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, it’s an insider’s ride to fresh thrills.

Nice and smooth in the mouth. Great aroma. Just too mild a hops taste for me. Too much of that clinging wheat taste comes through.

I bought this at a dive for an El Cheapo price based on the review that I saw on here. And I was not disappointed! The label is deceptively deceiving! This lil’ honey packs a mean punch! It has a spicy, frothy vibe to it. Enjoy this while you’re listening to a band do loud metal like me! You won’t be disappointed! I pinky swear!

Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a finger of white head. Settles in minutes with thin sheets of lacing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, sweet. Flavor is mildly hoppy, slight citrus character, mildly malty, sweet background. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, and smooth texture. A drinkable, smooth, and enjoyable pale ale.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber/copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops with some pale, caramel, and cereal malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pale ale.

Pours a cloudy amber golden/red. Great Aroma, smells of citrus and hops pretty much ike an IPA. The taste is hoppy, with hits of grapefruit, very well rounded, one of those beers you could easily drink all night.

Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2013
A half finger of head on a clear, red/amber colored body. The aroma is wonderful: honey, lemon and pine. The taste is superb. moderate honey sweetness balanced by a bold pine and grapefruit bitterness. The texture is amazing. It’s soft with moderate carbonation. A top pale ale.

On tap. Pours a clear orange/amber color with a two finger off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is piney and floral. Taste is citrus and spicy with some maltiness in the middle and a piney finish.

My second Deschutes experience, and I liked it almost as much as my first-- this has just a taste of the wonderful "banana hop" flavor I caught in their "Inversion " IPA. This one is similarly "mild mannered"-- relatively speaking, for something that has the words "west" and "pale ale," it does not blow your hair back in a Green Flash kind of way. But it has a nice tangy tinge that fades away into a relatively sugary finish. Good beer.
