2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bright copper. Aroma is full of overripe fruit, bubblegum, higher phenols...jeez...Deschutes is usually reliable. Sweet front, again bubblegum alongside some pineapple/mango tropical fruit notes. Fairly bitter but the phenols are really distracting.

Like the rust on the titular "Red Chair" at Mt. Bachelor she pours. I met the fellah that made this beer and he was quite a humble and unassuming gentleman, much like this liquid-enjoyment. Sometimes all a man asks for is a brew he can enjoy passionately, everyday for the rest of those days. The mixture of "not hurting your brain and tastebuds wondering if you actually enjoy it as much as you think you should" and "actually having enough flavour backbone to excite you" is priceless and should be duly rewarded. I feel like I get a Pale, a Red and a bit of Brown all in one offering. It’s ubiquitous and delicious. If I had to choose a craft beer for the people, t’would be she.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a coppery red with a thin white head. Aroma is all mash and grain. I hoped for more happiness and it lacks that. It’s more of a Scottish ale.

As advertised. Copper pour sunset flavor though nice. Malt hop blend perfecto. Nw hops yes pleasant. Citrus combo of several citrus fruits. Longer hoppy. Green lush untouched rapids and moist love come to mind. Cool session experience.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Citrus, piney.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Citrus, piney, spruce, bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter citrusy finish.
O- As someone who does not like APA’s this wasn’t too bad. Still not something I would seek out, but the citrus helped a lot. Not crazy bitter but still just missing something. Good, but not quite great.
