4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Double Hop is officially my new favoite brew by Four Peaks. Served in a smaller snifter due to the high alcohol content, this beer is bright bronze in color with a medium white head. Taste and aroma of sweet pine, with a more delicate malt finish than you would expect from a double IPA. Hop Knot is a great beer and this is doubly great!

(draught at Papago). Pous copper color with white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is bitter with very little sweetness, yet it’s not overpowering and quite nicely balanced. Lighter bodied-if possible for a DIPA. Finish is bitter, but pleasant. Overall, a really nice beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
on tap in tempe 2/8/2010.
pours the color of crystal clear freshly pressed apple juice. it is topped by a sizable off white head which fades to a film leaving behind random splotches of foam.
intensely hoppy nose... amped up hop knot (imagine that!)... pineapple, pine, grapefruit, onions, flowers, peaches, caramel and a bunch of spice. i want to keep sniffing it!
the flavor is more of the same.... my kind of double ipa!... all hop with little malty sweetness to get in the way... pineapple, pine, grapefruit , faint caramel, cinnamon-y earthy british style hops, grass, flowers, skunky onions, apricots and a light bitterness on the finish.
the body is medium though thin when compared to its sugary brethren. it is insanely quaffable given the spicy numbing and prickliness on the tongue .
wow, we finally have a winner! 9/3/8.5/5/18/4.4

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured clear amber color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy resin eathy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations and a standout for this brewer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow! I had this at AZ’s strong beerfest and again I had a snifter yesterday at the Snottsdale location. This stuff is nice and dangerous! Good thing my professional designated driver was there... Thanks sweetie! Poured a golden copper’ish color with little head. Aroma was out of this world! Smelled almost like fresh cut lawn clippings shoved into my face! The taste was smooth and crisp. This was a double IPA done right. They went overboard without trying to make it obvious they were going for a hit! Nice one.
