Poured an orange/amber hue with white head. Smelled of citrus and had some notes of bread. Tasted of pine and lemon, but also had a spiciness similar to wasabi.

From 22 oz. bottle poured to sampling glass. The scent of Estate is of hops and rich citrus. This ale has a tan and yellow tint with a large billowy white head and total cover lacing. The taste is lightly sweet with a solid medium bitterness. On the tongue Estate is a medium body beer with fizzy carbonation and a good long spicy finish. A very enjoyable beer made with care and a ton of thought - nice job!

Excellent from the get-go, mellow, soft hoppy aroma with a nice billowing head, clear amber body, lots of sticky lacing. Resinous hop flavor, not too much, not too little, just perfect.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle poured into chalice. Aroma of hops, malts, a little barley and some slight citrus notes. Pours an amber brown with a thick fluffy tan head that dissipates slowly. Very very smooth with a somewhat complexity. Very fresh tasting, hoppy, malty, citrusy with a slight bitterness to it. Surprised at how good this was.

Bottle. Copper. Pine, earthy aroma. The taste adds biscuits, toast, spices of rue and black pepper, sweet citrus and roasted barley. Rich bitterness on the feel with a sticky texture. Awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Subtle pale malt aroma, notes of tea, light tannins, light sweetness - complex and hard to pin down the individual components, but the overall effect was very good. Good belgian-style bomber, good label. Tawny, clear beer with a tall, stiff tan head with good retention. Wow, finally an AIPA that isn’t trying to be a hyper-bittered, acid hop bomb. Bitter, but deftly done. Lemony, iced tea notes. Slippery mouthfeel with some effervescence. Bitterness starts to build in the aftertaste and the finish goes just slightly long. I could see this becoming a go-to beer. Proof Bottle Shop.

This goes down very easy, slightly wet on the tongue, fresh hop flavor, very aromatic and easy drinking. Toasted malt, a little sweet. A mix of hop flavors. herbal, citrus, pine, earth hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Grapefruit hop aroma with nots of caramel malt. Fluffy off white head with excellent retention. Clear orange appearance. Grapefruit cascade hop flavor is upfront with medium amount of malt flavor full of biscuit and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium full with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a descent beer. I would prefer a little less body to make it more drinkable.

This had a hoppy aroma when first poured, but died out by the end of the beer. Darker than expected, copper in color. Tasted great at the start, but was not so great by the end. More of an average beer. Good product, but not better than the traditional Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Disappointed in the almost non-existent aroma. Good balance in the flavors though between the malty grains and grapefruity hops.
