Notes/Commercial Description:
3 Floyds has a reputation as the Midwestern kings of alpha (hops), and it seems that one of our beers helped to lure them down the lupulin-paved path. Chico King is a mash-up of our mutual passion for hoppy pale ales and combines a uniquely robust malt body with intense citrusy and fruity new school hop varietals.

3 Floyds marches to the beat of their own (double kick) drum when it comes to collaboration, often partnering with comic book artists, tattoo parlors or heavy metal bands when inspiration strikes. These eclectic beers are coveted throughout the Midwest and some beers, like the legendary Dark Lord Imperial Stout, have spawned something akin to a beer-themed holiday in the brewery’s hometown of Muenster, IN.

Richer (and darker) than a typical pale ale, lovely velvety yet surprisingly heavy mouthfeel, and pours with a foamy head that resembles soft~beaten egg whites (in a good way). I'm neither a pale ale nor hop-lover, but this is a nice departure from typical APAs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Light brown with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Very generic malt/hops
T: Also generic malt/hops, adding a bit of herbs
M: Light-medium-bodied, a touch bitter
O: Given the quality of pale ales both SN and FFF make this is a big disappointment. An okay beer but very unremarkable. Not nearly as good as any of the year-round let alone special pale ales either brewery makes

11/23...BCAA 7/12....pours medium copper/amber with fluffy white foam, small layer. Light hoppy pale nose. Taste is a mellow malt with a spiky hop push. Long finish. Notes of pine, trees, oils, peppermint. Classic pale with a twist.
