A - Pours a copper penny color with some haziness in the beer. There are 2 fingers of off-white head that slowly dissolve into chunky bubbles. Good lacing rings on the glass with each sip. Probably the best head I have seen on any Sierra Nevada beer.

S - Smells of citrus zest, pine tree, and malts.

T - Great citrus zest fruit flavors, some pine, and sweet malt. Hop bitterness is well done and does not overwhelm the palate.

M - Good carbonation. I get some hop resin coating the mouth. Somewhat creamy and very smooth.

D - This is a very delicious beer. I also really like the concept that it is created with organic ingredients grown at the Sierra Nevada company. A must try.

waxed bomber, beautiful presentation. pours a copper orange with a thin vanishing head. nose is grassy and earthen, with a resin type hop vibe happening. taste is not as hoppy as the usual wet hope ales are, because it quite well balanced. slightly thin on the mouthfeel, but very very drinkable. i prefer their "harvest" series, but i give this one extra points for the sustainable fact that its made with ingredients entirely from their property. not too many breweries can do that!

Much like the 2009 version, Estate poured out as a really nice looking copper color the head was thick and very foamy. The lacing left of the glass was very good too. The smell of the beer was very hoppy with some cirtus and grains in the mix. The taste was bitter from the hops and had a nice sweetness as well. The mouthfeel is smooth and leaves a dry mouth kind of feeling. Overall i found this to be the same beer as the 2009. I'm not sure what's different about them that they retired them each year. I like the appearance of this one more only because of what they've done with the bottling. All in all, very good all around.

A: The beer is hazy orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pine resin, earthy and grapefruit hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of ruby red grapefruit and earthy hops along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness and hints of underlying caramel malts. The hop flavors linger though the finish, which also has some notes of herbal hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has an interesting profile of fresh hop flavors and is quite drinkable because it isn't overly bitter.

Note: 2012 vintage

Finally got a chance to try this one, love Sierra Nevada beers so was looking forward to this one. I always find it that even though they make tons of IPAs, they all have their own "identity" and this one is no different. For me, it was very not hoppy for an IPA and had a great malt backbone to it that was actually the most prominent part of the mouthfeel and taste. Well balanced and not the usual bitterness you've come to expect, but a nice smooth IPA. Solid beer and worthy trying.

A nice and crisp IPA with the signaure Sierra Nevada 'house' flavors and crisp mouthfeel and finish. But without any extraordinary features, this beer seems content with only being 'good'.

Medium copper to amber in color, the beer carries a mild haze, sturdy foam stance, good retention, and lace. A very nice looking IPA.

Aromas pick up on the grapefruit and ginger spice character that is represented in their flagship Pale Ale. Intensity of aromas are tilted toward the hops, but with a subtle rebuttal from caramel scent. No esters or phenolics lead to a very clean scent.

Flavors fare similarly- Sharp grapefruit flavors seem to be all Cascade. Definately a standout, the beer takes on the taste and bitterness of the citrus fruit piths for a bitey, sharp, resiny taste. Malt flavor resembles graham cracker, ginger bread, and soft caramelized sugars; but these take a far backseat to the citrus hops.

With the signature crisp, clean, and refreshing feel of the Pale Ale, the IPA creates more of a dry finish from its increase in hop proportions and alcoholic depth. This keeps the creamy upstart but a more dramatic step into the fleeting sweetness and closing dryness.

Of course this is a delightful beer, but we are growing more and more accustomed to a much brighter and zestier hop flavor and aroma than what is common from Sierra Nevada house character.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

25.4oz bottle, with a solid green wax neck covering, that cracks into a few too many small pieces for my liking as it dig for the cap. No dating info, and procured from a wee little 'gem' of a store in Hawi, Hawaii.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden colour, with two fingers of foamy and bubbly ecru head, which leaves a nice, tightly honeycombed pattern of lace around the glass as it evenly recedes.

It smells of very mild and bland citrus pith, some zingy leafy hops, and an equally understated bready caramel malt sweetness. The taste is subtle grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit hops, a further, late-arriving herbal weediness, and equally muted bready, crackery malt. A tiny warming arises alongside the elevated pace of local environment-induced warming .

