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, itís an insiderís ride to fresh thrills.

pushkinwow (2218) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
12oz bottle - bonus from a trade but canít for the life of me remember who - but thanks! Somewhat translucent amber with an off white head that settles to a nice film. Floral and slightly citrus hope, grains, semi sweet malt, a rich but mellow bitterness. Moderate carbonation and slightly thin body, smooth, bittersweet, becomes dry, get some caramel on the end and the malts become prominent and then lose ground to hops. A decent beer.

vyvvy (4583) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours clear copper/amber with a soapy off-white head. The aroma has bready caramel, tropical fruity malt and a smooth and well integrated feel to everything. Medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth caramel, toast, mild sweetness, tropical fruits, soft orange and a good amount of complexity. The finish adds some pine and grapefruit. Everything is soft, gentle and flavorful. Great pale ale.

It has a nice amber color with a small head. Aroma of honey and some citrus. Taste has some bitterness but not overpowering. There is roasted fruits and a chewy sweetness. Good finish.

joshpiledean (315) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2012
Pours copper, almost no head. Aroma of caramel, spicy hops. Medium body, carbonation. Unusually malt-forward, especially for a beer that bills itself as a Northwest Pale Ale. The hops are there, and take the finish over, but it is in the complexity of the malt tones that the true heart of this beer resides. Sweet caramel, smooth and full body. Delicious.

topher_78 (28) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
This brew pours a beautiful copper color leaving about a fingers worth of an off white head and nice lacing. The aroma has a very strong citrus hop character(think grapefruit) imparted from the generous amounts of Cascade and Centennial hops used in this brew. When it comes to the taste of this beer, it packs a nice strong citrus like hop presence and has a medium mouth feel from a nice strong malt backbone.
