Recieved in the Seasons Greetings BIF from Greg (Twiggamortis420). Poured into my DFH Pint.

A - Pours a deep cherry color thats really clear. A nice two and a half finger head develops and slowly falls. The head is light tan in color and really dense.

S - Smells of Pine, and Grapefruit hops. Some florally accents as well and some cinnamon and light clove spice.

T - Taste is of grapefruit and pineapple with more citrus hops backing it. Some banana flavor which is one of the first times that I can point this out. There is also some sweetness at the end of the taste. Perhaps a touch of caramel and toffee from the malts.

M - Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. No lingering taste besides a very slight hop bitterness.

D - A nice pale ale with some good flavors. I liked this beer alot. Thanks Greg!

I am euphoric at the prospect of being able to add another Ska beer to The CANQuest (TM)! It just makes me want to throw my hands in the air and snowboard like I just don't care. CAN you dig it?

From the CAN: "Daffy-Hibernate-Curl-Recycle-Skin Up Fatty-Lutz-Skeleton-Recycle-Ice Fish-Check-Recycle"; "Ska's Winter Offering"; "A Venture/Ska Venture"; "Hand-Crafted In the Mighty San Juans"

On the Crack, I noticed that it was full up to the lip, Fatty! The Glug produced two-plus fingers' worth of rocky light-tan head with good retention. Color was a slightly hazy orangish-amber. Nose was slightly grapefruit citrusy with a caramel-malt overtone. Mouthfeel was medium with a lot of caramel-malt in the mouth and the hops more muted than I might have liked. Oops! BB: 06/01/10. Still, not bad and worth another try if anyone would care to send me some. Finish had some hops to it, but it was still pretty sweet for an APA. Definitely worth another try.

Pours a darker orange with huge, thick white head that laces and sticks around.

Smells of creamy, caramel malt with big pine hop character and some grassy notes.

Tastes of bready/biscuit malt up front and pine/spice hop, earthy, and slightly nutty. Some lingering pine, resinous hop character.

Lighter to medium body with lower carbonation work well.

This is a fantastic almost English-style pale ale that balances biscuit and pine hops character. Easy to drink and satisfying.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass, best before Feb 13. This pours a clear amber color with a large off white head which has a good retention and leaves a foamy lacing. The smells are nice of pine and floral hops a caramel malt underneath. The feel is medium. The taste is pretty good, medium hops (plenty for a pale ale), but plenty of tasty caramel, nice balance and a fine beer.

Ska's Euphoria Pale Ale is a collaboration that is brewed by Ska and Ventur Snowboards and is only being sold in a few stores.

Euphoria is big on fruity hop flavor, but light on bitterness. The flavor and aroma are instead focused on wonderful tropical fruit notes such as pineapple, guava and apricot. The creamy and smooth body leaves a subtle spearmint note on the finish. I love the tropical fruits that these hops are showing and would highly recommend this Pale Ale whether you avoid hoppy beers altogether or are just looking for a Pale Ale that doesn't taste like all the others.
