Whenever I'm in the greater phoenix area, I insist on having a Hop Knot, or on visiting the brewery.

The nose on this fresh off tap was wonderful. Fruit and citrus with that hop cover. Taste is a very nice combo of hops and suitable malt to level it out. Highly drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Fresh sweet grapefruit. Clear gold with a rich off white head. Sweet pithy and peel bitterness, grapefruit and sweetness come in and it finishes with a nice bitterness that fades quick. Nice big but easy drinking IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap pour upon my arrival in PHX...medium clear amber pour with a thick slightly off-white head. Aroma is impressive...bold and clean with lots of fruity (grapefruit in particular) hops, resinous hops and a bit of malt in the background...again, color me impressed. Flavor is quite good as well - good forward hop presence without being overbearing for a ’single’ IPA...the citrus hops shine, but there some piney hop notes, and a decent malt sweetness around to balance things out. Palate is medium bodied and appropriate carbonation. Very good offering that I will probably seek out again!

Pours a finger and half of head on a clear amber body.
The aroma is pine, lemon and grapefruit. Nice.
The taste is moderate pine and grapefruit bitterness with a good malt backbone.
The texture is crisp.
A solid brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can with commonmac. Hazy orange with bubbly white head. Orange citrus and sweet alcohol nose. Pine and resin, alcohol there with hoppiness . Double ipa elements but not perfectly balanced and clean. Pretty good for my first Arizona beer, but nothing to get tied up in knots over.
