Winter sports and endless pizza are just a few of the inspirations that cause Ska brewers to create a crushable pale ale that celebrates the hops of the pacific northwest but also has balance. Herbal and toasty, this little pale ale has it all.

Euphoria pours with a light tawny bronze color and builds a creamy off white lather to draw in the eye. Its toasty aromas are more of a display of citrusy, herbal and perfumy hops. A granola filled early palate hosts malt flavors of caramel, honey, nuttiness, toastiness and grape nuts cereal.

Sweetness gradually drifts away across the middle palate to make way for the hops. Orange peel, grapefruit and a zip of lemon decorates the tastebuds while a softer and more succulent mango flavor rises. Nutty with pecan and toast, the flavors develop a piquant bitterness with grapefruit peels, soft pine resins and a sharp grassy bite hitting late on the palate.

Medium bodied, the beer retains enough malt sweetness to take a decent edge off of the hops. Still, the hops take control of the finish with a drying resin character and a mild leafy peppery bite that lingers into a medium length afterglow. Now where are those pizzas?

Hazy, light-brown color with a soapy off-white head. The aroma has malt and a bit of hop presence. Medium in body and balanced just slightly on the sweet side. Plenty of hops, which give the beer a little astringent, resin-like note. Fully bitter by the mid-taste. . The body has a serious heft. Nice.

Copper and amber appearance, off white head like a hearty esb almost, floral hops, good pale ale vibe going for it. Maybe simcoe?

Taste was good, they dropped all the crystal malt from those heavy ass malt ipas they make, went lighter pale malts here, well carbonated. A well done pale ale.

Best by 2/21/16 on can

L: Reddish/light-brown, hazy, long lasting creamy head
S: Subdued aroma, floral hops, herbal, caramel, bready
T: Restrained bitterness, caramel sweetness, floral, a little onion/spicy
F: Medium body yet fairly dry finish, lots of carbonation on the palate
O: A nice fall/winter pale ale. The moderate aroma and flavor hops with a malty backbone is nice change of pace.
