COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This tasty copper ale was originally called White Cap brewed in honor of our 15th Anniversary. Everyone liked the beer so much; we decided to release it year-round. To avoid any perceived consumer confusion, we changed the name to Rip Curl to celebrate the ripping winds and whitecaps of the Columbia River Gorge," It’s a thirst quenching easy drinking copper ale that has smooth wave of maltiness that crests to a clean fast finish. Brewed with a blend of specialty Caramel and Pale malt and balanced with East Kent Golding, Challenger & Fuggle hops. Rip Curl will also be available on draught in 1/2 & 1/4 bbls.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a thin white head. Fruit and nuts in the nose. Smooth med-light body with moderate carbonation. The taste is lightly toffee-sweet, with nuts and fruit, and maybe vanilla? Nice crisp finish. Nice balance - this would work just fine as a session beer for me.

Pours a clear copper, topped by a couple inches of sudsy tan foam. Good head retention and head retention. MAlty and just a touchj fruity in the nose. Mild toasted malt, milder caramel, and just enough hops for balance. Almost medium body, carbonation on the light side.

bhensonb (11120) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Balanced aroma of malt and hop. Reddish amber color with a decent white head. Starts with malt, which is sort of washed aside by the carbonation, allowing enough hop to somewhat balance the malt. Very nice, seems a bit malty for the style.

Bottle. thanks to friends in Idaho. Pours a dark golden color. Has a hint of apricot, and caramel. Has a little bit of a hoppy taste but not too much.
