In this beer blog, we are going to get into the seasonal for Deschutes Brewery. The beer is called Red Chair NWPA (Northwest Pale Ale). If you read my earlier beer blog on their beers, you know the rich history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into beer.
This seasonal pale ale has a clear copper color with a white head on the beer. The smell is vague piney to earthly to the beer. The taste is a carbonation earthly with a dry piney aftertaste that linger. It is drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Witness the subtle aromatic seduction of the original Northwest Pale Ale. Another slap at brewing convention. Another kick in the pants. Enjoy.
Here is a description from their website (www.deschutesbrewery.com):
The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew. Like its namesake ski lift, it’s an insider’s ride to fresh thrills.
Malt: Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Pilsner, Carastan Hops: Cascade, Centennial
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, this was a pretty enjoyable beer. The problem I have with this beer is the bottle says pale ale and the website is saying this is India Pale Ale. I will be honest this does taste like an IPA but more like an English style India Pale Ale. If this is a Pale Ale, which I do not believe it is, this is better than their Mirror Pond Pale Ale. I really love this beer. I will add it to my line up until the season ends. I recommend you trying this beer if you are a pale ale to india pale ale fan. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
