Just when you think Full Sail Brewing has abandoned smaller specialty beers in favor of the ever expanding Session series, the brewery announces that it is reviving Brewmaster’s Reserve Slipknot IPA. This small batch brewed, full-bodied golden-orange IPA is brewed with Mosaic, Citra and Cascade hops and is dry-hopped.

More from the press release:

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.”

Full Sail’s Brewmaster Reserve series allows the brewmasters to put their creativity, innovation and passion into small, limited-release beers. These craft brews highlight the direct connection with Full Sail’s farmers, celebrate the art of barrel aging, and explore the effects of time. Over the years, Full Sail’s Brewmaster Reserve series has earned 18 gold medals. Brewmaster Reserve Slipknot IPA is available in limited release in 22 oz. bottles and draft. 7.0% ABV, 80 IBUs.
