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, itís an insiderís ride to fresh thrills.

Pours a nice amber gold color. Has some citrusy fruit notes, some floral and bitter hops, and some sweet maltiness. Taste is grassy floral hops, some orange zest, and smoothed out with the Carmel maltiness. Very smooth and balanced beer. Could drink it all night long.

A hazy bright copper pour with a thin beige head. The aroma is pretty sweet with primary notes of peaches and a whole lotta flowery and grassy hops. The flavor hits with notes of caramel, peaches, and the aforementioned gassy/flowery hops, leading to a mildly bitter finish that lingers with some cereal grain taste. The alcohol is very hidden. I would have guessed this to be less than 5%. Superb Pale, but it cannot replace my dear sweet Cinder Cone.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap. Clear orange pour with a thin white head. Caramel malt aroma with grapefruit hops. Just a touch of sweatsock - must be a hop variety that I donít really like. Taste is similar to aroma. Okay.

Somewhere between a Pale ale and an IPA. really nice aroma, i drank from the bottle, so canít comment on porr/appearance much. Tasted great. Went well after dinner, but could definately be a session beer as well..

DalzAle (2036) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Tap. Clear amber orange colored pour, good carbonation and a subtle hoppy aroma. Flavor is light marmalade, cedar hops and very dry on the aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Pours a clear golden copper with moderate cream colored head. Aroma of sweet orange, resiny pine, flowers, caramel, and berries. Rich, lightly toasty caramel malt base with notes of grapefruit, juniper, and floral pungency in the finish; moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Lighter body with supple texture and light carbonation. Pretty tasty in small doses but floral aspect begins to overpower the rest, diminishing drinkability.

Bottle. Pours orange/amber. Thin yet creamy head that leaves some traces of legs. Hoppy, somewhat floral. Tastes more like an IPA with less pine taste.

I remember having this beer last summer and thinking it was delicious. Donít know if they changed something or if my palate has changed, but I was very dissapointed. Great color, nose smelled like pelletized hops, dirt, and wet dog. Tasted ok, good carbonation and balance, but not as citrusy as I remember. Again, very dissapointed.

Amber pour from bottle with a thin creamy head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is citrus, honey and some caramel. Hoppy finish. Clean, balanced and excellent.
