"It isn't so much what's on the table that matters, as what's on the chairs."

--William S. Gilbert

Blazing bonfire orange with a modest infusion of molten copper. No less than half the pint glass is presently filled with a gorgeous crown of ecru colored foam. The head has a firmly creamy, mousse-like texture and is beginning to decorate the glass with extensive sheets of BB-shot lace.

The nose features citrus fruity hops slightly more than a mixture of pale and caramel malts. Thankfully, the nutty earthiness of Munich malt isn't too prominent. The aroma is fresh and clean and hoppy... and I like it just fine.

As Deschutes freely admits, Red Chair is not a hop bomb. I was hoping that it would at least be a hop grenade, but the first few ounces indicate that it's more like a hop M-80. Given the state of Pacific Northwest craft beer these days, it comes across more like an APA than an IPA. No matter, it's still a delicious, drinkable ale.

If you like them balanced, sit your butt down in this comfortable Red Chair and commence drinking. The maltiness is more toasted bready than caramel-like, which suits the beer just fine. The grapefruit zesty, orange zesty, tea-like flavors could be coming from any number of varieties. In the end, 55 IBUs is more than enough to get the job done, unless you're in the mood for some serious tongue abuse.

The mouthfeel is quality all the way. A little more heft *might* have been better, but what has been provided fits the flavor profile exceptionally well. Besides, the beer's size makes it more drinkable... as in 'ease and rapidity of'. The carbonation is pretty much flawless.

Red Chair IPA is yet another example of this brewery's excellence. Sure, Deschutes could have brewed a huge hoppy beast of an IPA. Instead, they decided to dial it back and give us something slightly more subtle and equally as enjoyable. Recommended.

Like many Deschutes beers, the hop profile is rich, complex, and varying- giving a new experience with each sip. But also like Deschutes, the beer's balance may keep it from greatness. A lot of residual sweetness from the barley keeps the beer from favoring the dry, crisp, hop profile. Maltiness run the gammot of bready, graham cracker, caramel, and light toffee. Hops are spicy and range from grapefruit, orange zest, pine, lemongrass, pineapple, herbal teas, and fresh cut grasses. These powerful hops could take much more of the stage if not for the competing malt sweetness and heavier body. Still, the beer isn't completely unattenuated; some hotter alcohols still make their way in and make the hops even spicier and bite-ier than I prefer. Lighter in color than a lot of Double IPA's, the beer has a reserved head stance and retention but did sow legging and some lacing with the sugars and alcohols present. A lot of negatives in this review, but the beer acually fares better than my Debbie-Downer demeaner. Very pleasant and enjoyable- I didn't have a problem with the session. Better attenuation and less alcohol bite could put this beer on the pedistal with Yulesmith and 90 Minute.

Thanks again awinte1!

Reviewed from notes. Picked up at the brewery, so I assume it was fresh.

Pours a moderate light brown color with a white head and some lacing. Not much in the way of retention. The nose brings some very light citrus hops and some bready malt. Doesn't really take things too far in either direction. The taste is the same way with some really faint malt and not much of a hop presence. Pretty plain feel as well. Drinkability is decent enough, but nothing special.

BBD of 08/19/09

Pours an effervescent orange/copper with 2 fingers of fluffy sand colored head. Insane lacing & good head retention

S: Pineyness & breadyness, plus leafy hops

T: Pineyness, light dryness, breadyness grapefruit, & lemons up front. Leafy hops, orange rinds, flinty dryness & a touch of grainyness are all there as this warms. Finishes semi-crisp, dry & with grapefruit

MF: Medium bodied, smooth, somewhat creamy & good balance

Drink darn pretty easy, but starting feeling the ABV & this is beer#1 of the night; not a mind blowing IPA, but I'm always thrilled to try anything Deschutes puts out

A - Poured out a clear, bubbly, orange-amber color with a small, foamy, off-white head. It left sticky patches of lace.

S - It smelled of citrus, roasted malt and some subtle grapefruit notes.

T - It tasted of biscuity malt and citrus. The hops provided a grassy kick.

M - It was sharp and very crisp. A light to medium-bodied beer.

D - This is a very tasty IPA. Another great brew from Deschutes.

