Amber color, looks like SNPA or Icky, darker than your average pale ale. Some trippy Illuminati artwork on the bottle. Mild caramel and cascade aroma.

Tastes like a tamer draught version of SNPA too. Leaves me wanting a little more. This pretty much just tastes like a minor variation to their ipa.

Bottle poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours deep copper amber with a frothy tan head that settles to a firm layer and leaves plenty of lacing.

S: Fruity, citrus, bready malt, and caramel sweetness.

T: Citrus, fruity, maybe even some faint tropical notes and a little pine, bready, and plenty of caramel malt sweetness.

M: A bit towards the heavier end of medium body but not super heavy, moderate carbonation.

O: I have no idea how old my bottle is but I'm guessing not super fresh. There's still enough there to say that this one is decent, though unspectacular. A little too dark and malty for my taste, but not abysmal or undrinkable.

Beer is remarkably similar to the icky ipa. Pretty much just slapped another label on it and called it something else for a ski company, with just a slight tweak to the recipe. Darker colored beer, really doesn't fit the pale ale description, comes in dark orange, crimson and light brown amalgamation. Doesn't really offer much in the way of hopping, much like Icky. Cascade, nothing too exotic. Malt forward, like Icky, lacking a dry hop presence, like Icky.

Taste, good, appreciate the woodiness of the malt angle, mild Cascade hopping. Some of the sweetness and pine bark feel of Icky as well. One thing I noticed about this beer was how quickly the minimal hop character that was there, faded.

Decent stuff, but really geared towards the English pale ale crowd moreso than any discernable hophead.