The bubbles are quite weak and powerless, the body a so-so middleweight, and 'smooth' in the same vein. It finishes with a final flourish of meekness, the hops and malt taking it ridiculously easy.

An underwhelming offering, but yet one also totally lacking in overt offensiveness, so, given my current lanai-facing situation, I can't fault it _too_ much, now, can I?

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear amber color with a massive head; plenty of foam sticks to the side of the pint glass

Smell: Grassy grapefruit

Taste: The pale malt allows the grassy grapefruit to take over the flavor profile from the get go and to build through mid-palate and after the swallow, where a hint of wintergreen kicks in and lingers to the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Looking at the bottle with the waxed top, I guess I was expecting something more. but this appears to be a repeat of similarly named beers from prior years; nice, but I feel a little deceived by the marketing gimmick

Really nice copper orange body with trailing streams of carbonation, very dense and sticky head that craters on the surface. It leaves thick concentric rings of lacing around the edges of the glass. Creamy texture to the foam.

Aroma is slightly sweet and malty underneath a mildly floral and understated citrusy hop bouquet. Cut grass and herbal notes in the flavor. A moderate earthy hop bitterness builds, dandelion greens, pine resin, biscuity malt, and a clean finish with lingering traces of both fresh hops and malt. Melon or cantaloupe notes surface towards the end of the glass.

Medium bodied, light enough to quaff a few times. Bitterness isn't overwhelming, fairly balanced overall. For my money though, i'd rather be drinking local: Broodoo, Daisy Cutter, or Flossmoor's IPAs. More bold hop character in those. The mildness of this keeps it from being more than just "above average".

Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of green hops with light sweet notes and light bitter notes. Taste is a solid mix between some green hops with a solid caramel malt backbone with medium amount of residual sugars. Green hops notes are really pleasant with some good notes of citrus flavours. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Really good wet hop ale and something I would love to have more regular access to.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark reddish amber with a finger of off white head that has good retention and great lacing.

Smell: Citrus peel hop bitterness, very fresh smelling. The hops seem a bit peppery. Good amount of malt sweetness helps the citrus fruit notes come out.

Taste: Very bitter citrus peel hops dominate the tongue. Some nice sweet, bready malt backs up the hops. Really nice IPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with smooth carbonation and a very dry finish.

Overall: This is a really good fresh hop IPA. The hop profile is really nice. A little more malt might help, but no complaints here.

Pours a coppery golden color beneath a big off white biscuity head. The head very slowly recedes leaving a nice lacing with good retention.

The aroma is a non overbearing citrus wet hop with slight hints of some sweet floras in the background.

The taste is right inline with the aroma, nice wet hops with some citrus, light wet grasses with a very light lemony sweetness finish. Leaving a light citrus sweet and quite dry aftertaste.

A good IPA but one can find IPA's of similar tastes for quite a bit less but still worth getting a bottle or two of these.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Initially poured fairly hard into a tulip, bringing a two to three-finger off white head with some larger carbonation bubbles on top. Fairly thick from the sides and clinging in a nearly-uniform pattern as the head recedes. Color is a medium, transparent copper color. Hints of a reddish hue as well.

A long sniff after a lengthy swirl reveals some muted aromas of earthy hops and a tad bit of pale malt. Second whiff reveals some more floral hops along with hints of pine. As of yet, not getting any of the citrus notes mentioned on the label. Time will tell as this one warms up a bit.

First sip is a bit mild, although it's still fairly chilled. Some of the base malt comes through with a very mild caramel flavor. Prickly carbonation on the front of my tongue and then smooth throughout. The finish is dry on the center of my tongue, although neither hop flavor nor bitterness have really come through at this point. Additionally, there's a mild, alcohol-type heat coming through, which I've grown to associate with wet hopped ales. This is pleasant and associates well with the quaint bitterness.

As the head starts to finally recede, spots of lacing dot the walls of the glass and a thin film coats the top of the brew. As it warms, both the taste and smell are still fairly muted. Much less hoppy than I would expect from Sierra, especially on their first fully homegrown ale. The taste is fairly bright and crisp, with a fairly light mouthfeel contributing just enough carbonation to carry the soft bitterness.

