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.

Bottle. A deep brownish copper color with a foamy tan head. Sweet floral citrus hop aroma. Well balanced, bitter finish and dry. Malty and earthy but with a bitter dry hop finish. A good balanced IPA.

This is pretty nice. Flavor is hoppy but just the right amount for how I’m feeling right now. A little bit tinny in the finish. Good stuff.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2009
22oz bottle. This new release in the Bond Street Series has a big citrus aroma that clues you in on what’s to come. The taste follows suit with pure citrus and floral hop flavors. Even with all those hops, it manages to stay very balanced with light caramel malts that keep the beer clean and smooth. Perfect summer session IPA

IndianaRed (2677) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap at "Kahootz" in Meridianl ,ID Nice deep redish copper, with plenty of hops on the noces. More like the woody not so fresh kind but nice and up front. flavor was noce an d fairly full bodied. Not very dry, maybe that is what put down some of the sharp bitterness that was lacking. A middle of the road IPA from one of my favorite Brewers.

Draft. Copper color with a thick beige head. Floral hop aroma. Near full bodied with smooth carbonation. Lots of hop and lots of malt. Floral hop. Finishes balanced and dry. Something towards Inversion IPA.

arondee (590) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Poured a copper/orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma is floral hops and citrus. Taste is floral and a little bitter up-front, then citurs and slightly malty flavors take over. Pretty good IPA.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bomber. Nose is muted mild hops. Pours a bubbling, gold with a bubbly off white head. Flavors are bready, pale malt, Centennial hops. The pilsner malts make it taste a little watery. A little sweet at times too. There is a decently long mild bitter finish. Nice middle of the row IPA.

On tap at Papago. Pours a nice shade of amber with a creamy beige head. Smells and tastes of caramel apples, malt, and grapefruity hops. Hearty, yet approachable and smooth. Could drink a lot of this.

ajm (1066) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Tap at Pap. Aroma of sweet grass and apple. Color is a nice darker red. Cascade hops are all but hidden beneath the soft malt blanket which creates a very sweet NW IPA. Apple skin, caramel, unrefined sugar, fruit. Real smooth.
