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.

Shared by KyotoLefty. Happy to give this a try, thanks! A nice clear golden amber color, with a thick foamy head. The hoppy nose has a zesty biscuity malt vibe. The taste is citrusy light pine & caramel. It doesn’t really scream red ale but yeah as an APA I can see it. Pretty good but I was expecting more from Deschutes though I am not sure how old this is...

thorongil2 (1388) - , Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
(tap) clear orange amber colour with a small tan head; wonderful aroma of citrus, stewed fruit, sweet notes; flavour not as great as aroma but still nice - balanced with long medium bitter finish

vadie (800) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Couleur de cuivre avec une grande mousse beige. L’arôme du caramel, malt et ananas. Le goût est très similair mais aussi très fraîche, bien équilibré, et facile à boire. Très bonne!

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2014
filmy white top on a hazy red amber body. Soapy nose, light toast, some caramel. Soapy up front with dank pine, metallic mid palate thin through the full caramel and pine finish, more dankness in the incredibly slick end where a stale oat.

On draft. Cooper color with little head. Hoppy aroma. Tastes of grapefruit and ends bitter. Another solid offering from them.

stxoil (25) - Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a clear copper. Nice hoppy aroma. Great hops taste but not overwhelming and has a strong malty backbone. One of my faves. Pity it’s so hard to find around Houston.

Beerathon (1272) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2014
Copper color with nice frothy head. Rather bland hop profile and a sweet bubblegum like aftertaste that isn’t good. Disappointing.

shadey (1910) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Maybe a standard red-IPA, but the quality is high from Deschutes. Red orange color with solid hops that are flavorful and bright. Caramel malt adds some heft and body and rounds out the flavor. Really nice.

snoworsummer (2438) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly beige head and some lacing. Tastes strong hops, but mild bitterness. Strong orange and sweet grapefruit. Slightly nutty and grassy. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like hops, caramel, nutty, orange.

sonnycheeba (3745) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours mostly clear amber/copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, floral notes, light pear, and faint tropical fruit. Flavor is good balance of bready malts and floral hops with some light caramel and faint fruit esters; dry finish with a touch of bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.
