Troegs Hop Knife Harvest Ale

Posted: April 21, 2017 in American IPA, Reviews, Troegs Brewing Company

It’s finally starting to get a bit warmer out. Soon, I’ll be complaining about how hot it is. But, for now, I’ll take this weather. I love when the Spring flowers start coming out and the cherry trees bloom. We have a large cherry tree on the property and I want to try to plant a few more this year. Val wants me to plant some honeysuckle too, so I guess I’ll need to get on that too. Now that we’ve talked about the plants, let’s get to the beer.

ABV: 6.2%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Hop Knife Harvest Ale recognizes the time-honored tradition of hand-harvesting at the peak of maturity. At the end of fermentation, the beer flows through our HopCyclone releasing a bounty of preserved citrus rind, crushed jungle and tropical aromas.”

Random: I still love my fuzzy blanket on the couch even if it’s just a little cold in the house.

The beer poured with a half a finger of pure white head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was slightly hazy with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was filled with grass clippings, pine needles and freshly cut wood. The taste started with fresh pine sap, cedar wood and light grain. I didn’t pick up any alcohol. The body was medium thickness with high carbonation. It had a lengthy and sticky finish with pine sap. The bottle was $1.83, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. This beer was really good and was another solid offering from Troegs.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
