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 (2886) - 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.

SamGamgee (2452) - 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 (2703) - 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..

kathouse (1875) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - APR 16, 2017
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.

3.6
Lubiere (13780) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2009
A hazy amber red ale with a thin lacing off white head. Aroma of British and American hops, grassy, and fresh grains. In mouth, a good oily malt with c-hops, herbal, pinhey and pleasant. Rich and smooth. On tap at brewpub August 19, 2009.

3.5
bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Draft. Amber beer with a nice off-white head. Light grapfruit aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor Decent bitterness. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and pine lingers. Nice hop flavor.

3.5
DocLock (10653) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Nose is imperial pale-ish, with cloying pale malt, honey, caro syrup, citric hops. Tastes on the sweet side, syrupy, with assertive hops and a bit of heat as it warms.
