Gear Guide season: Three words that make every Skiing Mag editor want to curl up and die. The Gear Guide comes with a menagerie of spreadsheets, data-entry programs, and an assload of shipping and receiving—office pastimes we try to actively avoid. We're a coddled bunch and real, desk-based work makes us incontinent. There is but one remedy for ails caused by ski-test cards, glove reviews, and Excel equations: Good…F@&king…Beer.
Enter Park City, Utah-based Wasatch Brewing Company and its Ghostrider White IPA. Fruity in both smell and flavor, Ghostrider has delicious hints of peach, passion fruit, and pineapple. Its hops are present but not overpowering. And at 6 percent ABV, Ghostrider will coax you into a nice buzz with a crisp, refreshing, and drinkable flavor. It’s perfect for a hot day behind the BBQ—or the computer. Utah’s craft brewers are making some incredibly delicious and creative libations. Ghostrider can certainly be considered one of them.
