3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium amber with a thick cream colored head that dissipates quickly, but leaves plenty of lacing. Smells sweet with a hint of aged barrel wood, extremely pleasant. Taste is of Northwestern hops; bitter with an ever so slight fruity undertone. Good carbonation with a smooth light body, but has a cloying sweetness that put me off.
Would buy again

Amber poor with and off-white head. Nose is caramel, pine, and hops Flavor is caramel with some nice hops. Medium bodied and balanced with nice solid malty body. Not bad.

Copper-amber color with a lasting off white head that leaves rings of lacing behind. Aroma is an explosion of hops and a surprising amount of malt. Lots of citrus, pine, and some floral notes. Also nice, complex malt flavors. Ends quite bitter.

Iíve gotta say that the commercial description is the most accurate one Iíve ever read. Seriously. Iím not sure if I should rate this as an IPA without the bite, or a Pale with tons of hops. Itís really, really good. My go-to beer this time of the year is usually Deschutesí Cindercone Red, but if they start putting this out yearly, I think I may have a new go-to for the spring!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Crystal clear amber orange pour with a moderate, sudsy off-white head. Left some light, spidery lacing on my glass. Has a nice aroma on it: caramel, bread, grapefruit, pine, and lemon. The flavor is more mellow than the nose. I really like the complex, bready, just sweet enough maltiness this presents up front. Finishes with floral notes, light citrus, pine and a little lingering bitterness. Moderately light body, fairly spritzy. This is quite a solid little pale ale.

Sweetish aroma of strawberry and grapefruit rind. Soft, cereal malt flavor quickly complemented by more fruity hops flavors - strawberry again. Slightly burled malty flavors, low yeast contribution, full but sedate finishing bitterness. Pretty interesting set of flavors, here.

22oz Red Chair IPA bomber from Specs in Houston--Best by 08/19/09---Thanks :o( Pours a deep amber body with a bumpy off-white head that is sticky and leaves some lacing. Aroma of very light piney hops, light sweetness and some caramel. Flavor of medium malty sweet (caramel), lightly hopped and slightly grassy. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Clean, very short mild bitter finish. Very easy drinker. I agree with the re-badging from IPA to APA. Although I thought I had found an "IPA" that my wife liked.
