4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a orange with a sticky white head that leaves lacing all over the edge of my snifter. aroma is sticky citrusy hops and malt. flavor is hop forward with a decent malt backbone. finish is a little strange and sawdust hop like which threw me off at first but now i think i’m diggin for more of this.

On tap at the Tempe brewery. First off, Hop Knot is a great IPA ... super flowery, light, sharp, and flavorful. Double Knot is up the same alley. Same hop bill, which is perfect (Simcoe in there?) ... great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Tempe location. Pours a bright copper color with a trim off-white head. Loaded with citrus and hops in the aroma. Tastes of further hops, flour, malt, and apricot on the mid palate. Finishes like cotton, but otherwise a really great DIPA.

Flavorfull double ipa with good citrus flavor and malt I thought was little thin and the good cool and crisp thin g for the palte was good for me. Good brew.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted at brewry 2/5. rich, almost tawny color in snifter. More golden in 10oz old-school beer glass. Pleasant nose (dont recall details). Taste is incredibley balanced between malt, hops and alcohol...nothing sticks out. Palate is smooth, slightly creamy. You just want to drink more and more which pretty much sums up the overall experience. EXCELLENT ALE.
