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.

Pours golden with a huge, frothy, white head. Nose is a bouquet of flowers; hop heaven. Taste is very well-balanced undercurrent of malt with robust hop bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Quite good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can, thanks Josh! Pours a clean light hay color with nice foamy white head. Aroma of fresh citrus. Light mouthfeel, with a clean non-bitter finish. Really enjoyable and delicious.

Can thanks to Russell. Pours a clear orange gold with medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity hop and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with light dry bitter hop. Decent.

Very unusual beer. Nice golden hue, great long-lasting head. The aroma is very tangerine citrus, but the taste is almost more like a carbonated juice! Very surprising.

A rich aroma of citrus and hops with a thick head and a caramel colour. Taste of bread with a hint of grapefruit an a slightly bitter palate of orange.

Poured from a can. Clear golden color, full white frothy head. Nice citrus and floral hops aroma. Medium body with a mild hops flavor but transitions quickly to a bread and citrus palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a can with a canning date of less than 1 month old. Strong citrus aroma. Very inviting. Very easy drinking IPA. His beer is my go to beer whenever I travel to Arizona, it’s a no brainer.

Awesome IPA on cask at the brewpub. Beautiful aromas and great bitterness balance. This is a go to staple.

maddmatt639 (215) - Pacifica, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Some retention and great lacing. A rather weak aroma. Smells of citrus hops and a slight sent of sweet malt. Tastes of stale hops and malt. Not the most enjoyable IPA. Hopefully it's just a bad batch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good strong standar IPA, goes beyond the standard, pushes the envelope toward an Imperial with a good IBU rating and robust aroma.
