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, 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.

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.

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 doesnt have as much of a hop kick as I like from IIPAs, but the hop aromatics it has are quite nice.

savnac (2391) - 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.

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. Id 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.

~Aroma Grassy, earthy, grapefruit, with a slight caramel background. Together these aromas create a resinous scent that is hard to describe. ~Pours a clear golden amber color with small persistant white head. ~Earthy hop flavor with grassiness and a pretty intense grapefruit hopiness. Malts barely detectable. Some oakiness at finish. ~Med bodied with med carbonation. Dry. Some hop derived astringency. Very bitter finish. ~ Im not a big fan of this one. Would be nice if more malts were added to help support the hop bitterness. I like hops and bitterness, but this was almost pushed too far. Hopefully it will put some hair on my chest.
