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.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2012 darker in color than expected. nice dancing sweetness in the hop cahracter that sticks out despite a nice dose of malt. it doesn’t get much better. i quit smoking and this beer makes it worth it. now i get some sweet orange peel.aroma is a beautiful tapestry of notes, citrus malt, pine. up there for best pale in my eyes...

Not the in your face pale ale you'd expect from the northwest. A: Moderate hop with a caramel malt backbone C: Copper with some haze and a nice head. T: Moderate hop bitterness with caramel malt sweetness O: Not an overpowering hop bomb. A little sweet on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very strong malt presence with a hint of citrusy hops. Def not a west coast pale ale if thats what you are looking for. Very smooth and would be a good beer for someone who is just getting into the craft scene.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with cream head. Formally this was considered an IPA but now a NWPA. Another great Deschutes seasonal that has become a staple in Central Oregon and beyond!

Bottle pours copper with a thin tan head. Pine aroma with huge fresh hop cone notes. Flavor is nicely balanced toasted malts, some nuts, ending with good earthen hops. Nice!

Best by June 5, 2012 bottle. Pours a clear, medium amber with moderate head. Excellent lacing. Wonderful aroma of pine, citrus, floral. Love the bitter bite this beer has in the taste and finish. Despite this, the malt presence is evident as well - really enjoy this beer! You can easily discern this is a top-notch offering from a great brewery - Prost!

jgb9348 (4946) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Crisp deep ruby-tinted amber coloured body with a copper glow and a two centimetre tall off-white microfoam head. Aroma of cardboard, sugar, soap, earth and some very light hops. Light-bodied; Soapy and astringent characteristic at first with some malt and cardboard coming through, some light citrus hops and a little more funk in the mix. Aftertaste shows a earthy, soapy and off-malt taste with not much hops and a sad finish - nothing interesting at all. Overall, not such a great beer - showing too much cardboard and definitely not enough hops for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Village Market in San Francisco (Ferry Building) on 15-January-2012 for US$1.84 sampled on the other coast here at home in Washington on 24-February-2012 a few days before returning to Portland and then a few further days before heading back to San Francisco!

A clear red beer with a small white head and nice lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine with a nice dose of malt. The flavor is fruity citrus and floral, very tasty with good body. Well balanced and highly enjoyable.
