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.

This orange ale poured with a modest off-white head and a sweet malty aroma. The flavor is caramel malt with a grassy bitter hop finish. The overall flavor is unusual, but not entirely pleasing.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2010 22 oz bottle - re-rate - Pours an Amber/yellow color, slightly cloudy, small white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet, with soapy, sort of metallicy hops, apples, pears, raisens, and light caramel. Flavor has metallic hops, sweet caramel, kind of one dimentional. Not terrible but very good either.

Pours a very pale amber with thin off white head. Nose is faint and slightly of rubbing alcohol, with some hoppiness. Flavor is blunt and bitter in an aspirin kind of way. Honestly I expected much better.

Draft at the Parkway’s Day of IPAs. Bready/yeasty nose. Hazy and still. Almost peachy palate. Empty finish. Gets almost vinous as it warms. Weird beer, not a success, and really surprising--I thoroughly expected to enjoy this beer.

Poured a slightly cloudy tangerine color with a small white head. Aroma was of very light hops, maltiness, and floral. Flavor was sweet, bitter, and floral. Not a very exciting IIPA and one i would probably buy again.

Really disappointed with this one. Chewy assault of bitterness that coats your mouth and sticks. There are some great flavors in there, but there is something odd about the bitterness and the viscosity. Leaves a horrible aftertaste. This is my 6th Full sail, and the 5 that is sub 3.0. I won’t be sending any more money their way.

Really orange in the glass - virtually no head. First several tastes were pleasant and citrusy, decent balance of hops and bitter. As it warmed, it became overly bitter and syrupy (brother in law had a sip and likened it to chewing on freshly cut pine boards - no idea if he’s actually done that, but he’s spent enough time sawing pine that i wouldn’t put it past him).

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bomber served in a tulip. Pours clear, amber-orange with a short off-white head. Leaves sparse lacing and has short retention. Aroma has dough and nuts with some orange-lemon citrus. Flavor has malt up front followed by a punch of piney, bitter hops. Lacks sweetness entirely. Medium body, decent carbonation, and bitter finish.

Bottle pours orange-copper with a decent size off-white head with no lacing. Aroma is strangely funky and suprisingly malt driven for being an IIPA. Nose shows peach, grapefruit, light caramel, wood, funky earth, and a slight vegetable note that I cannot put my finger on. Flavor shows the same with the malt leaning more on the bread side than caramel. Overall body is moderate, and finishes with moderate to heavy bitterness. Interesting I guess, but I can’t say that I would actually seek this one out.
