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.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Poured a hazy golden-orange with a large head which dissapated into a lining of white foam. Lacing was nice and lasting. Nose was citrus - especially orange, as well as biscuity honey malt background. Taste was a very nice blend of hop bitterness and caramel sweetness with some piney, grassy and alcohol notes. Finish was crisp and clean and slightly (but pleasantly) bitter. Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation. This was a very refreshing brew for a warm day and one I wish I had more access to.

On tap at Falling Rock: Beer pours orange in color with a well retained off white head. Aroma is earthy, piney and grassy. Flavor is heavy hops and earthy malt. Nice.

Orion1800 (53) - Piedmont, California, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Wow, this was a full bodied brew that doesn’t lead you to belive it’s a strong IPA. Huge malts are balanced with grapefruity/oily hops. Very little aroma, but good paate and bitter but clean finish.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2007
2007 vintage, 22 oz. bomber bottle, sampled in a tulip glass. Poured a foggy orangey copper with an tight, compact off-white head of creamy foam, small amount of laced sticking. Pungent floral and citric hop aromas, almost barley wine-like, grapefruit oils and rind, pine resins and candied tropical fruits. In the background is a sweet maltiness, pale sugary and toffee. The candied tropical fruits come to forefront in the taste, followed by hop flavors of grapefruit peel and rind, along with herbal leafiness and earthy spice. The sweet sappiness of hops also coats the tongue with a tingling soft numbness. The malts stay underneath the hops, providing a sweet backbone of toasted toffee and ferment sugar. The alcohol is barely noticeable, just a spicy and sappy low grade warmth in the palate. Moderate bodied with the right amount of prickly firm carbonation, this DIPA has a nice rounded feel in the mouth, making this quite easy to consume. Another top notch brew from Full Sail, a solid and dependable brewery.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2008
My first Imperial IPA. From 2008 batch. Pours a clear amber with a two-finger off-white head. Nice amount of lacings. Nice citrus and hop nose. Grapefruit flavor with a nice caramel malt cushion. Perfect carbonation and the flavor becomes smoother as the bubbles lessen and the liquid warms. I tasted this brew so young so I could determine if I wanted to buy some more for the cellar. I will do so. Well recommended.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Tap @ Parkway. Clear amber pour with a short white head leaving a moderate lace. Orange nose, medium heavy body with a toasty malt sweetness. Strong bitter citrus hop middle and finish, ending with a more resinous hop flavor. Medium, fine carbonation. If you like IPAs and want an IIPA with all the hoppiness of an IPA, then you’ll like this FS offering.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. Nice malt and hop aroma, balanced. Caramel flavor, and malt, strong and quite sweet, with toffee and an impression of liquorice; strong bitterness; now the hop carries evident resins. The final is powerful yet balanced. Maybe it lost in hop freshness, but there is good balance in this (bold) brew.
Unfortunately, another bottle that I spoiled, keeping it too long (since Oct ’09), waiting to share it...

zoucrew102 (1420) - - MAR 6, 2016
Bomber. Juicy tropical fruit hop aroma with notes of pineapple as well as some grapefruit and floral hops. Pours clear golden colored with a thin but retentive white head that has some lacing. Starts with juicy tropical fruit flavors with pineapple and grapefruit notes. Finishes slightly dry with citric acidity and slight bitterness from the floral hops. Very nice IPA.

Shag (2843) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Orange color with white head. Aroma contains citrus and pine. The flavor is bitter with some pine and orange. This is very dry for an IPA but I like it. Overall nice!
