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.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Really nice grapefruit hop nose, some pine, and a bit of tropical fruit. Hints of melon and lemon zest. Biscuit malt base. There’s a nice fruit character to the flavor, too. Big grapefruit, tropical fruit, and some peaches. Melon, lemon zest, and pine. Moderate bitterness, some hints of malt sweetness.

bhensonb (12960) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2009
Tap at Sacramento Brewing Co. Pours a copper/amber with a rather frothy beige head that laces. Pine aroma. Maybe some citrus. Medium body with almost creamy carbonation. Flavor is pine and/or grapefruit rind, and the malt is hardly noticeable at first. This is a good bitter beer, that shows a bit of florality and maltiness as the main bitter drains away. The florality comes forth with time. Bottom line: it’s bitter. Really good.

Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, pine and grapefruit with a smooth dry bitter lingering pine finish.

adnielsen (10199) - 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.

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 8, 2009
On tap at Sacramento Brewing. This copper ale poured with a modest off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a nice toffee flavor with just the right amount of hopping to produce a balanced taste.

BMan1113VR (7912) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 17, 2011
On tap at Blue Palms during their Eclipse Release Night. Pours with a mostly clear golden hued body with a small white head that doesn’t last very long (low carbonation it appears). Aromas of lots of sticky resin, grapefruit, Centennial and some tropical fruit. A bit of earthy and pine hop notes and some sticky caramel. Flavors are nice and fresh with hope notes of citrus, tangerine and grapefruit. Mild malt and light caramel. Medium bitterness. Lower carbonation than I would like. Dry. Tasty and fresh!

slowrunner77 (7873) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
"a soft body and a good amounts of fragrant grapefruit/citrus hops in this one, with enough of a malt backbone for decent balance. the finish wasn’t quite up to par for whatever reason but the flavor and aroma were quite good."