In the end, this is a bit of a disappointment, as I expected much more on this inaugural brew. However, this is also Sierra being a victim of their own success. I expect so much of all their beers--especially the hop-centric ones--that I can't help but wish that there was a little something more to this.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/9/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, balance, and robustness of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent wet hop IPA. All around great robustness, balance, and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A - Pours with a big three finger head, resting on top of clear, amber-brown body. The foam settles slowly and leaves thick lace.

S - Herbal pine hops with a strong malt backbone. Lots of caramel and toasted grain with a little bit of citrus hiding in the background.

T - Brown, caramel malt flavors up front with a strong character of toasted grain. Pine hops appear in the middle with some lemony notes. The toasted character darkens to light roast in the finish with strong, pithy bitterness and a note of burnt toast that lingers in the aftertaste.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - There is some nice hop character here, especially in the aroma, but the pine essence is obscured by the thick, toasty malt. There is too much dry toast and as it intensifies towards the finish it really muddles the hop character to the point that it is really nothing more than pithy bitterness in the aftertaste. This is very similar to the other harvest beers that I have had from Sierra Nevada and I am once again disappointed that they have taken what could have been a nice, hop centered beer and weighed it down with burnt toast. Certainly not a drain pour, but this really isn't something that I would drink again.

Poured a rich brilliant bronze into a imperial nonic with a large sticky slight off white head that left globs of lace as it settles oh so slowly into a frothy mass.Big citric and floral hop aromas over top of a real noticeable caramel/biscuit malt base.Flavors burst with earthy and citric fresh hops,again the caramel base is big and holds up well to the hops.This is a nice beer,fresh hop goodness,not the most complex but highly drinkable.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a deep golden brown color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of piney hops bitterness that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of caramel & citrus. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a really solid and flavorful IPA worth drinking for a whole evening.

Full of fresh flavors. Nice amber color. Really nice floral nose. It doesn't seem at all like an IPA at first taste. You could call it a Pale Ale or even an Amber. Best feature is the luscious creamy mouthfeel, more like a German Kellerbier. Enough malt to be full-bodied and substantial. Eventually the hops take over. Hops are very fragrant and less intensely bitter. Sharp and a touch of resiny flavor. Thoroughly drinkable but it does get bitter after a while. But that seems to be the point.

A: Pours a crystal clear darker copper in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some garnet red highlights. The beer has a three finger thick dense frothy light beige head that slowly reduces to a quarter finger thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel malt with a light amount of nuttiness to the malt smells. There are some pretty strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit/lemon, earthy, floral, and just a touch of pine hops - there are tons of hops aromas.

T: The beer starts out with light to moderate flavors of caramel malts with some sweetness and just a hint of almond nuttiness. There are strong flavors of the different hops and they taste really fresh (like fresh cut grass) - citrus/grapefruit/lemon and pine with some notes of floral and earthy hops. Moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers for quite awhile.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slight amounts of stickiness and just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: This is a very enjoyable beer - I have had a couple of the previous versions of this beer and it continues to be really nice. Very enjoyable and very easy to drink - I would be happy to enjoy a couple of more glasses of this one.

12 ounce pour - $3.50 at Brick Store Pub in Decatur, Georgia.

Appearance: Deep, dark copper-hued body, with good clarity, and underneath two fingers worth of yellowed foam. Scattered lace on the descent.

Smell: Waterlogged grains, a light hint of bread-scented malts with a very low trace of promised sweetness. Hops scents of citrus, spice, and florals, though none of them overtly fragrant.

Taste: Bready accented pale malts given a thin, thin glaze of sweet golden syrup. Floral, softly citrusy, spicy hops with a moderate level of bitterness. Very vague hints of sweetish malts on the back end as the beer remains predominately dry and lightly bitter through to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel.

Overall: It's good, though not too dissimilar from the Northern/Southern Harvests except in terms of price.

Sierra Nevada Chico Estate Harvest Wet Hop Ale (2008)
Sierra Nevada Estate Brewers Harvest Ale (2009)
Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown Wet Hop Ale (2010)
Different names. Same beer.

