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.

2009 bottle. pours with a bone colored head over a clear copper or bronze body. Aroma is dank, fruity, and orange hops with a slightly herbal and caramel back note. Taste is cleanly hop bitterness with light esters, caramel and herbal/pine C-hop notes.. Medium carbonation with a dryish mouthfeel.

Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Bready/yeasty nose. Hazy and still. Almost peachy palate. Empty finish. Gets almost vinous as it warms. Weird beer, not a success, and really surprising--I thoroughly expected to enjoy this beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2008
2008 bomber. Poured healthy medium golden with a short, thicker cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up bright pine and floral hoppage with definite citrus undertones.. pale malt and grapefruit meat sweetness backed it up.. nice! The flavor opened with sharp grapefruit and metallic notes.. caramel and grapefruit rolled over the middle, surrounded by pine and grapefruit bitterness.. finished sharp like the open, adding some warm alcohol emphasis. Medium-bodied and it never really found its groove on the palate.. felt a little stronger than it actually was.

Ernest (7320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit, apricot, flowers), moderately malty (cookie), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent. Yet another basic hopfest from the northwest. Quite a teeter-totter from when it first hits your tongue until the finish...goes from too sweet to too bitter very quickly, and unsettling effect. Nothing much of interest here, perhaps a little maltier in the nose than some. Has that raw bread dough yeast smell, common to lots of American beers, not something I enjoy. Rather flimsy body for its size/style. Drinkable, but not recommended.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Slightly hazy copper wth a lasting off white rocky cap. Big balanced aroma between sticky piney and floral and orange rind hops with a big pale malt and slight caramel maltiness. Big stern but balanced flavor that leans floral and citrusy but is malty and full and biscuity enough to back it up. A little standard but damn tasty, full and balanced.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Shared at the 12/18/04 Wisconsin gathering: Pours a clear copper with a thin white lacy head. Aroma is sweet and toffee-like with some subtle western US hop presence. Nice caramel sweet body has a mild (at least for an IIPA) hoppy balance. This is practically a regular IPA by today’s standards. Thanks to DavidP for sharing!

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.

AmEricanbrew (6727) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a huge frothy head. The medium strong hop smell is citrusy, flowery. Medium bodied and softly carbonated. A strong malty sweet grain flavor anchors and meshes nicely with a fairly strong citrusy hop taste. A most tasty IPA.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - 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.

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!
