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.

Ungstrup (36901) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 25, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong grassy notes, but also a light spicy note. The flavor is sweet matly with strong notes of hops, amongst other giving it notes of grapefruit, leading to a dry and very bitter end. Nice.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Slightly hazy, amber golden with an off-white head. Fresh aroma with lots of fruit - peach in particular. Quite full-bodied with a solid, sweetish malt base, again these fruity peach accents and then a raw, bitter finish. I wouldve loved some more subtlety in the hopping. 250407

fiulijn (20256) - 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...

Oakes (17129) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Golden-amber colour. Minimal aroma, but a little pineyness. The flavour is woody, the body chewy. For the style, its a on the lighter side, which I prefer, but flavour development suffers as well.

mcberko (16920) - 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.

bhensonb (14964) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Aroma of pine so prominent that it made me recall the cat box. Or the old Airwick pine. Humor. It has a great piny aroma. Light coppery, aprioct color with a white head that sticks around and laces. Starts with piney hop, but smooth and mellow. Followed by a sweetness that is finally rather obliterated by the hop. The mouthfeel is reasonably medium, and there is a light burn down the esophogus. Could be hop, could be alcohol. It leaves a really clean refreshing feeling on the tongue. Its truly good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange copper with creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is dank and tropical fruit. Medium mouth, juicy hop, dank, lingering resin finish, very good.
