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.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2010
Amber-orange with a dissipating white head that lacks a little in tenacity. Aroma is laden with citrus hops, fruity sweetness and a grainy, biscuity malt. Flavor is hoppy bitter, grassy with an earthy finish. Body is a little soapy and resinous. Not bad but I expect more layered hops in my DIPAs.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours medium amber, thin head, okay lacing. Nose is very dry, with hops tending more towards spice than to pine or citrus. Rather simple, very softly metallic. Flavor is much the same as the nose, straightforward, simple, dry, and mildly metallic. Nothing really wrong, but this somehow misses the point entirely.

ownch411 (21) - USA - FEB 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light orange/gold in color. Thin and short head. Light hops/biscuit in aroma. Bland on the palate but a good finish with lots of flavor. Another IPA.

LilBeerDoctor (4193) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle thanks to scrizzz. Pours a clear orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of garlicky hops, light citrus. Flavor of garlicky hops, grainy malt, citrus and tropical fruits, hop resins. MMMM, tasty! Great hop character, great beer! 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear orange with a small, white head. Aroma is earthy, herbal, and grassy. Flavor is a little bready malt with more of the grassy, earthy, slightly lemony hop presence and a lightly bitter finish. Pleasantly dry. This doesn’t have as much of a hop kick as I like from IIPAs, but the hop aromatics it has are quite nice.

3.4
savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 15, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with a sticky dense white head. Aroma is lots of citrus, pine, floral, cereal, sugar and a mild soapy scent. Taste is sweet malt up front and then slowly fades to a strong hop bitterness, there is a very light alcohol taste. Medium body with average carbonation, a slightly syrupy mouth feel and a long bitter finish. Overall a nice IIPA, not one I would get really excited to drink every year but would go back to it for sure.

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pour is an orange/red tint with minimal white head.Nose is Citrus, caramel, grain, cereal, pine, and hops. Flavor is minimal malt, citrus, hops, and an earthy grain. Palate is minimal oil and sticky. A decent iipa for the price.

-Note bottle tasted on 04/29/07 was MUCH better than the tap. I’d 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.
