Chico King, a Pale Ale (Three Floyds Brewing Company)

The beers of Three Floyds Brewing Company aren't available in our hometown (New York City) so we were excited to get the chance to taste something from this legendary brewery. The fact that they were collaborating with Sierra Nevada on a Pale Ale named after Sierra Nevada's hometown only got us more excited. Unfortunately, Chico King is a bit underwhelming. The beer is bready and malt forward without the hops we were looking forward to most in this 12 pack. It's well-brewed and drinkable (and will be just-right for some palates), but it's not the revelation we were hoping for.
