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.

A little light for my taste but in all fairness I must rate it well. Great balance of hops and citrus notes. The citrus lingers on my palete. Good experience.

Poured from a 20oz bottle, reddish-orange and opaque. Great balance of hops and malt. Floral and a little nutty. Pretty darn good.

redave (165) - squaw valley, California, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a orange amber color. Very little head, no lace. Some citrus, pine aroma, but not much. First sip, rather balanced and i was questioning it’s IPA status at first. But as further sips continue, the hoppy was build up, thank goodness. But still with some malt rounding out still. This is good, but not as good as the experimental hop henge.

HonkeyBra (3638) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Sampled at GABF. Dark orange pour with an offwhite head. Aroma is sharp citrus rinds, grass, grapefruit. Flavor is pretty good. I liked this one.

ultracake (42) - salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2009
22 oz bottle 5.69 from university market. A pretty standard IPA, good hoppiness, citrus, and floral make it very drinkable. A solid effort, if not entirely inventive.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Pours burnt orange with a slight red tint and a creamy off-white head. Aroma is quite fresh with orange citrus, pine, lemon and grass with french toast sort of malt background. Tastes malty and hoppy at once, neither character winning out; flavors include caramel, toffee, sweet toast, and flavorful hops of citrus, grass and earth. Finishes with caramel, lemon zest, and buttered toast with an aftertaste of toast and grapefruit. Medium bodied and absolutely effortless to drink, this is very smooth and moderately creamy. Everything I liked about Cinder Cone seems magnified and fully realized here, with a bit more hops (flavor and aroma only! little bitterness). I want another one.

craftbeerdesign (2204) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2009
sample from the pitcher at GABF on 9/26/09... pours a clear golden color with a white head... big citrus / pine hop presence on the nose... medium body with a well balanced malt / hop character... more subtle bitter finish... very drinkable IPA.

PorterPounder (5928) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Honolulu, Hawaii - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper pour, fluffy off-white head, good lacing. Strong, solid spruce-like aroma - very resiny. Bold flavor with strong grapefruit citrusy bitterness, some sweet caramel accents and a bit of back end nuttines. Thick, rich, creamy mouthfeel. Good accompaniment to our roadside shrimp scampi lunch - an Hawaiian staple. Deschutes delivers again.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Pours golden amber with an off white head. ARom of wet grains and hops. Flavor of toffee in British sort of way, countered by a moderate leafy bitterness. I might have been tired because this is all I wrote.
