COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If being in one of the coldest places in the US isn't extreme enough, the contents of this beer may very well redefine your commitment to the pursuit of hops. Rockslide IPA is brewed in the 'West Coast' style with aggressive amounts of American hops such as Amarillo, Centennial and Summit hops. You are greeted with a full frontal assault of citrus/grapefruit/pine hop character, followed up with malt to balance the mouthfeel. This beer is all about hops. 65 IBU

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Tap @ Hops and Pies Denver during FiftyFifty tap takeover. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a cream colored head. Grapefruity, zesty ctirus/tropical fruity, a bit mango, somewhat citrus hoppy aroma. Fairly potent, piney, moderately bitter hoppy flavor with some grapefruit and toasty malts. Easy to drink but nothing super special.

Draft at Fizzís CDA 2011. Hazed orange with a beige head. Lots of pine and citrus a little cat pissy. Bitter fresh piney goodness. Basically hop juice but not overly bitter. 7/3/8/3/15

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at Fifty fifty. Pours hazy deep golden orange, thin white head, lacing is average to slightly above average. Nose is juicy hops, nice and sptritzy, the way I like. Big grapefruit and navel orange, with light spruce. Flavours are very openly bitter, but itís a pithy grapefruit rind-like bitterness, which rocks. More spruce/pine in the mouth than there was on the nose. MUCH more, actually. Solid grapefruit from beginning to end, with a bitter finish. Overall a really solid IPA, but the mouth is a bit too simple to be really world class.

italianjohn (2232) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Hazy deep golden pour reddish tint off white head light sticky lacing ... aroma of chewy caramel malts, and a burst of citrusy grapefruit rindy hops lightly piney as well .... taste is all west coast chewy caramel malts, sugary and bitter citrusy piney hop flavors .... can definitely feel the ibu bite on the tongue but you still feel the citrusy rindy and piney hops .... finish does have a slight amount of abv in it ... delicious reminds me of moylans hopsickle

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - JUN 14, 2012
Pine and citrus hops over a sweet malt backbone. Dry, harsh mouth. Very hop forward but a sweet finish. Mighty fine.

Sampled at the brew house. A very quality made brew with a good hop palate but not overly powerful. The base of the brew was really well done

Draft at Fifty Fifty. Clear amber pour, with a white head. Caramel, sweet malts, piney hops, light tropical fruit, and citrus. Nice amount of hops, but still quite sweet, which I donít like too much.

(Sample provided by Todd at the brewpub). This wasnít on tap, but he brought a glass out from the brewery. Pours a hazy orange-copper color with soapy off-white head. Aroma is a nice mix of resinous and tropical (mango) hops. Taste is sweet, bready malts with light citrusy hops. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Really tasty.
