Description:"Red Chair NWPA is named after the oldest operating lift at Mt. Bachelor here in Central Oregon. And just as the locals line up for that fabled mountain ride, they flock to our Bend brew pub whenever it goes on tap. One thing we've learned, "when the brew pub talks, listen." For the past two decades, the serious beer fanatics down there seldom miss when we've hit on something truly special." — Deschutes Brewery
The tasting: Golden-orange in color, hazy, with a white head that dissipated slowly leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, citrus hops and sweet malt. Flavor of biscuit-like malts and spicy hops. It has a nice caramel malt backbone but leans towards the hoppy side. It is a NORTHWEST pale ale, after all... Light to medium bodied, with an effervescent mouth feel that tickles the back of the mouth. It finishes dry with a lingering mild hop bitterness.
Rating: 3 star. Good. I would drink this again if someone gave it to me. Another solid offerng from the folks in Bend!
