Dense two finger head with an orange creamsicle coloration, retention is excellent and the lacing forms extended streaks. The liquid is a gauzy copper color, noticeably dark, the miniscule bubbles seem to wander aimlessly. Very malty nose with cocoa, caramel to butterscotch notes before candied orange peel, pine sap, concentrated pineapple, mango to guava fruit scents, you can almost feel it gluing itself to your nostrils. Full-bodied, here the carbonation able to struggle and shave off some of the excess flesh. As in the nose no real herbaceous element, more unprocessed rye and dried grasses. The orange marmalade base blossoms into pink grapefruit and even a touch of lime. Grippy peach, apricot, guava to pineapple fruit, this provides whatever bite it has. Caramel, milk chocolate and toffee adhere it all together. Finishes with tar, charcoal and black tea leaf accents. If you don’t mind the sheer heaviness of it, there’s ample flavor and good follow-through with just enough bitter tackiness to remind you it’s an IPA.

This is certianly an ipa. Smelled like an ipa, tasted like an ipa. If you like ipa you might like this but if you want any subtle undertones of anything look else where. Tasted the same from start to finish.

Pours a slightly hazy copper/reddish color. Moderate head with persistent lacing.
Smell is an excellent blend of sweet tropical fruit and citrus.
Taste starts off sweet malt followed by hint of citrus and a fair amount of pine.
Smoothly blended flavors, very good.

Draught into the curvy 3-Sheeps Willybecher-type pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy, golden, copper tone. Thin head, good lacing.
The richness of the aromas is what struck me with my first pour. Herbs, malts, juicy fruits... close your eyes. It's a dream.
Taste is more pine-resin, malts, caramel, some citrus in the background. Robust, well-rounded, true IPA bitterness.
My 3rd pint... 3 sheets to the wind...
Time for me to wind up:
3 Sheeps Waterslides 2018 IPA is a masterpiece from 3 Sheeps Brewery in Eastern Wisconsin.

Clear light copper/gold pour with a small white head. Big earthy and piney aroma. Taste has a strong bitterness with pine, citrus and resin flavors standing out initially. Also has a decent amount of bread and caramel malt flavors. Finishes with a long lingering hop flavor.

Good tasting IPA. The hoppy smell and anticipation led to an underwhelming taste overall. Columbus, cascade and zythos hops is a fairly rare combination. At the higher ABV, would like something more memorable. Bottled from Total in MKE.
