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.

If you like hoppy beer, this is about as hoppy as I have had, great bitter taste! You don’t expect it from the apperance in the glass, or the aroma, but the flavor punches you in the mouth! I love this beer! My favorite when i am at Four Peaks!

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 tap at the brewery...no aroma due to the cavernous building and hundreds of fans...flavor is citrus, spice ( cinnamon maybe?) and floral hops. it has a nice malt backbone and the sweetness level is the perfect amount to balance the bitterness without being over the top and annoying. nice brew and great with spicy food...7/3/7/3/14/3.4

straight from the new bottles! i could drink this stuff all day! loads of grapefruit, non resinous pine, flowers and a solid malty backbone. it feels much richer and lux from the bottle than on tap.7/3/7/4/16/3.7

This was a solid brew consisting of some simple malts and a very decent amount of hops. Wasnt a southern cal ipa but wasnt an east coaster either, kinda a mix. Good session brew.

tap. A nice solid offering but doesn’t have anything that sets it apart from other ipa’s. Good enough that I would have again though.

Tap. Very fresh hop head. Golden pour, nice aroma, smooth finish. They need to bottle this one.

Fantastic aroma of floral citrus hops. There was not much bitterness to the beer, but was very refreshing and light. When I say light, however I mean almost too light in body. The appearance and aroma were fantastic and the beer tasted good on first drink, but overall it fell short.

On tap. Clear golden coloured with a small head. Nice wellbalanced hoppyness. Notes of fruits and pine. Feels very smoothe - nice mouthfull.

Jackalope (1) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2006 does not count
I will have to write more after my second helping. Suffice it to say that I have never come across a more well-balanced hop profile. I found it on tap at Magpies Resturant on 4th Ave in Tucson.

On tap @ Four Peaks poured a clear copper with a creamy lingering amber head. Aromas of carmel, tangerine, orange and a hint of pine. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavors of carmel and citrus with a dry bitter finish.
