Harvest Ale

Victory Brewing Co.

Downington, PA

Style: Harvest Ale

ABV: 6.5%

Drink NOW the label commands, so we must oblige. Good thing too, because this fresh hop ale is a bright shining example of this hop harvest season style and waiting longer than necessary would cause its light to dim. Added to the brew kettle a short time after they were picked, the hop aroma and flavor is that of grapefruit pith, juicy fruit gum, and a snap of spruce. It’s rounded out with a subtle caramel malt base that ads a hint of sweetness and the whole thing finishes dry. Stock up if you can, then finish them off in short order.
