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.

DuffMan (9498) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle, shared wih Parksy. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a brief golden head. Aroma is reedy maltiness and resinous vegetal hops. Flavour is hoppy, but somewhat soapy rather than citric or resinous. Not as smooth as I’d like. The hop character just doesn’t satisfy as much as I’d hoped. Decent, but one was enough.

Beerdrinker79 (2008) - Idaho, USA - MAR 26, 2010
6 oz sample at beer tasting at Enoteca 2010 vintage- Pours brownish golden with little head, aroma is malt and hops, but mostly hops. The flavor has a nice hop character, and is well balanced with plenty of malt, not bad but have had better.

poisoneddwarf (2269) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Full Sail tasting at Enoteca in Post Falls, Idaho. 4 oz sample from bomber poured into shaker. Tangy pot, gym locker aroma. Funky, yet really good, paradoxically. Pours golden with a medium dissipating head and nice lacework. Flavor is tangy, bready, hoppy, grapefruit. Medium-low carbonation. Nicely balanced. I dig the funkiness of it, but other than that, it’s just average.

dwyerpg (5544) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Nice full citrus hop aroma. Looks nice. The flavor of this beer is only okay. It really seems a bit alcoholic in flavor. This beer actually gave me a bit of a headache. Not good.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bomber served in a tulip. Pours clear, amber-orange with a short off-white head. Leaves sparse lacing and has short retention. Aroma has dough and nuts with some orange-lemon citrus. Flavor has malt up front followed by a punch of piney, bitter hops. Lacks sweetness entirely. Medium body, decent carbonation, and bitter finish.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle. For me, at this particular juncture, this is a near-perfect northwest coast beer. Pours deep amber with medium white heat. Big, blustery single-hop herbal/piney smell. Centennial or willamette maybe. Mt. Hood? One of the hops that one is constantly finding in abundance in these wonderful Washington/Oregon pales and ipas. Flavor is mild hop resins and bitterness backed by a nicely composed malt structure. Just enough to make the malt assertive, but to take a backseat to the pungent hops. Not even a trace of the 8.2% abv listed on the label in the taste or aftertaste. Lingering pure, single hop flavor on the palate through the finish. For me, bliss is the intense and sustained experience of the heart and soul of a single hop. This beer does that.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2010
Amber-orange with a dissipating white head that lacks a little in tenacity. Aroma is laden with citrus hops, fruity sweetness and a grainy, biscuity malt. Flavor is hoppy bitter, grassy with an earthy finish. Body is a little soapy and resinous. Not bad but I expect more layered hops in my DIPAs.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours medium amber, thin head, okay lacing. Nose is very dry, with hops tending more towards spice than to pine or citrus. Rather simple, very softly metallic. Flavor is much the same as the nose, straightforward, simple, dry, and mildly metallic. Nothing really wrong, but this somehow misses the point entirely.

ownch411 (21) - USA - FEB 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light orange/gold in color. Thin and short head. Light hops/biscuit in aroma. Bland on the palate but a good finish with lots of flavor. Another IPA.

yespr (40140) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2010
From tap at the Bistro, Hayward. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity and light peachy. Dry, spiced and bitter hoppy. Dry and spiced hoppy finish. Vague caramelish note. Bone dry.
