COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Why Double Knot for a name? Well, it’s essentially a double Hop Knot. Now does that mean we just went and doubled the alcohol content? No, but close; Hop Knot is around 6% and Double Knot is around 9.2%. So, did we double the hops? Well, yes! We did! Hop Knot uses around 3.5 lbs per barrel and Double Knot is around 7.5 lbs per barrel (Okay, a little more than double, don’t sue us). That’s really the main difference between the two; slightly higher alcohol content and twice the hops. But what a difference if you’re a true hop-head.

On tap. Pour is deep gold with a white head. Aroma shows notes of honey, caramel, mango, pineapple, peach, and pine. Flavor shows the same with an additional earthiness that wasn’t quite present in the nose. Overall body is moderate, sticky, and finishes with relatively balanced bitterness.

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!

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2010
(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.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2010
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

Tmoney99 (10722) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2010
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.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2010
On tap at the brewery and again at the AZ strong beer fest. Deep gold color. Nice roasty caramel malt flavor with a ton of citrus and pine hops. Really good stuff!

On tap at the 2010 AZ Strong Beer Festival. Pours clear dark gold with a nice white head. The nose is ripe citrus and caramel malt. The taste follows suit with a nice tart hop finish. Medium mouthfeel. Good DIPA.

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.

BOLTZ7555 (2822) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Sampled @ Scottsdale location. Vibrant golden tangerine pour with a white cotton head that left clumps of foam hanging to the inside of the glass. Aroma is bright and floral with orange rind, grapefruit pith, and lemon zest. Flavor combines citrus with honey-baked biscuit. Nice combination of resinous hops and subtle caramel malt. This is definitely Hop Knot on steroids. Really nice beer.
