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.

12 oz bottle from Oregon grocery. Pours rich orange / amber with one finger head. Mild hoppy nose and initial taste. Yummy. Floral / citrus hops in taste; smooth with minimal hop bite. Very tasty.

stantheman (1015) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2015 On tap at Hops in New Westminster. A beautiful ros color, and fruity on the nose. A fruity, zesty and hoppy flavour. An unbelievably great pale ale!

June 17 2015 at Bitter Tasting Room in Vancouver. Still a world class pale ale. 4.0.

Low hop aroma. Malt bill fits well with pale ale hop profile. Hop bitterness is present but plays a minimal role. A good overall beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gorgeous slightly hazy orange copper pour. Plenty of depth with a light off white head. Good lacing. Very hoppy, nwpa, aroma. Grapefruit, citrus, pine. Caramel aromas can still come through. Flavor is disappointing. Falls short for what aroma and appearance set up. Malt flavor was a tad chalky. Hop flavors did not shine anywhere near to how the aroma did. I feel the shortfall is in the yeast. Out of place estery character is throwing me off. ---Rated via iPhone

ryecatcher (1425) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours an orangey-amber color, medium white head that dissipated quickly. Good lacing. Nose is mainly the Cascade with some malt. Mouth is medium-bodied, light maltiness with some bread up front, hints of lemongrass and some cereal, then a long bitterness. Drinkable, and certainly not bad, but not really exciting either.

tonyth1965 (39) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Nice brew! Pours a hazy medium amber, off-white head, lots of lacing. Has a definite hoppy aroma, something I cant say about a lot of beers Ive tried. I usually think people who equate definite flavors of other foods in a beer are just trying to sound snooty, but this beer definitely has a grapefruit taste. A bitter, slightly sweet aftertaste is not at all unpleasant. Ill definitely drink it again, though its hard to find in my little corner of the Midwest.

Bottle pour from a pick your own 6 pack. Slightly underwhelmed with this red IPA - but still a good brew.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12-ounce brown bottle. Pours a dense amber with frothy off-white head. Big hoppy aroma. Full mouthfeel. Hoppy flavor balance with solid maltiness. Lasting bitterness. Nice West Coast IPA, not overly intense.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 Poured from a bottle, hazy deep amber color, surprising for an APA. Good looking head. Aroma of citrus, slight hops, but balanced by malts. Taste is great. Light hops, citrus, but not too thick. Really good Pale Ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
