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, itís an insiderís ride to fresh thrills.

Lovely cascadey aroma of citrus and pine greets you nicely. Clear reddish gold in color with a quickly disappearing head. Some lacing. Light in body. Lots of citrus and grass in flavor is a bit contrasting with the crystal malt. Itís sort of stuck between an IPA and red, and itís a tough place to be stuck. Itís a nice quaffer from a great brewery, but I like the other offerings a bit more.

asheft (2895) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2016
On tap at Tony Romaís, Mall of America. Fruity and oniony hops aroma with stone fruit and faint strawberry. Almost clear copper under a thin, white cover and lace. Flavour is salty hops with onions, bitter resin, and apricot in front of sweet base malt. Very high bitterness lingers through the finish and is slightly astringent. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth.

Popoff91 (57) - Oregon, USA - APR 5, 2016
12-ounce bottles poured into a large dimpled mug. Tasty, not too bitter, the best pale ale that I have had (although the color was a bit dark for the type).

Really hard to rate, as ths was on Nitro. If I had known that I probably wouldnít have ordered it as it was just dominated by the nitro and I got very little aroma or flavor out of it. Certainly not hoppy. May have to give this a try in the bottle.

gripweed57 (1283) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange pour. Large creamy beige head with noticeable lacing. Rich malty aroma has earthy caramel notes. Flavor has notes of caramel malt and citrus hops. A wonderful balance of malt and hops. Sweet and spicy. Peppery hops finish this nicely.

CacheManyHose (535) - HONG KONG - MAR 24, 2016
Clear tea-coloured pour with small white smooth head and legs. Smells of maple syrup malt, hop that's grassy and lightly floral (dank flower petals), resin. Taste is moderate bitterness, crisp lightly spicy red malt. Body is slick and bitter. Quite nice - a good deal hoppier than most pale ales, and the maltiness adds a lightly sweet crispness.

HKdIPA (614) - HONG KONG - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Clear dark orange-amber pour with foamy head. Aroma is sweet red malt with some spicy notes, subtle but definitely present pine hops. Nice. Sort of like a malty Sierra Nevada pale ale smell, and smoother. Taste is similar, pine bitterness, bready malt, some lingering tingly bitterness. Really smooth palate. Not bad at all but wouldn't get again - just not my favorite.
