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.”

akoeninger (631) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Hazy, gold color. Notable citrus aroma from hops, pine and some malt sweetness. Taste is hop forward with a malt backbone that balances it out some.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2016
Amber color with a moderate beige colored head. Citric peel and light pine scents. Very sweet with a touch of circus peanuts and hints of pale malts. 6/12

commonshawn (1000) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2016
12oz bottle from total wine and spirits. Dark gold with thick white head. Nice fairly simple hop nose. Bitter pine, some citrus resin, then strong bitterness. Sticky and cloying. A pretty typical ipa, but well done. Decent ride.

The Aroma of this beer is great. Subtle, slightly sweet, yet clear there will be a hop quality to this beer. The taste, at first swig, is great, however their is a Carmel quality to the taste I find slightly off putting. Slight copper taste. Pretty good over all and refreshing. Drinkable but not exactly what I am looking for with a IPA.

AnokaBrewer (169) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Golden brown in color. Not a lot of carbonation. Not much aroma for an IPA. Good mix of hops and malt. I get the flavor switching between sweet malt and the bitterness of the hops. It ends with a slight bitter finish.

scarletfire65 (1307) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Quick bottle at home. A basic IPA, showing heavy malts and some tropical fruit notes over a simple hop profile. Dry finish. Not too bad.

portableparty (2273) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours amber copper with a tight frothy off white head that settles to a thin film and lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malts soft spice also soft pine spruce. Taste is stale bitter hops with plenty of sweet caramel malt hops are stale like I said and show some pine spruce notes with a big spice finish. Palate is medium chalky and little dry. Will need to revisit this one.

Troupis (201) - - JUL 16, 2015
An impressive IPA! A really complex palate of hops and fruits and a variety of flavors: starts hoppy strong and finishes fruity hoppy. Looks great too. The aroma smells just a little too much of a stale bar bathroom. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JonnyMadison (87) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Flight at HopCat in Madison. Clear orange/amber. Was very earthy which made the hops more rich in flavor. There wasn’t much of a bite, which is nice. I’m not an IPA person, but this was very fresh -- a sweet citrus -- still with hops flavor, but not overwhelming.

Pours a clear orange gold color with off-white head. Floral notes, citrus, and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice citrus note.
