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.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a two-finger, khaki-colored head of bubbly foam. It had some nice retention and left some soapy lace.

S - It smelled very floral and piney. Some nice caramel notes, too.

T - Good piney hop bite brings some bitterness. Good sweet caramel flavor with a touch of biscuity malt.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

D - This is a really nice APA. I like the idea of an APA as a winter seasonal.

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.

Acquired this from TheManiacalOne so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!

A: This beer pours a deep hazy copper/burnt orange color with a one finger of white sudsy head on top. Head recedes rapidly leaving nice ringed lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is quite hoppy. Nice piney hop notes with a hint of citrus hops. Some mild grainy and pale malts are also present.

T: Taste starts with a flavorful hops bite. Taste is big piney hops on the forefront. Grain and pale malts fill out the middle balancing out the hops nicely. Finish is major lemon and grapefruit hops. The grapefruit lingers on the finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp body with an extremely dry finish.

D: Very good representation of style, goes down easily, nice bitter presence with a lingering citrus bite on the tongue. This is a very nice beer.
