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.

Cask. Great creamy head, oaky amber, clear beer. Grapefruity aroma, sparkling hops. Mineral, light diacetyl, not hugely different from the standard hop knot. Medium to slightly heavy body. On tap, brewpub.

Dogbrick (7682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
On draught at Yard House in Scottsdale. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Purist ratings would score higher on taste alone but after reading the description it lends itself to higher expectations. It would score 100 for a Play It Safe IPA. Good for AZ but an underachiever considering the opportunity to go big.

12oz can in a tulip. Pours clear, amber with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and light piney hops plus some pale/caramel malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. Not bad, but nothing exceptional.

12 oz can into a tulip glass. No date indicated. Thanks to azdback for this! Pours a nice clear dark amber body. Neat fluffy white foam simmers down to a thick edging and a thin cap. Super sticky lacing. Aroma is grapefruit heavy with a bit of pine and dank resin. Taste is similar with bitter grapefruit and pine. Finishes floral with some caramel malt. One of the driest finishes I’ve ever had in an IPA. So dry it chaps the lips. Mouth feel is a bit watery but the bitterness helps carry the favors through to the very end. Overall this is a really solid IPA that I would never kick out of the fridge. I really love that dry finish, pretty unique for the style.

12 oz can. Amber color with a white head. Fresh and fruity aromas. Flavors of citrus, pine and tropical fruit. Very nice and balanced hoppy finish. Definitely a keeper.
