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.

The build of this beer is definitely something to be enjoyed. Nice Copper hazy, with a dense creamy head. Nice amount of carbonation coming up from the middle. Smell is certainly the carastan malt, with some definite sweetness. Opposite of Cigar City’s Tocobaga Red. Mild hop aroma. Very nice mouthfeel, creamy. You can really taste the spicyness of the red malt in this one, which pairs nicely with the hop flavor. Not overly obnoxious, but well hopped. I could drink this all day. Not too forgiving. Enjoyability 4.5/5

Bottle at Brew, Thonglor, Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin white head and clingy lace. The aroma is big zesty citrus hop. The flavour is light bitter with a huge zesty citrus fruit, sherbet. light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.

Rating the Winter 2013 edition. I have had Zombie Dust and this tastes a lot like Zombie Dust, only so much better. Appearance: A ruby grapefruit red. Nice thick head that retains throughout the entire enjoyment of the beer (leaving nice lacing down the glass). Smell: Pine, grapefruit, mango. Very tropical and sweet. Taste: Wow! Very malty and sweet, but very hoppy. Think floral then pine. Amazing balance to this beer. Overall 9.5/10 I have had most of the top rated pale ales and this is by far the best, yes, even better than Zombie.

GG (2323) - 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."
