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.

Can to pint glass (Courtesy of Hopper...THANKS Josh!) Pours a clear copper (Pale ale?), with a slightly off white head, diminishes quickly to some chunky looking lacing. Aroma is nice. Pine and citrus hops, backed with crystal malt. Taste starts out with the same hop notes, fades to some sweet-ish malts with minimal hop bitterness. While not intense, the bitterness does stick around a while however. A bit thin on the mouthfeel, interesting with the way it finishes slightly sweet. A decent brew. Glad I got the chance to try it.

Tap - seems more british in character - medium amber color - semi-dry, biscuity british-y maltiness (marris otter?) - pronounced golding hop spiciness and earthy character - a slight yeasty/doughiness to it, but most dry, with a light mineral character on the back end - decent.

$9.99/6 pack cans. An amber beer with a small head. The aroma is very hoppy and nice it is. It’s piney, very piney and spicy which I would guess comes from the hops. I like smelling this beer. The taste again has that nice piney/spicy hop taste but it’s also kind of rugged in an earthy sort of way with a medium to high bitter ending. This has turned into one of my go to beers now.

Can. Pours a dark amber with a small off white head. The aroma is a floral hop and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet hop and nice dry finish. Easy to drink, a very good American pale ale from SKA.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2010
12oz can from Central Market. Poured a clear, glowing copper colored body with a fizzy, off-white head leaving some good lacing. Aromas of fresh piney hops, biscuity malt and a floral finish. Flavors of Piney/resin hops, caramel malty sweetness, melon and a medium bitter (hops) finish. Medium mouthfeel with active, soft carbonation. This is a great APA in a can!!!

Pours amber/light brown in the glass. Strong spicy hoppy aroma. Quite hoppy on the palate with decent bitterness. Notes of caramel malt play a supporting role for the hops. Drinks more like an IPA than an APA, but still quite good regardless of the title.

edwardbass (503) - Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is of citrus/pine hops. Has a spicy, bitter hop taste that intensifies as the aftertaste approaches. Pretty well carbonated that seems to intensify the spice/tingle from the hops. Tasty IPA. Not the best I’ve had, but very good.

Ska hasn’t wowed me before, this this is quite great. Pours deep amber / bronze with a good sized bubbly head. The aroma has nicely toasted caramel malt, light pleasing sweetness, smooth rounded hops and a really nice balance. Medium lightly rough body with quite a bit of carbonation. The taste is much lie the aroma, but the hops are on the piny and spicy side and it is a bit drier. The finish is clean and has a lingering pleasant hoppiness. A really nicely made pale ale.

On tap at ACBF. Pours golden with relatively quickly dissipating foam. A very flavorful and hoppy beer. Finish bitter with a great mix of hops.

(on draught at Whole Food-Chandler). Pours mahogany with thin off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit and bright. Bitter with some sweetness to balance. Thin bodied with bitter finish. A decent beer that doesn’t live up to the aroma. Still, I would consider having it again.
