Description 

Devil's Harvest is a golden, crushable IPA with a ghostly hue. A moderate dose of oats help cloud up the beer while grabbing some hop oils from the large dry hop of Citra and Mosaic. By only using whirlpool and dry hopping techniques, we have cut down on bitterness while raising the aroma in this small 4.9% ABV interpretation.

Devil’s Harvest Breakfast IPA by Southern Prohibition is a session-strength IPA and was judged as an American IPA (BJCP sub-style 21A). It poured very light, with a straw-like color and mostly clear into the glass, where it displayed a modest white head with moderate retention. Its aroma led off with a robust hop nose featuring resinous, almost grassy notes that dissipated with warming, an abundance of grapefruit and some trailing orange and mango. The flavor followed suit with initial palate-punching grapefruit-heavy hoppiness followed by pale malt to balance, though not to the extent of many IPAs on the market. The mouthfeel included a lighter body than expected for style, reminiscent of the beer’s pale watery appearance, moderate carbonation, and no alcohol warmth or creaminess. This taster’s palate was left with a slightly bitter, fizzy sensation quite unlike most American IPAs, even session-strength ones. This beer is very drinkable, but it loses the essence of an IPA in its attempt to make it a session beer. This beer’s drinkability comes with a caveat: drinkers who are not fond of grapefruity hops may choose to pass, while those who love that type of hop flavor and aroma may order multiple pints.
