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!

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.

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.

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!

Bottled sample from the brewery. Copper colour. Medium head. More malty than some IPAs. Very hoppy. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle scavenged from the Picaroon’s Brewers Bash leftovers, packed with a generic label that matched this ABV and CIPA in marker on the cap, so I assume this is what I drank. Overall, a very grapefruity and West Coast IPA. Wouldn’t mind seeing more of this in Canada.

Bottle (22 oz). Traded by dresden, thanks Steve! Murky orange with a medium diminish white head and good lacing. Aroma of malt/caramel, grapefruit and pine. Taste is also malty with notes of grapefruit and pine. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is piney and slightly dry. Medium body. A tad too malty for my liking but still a good IPA.
