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.

From the can. Clear golden color with a big white head that fades down to a sliver. Nose is loaded with citrus fruits; grapefruit, pineapple. The flavor is tons more of the same, lots of juicy citrus fruit and only a touch of bitterness. Just what a sessionable West-coast IPA should be.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2009
On tap at their Scottsdale brewpub. Very slightly hazy light copper supporting a medium off-white head. Floral and spicy aroma. West Coast IPA flavor profile with prominent grapefruit notes and a stiff malty backbone. Refreshingly smooth texture and a bright crisp finish. Very respectable desert brew.

Draft..phoenix. Pours rich, foggy orange...mild hoppy nose and initial flavor ... Has more an APA taste and feel than an IPA....smooth and tasty

SG111 (673) - New York, USA - DEC 29, 2014
On tap at Top Golf, Scottsdale, Az. Pours clear golden color with sizeable eggshell head and lacing. Aroma is orange, very hop forward and little bit of biscuit malt. Flavor is grapefruit, bit of lemon peel, distinct malt backbone. Very well balanced. Not a standout IPA but it is very well done. Not overly hoppy either.

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!

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
c/o Boltz Aroma - nose eludes to an oily West Coast hop. There isn’t 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.

jksipa (616) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at Brick in Phoenix. Pours clear copper with small head that clings well. Nice pine nose with citrus undertones. Medium silky body and medium carbonation. Medium bitterness from start to finish. Decent IPA but nothing to make it stand out.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Big hop character. Bitterness is balanced nicely. Fairly light in color, decent sized head. A nice cross between a IPA and a pale ale. Hope this becomes a regular beer.

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2007
On tap at the brewpub, pours a rather clear golden color, decent head, faint aroma of grassy hops, though there were many other aromas in the air that may have prevented the beer from standing out. Taste is what you’d expect from an IPA, nothing too special. Not too bitter and relatively smooth to drink, went very well with the nachos. I’d call it a good one.
