COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is truely a fill-in beer rightfully deserving of it’s place between Help and Franklins Tower. Light cloudy orange color with thick bubbly head. Taste is beatutiful sour grapefruits, peach and sharp piney hops all nicely balanced. If not for more of a hop bite, this would be outstanding.

Aroma is hops, syrupy malt. Flavor is citrusy and piney hops. The malt is nice but falls just short (very close) to a perfect balance with the assertive hops.

egajdzis (6014) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2004
2003 Vintage... Poured a reddish copper color with a small head, and no lacing. Sweet, tart, piney, citrus, hop aroma. Bitter, with a light malt taste, and a rather thin mouthfeel. Not one of the best IIPA’s I have ever had.

GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2004
thin white head on a golden amber body, plenty of fast rising bubbles. Strong, obviously well hopped and plenty of alcohol. dry toasty grains emerge through a dry, fruity hop nose. Dry, pale and fairly pronounced grain profile. good balance in flavor, but very dry. Full, effervescent and really dry, resinous finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Metallic-orange body and soapy white head. Smells like a grapefruit and cheese platter. Hoppy with some distinctive cinnamon spice. A decent IPA. This is a double IPA divided by two.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Earthy hop aroma with some perm solution going on. Light sweetness and pine. Finishes dry. Decent but not my definition of a double IPA.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 5, 2004
22 oz bomber-medium orange appearance with slight white head. light citrus aroma for a IIPA. some fruity notes also. piney/woody flavors followed by some tangy notes in the finish. the flavors were much more up front than the aroma. Not a bad IIPA, but there are much better ones.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Bottle pours a slightly hazy orangish hued golden color, small dishwater like head, with sketchy lacing.   A nice citrusy pine aroma invades the nose, with subtle hints of hops and flora.   Forwardly sweet, slightly piney, again with the subtle hop notes.   Some caramel tones as well.   Slightly resiny at the finish, a wee bit sweet, and slightly malty.   I can completely dig this one!   Slightly medicinal in the aftertaste, but I am willing to bet thats because of the temp and its 7.8% ABV.   Thanks goes out to batkins for the trade!

I really liked this beer. Its not going to blow you away like Dreadnaught, but like all FS beers, its very well made and subtlely complex. Hides the alchohol well, but after a 22 oz bomber, you can tell its over 7%. Lovely hop profile both in the aroma and flavor and malt balances very well.

Draught: translucent orange copper. Piney, grapefruit aroma, with some hop flowers. Flavours have a definite hop presence, but not overly so. Lightly bitter grapefruit rinds and fresh pine cones. But this one leaves me thinking, at what point do you add the second I to an IPA? A tasty beer no less.
