Sierra Nevada's Harvest ales are delicious.

A wet hopped ale uses freshly picked hops that haven't been dried yet.
Bottled/Kegged/Conditioning: Orfy's Boddington's clone, Orfy's Old Speckled Hen clone, SN Celebration clone
On Deck: Gumballhead clone, German Pilsner
Drinking: Old Ale, Bourbon Barrel Wee Heavy, Bourbon Barrel RIS

Damn! Is it out now?? I tasted this hoppy perfection last year and LOVED it! It's expensive, but worth it as a treat. Founders is my favorite "local" brewery. It edges out a few other great breweries in MI.
Day after day, it reappears. Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear. Ghosts appear and fade away. Come back another day.

Three Floyd's Broodoo is their wet hopped harvest ale, and is really good too.

I just had a 22oz bomber of that and a four pack of Founder's Harvest ale over the weekend. Delicious!
Fermenting, aging, kegged, bottled, drinking, etc... Who's got time to keep their sig updated?
The answer to all is: something (hopefully good).

Go White Sox!

Founders just released a new beer called "The Chronic". It's a bitter pale ale dominated by Summit hops.

Anyone know where to find a good Founders Harvest Ale extract clone? or maybe how to create one? I LOVE this beer!
You must brew the beer you want to see in this world.

Well, you have approximately 6 months to refine a recipe before you can actually brew it.

I'll dig around a bit and see what I can come up with.
