Our handmade Estate Ale highlights the flavors of home. From the sun-drenched fields of California’s North Valley comes our Estate Ale. It’s rich with the flavors of the valley—hops with earthy, grapefruit-like flavors and layered spicy aromas, and barley with mild sweetness and smooth, toasted flavors. Enjoy this remarkable homegrown ale, made with organic wet hops and barley grown at our brewery in Chico, and one of the few estate-made ales produced anywhere in the world. Together, these crops grow alongside the brewery to make a truly unique brew.

TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Orange brown amber beer with off-white rocky head. This dang stuff smells like paw-paws with a hint of citrusy hops. Flavor is very good, roasty malt, herbal hop bitterness, and paw paw. It tastes more like paw paw than paw paw beer does. Mouth feel is moderate. Overall, a nice beer.

Citrus and tangerine with good malt backbone. Easy to drink and well balanced, unpretentious IPA. Bottle.

Homer321 (4318) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle. 2016 vintage. Nose is very grassy and light pine and spruce. Very clear medium copper with large white head, rocky, great lacing. Taste is initially bitter followed by a moderate creamy caramel but never cloying or sweet. Light pepper. Overall, the grassiness seems to dominate most of the flavor profile in a way that detracts from the classic citrus IPA profile. Decent.

Voodoo (574) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours a deep, clear copper with a medium white head which lingers a bit......aroma is caramel, malt, pine notes.....taste is some pine, touch of earthiness, very present and chewy pale malt taste, tailing off into an earthy bitterness. A different tasting IPA but well done and nicely balanced.
