Beer Review – Deschutes Red Chair NWPA

Deschutes Red Chair NWPA

The Deschutes Brewery of Bend, OR recently released their Red Chair NWPA in South Dakota.  I picked up a six pack from the Brookings Liquor Store for $8.49.  This is a seasonal release normally available January – April.  It is a combination of seven malts and with a medium hop profile.

ABV = 6.2%

IBUs = 60

This beer pours out amber into a pint glass.  There is a nice off white head.  It has a light hoppy aroma and a balanced malty/citrus/slight piney hop taste.  This is a nice session beer, but remember the 6.2% ABV and consume accordingly.  Most pub foods would go nicely with it.  I will certainly grab more of this one!

Grade = A-
