COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
n the 1960s, before Vail Village was paved and closed to vehicles, "hookiebobbing" referred to those committed fools who, while on skis, grabbed onto the bumper of passing cars to tow them up to the lifts. Our IPA is a Colorado approach to the American take of an English classic. Three aggressive yet floral American hops and one hop from Down Under team together to make a bright, citrusy and floral India Pale Ale. A deep caramel malt helps to balance the bitterness of the hops and lets the complex hop bill shine.
Hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Centennial and Galaxy.

Pours amber color with white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Hoppy flavor but taste a little watered down. Good beer but I was hoping for more bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (2543) - Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was recently released in Michigan. Pours fairly crystal clear deep gold color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, lime, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, lime, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, lime, apricot, tangerine, grapefruit, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity of citrus/pine hops with moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and some slightly cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops with moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Orange-tan with a slight bit of haze, not a lot of head or lacing, but it doesnít look bad at all, just a bit lacking on foam. Aroma is that of an IPA with a solid malt backbone. Caramel malts and earthy tones compliment a floral, citrusy hops body. Carbonation is somewhat light (probably affecting the appearance too), but more than ample. Overall the beer has a finish that spans both malty and resinous hops bitterness. Enjoyable. So far, I havenít had any beers from crazy mountain that I didnít like.

bookman10 (632) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Pours a cloudy, light golden-yellow, with lots of head (when I opened the bottle, foam started oozing out). Strong aroma of hops. Flavor is very bitter, with lots of hops and just a touch of something else underlying it--canít quite put my finger on it. Almost Brett-like underflavor. Finish is quite bitter as well. Interesting IPA, not quite up to par for me.

kaser (2612) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle from my friend Brady. Pours cloudy orange with bubbly and small head. Smell is orange citrus and bitter. Very good smell. Bitter, malty, yet floral, taste all comes together very well and is a very smooth and easy drinking beer

Pours a light copper color with almost no head and minimal carbonation. Aroma is faint and flora;l. Taste is great, hoppyness that is not over the top but good to drink. Back taste is nice and bitter. Mouthfeel is good. Not a bad beer.
