A fun beer that's completely seasonally appropriate, this brand new fall seasonal in Harpoon's lineup is a hopped-up amber ale that screams “drink me while you rake leaves.” With Cascade and Citra hop additions, there are bright hop aromas of citrus peel and pine upfront, with supporting tones of caramel malt, ripe peach and apricot. The medium-bodied palate shows off the malty richness of the style's core, while the hops take command once again through the pleasantly bitter finish. This is a welcome alternative to the more one-note, malt-driven autumnal releases
