Very impressed to see this creative brew on tap. I have never even heard of if before. It's like a mystery style

A- pours a copper orange body with excellent clarity and a strong off white head of foam. Very brief lacing forms on the edges while strong carbonation is clearly present

S- Belgian yeasty characteristics are present with a butter and peppery presence. Some pine properties are present as well as some musty scents as well.

T- strong Belgian properties blend with strong caramel malt and piney flavor profile. Buttery yeast and sweet caramel malt are coupled with some resinous aspects as well. A sharp flavor profile layered with Belgian attributes is showcased with a hoppy malt background. Creative and interesting simultaneously, perhaps the blonde ale attributes create the drinkability

M- carbonated and creamy, the styles mingle with flavor a cut through with a bitter finish

O- so Belgian Blonde IPA from Chico delivers with the most curious delicious taste profile. I really enjoyed this and would seek it out!
