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.

daleharshman (882) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 11, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($1.79). Pours a golden amber with one finger of off-white foam. Aroma is a bit weak but consists of some citrusy, grassy, and earthy/dank hops. Flavor also of citrusy hops well balanced with some nice honey sweet maltiness. As promised, this delivers a hop-forward flavor without much bitterness. Nice smooth finish. This is highly drinkable.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2010
Smells strongly of balanced hops. It is very hop smelling, but not too strong, you canít quite tell what kind of hops as it is very nicely citrusy in the beginning but doesnít have the bitterness at the end of the smell. Pours a very hazy orangy amber, nice fine head on pour, great lacing. You get a nice even malt feel in your mouth as the hops flavour builds. There really isnít any hop bittering in this at all, it is a bit peculiar. Very nicely balanced though, very smooth even taste at the end of the palate. The hops fade out very cleanly.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22oz bomber purchased at liquid solutions Appearance: Fairly transparent body that is just a touch too orange to call full blown red. Lush 2 finger crown comprised of fine bubbles. Some retention and lacing. Smell: Very nice subtle yet complex nose. Lots of herbal, minty, floral, and citrus hops creating a nice bouquet. Taste: A bit less complex than the nose. Orange tangerine note that gives way to wet hopped goodness. Mouthfeel: A bit thin for my liking and for the style. Drinkability: Its thin, has a 6.40% abv, and doesnít taste bitter so it gets high marks.

scooterbub (813) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 17, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy bronze-amber with a large, foamy, clingy, beige head that fades a little. Taste is of caramel, hops, malt, pine and citrus. Similar aroma. The body is a little thin and slightly watery. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable, but not great.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2010 Mostly clear orange, thick frothy beige head. Aroma of toffee, floral, fresh herby hops. Taste is mild bitterness, fruit sweetness, some pine on the finish. Medium body, creamy smooth carbonation.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bomber given by thecheeseman, shared at Shenandoah throwdown 2009. Pours a deep copper mostly clear with a thin lasting head. Aroma is light grapefruit, sharp toasty and caramel malts, becomes lsightly mineral and metallic with the hops and crystla malts. Flavor is toast, caramel, toffee, crystal, with hazelnut, mint, grass, pine and grapefruit and citrus hops- leading to a moderate hop bitterness in the end- a bit gritty though.

CampesinoTino (751) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Copper colored in appearance with an inch of milky white head. Aroma is tart fruit and dry hops. Flavor begins with strong herbal hops and orange sweetness followed by caramel, ruby red grapefruit and pine. Mouthfeel is tangy and creamy with medium carbonation. It finishes crisp and dry with a slight citrus aftertaste. Overall flavor is a well-balanced blend of citrus and caramel malt sweetness with an ABV thatís closer to an IPA than an APA.

On tap at Collins. Extremely likeable for a pale, with quite a bit of taste. Pours red gold with a foamy white head. Floral hops in the aroma, earthiness, some brown sugar malts. Deliciously refreshing. Some sugar, some red fruits, a slight citrusy finish.
