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.

CampesinoTino (782) - 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 that’s 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.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2010
Bottle. Aroma like an IPA, flavour like a pale or a Cape. Red orange with medium head, light lacing. Full aroma hoppy like an IPA. Flavour is more subdued, full bodied with a hop edge, and much sweet maltiness. Lasting hop finish.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - MAR 30, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium amber with a thick cream colored head that dissipates quickly, but leaves plenty of lacing. Smells sweet with a hint of aged barrel wood, extremely pleasant. Taste is of Northwestern hops; bitter with an ever so slight fruity undertone. Good carbonation with a smooth light body, but has a cloying sweetness that put me off. Would buy again

haggis03a3 (164) - Piedmont, California, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Copper-amber color with a lasting off white head that leaves rings of lacing behind. Aroma is an explosion of hops and a surprising amount of malt. Lots of citrus, pine, and some floral notes. Also nice, complex malt flavors. Ends quite bitter.
