The Richard is an unfiltered West Coast-style Double IPA clocking in at 8.3% ABV and 72 IBUs.

I had this beer in the tasting room on the Pocahoptas release day. I was told by one of the co-owners this beer was a mistake in trying to brew the Pocahoptas. I tried both. The Richard came home in both growlers. This beer has been on tap ever since. The owner told me he was going to HAVE to continue making this although it was not meant to be brewed at all. Thanks Chris for listening to your patrons! I have yet to find this anywhere other than the brewery. If you are in the Ashland, VA area, just north of Richmond, get by and have a pint. Great people behind the "bar" and Chris is normally running around.
I will complete this review with characteristics the next time I get by COTU. It has been a month or more since I was in the area.

Serving type: on-tap
