Not only is the beer super easy to chug, I would highly recommend that’s what you use it for. It tastes better rocketing down your throat at 20 mph than it does during a sipping session.
How Much: 3
I bought this as a single, but my local liquor store sells it for $9.99 for a 6-pack. Now, $10 isn’t a bad price for good craft beer, but when I compare this particular beer to others at this price point I can’t think of a convincing reason to buy it. Ska makes a fantastic IPA called Modus Hoperandi, and when I see that sitting next to Euphoria for the same price, it’s a no-brainer.
This is a seasonal beer that shows up in stores in the summer. The first time I had it two years ago, I thought it was great. I was even a repeat-buyer that summer. Last year I had it again and thought for a moment that I had gotten a bad batch. I don’t know if that was the case or if they changed the recipe or if my taste preferences had changed that dramatically, but I could barely get through the 6-pack. This particular beer was ok, but it really didn’t do anything to change the opinion of it that I formed last summer. It wasn’t awful, but it was pretty forgettable.
Euphoria Pale Ale is a seasonal offering and Ska Brewing distributes to 9 states.
