A pint from the tap.
Clear deep amber-copper with red hues and a nice white lacy head.
Piney hop nose, fresh and floral, with nutty malts and mellow tropical fruits.
Full hop flavor, sweet caramel malt, roasted nuts and medium bitterness.
Medium bodied, super balanced and highly drinkable.

This is actually the Estate Homegrown Wet Hop APA, NOT the Harvest Ale. But, RB thinks the Estate is only an alias for Harvest. This is not the case. I attempted to add the Estate Wet Hop, but the website wouldn’t allow me to select a brewer in order to complete the submission.
Pours a clear, bright copper with a tall foamy cream colored head. Excellent root beer float-like head retention. Ample rich lacing around the glass. Mild bouquet of grass and citrus. It has a slick, moistening mouthfeel. The beer has a perfect balance of grain and hops that yields mild, yet fresh and pleasant alternating flavors of sweet citrus to tart grapefruit. I absolutely love this beer. The style is in my wheel house, but I’d imagine anyone could find the specialness in this one. Superb IPA that drinks like an APA.

Almost three fingers of head on a hazy deep amber colored body. Beautiful.
The aroma is faint with some lemon and honey.
A bold taste: lemon and grapefruit bitterness all over the place with some malt sweetness in the background... way in the back. The bitter finish is long lasting too.
A crisp texture with moderate carbonation.
A wonderfully bold IPA, could use some work in the aroma area though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber, foaming head and heavy lacing. Aroma is grapefruit hop, somewhat faded. Hops flavors lean toward piney and heavily bitter at the finish. Biscuit malt background is just there, though there’s a hint of caramel sweetness, tastes almost like crystal malt though I wouldn’t definitely say its in there. Foamy fluffy mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a vibrant and hazy orange, with a frothy head. The aroma is strong and sweet with hops. A decent amount of citrus in it. The taste is hit me hard up front with bitterness and and hard bite at the end. A little too pine tasting for me.
