Slipknot IPA (Full Sail Brewing)
Ratebeer 3.49 86th percentile
Beer Advocate B
Yet another IPA in my fridge. Well the nose is right with puffs of sweet cotton candy and citrus. It is upfront bitter hop assertive, rather astringent like ruby red grapefruit. There is still the strong malt backbone, but somehow it seems a bit below average.
The nice resiny coating that would not go away. I felt like a dog that was just given peanut butter. It didn't feel right, almost got a -2.
Alcohol Content +1 7.8%
This was slightly stronger than Brockton on the IPA scale.
Ingame Enhancement +1
It looks like critical mass for L4D is building in the shire, just in time for L4D2 to come out.
If you like a strong IPA, but not too strong then this is the one.
Racer 5 IPA and the bailout
Paddywack IPA (Nelson Brewing)
Dogfish Head 90min IPA
