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.

Deep copper with a staunch head. Metallic and lightly bittered. Decent American amber-type beer, better option than their amber.

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.

JK (6296) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2005
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.

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 15, 2004
On tap in Ashland, OR. An interesting copper/red/amber color with nice light brown head. Hops and malts dominate the aroma as well as the flavor. Very good balance wtih no bad tastes of any kind. Smooth on the palate. A very nice pale ale.

A very easy to drink beer andI liked the ligthness that Full Sail brings to this beer. I can have many and not be over full. I like the dark beers but in judgiung a beer this was a good beer. Full Sail is becoming a great brewery.

[email protected] 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.

beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 23, 2002
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

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours a medium amber color. Aromas of caramel malts, a touch of fruit, and spicy hops. Flavors of crisp hops with a sweet malt taste. Nice finish.

IndianaRed (5039) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 7, 2005
Bottle Pours a deep golden amber with a hefty, dense light tan head. Lots of lasting sticky lacing. Mild fairly sweet malts are on the nose with subtle hops. No real sharp citrus or piney notes. Flavors are a sweet bready malt flavor. Slightlly woody with very little hops again. Very mild bitterness at the end. Feel is very smoth and a littel heavy. Quite soft on the carbonation."quaffable but far from inspiring"
