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.

Although this beer is not well known throughout the world (or even the United States for that matter), I find myself using this beer as a standard for what I compare all other IPAs to. I am not kidding. This is my epitome of a good IPA. It is floral, smooth, delicious, only slightly bitter, and simply an embodiment of the flavor of fresh hops. Are there hoppier beers out there? Yes. Are there better single IPAs? No. There really aren?t. It is the only beer I?ve ever had that is excessively hoppy without being excessively bitter or "sticky". This IPA is a work of art.

Hazy orange pour with a small White head. Aroma is full of sweet hop aromas. Sweet orange, english winegums, tropical fruits, tangerine, lots of nice fruitiness, very unique. Taste strikes mé as being slightly sour, which is very unique, not as in infected but in the lines of astringent hoppy citrus notes. Surprisingly light bodied and very drinkable. Very nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RasmusOtt (2236) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2011
From trade with nbutler11 . Pours hazy golden amber with off white head. Aroma is rather grassy hops, sweet peach, orange, some bready notes, weak pine, citrus, some malts behind and light tropical notes. Taste is clean crispy hops, bright citrus fruits, grass, orange, peach, grapefruit, weak pine leading to a bitter end. Very straight and good!

On tap at brewpub. A smooth drinking India Pale Ale. Nice balance. Some citrus and pine flavors with malty caramel in the background. Sharp finish but lacking a bitter kick. Tasty but average.

Pours an orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is resin, floral hops, and malt. The taste is orange peel, resiny hops, pine, and a good malt backbone. Excellent IPA!

Draft at brewpub. Pours light orange with a thin head. Big pine sol on the nose. Nice hop flavor on the tongue with a touch of hop bitterness. Solid example of style.

Can at cgarvieuk’s tasting. Orange amber pour, bubbly white head. Big fruit nose, mango, pineapple maybe. Tinned fruits? Very "green" hop character. Slight bready sweetness on the tongue with lots of citrus and some hints at butterscotch perhaps. Surprisingly soft hop finish. Really nice.
