Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale
Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale on a recent visit to Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours an amber color with a bubbly white head. The aroma consists of grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and pine. The taste is bitter and dry with lots of citrus including orange, grapefruit, and tangerine. There is a pepper and pine finish, with hints of toffee lingering behind. The alcohol content is 6.7% ABV. I really enjoyed the Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale, but I would say that I preferred the Southern Hemisphere version from Sierra Nevada a little bit more. However, if you love bitter and citrusy hops, this is the perfect beer for you.
