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.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Orangey fruitiness and wooden hoppiness merge into the caramel crackers offered by the sturdy maltiness. A drinkable Double IPA from Full Sail which still surprised because of its overall timidity and lack of brightness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the transparent light golden.
-Some hay is suggested by the malts.
-The nose was rather tame for a Double IPA.
-Wooden hop resins bring flavor, bitterness and dryness.
-A flavorful drink no doubt, but one has come to expect much better from Full Sail.

Bottle; 2007 vintage. Thx Paul, Jon & Rich!

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2009
courtesy of fishingnet. Pours copper, thin white head. Aroma fresh hops. Taste, hoppy, with a tingly spicy-bitter mouthfeel. Drinkable, not something that stands out.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2006
Golden beer with a slight haziness about it. Very thick and sticky white head. Very fresh grapefruity, cascady aroma, light bready/yeasty smells as well. There is also a hint of spiciness to the hopping as well. Flavour is well balanced, fresh hops (grapefruit/spice) with a bit of resiny pine flavour as well. Some fruitiness is also noticible, especially orange, peach, and papaya. As it warms, the clean spicy/piny hops become more prominent. Long, piny finish with just enough pale malt backing it up. Tasty brew.

marcus (9222) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 23, 2008
This orange ale poured with a modest off-white head and a sweet malty aroma. The flavor is caramel malt with a grassy bitter hop finish. The overall flavor is unusual, but not entirely pleasing.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Bottle - Clear and bright rusty orange color, with a medium sized typical tan head. Toasted hoppy nuts, oranges and sweet yeast in the aroma. Watery for the first second on the lips, then a little aggressive hop flavor, turning to a thick and creamy texture before a dry chinook-like finish. Flavors are all hops: bark-like woody and leafy hop flavors, some sharp, stinging roasted pine hop notes. Interesting brew, but just not hitting the button for me.

bb (8557) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Bottle. Rich copper amber with an off-white head. Big pine resin aroma with caramel backing. Pine resin flavor with some grapefruit and caramel. Lighter body than expected. Nice flavor, but would be better if bitterness lingered a little longer.

Bomber. Pours a dark orange body with a thin white head. The aroma is pretty nice; some sweet hops covered in honey and a bunch of malts. The flavor was full of malts and caramel, but throughout there was a fairly bitter hop aspect which was a bit different than I was used to; grapefruit for sure, but also something like soap. Not bad at all. Really easygoing and tasty.

Courtesy of THE douglas88, thanks again. The pour is clear copper with orange hues and micro thin off white head. The modest aroma has rich malt sweetness, pine hops, earthiness, floral hops and grapefruit hops. Overall the aroma is a bit timid in strength but does manage to deliver a nice array of aromatics. The taste is full and rich with solid grapefruit, pine, earthy, spicy and floral hops. Most hop variety notes seem to be accounted for here. I get a nice load of malt sweetness holding up the hops and allowing the whole thing to ride into the finish with a thin slick layer of lingering malt sweetness as well as fading hop bitterness.
