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, Brewers 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.

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.

Pours a finger and a half of head on a clear straw body. The aroma is ripe lemon, grapefruit, and a bit of pineapple. The taste is moderate pine and grapefruit bitterness. Good balance. The texture is crisp. Its a solid IPA.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out some sharp piney hops, some stone fruits and biscuity malt. Flavour is similar and quite sharp, with piney hops, biscuity malt and a touch of fruitiness. Fairly dry, astringent and somewhat metallic on the finish. Not the cleanest and well-crafted, but it works.

Originally reviewed: 5/9/09. Pours a clear dark orange with moderate bubbles rising through. Great frothy white head on top that retains very well. Some spotty lacing, very little though. Smells of pineapple, candy, bananas, and cherry malt. Interesting for a Imp. IPA. Mouthfeel is firm and crisp. Slight wetness on the back end, but drinkable enough. Now the flavor, this I cant figure out. It tastes like an Imperial Cherry cough syrup. This is really sweet and cloying. Tons of sweet fruit all over this. Finishes bitter, but the sweetness just overpowers this beer. This is really strange. The hops are there, but this is severely unbalanced. Not sure about this beer. Approach with hesitancy.

Bomber from a while ago. Good smell, plenty of hops here with a light alcohol presence. Taste is hoppy and kind of sweet, easy to drink with a good citrus flavor. Not bad, but in the huge world of Double IPAs, it does little to stand out.

22. NOTE: the bottle I am rating is a cellared 2009 vintage of this beer, so adjust for aging accordingly! Flavor has concentrated considerably with age. I drank another bottle of this when it was fresh, and I recall it being super in-your-face resiny & bitter, almost undrinkably so. Im a hops fiend and I could barely finish it. Woody dry finish, thick caramelly, almost bourbony malt profile. Tastes more like a 9% barleywine than a IIPA. Definitely worth cellaring vs drinking fresh.

portableparty (2336) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Bottle. Hazy amber pour with small quick soapy white head. Aroma is spruce and citrus caramel with some florals. Taste is lemon and citrus with some caramel and pine and spruce (resinis). Palate is medium feel with a fizzy chaulky finish. Enjoyed!

fiulijn (20218) - 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...

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 youll like this FS offering.
