Pale yellow color, with a thin white head. Hoppy smell and very hoppy flavor. Pretty dry, with light hop bitterness from start to finish. Much more hoppy than I remember from having this when it first came out a few years ago. Very drinkable, could have many of these but the flavor goes stale after a handful. The coolest thing about this beer is that it commemorates Mad River Glen ski area, an old-time resort just down the road from Magic Hat in Waitsfield, VT. Mad River preserves the skiing experience the way it was before corporate America took over the ski industry, and still has the original single chair lift in operation that was installed in 1948 when the mountain opened.

Serving type: on-tap

Im glad they bottled this beer again.
I poured this beer into a glass, it has a golden color body with a small fizzy head. tyey The aroma has a grain smell to it. The taste is kinda dry and has a little malt and hop flavor. The mouthfeel is ok and overall it is ok nothing special.
