Every aspect of this IPA is amplified – from the upfront hop aroma and bitterness to the big malt body. Slipknot features a big Northwest hop aroma and robust bitterness balanced with a full malt body. Cascade, Crystal, Brewer’s Gold, and Cluster hops deliver pungent scents of citrus and pine. Extensive dry-hopping enhances this character with flavors to match. Northwest 2 Row Pale, Crystal and Rye malts add a rich spicy malt character. This full bodied IPA pours a rich golden-orange hue that glows like the late winter sun.

KimJohansen (10416) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2010
Cloudy golden with a medium sized off white head. Aroma had tangerine, grapefruits, hops and peach. Flavor was very dry with plenty of hops that gave notes of tangerine, peach, grapefruit, pine and lemons. finished bone dry and very bitter. I liked it for it’s very exotic fruitiness and cause it was dry and bitter. Nice one.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Poured a hazy golden-orange with a large head which dissapated into a lining of white foam. Lacing was nice and lasting. Nose was citrus - especially orange, as well as biscuity honey malt background. Taste was a very nice blend of hop bitterness and caramel sweetness with some piney, grassy and alcohol notes. Finish was crisp and clean and slightly (but pleasantly) bitter. Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation. This was a very refreshing brew for a warm day and one I wish I had more access to.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - JUN 7, 2010
22 Oz. Pours a hazed orange amber color with big solid head. Aroma is very piney hops with hints of resin, grapfruit, bread, and slight toast. Flavor is intensely bitter upfront balanced by light tasting but sturdy malt balance. Finish is crisp yet a stinging bitterness clings to the mouth but besides that the palate of this medium to heavy bodied bear is very good. Overall a very tasty Imperial IPA for a dollar or two cheaper than the next.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6615) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Shipped to me my wife from a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a small orange-white head that produced good lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy pine and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter and tart with moderate notes of pine, grapefruit and lemon and light sour nutty malts and caramel. The finish was long, tangy, tart and hoppy. Fairly full bodied. Nice.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle pours orange-copper with a decent size off-white head with no lacing. Aroma is strangely funky and suprisingly malt driven for being an IIPA. Nose shows peach, grapefruit, light caramel, wood, funky earth, and a slight vegetable note that I cannot put my finger on. Flavor shows the same with the malt leaning more on the bread side than caramel. Overall body is moderate, and finishes with moderate to heavy bitterness. Interesting I guess, but I can’t say that I would actually seek this one out.

NachlamSie (3244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2010
Pint at the restaurant next door to the brewery. This is a copper brew with no real head. The aroma is strangely malty for an IIPA. Notes of apples, wood and vegetables are here. Where are the hops? In the flavor some very mild bitterness becomes apparent. More viscous than usual body and some alcohol strength in the flavor at least allow me to realize the server more than likely brought me the correct beer. This tastes like a South Carolina brewed IIPA.

JaBier (6878) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Sweet malt and grassy hops in the nose. Sweet malt flavor up front with grassy hops and a lasting bitter finish.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2010
Pours amber and is a little hazy. Aroma is very floral with a strong yeasty element to it. Flavour is very smooth to start with a real progression of hop flavour, First a grippingly sour citrus flavour and continues to eveolve into one of the most bitter IPAs I have ever had. And the flavour lingers forever I think I was still tasting it the next day! Very impressive.
