COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew. Like its namesake ski lift, its an insiders ride to fresh thrills.

gripweed57 (1439) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange pour. Large creamy beige head with noticeable lacing. Rich malty aroma has earthy caramel notes. Flavor has notes of caramel malt and citrus hops. A wonderful balance of malt and hops. Sweet and spicy. Peppery hops finish this nicely.

Clear tea-coloured pour with small white smooth head and legs. Smells of maple syrup malt, hop that's grassy and lightly floral (dank flower petals), resin. Taste is moderate bitterness, crisp lightly spicy red malt. Body is slick and bitter. Quite nice - a good deal hoppier than most pale ales, and the maltiness adds a lightly sweet crispness.

HKdIPA (735) - HONG KONG - MAR 24, 2016
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Clear dark orange-amber pour with foamy head. Aroma is sweet red malt with some spicy notes, subtle but definitely present pine hops. Nice. Sort of like a malty Sierra Nevada pale ale smell, and smoother. Taste is similar, pine bitterness, bready malt, some lingering tingly bitterness. Really smooth palate. Not bad at all but wouldn't get again - just not my favorite.

One of the best reds yet. Not to heavy or sweet. Light malt taste with a smooth finish.

davidezdonz (393) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAR 8, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 7th May 2016 and poured into a Moonzen Teku glass. It poured a clear amber copper colour with a two finger off white head that retains pretty well, leaving nice streaky lacing. Aromas are grapefruit, pine, mandarin, apple, brown sugar and hints of pineapple and grassiness. Taste was bready and caramel malt sweetness heavy with bitter grapefruit pith and juicy grapefruit on the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this was pretty good but perhaps a bit too malt heavy for my liking.

IslandHaole (1229) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2016
Medium to dark copper colored with an off white head. Tangerines, sweet floral hops, caramel, bubblegum. Subtle rich malts, has a bitter follow that seems to gain strength after you swallow. Very easy drinking to the point of being dangerous.

OsuStu (238) - - FEB 18, 2016
12 oz bottle. Translucent ruby/burnt red color with a white and creamy thin white head. Aroma is bready malts, cherries, light citrus, grass. Pretty light body for the appearance. Darker caramel malts, a bit of woodiness, dried fruit, and a touch of chestnut. Finish is somewhat sticky with a little bitterness.

fiveacestx (945) - Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle - nice rusty red color, some citrus and earthy hops up front and a biscuit caramel malty taste to balance it out. Medium body. One of the better Deschutes in my opinion.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Sharp, zesty, warming aromatics of grapefruit, brown sugar, orange peel, honey-lemon, ripe pineapples, and even a bit of eucalyptus. Burnt sugar and malts give an ever sweeter impression. Moderately carbonated body of medium viscosity. The taste is medium bitter and medium sweet, almost like a U.S. barneywine light. Substantial and interesting, if not particularly memorable in any given direction.
