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.

Not bad. Slight floral aroma, mouthfeel is pretty solid as well. I’m finding it a little too hop forward to fully enjoy the complexities of the multiple malts, but it’s still a good pale ale.

Bottle. Deep copper, red hue, medium off white head, good lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, pepper, rye, a touch of pine, bread and caramel malts. Quite spicy on the palate, with initial bitterness and warming, integrated alcohol. Leads into pine and a sweetish caramel middle and moderately bitter finish.

I had this towards the tail end of the night and had quite a few beers before hand but this was really shockingly delicious. Try it, you will like it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Citrus hop aroma with notes of bready malt and light pine resiny hops. Pours clear copper colored with one finger of off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with bright citrus hop flavors with some pine bitterness in the background. Finishes dry, but smooth with bready malt countering the hop bitterness well. Pretty good.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2017 This is a very smooth beer. I love the hop forward nature of this beer that lends the initial bitterness and refreshing nature of an IPA, but comes in with nice smooth and bready malts to just make this an easy beer to sip with pals or on a night in. Very nice.

Couleur ambrée visuellement propre, mousse onctueuse à la tenue modérée. Nez sur les agrumes que l’on retrouve intensément en bouche, mais de manière vraiment surprenante pour une Pale Ale, d’autant plus que ces notes perdurent longtemps avec un complément de caramel. Bonne rondeur en bouche, amertume modérée. Goût métallique en fin de bouche peu de temps après l’ouverture de la bouteille, mais qui fini par disparaître au bout d’un moment. Ouf. Au final, il s’agit probablement là de l’une des meilleures Pale Ale que j’ai bu à ce jour. Une grosse réussite.

Dark orange colour with thin head. Aroma has a lot of sweet fruity notes. Taste is fruity with a touch of caramel and syrup. Bittersweet.

355ml bottle. Pours copper with a good head. Grapefruit, pine resin, mango, caramel. Good full body. The epitome of a classic APA.

The aroma gives you no idea what is to come, he taste is lovely malty sweet with a lovely bitterness edge to it, syrupy fruity smoothness with a gentle but urgent finish. Goodness me.
