COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is one of the only estate-made ales available in the world today. Produced with hops and barley produced on the premises of our brewery in Chico, this ale reflects the flavors of our surroundings in California’s fertile central valley. By growing out own ingredients, we ensure the finest two-row barley and the freshest hops on earth, from the field and into the brew kettle.

Waxed topped bomber bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ a fair head. Big malt an hop aromas. Taste is a crisp grapefruit citrus. Nice balance gives the bitterness some backbone and makes this very drinkable.

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.

Fatehunter (1092) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2013
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.

Tasted in 2009 (backlog). Cloudy amber in color with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of earth, moss, malt, and leaves. Taste is of spicy hops, light grass and caramel.

750mL bottle 2012 (no specific date). Amber color. Frothy head. Fresh hop aroma, with grapefruit, caramel, bread. Medium-full bodied. Great balance of earthy hops and caramel hops. Extremely drinkable. One of the best IPA’s I’ve tried.

PhillyBeer2112 (2496) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.
