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.

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.

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.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2010
(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.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2010
clear amber, average off-white head. Funky, old food smell. medium lacing on the glass. Bitter flavor with a danky sweetness that just ruins it at beer -drinking temperatures. Drink this out of the can. It’s specially formulated that way. Throat closing mouthfeel. heavy, foody, finish that’s kinda gross.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2010
12oz can. Orange-brown color with a thick off-white head. Earthy, chewy toffee, caramel hop aroma. A rather malt forward APA, has some nice resiny hop tones but basically gets washed away in thick, clean, malt thickness. Excellent mouthfeel, smooth and rich, quite drinkable. Doesn’t really scream APA, but I like it.

This need pours a deep golden amber with a medium off white head that leaves some good pacing down the sides. The aromas are citrus and pine. The mouthfeel is sticky, dry and bitter. This isn’t what is call a pale ale, but its really good nonetheless. Cheers!

12oz can pours amber in color with a large off-white fluffy head. Aroma is a well balanced citrus, pine, floral, and caramel. Taste is similar to aroma, rather earthy, well balanced all the way around with a nice bitter slightly spicy finish. A very nice well balanced Pale Ale, nothing really unique that makes this stand out but very well done and drinkable.
