25 oz. bottle. Pours a copper color with a white head that lingers. Aroma of fresh hop with a bit of malt. Medium body, flavor is a good mix of malt and hop, nicely balanced. Finish is a bit dry, slightly dry. Dry finish...not a bad brew!

From the bottle poured a copper colored brew with a thick, frothy head. Nicely balanced malt and hop aromas. Full bodied and silky smooth with malty flavor followed by a little hop sting.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with HopTsing. Found this lurking in the beer fridge from last year- no telling how it will be. Orangey and hazy with big frothy head. Smells biscuity, a tad citrusy, a bit dank. First sip is perfumey and sweet, then the bitterness kicks in. I think this is past its prime-- oops, will have to drink faster next time. If I come across it again I will re-rate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased as Sierra Naveda Estate Homegrown Ale: Aroma is fruity. Grapefruit with hints of pineapple and perhaps orange. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a robust, mostly lasting, ivory head and abundant lacing. The taste is lightly bitter. Fruit up front followed by some earthy and grassy flavors. There is a healthy bitterness in the finish and the aftertaste. Medium body and fmedium crisp carbonation. Oveall, an easy drinker. Very tasty and refreshing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle as the Estate Homegrown Ale. Deep, rich, amber colored pour. Off-white head, pretty sizable. Plenty of lacing as it slowly falls. Nice caramel malt aroma and a great fresh citrusy hop bouquet. There is a slight chocolate note I am getting as well. Taste is a very malty flavor with some caramel notes. Great soft hop flavor. A little bitter in the back with some residual malt sweetness. Very good beer.

Bomber. I don’t think I had what everyone is rating. A big malt bomb in a wax top bottle.
