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.

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!

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.

In can, thanks Franz. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Lovely resinous hop aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and peach. Flavours similar with a nice barley backbone. Chewy mouth-feel, mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Very nice hop and malt balance.
