day. The carbonation added nothing more than a fuzz around the edges, nothing could distract from the smoothness.

The drinkability is fantastic, you may not get the edge of an IPA, but the bitterness is there.

tan in color with a slight haze, nice head and nice lacing for a cask serving. I'm already in anticipation!

The smell and taste are oh so hoppy, great job on this one. There's a nice earthy, pungent component and a good subtle wood flavor.

Body is medium and so smooth from the cask, this stuff is superbly drinkable and tasty as hell. If you're at the taproom this is a must-try selection.

The beer pours out a light golden hue with medium to high carbonation that leaves some light lacing around to top. The beer is very aromatic and has a fresh and fruity (almost peach like) ester to it. It’s very much an American IPA by style and is a real pleasure to smell (thanks to that wet hopping). The taste is light with a slight hop bittering finish. Given the amazing aroma, we thought this beer would have a more powerful flavor profile, but it’s rather light tasting. Overall, the beer is very refreshing to drink and is easily sessionable for an IPA drinker.
