The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew. Like its namesake ski lift, it’s an insider’s ride to fresh thrills.

22 0z Bottle. Pours a medium amber. Aroma of hops with a little woody scent. medium body with citrus /pine hop taste. No real bittering a little hard to place.

Ronritter (652) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2017
12oz bottle reddish pour with off white head aroma and taste is citrus and light hops

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2017 This is a very smooth beer. I love the hop forward nature of this beer that lends the initial bitterness and refreshing nature of an IPA, but comes in with nice smooth and bready malts to just make this an easy beer to sip with pals or on a night in. Very nice.

Couleur ambrée visuellement propre, mousse onctueuse à la tenue modérée. Nez sur les agrumes que l’on retrouve intensément en bouche, mais de manière vraiment surprenante pour une Pale Ale, d’autant plus que ces notes perdurent longtemps avec un complément de caramel. Bonne rondeur en bouche, amertume modérée. Goût métallique en fin de bouche peu de temps après l’ouverture de la bouteille, mais qui fini par disparaître au bout d’un moment. Ouf. Au final, il s’agit probablement là de l’une des meilleures Pale Ale que j’ai bu à ce jour. Une grosse réussite.

Dark orange colour with thin head. Aroma has a lot of sweet fruity notes. Taste is fruity with a touch of caramel and syrup. Bittersweet.

355ml bottle. Pours copper with a good head. Grapefruit, pine resin, mango, caramel. Good full body. The epitome of a classic APA.

The aroma gives you no idea what is to come, he taste is lovely malty sweet with a lovely bitterness edge to it, syrupy fruity smoothness with a gentle but urgent finish. Goodness me.

Berries, pine. Not the most modern hops, but they still work well. Like the malts who make it more original. Nice brew. (33cl bottle at Carolines in Berkeley)

Christos (5692) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2017
(Deschutes Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.2% Dark orage to red colour on the body, clear, small and thin white head on top. Aroma of caramel, red fruits, marmalade. Taste has red fruits, orange peel, sugars, marmalade. Medium body. Good.

LesArgen (356) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2017
Probably my favourite Deschutes beer, a massive pale ale with bread, maple syrup, peach and grapefruit aromas. There are loads of lemon, grapefruit and pine aromas plus toast with a nicely rounded palate and that alcohol and grapefruit persisting in the back of the throat long after you’ve swallowed.
