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," Itís 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.

A decent overall beer. Has a slight hoppy presence to it, alsoo has a weak malt flavoring. Bought it becuz it was on sale, and I like Full Sail beers, but definitely not their best offering. Has notes of caramel and apricot in the nose, a fairly good flavoring overall. Drinkable, better than any American macro but not as good as other beers available in my area.

On tap at Pilsener Room, Portland. Amber with lasting beige head. Slightly malty bitter. Too cold, but fine, nicely made.

I thought this beer to bet slightly better than average. Not a beer I will choose again, but not horrible.

Caramel and apricot aromas stand out in this beer. Thick white head which slowly dissolves over a copper colored body. Light bodied, easy drinking. Malt dominated, and thus there is less hop presence. Nothing spectacular, but refreshing nonetheless.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear copper color with thin white head. Aroma is biscuity malt, grassy hops, and wet pavement. Tatses of light malty caramel and toasted bread with an earthy accent. Dry and crisp.

pinkzambia (1427) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2006
Bottle: Clear amber color with off-white head. Aromas of wet leather, overly ripe fruit and alcohol. It is Bass-like in tastes - malty, sweet, a wee bit of formaldehyde and sweaty socks (which Bass doesnít have). There is almost a "tinny" metallic aftertaste, some sourness and it leaves the feeling throughout that you accidentally walked through a cloud of your momís hairspray and it left a thin film in the back of your throat. Ok.

This had an average head.Color was amber.aroma was of a biting corn and hops.It tasted a bit sour.Had a familiar taste,which i soon pin pointed to the same as Schitz malt liquor.Although this wasnít quite as strong tasting.I didnít like the schitz,even though it was preferred when I was a teen ager.I stated that the Schiltz malt liquor("the Bull") tasted like Bull pee,and this does too!Only not as strong.

This was a rather uninspired brew. Copper with a weak off-white head. Lackluster aroma of hops and malt. Somewhat sweet but not in any appealing manner. Thin and watery.
