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.

Not normally a big IPA guy but this was smooth and flavorful. Not overly hoppy like most IPAs.

Andrew196 (1540) - Katy, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle to glass - pours a rich amber with a thin white head. Extra points for lace and perfectly suspended particulate....I mean, evenly distributed and not really settling. Aroma of ripe red grape, plum, pine and sweet malts, inviting. Nice crisp taste, well balanced, floral hops, more fruity malts, berries. Very well made guys.

darbeer75 (632) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Aroma: lots of citrus and floral notes; Appearance: hazy copper pour with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: very lightly hoppy; some complexity but its more in the background than the foreground; Palate: medium body with long, light hop finish; Overall: a nice APA but nothing remarkable.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Pours golden and settles amber with a frothy tan head atop. A neutral aroma, but sweet to the sense. Medium bitterness with a malt taste, rather pleasant. Palate is sharp at first. Overall 15. Decent camping brew.

Poured from bottle with light golden color that settles to amber in the glass. Thick frothy tan head at top with a slightly fruity scent. Taste is smooth and not too bitter, to me tastes of a small amount of caramel. The palate is tender to the lips tongue and mouth. Overall 15. Decent camp fore beer.

valpoaj (737) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle pour - slightly reddish copper hue - modest white head with ample lacing. Aroma is piney hop forward, with citrus hops lingering in the background...plus a pretty decent yeasty malt feel - intriguing. Flavor is more malty than anticipated - the piney hop expectation is definitely present, but the bready malt backbone keeps things in line quite nicely - not the hop bomb I was anticipating by default. Palate is medium bodied - ample carbonation...easy drinking...admittedly a bit high ABV for such purposes, but this one is quite sessionable - solid overall!
