12 oz bottle poured into a 3 Sheeps pint
6.2% ABV, no date.

A - Light haze forms over the beautiful golden colored beer. Proteins in the hops help keep the chunky off-white head afloat for quite some time and further encourage sticky gobs of lace to grapple the glass.

S - Really Cool Waterslides has an explosive aroma of hops; not too huge, not faint or underwhelming, just right. The earthy-citrus combination conjures up suggestions of mango, pineapple, and grapefruit rind with notes of lemongrass and white pepper along the finish. This ride isn't all hops though, as it's balanced nicely by a background of biscuit-and-caramel-smelling malt.

T - The twists and turns of Really Cool Waterslides continue with a citrus flavor that abandons the bolder pineapple and mango notes the nose offers for a straight forward grapefruit rind and lemon zest that works out nicely, adding floral qualities also. The malt base continues to balance this hop-forward beer very well!

M - IPAs are meant to be bitter, so when I say Really Cool Waterslides is fairly bitter, it shouldn't scare you off. Starting smooth and almost soft, this beer goes down incredibly well, lingering with a mildly dry, hoppy bitter finish that almost requests another sip.

O - Like a great water slide attraction, this beer is worthy of coming back to time and time again, almost immediately, in fact. It rides a fine line of balance with submissive, sweet malts and forward-flowing hop intricacies for a hoppy-yet-drinkable IPA that doesn't disappoint or overwhelm.

A: Clear copper in color. Forms a moderate sized off-white head that fades to a surface coating. Minimal lacing.

S: Aroma is pretty standard for a flag-ship type IPA: a blend of caramel malts, grapefruit-citrus, and pine.

T: Taste is similar. Caramel malts. Mild sweetness. Pine, grapefruit, citrus rind.

M: Medium bodied. Moderate bitterness. Appropriate carbonation.

O: Tastes like a typical flag-ship IPA. Not necessarily a bad IPA, but certainly not up there with the big boys.

Impulse buy as I was browsing between the tube socks & Rapalas, a brewery I haven't heard of before. 12 oz. bottle that looks like it was designed by a 14 yr. old aspiring graphic designer (& I don't mean that in a bad way).

The pour is orange, lightly carbonated, opaque without any evident stuff floating in it. Smells bitter, soapy, citrusy, touch of triclosan. Not bad, but something odd about it.

Really Cool Waterslides is a great name for, well, anything. I like waterslides! As for the beer coming out of the glass, it's spurned serial killer bitter. Awash in bitterness that slides into aspirin rather than a clean, morally upright bitterness. Masks almost everything else, but I'm going to try to draw something else out: bitter pine, bitter caramel, bitter leafy resin that coats the mouth like George Brett pine tar. Split this up with my wife & honestly, the 6 oz. taster will do me fine.

I love me a bitter IPA, but this beer veers into the territory of bitter rage: it has an edge to it that's not entirely pleasant. Not objectionable, just not quite my thing. Average.
