Popularly called "Chico," West Coast Ale I is a reliable, versatile, and popular neutral foundation for displays of malts and hops. Often used as a house strain, it is highly attenuative and moderately flocculent. And it ferments crisp and clean with light citrus notes under 66° F (19° C). Also try DIPA or British I to highlight hops more, or West Coast II and Scottish Ale for malt displays.
