Persephone Brewing Co. – Fresh Hop Harvest IPA Review
Persephone Brewing uses the slogan Farm Fresh Beer and with the new Harvest IPA this statement could not be more true as it is brewed with Farm Fresh Hops. This beer is a seasonal release and will not be around long so pick up a bottle before it sells out. The Harvest IPA pours as an amber colour with a thick and frothy finger of lacing head. From this beer comes a solid piney hop with a sap-like freshness. Caramel tones and a slight sweetness come in on the nose balancing the true northwest style hop. In the flavour the Harvest IPA has a mid-bodied texture and the hop is not way over the top. A delicate balance of hop bitterness, caramel sweetness, a nice malt and the added flavour of fresh hops makes for a delicious and very approachable IPA. Less intense than expected the fresh hop is also rather mild but adds a slight and delicious twist to an extremely delicious brew.
