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.

This is a decent IPA. Not particularly interesting. Drinkable but would not want more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holtguy (162) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Pours slightly hazy burnt sienna. Thin off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is malt, and a little funky. Not necessarily in a good way. Flavor is malty, mildly sweet, slightly soapy, mild bitterness and earthy, pine hop. Somehat dry. Very good, off putting aroma notwithstanding.

Turboninja (476) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium slightly sweet aroma with malts, berries and some toffee. Copper/amber color with small white head and clear liquid. Medium balanced taste with berries, nuts and malts. A hint of bitterness, otherwise very soft and smooth. Wide taste spectrum and medium malty and hoppy aftertaste. Medium/light, round body with light carbonation. Overall, high quality and different, still a bit simple product.

hfmejias (1266) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Draft @ Varsity Pub (Marshall, MN). Poured bright copper in color, clear with a nice off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of citrus fruit, wheat and some malts. Taste is slightly bitter, some citrus notes; balanced with some malts. Easygoing, enjoyable, Not bad.

ebone1988 (1308) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Aroma is malt, pine, tropical fruit, tons of malt. Appearance is amber, off beige head. Taste is tons and tons of malt, some pine, some tropical fruit, but mostly malt. Mouthfeel is creamy medium body, medium carbonation, malty aftertaste. Overall, this is very unimpressive.

Capa (2618) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Copper amber with a white head. A good portion of sweet but not caramel malt balance out a medium hop bitterness. Candied citrus notes entice and bring me back for more. Medium bitter finish. A great pint for a night out. Not over the top hops nor is it a slow drinking malt bomb.

SvanteL (257) - SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2016
Kopparfärgad med medelstor skumkrona som lämnar rester på glaset. Doften är mycket fruktig med tropiska frukter, syrliga bär och lite citrus. Även smaken är rejält fruktig med söta frukter, syrliga bär och en fin efterbeska av röd grapefrukt. Jag skulle snarare vilja kategorisera den här som en red ale i stället för en pale ale, typisk bärighet som en red ska ha. Mycket angenäm och välbalanserad. En klar favorit.

scarletfire65 (1323) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle at home on Christmas Day. Reddish amber pour. Good head. The aroma is malt forward with a whiff of ripe banana. Savory malts, banana, cinnamon, caramel malts, clean dry finish. More of an English Pale Ale. Kind of all over the place and unfocused.

I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deschutes talk up the fact that this is not ’a full on hop assault’, but for me it’s plenty hoppy for a pale ale (but that might say more about the difference between US AND Aussie pales). I’m not getting much of an aroma, but it’s a very clean and balanced american pale ale and well worth checking out.
