COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hop Knot IPA is made only from American malt and lots of American hops, which produce a big, broad-shouldered, hoppy beer backed up by a character as warm as, well, Mom and apple pie… Hop Knot IPA get its peculiar name from the weaving of four different hops added at four separate times during the brewing process. Including our cavernous hop-back, which gets so stuffed with whole leaf hops that we feel genuine guilt for its excess. Hop Knot is an ale that is to be enjoyed with friends, spicy food or any time you need a good hop fix without the harsh bitterness. We hope you enjoy this pioneering beer made in the bold spirit of Americans everywhere.

Can. Didn’t seem overly fresh. Much more subdued than the obviously fresher impy. Just an average brew as drank.

Pours an orange-yellow for with a light floral aroma. Taste is simply, clean, easy drinking. Taste of sight citrus with a decent hop aftertaste. An not so complex beer that was good on a hot Arizona day

cloudy orange-yellow, smooth offwhite head. malty and hoppy aroma, quite bitter. seems fuller than what the abv might indicate. slighlty flowery but mainly bitter hoppy flavor, with a good dry malty balance. the hops have this subtle flowery note that is quite nice.

Whenever I'm in the greater phoenix area, I insist on having a Hop Knot, or on visiting the brewery.