Autumn leaves orange with butterscotch hued highlights at the edges of the pint glass. The pour produced four fingers of bubbly foam that has an outstanding texture and is beginning to lay down a ridiculous amount of finely stippled lace. Eye candy for sure.

The nose is not as explosively hoppy as expected for a wet hop ale that isn't even one month old yet. Citrusy and herbal-earthy hops are arranged on a toasted-caramel malt base. A hint of garlic and onions make me think of Summit hops. Why doesn't SNBC release the ingredients for this beer like they do for everything else they brew?

As in the nose, Estate Homegrown's flavor is less in-your-face than it should be. Wet hops ales (which these guys invented back in the late '90s) are all about fresh, bright, green, resinous... HOPS. Sorry, but this offering tastes like a quality IPA that is 3-4 months old, not 3-4 weeks. It's enjoyable and disappointing at the same time.

The malt backbone, which is precisely the right size for the style, tastes like equal parts pale and caramel. The hops are most likely a combination of one (or more) of the C hops (grapefruit and pine) and.... something else that doesn't have citrus peel as its defining characteristic. Flavor boldness ramps up with warming and the bitterness is cumulative, although both are still shy of the mark.

Other than appearance (still great), mouthfeel is the highlight. It fits style and ABV to a 'T', while being as lush and as creamy smooth as hop mousse. Hey, that's not a bad idea.

Sierra Nevada is one of this country's finest craft breweries. Celebration Ale and Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale (to name just two) are icons that deliver the goods year after year after year. Whether it's the choice of ingredients or the decision to back off the hops, Estate Homegrown Wet Hop Ale is not destined for legendary status. $12.99 for the bottle. Ouch.

Review from notes 3/11/11. Thanks to THECPJ for grabbing this one. Love the bottle art and the waxed top.

A: Pours a clear orange color with a bubbly thick two finger head. Reduces to a nice layer of foam on top, leaves some nice lacing.

S: Tons of grapefruit as well as a little bit of wheat, a hint of caramel and bready malt.

T: Extremely bitter, lots of pine and citrus. This is really an enamel ripper. Has a fresh, earthy flavor with a solid malt backbone (it needs it), but the hops overpower it.

M: Medium bodied with solid carbonation. The bitterness is what really got me here.

O: I really wanted to like it more, but the bitterness knocks it down a few pegs for me. It looks great, smells great, and the flavors are solid, but not the easiest to drink.

Pours caramel/amber with 2 fingers of fluffy cream colored head. Superior lacing & good head retention

S: Earthy & piney hops

T: Follows the nose, with caramel & woody hops as well up front. Woody, herbal, citrussy & piney hops lead the way as this warms, slight pear & caramel notes as well, but hops are the star of the show here. Finishes with leafy, herbal & woody hops, some grapefruit, a whisper of booze warmth & a bit of dry caramel

MF: Medium bodied, low but firm carbonation that turns creamy as time goes on. Nice balance & some warming booze showing up

Drinks too easy, a very good take on the style. Wish I could know just how fresh this sample is. Tasty, but bloody expensive, a + $10 bomber. Now that I've had it, I'll spend my next/future 10's on Bigfoot or celebration or better yet some Founders Harvest

Edit: Based on reviews I will just say I would've loved to try a month younger version. Still a nice effort. I like it better than the average...

Originally reviewed on 10-16-2010.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Southern Tier tulip. It poured a bright copper color with a full frothy head filling the top inch of the glass. The head faded to a thin dusting but left some great lacing on the glass as it did.

The aroma shows a bright hoppiness to it with grapefruit coming through along with a nice peachy, pineapple, tropical hoppiness. Very good hoppy aroma to it overall.

The taste also has a nice peach and pineapple citrus hoppiness coming through. The malt is pretty restrained and doesn't come through much at all through the hoppiness. It has a moderate dry bitterness coming through in the finish. Very nice hoppy flavor to it overall.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and carbonation is average. Drinkability is good, it was a very nice hoppy beer overall. I really liked the tropical and peachy hoppy flavors it had. It was a very flavorful and easy drinking beer. Very enjoyable beer overall.
