Deschutes Brewery (Bend, OR)
"The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Several select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew. Like its namesake ski lift, it’s an insider’s ride to fresh thrills."
North West Pale Ale
As good as it gets. This is what beer tastes like and looks like (when I close my eyes and imagine).
Sadly it is a seasonal brew and only available January through April.
