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.

Puurs clear copper with a coarse tan head. Aroma is fruity, citrus, candy grass. Taste is nice smooth malt balanced with citrusy hops. Nice bitter / sweet balance in the finish. A hint of alcohol in the finish but otherwise that 6.2% is well hidden. I havent been drinking APAs much in the past few years because I always reach for the IPA but now I need to rethink that.

Hanuta06 (457) - Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Serving: from tap at Veraci Pizza. Aroma: lightly hoppy with floral overtones. Appearance: small, frothy, off-white, initial head with fully diminishing longevity and fair lacing. Lightly hazy, amber body. Taste: light to moderately bitter initial flavor and slightly citrusy finish with short duration. Palate: light to medium bodied with watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: good. Nice hoppy aroma and taste without excessive bitterness.

Floral, camomile tea, and citrus fruit on the nose. Highly drinkable, a great example of a northwest pale ale.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Strong caramel malt aroma, with some citrus hop. Great citrus/berry and spicy hop flavor; almost cinnamon-like in the finish. The caramel malt flavor is OK; a little weird, better than the aroma. Some bready flavor and bitterness in aftertaste.

sawbuck (669) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Fair aroma of fresh hops, and citrusy notes. Nice orange amber with slightly tan head. Nice balance of hop blend, bitterness up front, some spice and citrus flavor..... finishes with some malt sweetness, and a replay of harsher bitterness....lingers just a little bit too long.
