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.

22oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear amber color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of pine, floral hops, and some citrus. Tastes of pine, toastiness, the same floral hoppiness, and some caramel in the background. Body on the thinner and weaker side.

Bottle An extra from Brandon Cheers Buddy. Pours a good clear amber with a generous off white head. The head is foamy and lasting. Produces nice lacing. Has a wonderful aroma of spruce, lemons, and lightly spiced. Has good carbonation and a nice mouthfeel. The flavor is excellent. Well balanced but still has a good hoppy base to it. Has a good crispness. Has a oily texture. A good solid finish, with a great lasting aftertaste. I like IPA’s and this is a good one.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
6.4% ABV. Pours a copper-amber with a large head that recedes slowly. Aroma is par for the style; Nice and hoppy, with sweet flora in the background. Flavor is of big hops; Bitter grapefruit. A sweet malty backbone as well. More floral flavors too in the middle and end. Mouthfeel is a little watery and could’ve used a little more carbonation in my opinion. Nothing extraordinary about this IPA, but it’s smooth and drinkable. Overall, good.

Brilliant amber with a viscous tan head. Nice hopped aromas of pine and flowers. Smooth medium body. Well balanced flavor starts with pine hop bitterness then sweet caramel maltiness. Good IPA.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Nice and creamy mouthfeel. Ends on a dry almost chalky note. Pours a reddish orange with a thin, white wisp of head. The smell on this one is faint, but there. A nice light, but aromatic nose.

lb4lb (2574) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours orange to gold with a short lived offwhite head. Smell is ...where did the smell go? Maybe a touch of hops but it is very faint. Taste is somewhat bitter, hoppy and slightly watery and clean with some pine. Medium body and carbonation. Solid IPA with a bit of a blandness about it, yet it is refreshing and not overly malty which I really dislike in IPAs.

raphael (1045) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2009
[my bottle lists 6.4% abv] subdued aroma mix of piny hops,caramel, vanilla, dry grass. feels a a little flat in the mouth— maybe all the carbonation went to the generous creamy head (bottle).Hops more definite in the tasting, some fullness but a blunt edge, not yet ripe apricot, lemonade.

hapjydeuce (983) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Sampled on tap at OBriens. Clear golden color with an initial one-finger white head. Instant spicy hops aroma of Cascade with some orange peel and lemon sweetness underneath. Flavor complements both the hops bitterness and malt base sides equally. Nicely balanced tones between floral hop flowers, light ginger and apricot, with grapefruit citrus. Bitterness fades rather quickly, but hangs around enough to make for a refreshingly crisp finish. Would like to try it out of the bottle.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bomber. Good citrus aroma along with some bread notes on the nose. Amber/copper body with off white head and good amount of lacing. Medium bodied brew with good citrus flavor, sweet malt and chewy texture. Sticky citrus on the palate. Good refreshing beer.
