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.

Dark copper, hazy body with a thin ivory head. Great hop aroma, very grassy and floral, with a touch of pineapple and bubblegum. Taste is superb. Boldly hoppy with the same floral-grassy notes from the nose, yet very little bitterness. Some pineapple and orange rind with sweet caramel malts, hiding a subtle background of oak and vanilla. Bold and full bodied, yet somewhat mild and not too bitter. Super complex. Definitely will remain one of my favorite Pale Ales ever.

It really is Euphoria in a glass. Walked all over Durango looking for this on tap. Pours the perfect color of a pale ale but with the hoppy interest of an IPA. Pours almost an amber color with a generous head. Perfect balance of hoppy and malty. One of my top 5 beers in the country.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 What makes this pale ale is its hop character--spicy and floral--which is overlaid on a perfect malt foundation.

Can from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a hazy brown beer with orange marmalade and tropical fruity flavours, pine and zesty pineapple on the finish.

Sorry, but this is an outstanding Pale. Great mouthfeel, just the right pucker, extremely "clean" taste. I haven’t been a fan of previous SKA product, but this one is on the right track and then some.

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!

1. Look - A very clear deep amber color ale with a nice white head. 2. Sniff – There is ale has a wonderful aroma that consists of lots of malt and hops giving it a fruity scent with some pine notes as well. 3. Sip – This is very tasty well balanced ale with a piney, bitter, and dry finish. 4. Another Look – The beer looks really good. The head has dissipated but there is a lot of bubbles and good lacing. This beer is very appetizing. 5. Evaluate – Overall, I am a big fan of this winter pale ale/india pale ale. It is a medium to full bodied ale with lots of flavor and a fruity grapefruit finish that never ends. I would definitely recommend this ale to any IPA fan.

22oz bottle $5 from Total Beverage. Nice heavy orange color, transparent, bubbly, and has a foamy head. It has a nice hoppy smell, floral, pine, good. The flavor is a seriously hoppy pale ale. the smell made me think it might taste like an IPA but it is more like a hoppy pale ale. This was a good beer.

I’ve bought 4-5 cases of this and cannot believe I did not rate it. So here I am my last can available. Huge piney hop with citrus aroma. Beautiful copper pour and a big long standing head. Killer lacing. IMO this just the best IPA I have had so far. Beautiful gorgeous awesome brew. At 6.1 ABV this has SO much flavor and texture that some of the big boys (Stone) cannot compete with. In yer face Stone.!This Smokes anything you guys brew.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 This is probably one of my favorate pale ales ive tried yet. Aroma/mouthfeel/taste/bittering are near perfect. Flavor is balanced. Brilliantly clear-copper color with pillowy 2 finger head fitting perfectly into a sam adams glass. Excellent lacing,much body creamyness,smoothness medium carmel notes very balanced with a spicy hoppy smoothness. The mouthfeel is incredibly creamy and smooth. Very flavorfull pale ale.This is a new favorate,i like this more than the ipa for shure. 2012- Floral aroma,seems milder on the aroma/taste but Strong spicey/citrus bittering. A little less likable than last year.