Best by August 2009; Sampled May 2009
Served barely chilled into my 25cl tulip glass. A solid pour easily produces a four-finger thick, light tan colored head. The beer is a clear, deep red color that shows a brilliantly clear, deep copper color when held up to the light. The aroma smells quite hoppy with a mix of pine and herbal notes up front followed by a solid citrus / fruit component that becomes the dominant notes. Aromas of peach, tangerine, caramelized grapefruit zest and a touch of kumquat peel. The finish has a biscuit like grain component as well as a mix of herbal hop and malt notes.

Because the beer is on the warm side it has a fuller mouthfeel to it, but this is in competition with a spritzy carbonation. The hop notes provide a biting, but well balanced bitterness in the finish and there is a lingering, herbal (sort of basil, menthol and perhaps a hint of hemp) note that sticks to the tongue and palate. This has a nice hop fruitiness to it (the most prominent flavor component of this beer) that adds notes of tangelo, lots of lychee, sweet kumquat peel, . My second pour of this is a bit cooler which actually mutes much of the bright hop flavors and makes this more herbal leaning in its hoppiness. It was better balanced above 60ºF / 16ºC, now the bitterness is a bit more present as well. This beer is nicely quaffable, light enough to be drinkable, but with just enough heft to carry the ample hops. The malt plays a nicely supporting role with an underlying touch of cracker like malt and a touch of caramel support.

This is a nicely hoppy beer, I have found that it needs to actually be served on the warm side to bring out it full breadth of flavors and it remains surprisingly balanced in to the mid 60ºF / around 18ºC range. This is not one of those over the top hopped IPAs, though it certainly isn't shy with the hop character either.

22 oz. bottle - best by 8/19/09:

Pours copper amber with a thick foamy head. Rings of lacing stick.

The smell is of grapefruit and pine. Quite robust with a nice hoppy aroma!

The taste is of pine, grapefruit, caramelish malty sweetness. Hoppy, but balanced. Slight touch of alcohol noticeable in the finish.

The feel is on the lighter side of medium. Slightly swishy at times.

Another winner from this brewery. Hoppy with a caramelish - even towards toffeeish malty balance. Nice!

Got this brew along with Mirror Mirror in the mail yesterday afternoon, around the same time I was having a meeting with two friends at my house about getting more craft beer into the state of West Virginia with the new law change. So naturally this was the brew that joined us for the meeting. Appears a nice deep red filtered crystal clear hue with a creamy soft khaki tan head forming nicely, lacing was perfect a little eye candy for sure. Aromatics are popping lively citrus and juicy fruit malt sweetness with a touch of pine all American hops going on here no way this is an English IPA. The label talks about how this beer delivers mad hop flavor without much hop bitterness, I will agree packing with fresh citrus peel, pine cone, notes and even some kind bud herbal qualities. Balanced perfectly nothing hits too hard here, could be my session IPA all summer long if available. Gotta love IPA with some finesse, it hits you with all the flavor and doesn't wipe your palate dry with bitterness. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with some hop oils streaking freely across the palate, residual bitterness was comfortable and carbonation was dead on perfecto. Drinkability up there with the most drinkable of the lot, the only other version I can recall off hand that drank as easily as this one, would be Masala Mama IPA from Town Hall. Excellet stuff, I hope there's some left in July when I hopefully get to make it out the the PacNW.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a clear orange with a 1.5 finger head, solid lace. Great label as well, Deschutes always has nice labels.

S: Orange, really some orange soda immediately backed with lemon zest.

T: Light toasted biscuit malt balanced by a floral lemon/orange mix with some pink grapefruit juice. Definite peppermint/menthol in the finish.

M: Good medium body, smooth, very light aftertaste for the style.

D: A nice little IPA here, I like that Deschutes tried to do something different instead of making another West Coast hop bomb, which they already do a great version of - Inversion. I liked it, the low ABV for the style makes it much more sessionable. In the end though, I'd take Inversion as it's considerably cheaper.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden orange color, nice carbonation, nice two finger creamy light tan head, with some nice sticky lacing. The nose is hoppy, with some nice malt notes, citrus, and slight pines. The taste is sweet, hoppy, malty, slightly bitter, with some citrus. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a nice IPA.

Pours a dark amber/orange color with a thick, frothy white head that has very good retention, slowly fading into a lasting that coats the glass with soapy lacing.

Earthy, floral hop aroma with hints of grassy pine, citrus fruit and pale malts. Dank, oily hops with hints of grapefruit and orange peel along with some caramel and biscuit from the malts.

