Bold lemon and orange nose. Light body, sightly opaque, but gold to orange color. Flavors of fresh lemon, orange and toast. Medium, dry finish, very zesty. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 12, 2013
Sampled at the brewery. Very fruity nose, guava, citrusy, very pleasant nose, soft bready malts, firm bitterness, a bit to resinous to be easy drinking. Very tasty overall. bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2017
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours coppery gold with a white head. In mild light it looks copper. Aroma of fruit, pine, earth. Med + body. Flavor is malty, so this is not quite dry, but there’s a lot of floral/citrus/resin hop to hold the malt down. Not really dank, but it might not be all that far from it. Seems a bit juicy. Gets more fruit with time. Not harsh, just very hoppy and very bitter. Really good. SamGamgee (2585) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy amber-brown with a sticky head. Lots of hops in the aroma with mainly pine and grapefruit. Sweet as well. The flavor has pine and bitter grapefruit juice with a malty and somewhat sweet body giving way to a spicy finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Plenty of malt, but still mainly leaning on juicy and resinous hop flavors and bitterness. Properly bitter without being harsh. A very pleasant beer to drink. iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Hazy sun tea orange with a well retained light beige head. Resiny citrus and herbal hops dominate the earthy sweet caramel backbone. Flavor has a lot of sweet orange citrus hops that blend well with the caramel, and I actually do taste a little tea as well. Dry finish with bitterness @ a 6-7 at the back corners of my tongue. Smooth full body with the alcohol masked very well. I thought this was pretty good, and more akin to DIPAs back home (not West Coast), as I understand the brewer was from Flossmoor--makes sense..

Light red with a healthy foam. Very resinous with pine and white citrus. Very dry. fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Pours a beautiful hazy golden orange, very hoppy, not a lot of malts, little caramel. 0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Tap @ brewery. Dark, honey-colored body topped with a big head leaving lots of lace, looks great. Medium-full body with foamy carbonation for a nice finish. Almost no aroma, honey and hops--hard to smell. Sugary malts on flavor with light hops, mostly pine. Could definitely use the dry-hopping and the flavorful zip of the rockslide, then this would be awesome. It’s got body and looks, but the flavor//aroma just aren’t strong enough.

Draft at the brewpub. Aroma has caramel, orange candy, grapefruit, citrus and malt. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, malt, orange candy and a bitter finish. Nice.
