A - Pours a hazy copper-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, and other citrus hops with some pine hops, and sweet caramel malts.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit and other citrus hops and some bitterness. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more bitterness. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit and pine hops and some bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice hoppy pale ale. Good overall balance with a nice hop profile.

Deschutes Red Chair

Appearance: amber, very small head, and some lacing.

Smell: hops, floral fruits, and a slight flower sweetness.

Taste: very nice malts, good hops, and a faint citrus.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

This is a great brew. It is very well balanced with some very pleasing flavors.

this is a great beer! copper in color, clear with nice khaki colored head. smells slighty sweet and hoppy at the same time.

I am a fan of deschutes brewing and was curious how this compared to their "mirror pond" pale ale hoping in a way the Mirror pond would taste better for the fact its easy to find and u can get it year round, but of course this "north west" (not sure what constitutes a "north west" pale ale) is in my opinion better tasting. has more flavors and layers of complexity yet not overly complex by any means.

Taste malty and hoppy at the same time, but more importantly these two traits are balanced VERY nicely. Has a slightly sweet aftertaste but not too much for a pale. initial mild hops followed by delicious sweetness.

If you see this beer and are at all curious about it TRY IT!
