3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample. Pale amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of faint citric and floral hops and rich pale and caramel malts. Malt forward in the mouth, but with enough dryness and hop to provide balance. Soft mouthfeel with mild bitterness. Kind of average overall.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark amber color with a 1/2" white head that settles quickly to a film. Nice aroma of a combination of primarily of citrus with some pine notes. Great balance of malt and hops, can’t taste a flaw here. Finish is sweet with some hops in the background. Great beer! Would love to get this one again!

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hard to find a good example of IPA in the Northwest, but this is one, even with the label "Pale Ale". Strong lemon aroma at opening. Thick head that lingers a while. Nice orange tint from the malt. Strong hop flavor, that doesn't linger. I prefer an easygoing pale ale, but I'd recommend this to any hop head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a bit of and orange hue. One finger off white, almost tan head that leaves a lot of sticky lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine, wheat, white bread. Taste is an excellent balance of earthy hop, malt and grain. Getting pine, bready malt, wheat, cereal grains, caramel and grapefruit. Nothing overbearing, just several different tastes all working together in harmony. Crisp and refreshing. Dry, average length finish of caramel, bready malts and earthy hops. Medium bodied, slick texture, a little higher than average carbonation. An excellent APA here. Like an amber ale, an IPA, and a pale ale all in one. Very well done!

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The Red Chair is an insanely great APA! The beer pours a bright copper color with an ample off-white head. The head leaves a beautiful, sticky lacing around the glass. The nose is well-balanced, with plenty of bold and spicy hops, but also a fair amount of malt. I smelled some subtle hints of bread, yeast, grass, hay, caramel, wheat and toffee. The flavors are extremely well-balanced, also. There’s a ton of fruity and spicy hops up front, and the bready and sweet malts take over toward the finish. The beer finishes balanced, hoppy, bitter, sweet, bready and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a hazy auburn color with a foamy off-white head with sticky lacing. Aroma is light and smooth. Lemon-lime on top of caramel, bready malt. As advertised, the malt is the main player in the taste. Butterscotch, caramel and a little graininess blankets the tongue with a nice lemon-lime hop bitterness at the end. Medium-full mouthfeel with a little astringent burn.
