Formerly brewed at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company
Our answer to the calls for a big "west-coast" style double IPA. This beer is a big hop-hearty bruiser packed with flavor. A deep, tarnished-penny color, Chico IPA is brewed using massive amounts of Simcoe and new experimental varieties of hops. The beer has a full body and flavor from the malt, which balances perfectly against the assertive citrus, pine, and spicy herbal notes in the hops. Chico IPA is dry-hopped during fermentation to harness all the thick resinous aromas and flavors of bold, whole cone American hops.
