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.

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 (5124) - 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.

A dark amber with a thumbs width white head that started to dwindle just as soon as I put the glass down. Great lacing. A delicious aroma; sweet citric heaven. One of the best grapefruit aromas I have come across from any beer, like I just cut open a fresh grapefruit and put it right up to my nose. Sharp, pointy, crisp. Flavor is just as good with the marriage between malt and hops. A floral and fruity fused malt base alongside a wonderful hit of grapefruit. There is a very balanced layer of bitterness throughout. A very crisp, silky mouthfeel aided by the carbonation. Wow, this is a great beer. Extremely balanced, extremely drinkable, extremely good. This quickly made it into the mix of favorite beers.

cblado (289) - Washington, USA - FEB 21, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice golden copper color. Some off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is surprisingly malty, but there are citrus hop notes as well. Flavor is complex, with a strong caramel backbone and great pine and citrus notes throughout. Overall this is a great pale ale, and I hope itís not just a seasonal production, as the box said.

BillKismet (3520) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2012
A bronzed-amber brew with a decent, albeit, thinnish head. This is a great bitter hop brew to complement those rainy Pacific Northwest nights. Sharp, piny and resinous Chinook hoppy nose that is like a sharp hop rain amidst a spicy fog. The body too is resinous and bitter throughout. Pungent and enjoyable. With a balanced finish that is neither dry nor sweet.

only available briefly, but worth the wait every year. hoppy without hitting you over the head, and maltier than most pales.
