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.

Nope, definitely no puckering on this one. And that’s a good thing -- pucker up to a ski lift chair the wrong time of year and this beer (or any other beer) would be difficult to drink. And that would just be sad.

Pour is a bright copper with a huge white head. Aroma is hard to get past the head but a decent hop lingers. Flavor is sweet malts with a hop bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable. You could probably drink put a few of these away in one sitting.

Sweet. Pretty refreshing after drinking many hoppy brews. Thin head. Good Pale Ale. This does a very good job of hiding the alochol content behind good flavor. Thanks Ruhlman.

13 Mar 2012, bottle. light orange, clear, steady bubbles, foamy head. nose is toasted grain and pine hops, both soft. med body and faintly fizzy. resiny hops kind of mute the dried toast malt. meh.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Deep copper in color. Nose is sweet and fruity. Some breadiness up front along with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Decent grapefruit peel bitterness finishes this brew off.

It poured an orange/amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of some pine, maybe spruce and malts. The flavor was sweet caramel, pines and loads of hops. A very good Northwest Pale Ale.
