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.

12 oz bottle, pours a nice orange with an off white head. Aroma of citrus! pine and some malt. Taste wise, this is pretty well balanced, subdued hop flavor and some lightly toasted malts. Medium bodied, creamy, the the carbonation seems a bit soft for an IPA. Overall, IMHO, this is a very tasty brew. It goes on the "Have another" list!

Slightly hoppy with an taste of berry and possibly cabbage... It’s a very surprising taste for how the beer looks slightly cloudy but with a nice red orange hue

Darker amber pour with an inch of offwhite head. Strong juicy citrus hop aroma, lemon and grapefruit. Really soft carbonation, velvety mouthfeel, slightly dry finish. Taste is lighter than the aroma and simple - bitter pine and biscuity malt. Average APA with better aroma than taste.

williamstome (1229) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Orange pour, small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, and sweet maltiness. Great hoppy flavor of citrus, pine, grass, and maybe a touch of that galaxy dankness. Full round mouthfeel.
