Hood River, Ore. – Full Sail Brewing Company’s Brewmaster Reserve Slipknot IPA is now available in 6-packs for the first time. This three-time gold medal winner features a big Northwest hop aroma and robust bitterness balanced with a full malt body.

“Slipknot is, once again, the beer for the serious hop lover,” says Executive Brewmaster Jamie Emmerson. “When we first made our Classic IPA back in the 90s, hardly anyone was making IPAs. A lot has changed since then, but we’re still on the craft beer forefront constantly combining enthusiasm with expertise. With Brewmaster Reserve Slipknot IPA, we’ve added a Northwest influence and amplified everything.”

Slipknot leads with aromas of citrus, pine and stone fruit and is balanced by a clean, caramel malt body, with multi-layered hop flavors that lead to a crisp assertive finish. “Brewed originally in 2004, Slipknot makes a rare reappearance updated with new hop varieties and a dryer malt profile,” says Full Sail Brewmaster Jim Kelter. “Slipknot features a big Northwest hop aroma and robust bitterness balanced with a full malt body. Cascade, Nugget, Citra and Mosaic hops deliver pungent scents of citrus and pine. Extensive dry-hopping enhances this character with flavors to match. Northwest 2-Row Pale and Crystal malts add a rich, spicy malt character.”

Full Sail recently rebranded the packaging on its entire core line of beers as well as its seasonal Brewmaster Reserve offerings. On Slipknot’s new 6-packs, the artistically rendered slipknot and water lines are hand-drawn in vibrant blues and yellows by Portland-based TWEEQiM creativeLab’s MiQ Willmott.

Slipknot IPA pairs well with Dungeness crab, roasted salmon, clam chowder, curried foods, hot wings, braised red meats such as lamb and beef, gingerbread or spiced molasses cake, and mild cheeses like Gorgonzola or Monterey Jack.

Award winning? Heck yeah. Incredible ingredients? Definitely. Full Sail’s Brewmaster Reserve series is small-batch, limited-edition beer made by brewers with an unwavering desire to make the best beer around using locally grown malt, hops, yeast and pure Mount Hood water. Brewmaster Reserve Slipknot IPA is available January through May in 6-packs, 12 oz. bottles, on draft. 7.0% ABV, 80 IBUs. Full Sail’s Brewmaster Reserve – innovation, inspiration and Ridiculously Tasty Beer!
