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.

Pours a clean off amber/copper color with a lively, slightly off cream colored head that holds together at first but falls away. Full malt aroma (caramel with a hint of coffee) with spruce scented hops hiding in the background. A nice medium malt flavor is slowly joined by a medium bitterness that is never overpowering. A full body is carried out to long finish by a soft, but persistent carbonation. It manages to balance the hops and the malt quite deftly. A really nice beer.

A solid pale ale. Aroma has a decent amount of hops for the style. Some citrus. Flavor has dry grain, with an herbal hop quality. Lightly bitter, and a medium sweet malt finish. It is very drinkable. Light gold color, and more about the hops than the malt which is fine for apa.

Pours a clear red with thin white head. Aroma and flavor are both quite hoppy although well balanced.

Wow, absolutely perfect. Aroma is pine trees and forest. Appearance is nice copper color. Taste is perfectly balanced with malt and jsut enough hops to approach an IPA. Palate is medium and ends hoppy. Overall a pure delight!

Iíll take an APA over an IPA every time. This brew from Deschutes is a perfect example of why.

A solid, solid Pale Ale. Has some nice floral slightly sweet notes, finishing with a nice amount of hops, and ends rather cleanly.

Poured a deep amber with an eggshell white head. Definitely pulled back on the hops and more defined malt.

Dark copper. Thin, almost non-existent head. Mild lacing. The aromatics are my favorite part of this. Fresh, hoppy, citrusy. Heavy on the carbonation, there is almost a delay before the clean citrus flavors wash over the palate. Once they do, absolutely delicious. I like this considerably more than Mirror Pond.
