OK…Washington state beer review #2 of the evening is Red Chair IPA from the Deschutes Brewery. If you didn’t catch my last review, my friend Kerry went to Seattle a few months ago, brought me back some beers, and we’re finally getting a chance to review them together.
The beer poured with a healthy amount of head. Sean was a big fan of the ampleness (another made-up word for those of you keeping score).
For the Aroma, we all agree – Tons of hops. Kerry and I definitely detect grapefruit. No hiding the fact that this is an IPA.
Kerry and I were pleasantly surprised that the taste isn’t as hoppy and grapefruity as the smell would indicate.
Sean doesn’t have much to say, as he’s still thinking about those two 30 foot birdie putts he hit today (prick bastard).
