COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

SPDickerman (1056) - Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Pours copper with a large, fluffy off-white head. Smells of caramel and hints of citrus. Taste is sweet, caramel, creamy, with some touch of citrus. Full-bodied with a smooth, velvety texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Deschutes Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale finishes with a smooth sweetness.

high_on_hops (784) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pours a nice copper color with a small off-white head and some lacing. It has a light citrus aroma. The flavor is very interesting, with alternating hops and malty sweetness, a lingering malt aftertaste, and a smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Timbers, Denver. Pours amber with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma of malt, caramel, peach, citrus, notes of butter. Taste is malt, caramel, peach, citrus, grapefruit. Medium body, soft carbonation, semi bitter finish. Apart from the faint buttery notes in the aroma, a nice brew. 030312

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2012 darker in color than expected. nice dancing sweetness in the hop cahracter that sticks out despite a nice dose of malt. it doesn’t get much better. i quit smoking and this beer makes it worth it. now i get some sweet orange peel.aroma is a beautiful tapestry of notes, citrus malt, pine. up there for best pale in my eyes...

Not the in your face pale ale you'd expect from the northwest. A: Moderate hop with a caramel malt backbone C: Copper with some haze and a nice head. T: Moderate hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness O: Not an overpowering hop bomb. A little sweet on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cbirker (42) - Fullerton, California, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Very strong malt presence with a hint of citrusy hops. Def not a west coast pale ale if thats what you are looking for. Very smooth and would be a good beer for someone who is just getting into the craft scene.

dnbthompson (37) - Bend, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with cream head. Formally this was considered an IPA but now a NWPA. Another great Deschutes seasonal that has become a staple in Central Oregon and beyond!

Bottle pours copper with a thin tan head. Pine aroma with huge fresh hop cone notes. Flavor is nicely balanced toasted malts, some nuts, ending with good earthen hops. Nice!
