Our newly "tweaked" Chico recipe is receiving heaps of praise from the hopheads. A bit more malt, a bit more alcohol and even more of that signature West Coast citric grapefruit hop character we all love!

[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a deep dark orange with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is bready malt first along with some hops, fruit, light vegetal notes, alcohol and something a bit odd or different that I can’t place. Flavour is fruity and bready along with some alcohol and long moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Too much like an English IPA for me but still a fine beer overall.

Growler from brewery. Copper colour with a nice foamy head. Lots of citrus and grapefruit on the nose. Some pine too. Flavour is very similar. Lots of citrus hops and grapefruit. Solid.

Pours auburn amber with a fast head. Aroma is hoppy with a caramel malt base but there is something almost ketchup chip like hidden amongst the grapefruit citrus notes. Medium bodied, mildly hoppy, grapefruit with a decent length but lacks a bit of punch.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear amber with average foamy head and good lacing. Smells of sweet grapefruit, pine and citrus. Creamy palate. Taste is balanced malt and hops. Pine, grapefruit hops. The finish is bitter sweet, in a good way. Very nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille. Merci François-Guillaume. Couleur bronze. Arôme de caramel, houblon et fruits. En bouche, du houblon fruité, de la résine, du caramel et une amertume qui s’étend. Bonne IPA.

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
On tap @ the brewpub. Bright orange body, lacy off white head. Sweet pine and grapefruit aroma. Ripe melon, grapefruit, light pine, long bitterness. Nice-- sweet, but more in a juicy way than a sticky way.

2L bottle. An okay craft IPA. Not huge on hops, but well balanced and citrusy. Alright.

Ferris (12890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Draft - Sweet orange and grapefruit, with a rich sweet ale malt backbone. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Sweet lemon drop candy, grapefruit and a decent bitterness. A bit sweet, but nice.

(Thanks to dresden for this one) Une robe orangée un peu sale. Une mousse qui ne tient pas vraiment la route. Au nez, des houblons très fruités sur une base maltée un peu veillotte. De bonnes bouffées de conifères apparaissent après une ou deux gorgées. En bouche, les houblons sont plutôt aromatiques. Les céréales maltées prennent une place importante. Je soupçonne le temps comme élément perturbateur. Au palais, le liquide exhibe un corps plutôt crémeux et modérément touché par les bulles. En finale, je découvre une IPA qui pousse quelques notes asséchantes. Du côté de la force maltée. Peu importe, cette bière est facile à boire et ses arômes sont adorables.

Bottle courtesy of Dresden, thanks man! Dark golden pour, two fingers of foamy white head, with plenty of lacing to boot. Aroma, lots of citrus, grapefruit, pine, smells like it’s going to a bitter one. Taste, mild first, and then breaks into a fresh pine/hoppy kick, followed by some sweet maltiness, with a bitter dry finish. Nice IPA!
