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.

Citrusy and caramelly aroma. The taste is very much similar. I dont know how old this bottle was but i had expected more bitterness and hope flavour.

GG (2064) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 13, 2014
12oz bottle and on tap 10 East - Aroma - sweet peachy aroma, caramel and citrus hanging around, but the peach (maybe mango) is dominant Appearance - clear amber body, generous 3-finger white head, light retention, light lacing Mouthfeel - medium body, medium carbonation, semi-prickly Flavor - caramel malts, piney hop punch, medium sweetness, very well balanced Overall - creeping into IPA territory, I’m betting blind this might fool a few people. Satisfying.

"different than Red chair IPA or in my head...i dunno, but this one seems a little tamer and a little maltier, while still being very good fresh. oh well, this score is for the 12 ouncers i’ve had recently...ever so slightly lower than the 22’s from last year."

From bottle. Pours a copper color with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and floral hops. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, floral. Some hoppy bitterness, but nicely balanced.

AWISLguy (1333) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at Claim Company at Northbrook Court. Reddish orange pour, malty smell. Light fruit. Taste follows, but with a sour fruit (almost Am Strong-ish) component. 13.2

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap from the brewer, this pours a nice amber into the glass, with a super eggshell head that leaves nice lacing. The nose is of caramel, citrus and farmhouse notes. Flavors of caramel, candied orange, stone fruits and nice bitter hopping accompany a light peppering alcohol finish. Medium-bodied and oily on the palate, this is a wonderful brew.

Bottle to pint glass. Best by 5/15. P is super clear amber with decent white head. Aroma is cut grass, citrus, and malt. Taste is the same. Finish is dry and balanced. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shot (154) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours reddish golden with a rocky white head. Aromas of sweet malt, citrus and pine. Flavors are citrus and cut grass. Finishes with lemon peel and pine needles. Clean mouthfeel with a fairly dry finish, but a lingering hop bite. There’s an upfront sweetness that is quickly swamped by a tangy hoppiness. This is really good.
