classic amber color with a nice head. love the spicy hops well balanced by some rich malty tones. little hot on the palate, but that’s what you’re looking for in the ski lodge, right?

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the can a clean copper color with a very creamy, off-white head. Aroma has a full citrus and spicy hops note with just a touch of toasted malt underneath. Flavor has a hefty spicy hops and some mild citrus notes as well. Middle of the flavor has a smooth toasted malt and finishes with a light caramel malty sweetness. Body has a modest density to it with high, fine carbonation making it a bit sharp but pleasant in your mouth. Overall a very good, every day drinking kind of brew. If the alcohol was a little less, I could see this as an all around perfect summer ballgame/fishing/lawn mowing brew with lots of flavor.

Honey colored pour. Big bubbles form a decent sized head. Lots of citrus and doughy malts. Flavor has a good dose of bitter hops and a juicy malty side to match. Pretty nice beer from Ska.

If you ask me, Muhammad Ali in his prime, was much better than anti-lock brakes.
Yeah, but what about Johnny Mathis versus Diet Pepsi?
Oh, I cannot listen to this again!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is somewhat skunky, but not enough to overpower the hoppiness behind it. The white head is quite foamy, never settling down completely. The brew itself is an attractive amber. The taste is full of spice and hops and is quite entertaining. It is crisp with carbonation, which is not strong enough to override the silkiness. The aftertaste is pure hops and very pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Can] Pours a dark shade of amber with a large, frothy white head. The aroma is very hop forward, with strong and dank earthy hops and pine needles. The taste resinous and sweet. Bitter throughout, but lacking a nice malty balance. Light metal in the finish. Oddly enough, the alcohol is noticeable in here as well. It’s a pretty decent IPA, but definitely not an APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a very dark orange color with a white head. One of the darkest pale ales I have seen. The aroma is fairly heavy on the orange citrus notes with some biscuit malt and some caramel malt. The flavor is orange citrus, bread and toffee. The beer is very well balanced and the bitterness is fairly low. Still, there is a ton of hop flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another very nice canned beer from Colorado.

12oz can - pours amber with bubbly tan head and gentle lacing. Aroma is sweet, hoppy, fruity, scotch tape and a little floral. Medium carbonation. Taste is a little sweet, a little hoppy and a little bitter. Pretty darn good!
