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 pieÖ 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.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 21, 2011
Hazy orange pour with a small White head. Aroma is full of sweet hop aromas. Sweet orange, english winegums, tropical fruits, tangerine, lots of nice fruitiness, very unique. Taste strikes mé as being slightly sour, which is very unique, not as in infected but in the lines of astringent hoppy citrus notes. Surprisingly light bodied and very drinkable. Very nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

c/o Boltz Aroma - nose eludes to an oily West Coast hop. There isnít much in the way of citrus. Appearance - body color is golden in color; the liquid is clear; the head sets up at about 2" and white, and slowly settles down; there is also some dappled lacing Taste - very nice combination of West Coast hops and citrus (grapefruit and some subdued lemon) Palate - body is medium; the texture is approaching oily; the carbonation is average; the finish moderate in length and a touch of bitter in the middle of the tongue. Pleasant finish.

Tasty little brew. Deserves highmarks for its middle-road excellence. Full of nice flavors, very fresh tasting out of the can. Good drinkin beer, not too heavy for the pool.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Few things make me happier than the moment I crack a can of beer, hear the hiss and smell the powerful perfume of Humulus lupulus. This one here, doesnít disappoint on this front. Perhaps itís the novelty of the can, perhaps it was the setting to which this was consumed, but everything worked and myself and a few belly busting friends downed a 12er of this in record time. It was delicious. I got wrecked. The rest is history.

beerisgoodforu (992) - NÝrresundby, DENMARK - APR 9, 2012
Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and sweet malt. Flavor has lots of dank grapefruit and an almost cat pee flavor which makes me think of Simcoe hops, again I get orange, tangerine and pineapple with some sweet malt. The body is on the lighter side of medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty IPA, but feels a little more like an APA since it isnít as hoppy as most IPAs.

KUEric (938) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2009
On Tap at the Scottsdale Brewery location. Good beer. Lots of hops, like an IPA from the west coast should be. Nice clean look with minimal head, not a ton of aroma. Flavor was hops and delicious.

Fantastic aroma of floral citrus hops. There was not much bitterness to the beer, but was very refreshing and light. When I say light, however I mean almost too light in body. The appearance and aroma were fantastic and the beer tasted good on first drink, but overall it fell short.

fiveacestx (923) - Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Can to shaker - pours cloudy heavy yellow with a nice head and lacing. Has a nice grapefruit hop nose and taste, a medium body and dry finish. Good IPA and one that is local but could complete nationally.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 On tap at Four Peaks and at the Sheraton Phoenix Airport. Crystal clear light copper color witha quickly disappearing white head. Strong fresh hop aroma rising off this. Astringent, slighty resiny pine and grapefruit and light citrus flavors from the hops with a good balance from the caramel malt flavor, but itís really just there as a base for the hops. Definitely a hop lovers beer, the bitterness bites in and sticks around long after youíve swallowed it. From reading a few of the other reviews, I have a feeling this beer is best fresh from the tap rather than from a bottle thatís had to travel. All these delicious hop flavors probably donít fare as well when they arenít as fresh which is a shame for those who arenít in Phoenix to get it that way. Tasty, well-made IPA.