Full bodied with a prominent earthy, bitter hop flavor up front that lingers over the sweeter notes and malt backbone into a dry finish. Lots of grass and dry pine needle flavor that's slightly countered by sweet grapefruit and orange peel. There's a decent malt backbone with hints of caramel and biscuit, providing nice balance without taking away from the hops.

Overall this is nicely balanced and easy to drink but the hop profile is a touch one-dimensional. Other than that it's a pretty favorable, enjoyable beer. I wish they would have kept this in bomber form.

22 oz bottle into my New Belgium balloon tulip glass. Thanks go to my buddy Bubba83 for the hook up with this in a trade.

Pours a clear coppery amber with 2 rigid fingers of foamy off-white head. Rich retention that leaves some great looking thickish rings of sticky lacing back. The aroma is deeply floral and herbal smelling with some lush tropical notes to it but I'm only picking up a moderate amount of malt presence. This also has a surprising amount of warmth that comes out as this warms. Not enough to really distract but it's definitely noticable.

The hops in the taste are herbal and resinous, with a lightly spicy bitterness that stretches the whole way through. The malty backbone of this is coming off as a bit more toasty to me, with the sweetness of the citrus that is present providing the bulk of the balance. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a softer carbonation and overall easygoing feel in the mouth. There is maybe a touch of beef to this but it seems to actually help the overall profile by accentuating the bitterness in the finish.

I'm always up for trying new hoppy treats from Deshcutes and this one was pretty satisfying. This was maybe a bit unbalanced towards the hops but the smooth body on this made for a pretty refreshing quaff. This actually seemed to drink more like an APA. Good stuff that I'll seek out more of in the future.

On tap at the Horsebrass the other day.

The beer pours an amber orange color with very good head retention and lacing. The nose is not what I was expecting from a NW IPA, consisting of some fairly light hoppy bitterness and black pepper. Given the nose on this beer, I expected and got an IPA very much on the dry side, with more hoppy bitterness and pepper. This IPA is on the light side in terms of flavor, and I found it to be almost watery on the palate. Taste is definitely a bit thin, with a light mouthfeel.

The beer menu at the Brass indicated an abv. of 7.9%, which I found hard to believe. Even the 6.4% listed on this site seems pretty high, with the alcohol barely noticeable.

This is a nice enough beer, but given what else is available in the NW, I doubt I'll get it again. Even just limiting myself to beers by Deschutes, I would much rather drink hop henge, hop trip and inversion. Oh well...

Something between Mirror Pond and Inversion, although I like both of those more than this.

Pours a little darker brown than expected, but what foreshadowing. Aroma, a woodsy tinge. Taste, more of the brown flavor again hinted at in the appearance. A mellow ipa, balanced, good malt backbone, a little more than I prefer, but a good "non extreme" IPA.

Mouthfeel is cool, you can feel a little more without the over the top hop blast, drinkability suffers at $6 a 22, you can get a lot better beers for that price.

Had on-tap at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, CA.

Pours a light copper color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of citrus and tropical fruits with a solid pale malt backbone. As it warms the hops become more assertive and small amounts of pine hop aromas waft out.

Tastes similar to how it smells. The pale malts serve as a backbone but take a backseat to the hops. Tropical, citrus, and pine hops come out midway through the sip and carry on until the mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. There's a nice thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. On-tap this is very drinkable, though in the bottle I found the hops a bit toned down.

Overall this is a very good beer. As mentioned above, the bottle version's hops a bit less in charge but it's still very good. The tap version is very well worth a shot.

22 picked up today at the COOP for $5... poured into my shaped SA glass.

2 finger head sticks around for a long time.. nice crusty lace.. and a constant cap... the brew is a clear orange/honey color.

Nose is juicy citrusy hops with a nice smack of caramel... much more balanced than many PNW/CA IPAs....

Flavor continues with a surprisingly balanced profile... still plenty of bitterness... but it melts into a sorta lite caramel/honey malt essence and then seamlessly into the citric hops... finish has a slightly floral profile.... again, this is balanced and very smooth from front to back... the body and carbonation are pretty much spot on for the style... the only real complaint (albeit minor) is the sweeter than average for the style would probably get in the way for me after a second glass... a 22 seems about perfect.. Most of my high marks are going to be based on how balanced this brew is.

