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.

Tap@The Pilsner Room, portland. Had this pegged as an ESB, so i guess English Pale ale is close enough. caramelly toffee malts, bread. Slightly oily and buttery and resiny to finish. Sweet to start with an off-dry finish, some citrus.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2003 NABA Beer Fest 03: Easy drinking hoppy pale ale, average appearence and aroma.<P> Rerate from Brewery: Musky hop profile, much less impressive than I remember. Metallic watered down flavor that tastes like wet dog.

Tasted in bottle as White Cap. Tasted on tap as Rip Curl. Tap version a little maltier. Medium copper color, medium head. Medium malts and spicy hoppy. Full flavor with a very smooth taste. Good balance of malts and hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and malty sweet

Golden amber. I preferred the regular pale. This is clean and thin. I even preferred the lager.

Doesn’t smell too good (my brother thinks it has the aroma of ass). Doesn’t taste too much better. Not a beer I would recommend or be proud of.

Very light pale ale. Light aromas of fruit and flowers. Almost no head, light orange color. Flavor is lightly bitter, some bread, and more flowers. Smooth but thin. Easy to drink.

Light amber in color. Head is small and disappears fast. Taste is more hoppy and not very complex. Light pale ale that is not bad but not great.
