COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remember the first time you went left when logic and everyone else told you to go right? When you looked down the road that would safely take you to exactly the same place it always did, and you chose another path? That’s what Really Cool Waterslides is all about: choosing a dream. Looking uncertainty in the eye and whispering menacingly, “Let’s dance.”

Bottle @ Richard’s Tasting. Orange pour with an off-white head. Floral, spicy, and citrusy hop notes. Some bread, toast, and a bit of lemon peel. Mostly orange zest. Flavor is a touch soapy and sweet. Light bitterness of citrus peel and pine. Floral and spicy notes throughout. Lots of biscuit and bread. Lemony finish.

felsenpils (104) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Murky amber color, strong offensive hop oil aroma, astringent taste, sharp bitterness. This is a very poorly made beer. And although I like West Coast IPA´s, I could not drink this. The hop is like a sharp blade on your tongue. No artistry here, just another example of: "if a little bit is good, a lot is better." 3 Sheeps tastes like homebrew gone terribly wrong.

Bottle. The epitome of an everyday, easy-to-drink IPA. Smooth and plenty of hops to go around. I’ll definitely have this again.

Despite the cute little sheep sliding down the waterslide, this is an average IPA. Good and will drink again, but nothing special.

Bottle. Excellent citrus and pine aroma. Very hoppy and nicely balanced with malt. Reminds me a true west coast ipa. Excellent ipa.

12 oz bottle crushed with Jakebra. Finally get to say that again. Very nice citrus hop nose. Very citrus forward, interesting ester profile. Crisp and light. Very nice.

I am obviously a big fan of 3 Sheeps beer, but I’m also an IPA fan - however, I can typically only drink one. But Really Cool Waterslides is somehow an extremely drinkable IPA without losing any flavor or hops. I can’t describe it. It just works perfectly and I can never stop at one.

DRAFT at Bad Apple in Chicago. Tough rating...followed Surly Furious. Wasn't that level of taste and substance, but gave it a good run. Pours a foggy amber / yellow; bright hoppy nose and taste with decent mellowing of malt. Very tasty...will try to get more. ---Rated via iPad

Had from a bottle in Chicago, October 13, 2013. Mainly defined by an awesome hop-forward taste that I haven’t found in many other beers. Sort of overrides the other descriptors, but the beer had a rich amber color and light hop nose - keeps the actual taste a surprise. Lovely beer that I hope to see more often in Chicago.

Loved the citrus aroma. Citrus continues in taste with piney hops. Super balanced.
