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.

Cotton candy & hops nose. Strong bittering hops, rich malt - almost to right but I dig it. A hint of alcohol @ the finish w. more rich malt. Almost borders on a strong ale.

Had this tonight at PAPAGO. Served a gold yellow with a good head and great lacing that hangs in sheets on thre glass. Mild hops aroma with malt and citrus. Easy drinking beer with a easy hops flavor that makes for a good easy drinking beer.

Interesting, but tasty beer that isn’t a pale or an IPA but is still satisfying. Nice American hop aroma up front with some citrus, perhaps orange or tangerine, and a little spice. Light to medium amber color with a firm, but quickly disapating head. Flavor is hop first, malt second, but not overpoweringly bitter. Nicely balanced toward hops. Finishes quite dry and clean. Certainly one of Four Peaks better beers. There has been some discussion that this will be Four Peaks’ next bottled brew.

Wonderful job here by Four Peaks, just the right "bite". Floral aroma, mellow enough to go down super smooth and hoppy enough for a crisp clean sensation when it hits the taste buds. A beer you can enjoy drinking.

A nice hoppy beer that is not overpowering like some of the bigger IPAS that are coming out these days. One of Four Peaks better beers. Their beers are hit or miss, this one hits the spot.

Big hop character. Bitterness is balanced nicely. Fairly light in color, decent sized head. A nice cross between a IPA and a pale ale. Hope this becomes a regular beer.

Draught @ Papago<P> The beer as it sets in the mug a clear gold color, the head semi-creamy and bright white in color, lace forms a fine curtain upon the glass. Slight floral aroma but sweet malt dominates this fresh and clean nose, sweet and rich malt start, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is fair to middling in its acidity, hops are pleasant in their spicy presence, dry and lingering aftertaste, a pleasant enough brew, drinkable.

tap-Tucson Beer Fest ahh, this must have been added into the database by squidget(Sebastian). He and I sampled this brew at the same time. This brew has a wonderful citrus aroma full of pineapple, grapefruit and tangerine. Unfortunately, the aroma was the best thing about this brew-pretty one dimensional. not much malt to speak of, but thats definately not what this sytle of brew is about. Good one dimensional brew nontheless

This sits a brilliantly clear copper color and is topped by a pale tan head. The aroma is a nice mix of fruity notes and a pine like aromatic note. The fruity notes are dominant with apricot and grapefruit being evident in the forefront. There is a nice piney character to this beer that sort of acts like a backbone to the citrus notes. The taste is quite sweet up front, it even lingers through the bitter finish. The citrusy hop notes also linger on, and they are really quite nicely done. I get notes of tangerine, apricot, orange, sharp notes of pine, basil, and spruce. This is definitely quite nice.

Rated September 2003
The aroma of this one is immediate lychee and grapefruit, I think that I detect a hint of mandarin orange as well. This beer is lightly sweet and has lots of hop flavor through out this beer. It finishes nicely bitter and has just enough malt character to carry the hop attack. This is a nice beer from this brewery, they were not afraid of the flavor in this one.
