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.

Thanks to rustychiles for grabbing me one of these. Pours an extremely clear chestnut color with minimal white frothy head. Aroma is somewhat disappointing - very little in the way of hop or malt aroma. Seems thin based on that area alone. However, thankfully, the taste saves this beer. It has a really nice, bright, spicy hop character to it that makes it nice to drink. Not the best beer, but there are a lot of pale ales out there that are a lot worse. I’d drink this most any day.

Can from Asahiya. Malty nose, with light floral notes, and serious amounts of caramel. Light hazy amber/brown color. Sweet malt and citrusy initial, with moderate bittering in mid and final. Medium-heavy body, nearly sticky. Very tasty stuff. Edging toward IPA characteristics.

spacecube (767) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
355ml can, pours medium golden brown with a white foamy lasting head. Aroma is malty, chewy caramel biscuit, piney hop with subtle fruit flavours. Not too hoppy. Finish is dry and bitter, but balanced. Carbonation is average. Good malty pale ale.

RABinCO (1166) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Can poured into a glass. Surprisingly dark amber pour. Thick cream head. Aroma of sweet malt, a bit of grass, cereal, light citrus. Taste is a balance of bitter and sweet, bit of citrus, cereal, sweet caramel malt really starts to overpower. Not much of an IPA (as the description says) or a pale ale (As the can says), very much a dark mild or bitter. Super malty.
