COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This seasonal beer is brewed in the Do It Yourself (DIY) spirit along with our friends from Bayfield at the Venture Snowboard Factory. An India Pale Ale, the Euphoria is crafted with piles and piles of Golding hops to provide a unique spicy finish. Great for after hitting the slopes.

Anarchic enlightenment: (1) Brewed in strict accordance to D.I.Y. methodology, the beer of choice for epic powder days. (2) brewed and bottled by ska brewing company, durango colorado using the finest hops, yeast, malted barley and san juan waters.

From can into Lagunitas jar glass. Porous head, tinge of yellow, pretty sticky. Deep bronze-copper. Aroma is pretty sturdily hopped, but has that malt backbone. Maybe a touch of inflatables. Then flavor is surprisingly malty with some caramel and toffee character. As it warms, more of the alcohol notes come through in the nose. Kind of like an Ameicanized Brit beer--has the malt/hop blend of a bitter or ESB, but itís amped up quite a bit.

Like Modus but a little better. Scientific huh? itís says I donít have enough written to post. OK. Perfect carbonation allows quaffing and has an incredibly smooth finish. Tart without being obnoxious.

Can. A really nice take to the beach or pool where no glass is allowed. It lacks the citrus aromas but I guess that's the kent Golding hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good balance of malt and hops in both the aroma and flavor. Pours a clear orangy yellow with a thin white head. The sharp pine/grapefruit hops come out more pronounced in the flavor but are balanced by a lightly sweet caramel and biscuit maltiness. Finishes with a lasting spicy, bitter bite and candied sweetness. Nice pale thatís a cross between a regular pale and an IPA.

Coppery and clear, one finger head that didnít last but left nice sheets of thin lacing with each sip. A little smoky and woodsy smelling, lots of earthy hops, a good malty base. Ever so slightly musty, which I felt was a touch offputting. The taste was plenty malty with an almost IPA like level of pungent, bitter hops. Quite bitter and almost dry with hoppiness. The earthy smell definitely follows in the taste. Body could perhaps use just a touch more carbonation, but itís adequate. Medium and just a touch slick on the finish with a bitter finale. Itís an interesting choice. More like an IPA and less like the typical pale ale. Certainly try this one if you like hoppy pale ales.

I was excited to see another canned offering in my area. This did not disappoint. Good strong hoppy brew with a strong malt body. My only complaint was that it seemed a little to thick and alcoholic. I have expected to look it up and see it as 10+ abv and not 6. Didnít do a great job hiding the alcohol, but if you drink it slower you wonít notice so much. Not a great session beer, but above average nonetheless.

Pours a nice orangish-brown. No head, really. Aromas of pine, citrus and apricot. A little sweetness from the malt too. Nice mellow hop profile upfront. Slight bitterness with a smooth malty flavor. Mouthfeel is sticky and a little oily but not too bad. Overall pretty decent. Especially from a can.

Amber, clear, good head and good carbonation. A nice balance of earthy malt with enough pine hops taste so you know itís there. The palate/feel is a little thin - a nice change from all these imperial styles that are popular this winter.
