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.

mcberko (13863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
On tap at Four Peaks in Tempe, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out a touch of diacetyl, along with piney hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is better, with piney hops, some citrus and biscuity malt. Lacking character and oomph. It’s inoffensive but decently made.

Draft sample. Poured clear amber color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate resin eathy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.
