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-
