Review: Deschutes Brewery Red Chair IPA

At just 6.4% alcohol, this is a wee babe in the world of Deschutes’ high-alcohol brews, which is good because that means you might be able to have more than one pint before you’re totally lit.

Considerably less bitter than your usual IPA, Red Chair is a deep amber beer with a hug head and a moderate citrus character. Smooth on the finish, this is an easy-drinking brew, falling in the middle ground between a light pilsner style and the bitter world of pale ales. Goes down very easy.

It doesn’t remind in any way whatsoever of a red chair — though the beer is actually named after a Mt. Bachelor chairlift and was originally brewed onsite on the mountain. And come to think of it, this would be a perfect beer for guzzling after a long bunch of runs on the slopes.

B+ / $4.69 per 22-oz. bottle / deschutesbrewery.com
