COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven 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.

Dark amber colour. malty aroma with a hit of hops. Malty flavour with a fair hit of citrous hops at the end and the alcohol well balanced. Smooth on the palate with some bite from the carbonation and a bitter finish.

From bottle. Dark amber color. Aroma is biscuit and caramel malts with a sweet citrus hop note. Taste is caramel, light rye, grapefruit, and slightly sweet tropical citrus. The bitter is paired fairly well with the biscuit and sweet malts. Citrus is quite prevalent in the finish.

Bottle - pours reddish copper with medium thick sustaining head. Nose of hop and malt. Smooth and foamy mouthfeel. Taste of diluted hop with a lot of sweet malt. Sweeter than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2014
B0ttle fr0m the Jewell d0wn the bl0ck: Deep amber b0died with a creamy head, this had a sweet citrus ar0ma, very ripe 0ranges mainly, with a caramel t0pped slice 0f bread. Very s0ft m0uthfeel. The flav0r was mainly sweet citrus fruit 0ver a sl0wly intensifying bitterness that st0pped bef0re I wanted it t0. Still, a very decent APA, well w0rth repeating.

The lack of citrus punch in this big malty (might as well be a hoppy amber...) ale, along with the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer of bitter bitter bitter aspirin really makes this beer shine. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges in order to create a dog food flavored, copper-colored brew claiming to be a pale ale. Like its namesake ski lift, it’s an insider’s ride to bitter malt water. Would not recommend to someone that enjoys beer.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Quite a pine and biscuit driven pale with plenty of bitterness and sweet toffee. Dirty pale which drinks nicely. Solid balance. Decent drop

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with 1/2" ivory head, curtains of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt that grows in the palate, adding biscuit and bitter toffee that continues smoothly through a lingering finish. Satisfying, easy to drink, well-balanced, a real winner.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2014
Poured from a 355ml bottle. One-finger sized, beige head leaving fragile lacing behind. Copper coloured body, slightly cloudy. Aroma is very fresh with apricot, mango, and peach. Balanced taste character of semi-dry tropical fruits and caramel malts followed by a nice bittersweet ending. Soft carbonated. Smooth in the mouth. Fine bodied. Pleasing (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsø 27.02.2014).

Pours beautiful amber hue with 2 finger white head. Citrus on the nose. Very well balanced, nice malt and uber grapefruit bitter finish. Quite enjoyable and look forward to having another.
