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.

A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with a light touch of fruit. The flavor is sweet malty again with a light touch of fruit, leading to a bitter end. A boring beer.

bhensonb (10355) - 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.
