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.

Bottle.Poured an orange amber color with a smaller white head. Beer left bunch of lacing on the side of the glass as it went. Aroma was spruce, pine and malts. Flavor was sweet caramel, pines and hops. Well balanced with a malty backbone. Some subtle hop bitters in the finish. Outstanding beer.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a small glass mug... The beer was a clear copper color with a thick cream colored head that stuck around. It smells of sweet caramel malt, fresh peaches and citrus. The taste consists of grassy hops, a lot of sweet malt and a spicy/ lemony aftertaste. The beer is light and coats the tongue until the soft, prickly carbonation washes over leaving the mouth dry. This beer has some great flavor and itís not your typical pale ale, I could see myself getting this again.

Pours a copper color with a slight orange tint. Aroma is slightly floral with a hint of citrus. Taste is slightly bitter, with a mild sweetness of caramel. The aftertaste leaves you with a refreshing hint of citrus. This beer lives up to its billing as a smoother pale ale.

Pours a clear copper with large bubbled head that laces well. Hops are piney and well rounded. Slick resinous mouthfeel and very bitter. Lots of pine flavor. Very good beer.

Fantastic style. I was a fan of Mirror Pond and I love IPAs. So the 2 styles have come together to form a really great beer. The color is pale red gold. The aroma is fresh hops, malty goodness. The taste is like an irish red- pale ale that was dry hopped. The palate is treated to hops and malt but a nice happy medium, leaning to the side of a few hops. Overall great beer. It isnt an IPA hop monster and it isnt a normal Pale ale, but I recommend this one to anyone, especially if you like some hops.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2011 Slightly sweet caramel tones with pitchy hops in the background. Clear amber colored with thin white head. Slight lemon/grapefruit hop flavor starts with semi-sweet caramel malt background. Moderated bitterness. Medium light bodied with good carbonation. Slightly harsh piney bitterness.