I like it quite a bit.. but the $5 pricetag may have me looking elsewhere at times... A very solid beer nonetheless.

Edit: This brew should NOT be in the English IPA category even with the caramel maltiness.... the CCC hoppiness just tears it out of Europe and plants it firmly in American territory.

Had this on tap at Barclay's in Oakland. Poured a reddish amber with a fairly big head that fades quickly but leaves behind some lovely lacing. Smells of spicy hops and a touch of soapy graininess. Tastes super piney and spicy with hops, beefy- almost too spicy! I love me some hops, but this is one huge chewy hop monster on tap. I could use a bit more malt here. Wow, just huge.

Poured into a pint glass. Dark orange with a white head and decent retention.

The nose is malt forward, which surprised me. I was expecting a bouquet of different hop characters in the nose but I find myself reaching for descriptors. It smells more like a pale ale than an IPA. Light grapefruit notes and a hint of pine.

The flavor is well balanced, with orange and grapefruit up front. The malt is caramel with some sugary sweetness. The finish has more citrus, and pine is evident. These characteristics linger. Bitterness is medium throughout.

The beer is light medium bodied with good carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and slightly dry.

I'm surprised this is a Bond Street release. It's a good and sessionable IPA, but just not on par with the other Bond Street offerings.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clear, rich copper color with about3/4 of an inch of slightly off-white head that left an average amount of lacing.

The aroma was rather muted for an IPA and featured mostly floral notes. The flavors were very hop forward with a slight caramel malt undertone. There was some piney hop flavor, but featured mostly floral hop tastes.

The body was fuller and smoother than average for the style. Nicely drinkable, as expected from such a smooth beer. Overall a very nice beer, although not as good as some other releases from the same brewery. Worth seeking out and I'll certainly have it again.

4/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours an appropriately reddish-amber hue, the off-white head nearly spilling out of the glass from a vigorous pour. Retention is great and the head sticks all over the glass as it slowly settles.

Smell: The aroma doesn't explode from the glass like you may expect a West Coast IPA to, but once you get past that it's quite good. Floral, herbal, dank and juicy with a hint of caramel and toast.

Taste & mouthfeel: Wet floral/herbal hoppiness up-front, juicy grapefruit beneath that. Light bodied, crisp and semi-dry, there's a touch of balancing caramel malt flavor that dries up quite a bit in the finish. This is pretty easy on the palate, and while none of the flavors are especially bold, it's very well crafted and enjoyable. A subtler beer from Deschutes, but a good one.

Lightly hazed toasted orange with a sticky mesh of ivory lace.
Orange and lime juice aroma, underpinned by grapefruit, rose petals, and pine tar. Malt is doughy, lightly sweet, and in the background.
A shortbread maltiness materializes first in the mouth. It lingers in statis, and provides a canvas throughout, bundling up a bit doughier by midway. Hops bring their multi-hued fruits, with special nods to oranges, limes, and papayas. This is more tropical and juicier than it is bitter, but some of the latter comes with a tailing grassy and biting florality, with just a smidgen of pine.
Medium-light bodied, consistent CO2. This is built as a binger rather than a bruiser. This finessed approach helps makes a ringer.
Good stuff.

A: Pours a hazy orange color. A two finger white head forms with decent retention. Not much lace is left behind.

T: Tons of juicy and bitter hops. Huge grapefruit and citrus again. that lingers on and on. The balance that was in the nose is all but gone.
M/D: There is medium carbonation. Though this is to much on the thin and watery side for my liking. The bitterness makes this harder to drink than I would like.

A one and done purchase for me. Not one of Deschutes better offerings. Their Inversion IPA is much better IMO, it seems like the brewery agrees since this is recently retired.

Bottle. Pours orange with a small head. Aroma of citrus, hop oils, and grassy hops. Yum! Flavor is similar--hops oils with a citrus finish. The malt backbone is a little weak and the beer is not as balanced as some of the great IPAs. But still, quite an enjoyable beer.

Red Chair exudes a bright floral bouquet courtesy of Cascade and/or Centennial hops. The aroma is immediate and appealing and arrives above a clear, deep copper body sporting a spry head with wayward lace. Bittering is strong - almost too strong - delivering a citric bite that somehow fails to grab me.

This is a fine beer, but I'm not sure where Deschutes is going with it. It's not an imperial and doesn't compete well with the lesser-priced Inversion that I much prefer.
