Hood River, Oregon – January 12, 2016 – Just in time to lift you out of your post-holiday slump, Full Sail Brewing Company is releasing an old favorite from its Brewmaster Reserve series, Slipknot IPA. Slipknot IPA features a big Northwest hop aroma and robust bitterness balanced with a full malt body.
“Slipknot leads with aromas of citrus, pine and stone fruit,” says Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson. “Balanced by a clean, caramel malt body, Slipknot’s multi-layered hop flavors lead to a crisp assertive finish. Slipknot is, once again, the beer for the serious hop lover.”
Every aspect of this IPA is amplified – from the upfront hop aroma and bitterness to the big malt body. “Brewed originally in 2004, Slipknot makes are rare reappearance updated with new hop varieties and a dryer malt profile,” says Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter. “2-Row Northwest Pale and Caramel malts provide the right amount of malt character to support a wonderfully hoppy surplus of Cascade, Mosaic and Citra hops. Extensive dry-hopping enhances the aroma and late hop flavors.”
