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.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Draft at brewpub. Pours amber orange with a slight haze and nice retentive white head. Huge citrus and floral hop nose. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Pale malts with moderate attenuation accent the aggressive grapefruit bitterness. Finish is dry and piney with a hint of toastiness. An excellent West Coast IPA.

On tap. Pours a murky amber with little head. Has an initial grapefruit and passion fruit taste that mellows and lingers. A nice hop aftertaste but not overly bitter. Overall, I really liked this beer.

Tap at the brewery. Hazy brass color with a clingy white head that lasts. Bouquet of fresh hops...very Earthy. Taste is a fresh hop elixir. There is malt there but you don’t notice it much. Very fragrant and flavorful. Yum.

(Sample provided by Todd at the brewpub). This wasn’t 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.

Tasted on tap at the Northern California Brewers Fest 2008. This IPA pours a medium yellow gold color from the tap. Large sized white foamy head. The aroma is herbal, and floral, with some hints of garlic. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrus, some of that summit hop flavor as well. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Tap @ brewery. Honeyed body topped with an offwhite head, little lace. Medium body with foamy carb, lightly dry finish. Big aroma of pine and citrus with honey. Flavor of honey, sugar, grapefruit and pine. Very nice IPA.

Pours golden amber with a fine bubbled eggshell head. Nice full nose of tropical fruit and caramel. Same in the flavor. Dry clean finish and a bit creamy on the palate.
