Harbinger has a lot of fruitiness on the nose, many people citing mango, citrus, or passion fruit when they smell Harbinger’s aroma. The malty sweetness is subtle but carries through the entire swallow from start to finish. The malt character is accentuated by both earthy and fruity hop flavour. The finish is clean and mild. There is a slight lingering hop flavour on the tongue. The mouth feel is medium bodied. The colour is a nice shade of amber, with the foam being off-white with nice lacing on the glass. This is an APA created with the intention of being slightly untraditional. With a more focused “malty foundation” than most APAs it also has layered earthy and fruity hops. It is at once drinkable, interesting and thirst quenching.
