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.

Bottle. Deep golden body with a fizzy, off-white head. Floral aroma along with toasted grain, grapefruit, sweetbread, dough, caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning velvety in the finish, lively carbonation. Floral taste along with sweet grapefruit juice. Bready malt backbone. Combination worked for me. Easy drinking because the bitterness, though moderate in the finish, doesn’t scrape the tongue for very long.

Pours cloudy orange with a thin off white head with good legs. Nose is faintly dusty, then grapefruit hops, a little floral hops. There is a faintly metallic note. Very well balanced sweet/bitter flavor. A little oily/buttery in the mouthfeel. Pretty good.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2015 On tap at Hops in New Westminster. A beautiful rosé 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

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.

Nice brew! Pours a hazy medium amber, off-white head, lots of lacing. Has a definite hoppy aroma, something I can’t say about a lot of beers I’ve 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. I’ll definitely drink it again, though it’s 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.
