Full Sail Slipknot Imperial IPA


83 / 100
2007 Brewmaster Reserve, 22 oz.

Found this in the back coolor of the West Hollywood, BevMo in my desperate attempt to find a half decent chilled beer. It was in a box that clearly had a few removed from it, so I figured that was like saying, "You can buy one too!" though the cashier gave me a bit of grizzled "Where you get this?" when I was at the check out. Oh well, I wasn't stopped and gots to take this new-to-me beer over to a buddy's for the evening.

The appearance was good not great: a bit light for a DIPA. The smell wasn't though - big citrus hops profile. There's sweetness in the underlining malt character but it takes a few sips to reach under the bombastic hops.

At 7.8 this is not an all day session beer, but it goes down very easily. Hopefully this beer gets made more often, I liked.
