Our Harvest Ale was the first American ale ever brewed with 100% fresh-picked, "wet" hops. In just one day, we harvest hops in Yakima, WA, ship them that night to our brewery in Chico, CA and then rush them into the brew kettle as they are unloaded at dawn the next day. This extraordinary effort creates an ale with unmatched aromatics of pine and citrus with layers of spicy-sweet notes that hop fanatics like us dream of all year. Enjoy!

    I recently tried the Sierra Nevada Harvest Fresh Hop, so figured this would be similar....and since I really enjoyed that, was curious about this beer. I would say that I liked the Fresh Hop better, but only by a hair. The 13th Release Harvest Wet Hop Ale is more of an IPA versus a Pale Ale/IPA cross. This has more pine, more citrus, more color....maybe a tad more flavor, but I found the balance just a bit off. Maybe it was too dry for me? Appearance is a medium orange and dark yellow, the standard color of lots of quality IPAs. A good quality beer to try, but if I would spend this price again I personally would choose the Harvest Fresh Hop Ale.
