COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Every aspect of this IPA is amplified Ė 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, Brewerís 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.

-Note bottle tasted on 04/29/07 was MUCH better than the tap. Iíd give that one a 4/5 and I have adjusted accordingly On tap at the Falling Rock. The beer was served in a pint glass and was a light orange yellow in color. The smell was faint but grainy. The taste was very malty and a big let-down. I find Full Sail beers to fall at the ends of the spectrum. They are either phenomenal or they suck big time. This one sucked. I will try again with a bottle to see if it makes a difference.

~Aroma Grassy, earthy, grapefruit, with a slight caramel background. Together these aromas create a resinous scent that is hard to describe. ~Pours a clear golden amber color with small persistant white head. ~Earthy hop flavor with grassiness and a pretty intense grapefruit hopiness. Malts barely detectable. Some oakiness at finish. ~Med bodied with med carbonation. Dry. Some hop derived astringency. Very bitter finish. ~ Im not a big fan of this one. Would be nice if more malts were added to help support the hop bitterness. I like hops and bitterness, but this was almost pushed too far. Hopefully it will put some hair on my chest.

I much prefer the Full Sail special IPAís than their regular offering. Nice assertive amount of hops. Pours a nice golden orange. A floral aroma wafts out of the glass.

madvike (3168) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle shared with the wife - Pours with a big, creamy off-white head atop a deep copper pour. Aroma is sweet, bready malt with nicely balanced citrus hops, lemon, booze, and a little milkiness. The taste is different, with some caramel malt initially, then a transition into some real deep and intense grassy hops that bite in the back of the mouth. Itís like some of the real bitter weeds I pull out of my garden--not appetizing. Way too astringent--goes past grapefruit and into something altogether different. Too bad...this was showing some promise until I tasted it.

notalush (5626) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Hazy golden beer, with a thick, soapy lace - aroma of dry, crackery malts, herbal, minty character, earthy hops, kafir lime leaves - soft carbonation, full in the mouth - dry, biscuity malts pair well with potent, barky, quinine-ish bitterness - this bitterness lingers long into the finish - the malt profile seems more british than american, but I canít really complain - this is a fairly solid ipa - youíve gotta like your ipas on the dryer side, though

A bargain for the price. Solid DIPA but nothing critically outstanding. It is half the price of the others so worth stocking up on. Pours nice, decent body, decent finish. Very pleasurable beer.

This is about the 4th time Iíve had Slipknot and each time itís very enjoyable but seems to be missing something to really push it into the upper echelonís of IIPAís for me. Donít know if it needs more hops, or more body but it lacks something. STILL, very easy to enjoy and I always grab a few bombers when I run accross them.

This bottle, the beer pours out a dark, golden yellow/light amber color with a sizeable white head with nice retention. Aroma starts out with a noticeable malt profile, caramel and iced tea notes and then the hops show up and then make you notice. Citrusy, orangey hops with a showing of pine too. Flavor has some light toasted malt notes, definitely piney with light caramel showing up. It definitely showcases the hops, but they arenít overpowering like a good IIPA should be. Itís balanced, which is good but I do like my IIPAís to be an avalance of hoppy goodness.
