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

Deep gold color... Aroma is minimal piney hops... Flavor is fairly dry throughout, initially a little watery, but palate explodes with pine hop bitterness, spicy hops... Decent, not my favorite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
