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.

Poured amber with and off-white head. Smells of slight pine, grapefruit, citrus, and biscuit. Tastes similar to smell.

This pours a semi-cloudy amber orange color with a slight head. The aroma is mostly hops mixed with a little citrus. The taste is smooth, malty, and complex. Initially there is this bready, toasted, malt taste that then turns into a dry crisp after taste. Full of flavor and very well made!

Foamy dishwater head on top of a clear red pour. Lots of lace. Caramel aroma. Slightly bitter nose. Creamy mouth. Taste is sweet. Some bitterness balances out the end. This is a very easy drinking beer.

Scipio (1221) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Pours a clear red with a thin, off white head. Aroma is a mixture of malts and fruits. Caramel, berries, apple, and pine, with the fruity impressions being slightly stronger. Taste is more fruity as well. The berries stand out more, pineapple, with the caramel tastes still present but more of a backbone overall. Some bready tastes are noticeable as well. Aftertaste is berry and citrus. Medium in body, a chewy texture, with average carbonation. This one is alright, but I don’t find anything particularly exciting to make this stand out.

Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2013
I guess I’d call this an APA or an IPA... or I guess a NWPA if they insist. It is a nice red golden color w/ a scant head that leaves behind chunky rings of lace. This is a hop-foward and drinkable brew w/ a focus on citrus more so than pine. It is a touch on the sweet side but not sticky or heavy at all, the sweetness just adding a compliment to the strong, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. This is a pretty straightforward American ale but a good one.

12 ounce bottle. Red orange appearance, lacing, a finer’s worth of white foam on top. Citrus floral hop aroma, a nice bouquet. Taste is fresh hops, plenty of varieties that I’d like to learn more about, along with a touch of strawberry Thanks, Deschutes, for including the various hops in your beer...it’s a labeling practice I wish every brewer followed. Medium bodied and crisp. Overall this is a nice beer that isn’t too wild and won’t blow out your tastebuds.

Color in the right light is a little red.. up to the light its more of a copper. Good carbonation. Clean hops with a nice bitterness.. decent balance with the malts... Could be less for preference.. but a good IPA.
