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.

Clear golden pour with medium quickly disappearing off white head. Mild grapefruit nose. Light body smooth mouthfeel. Vague citrusy notes, grapefruit, pineapple. Mild resiny finish with a light malty aftertaste. Totally a session IPA

Bright deep straw clear as a berk. Thick frothy white head. Huge lovely aroma of tropical fruit. Super aroma. Flavor doesn’t quite live up but lightly hoppy. A nice beer.

On tap at brewpub. A smooth drinking India Pale Ale. Nice balance. Some citrus and pine flavors with malty caramel in the background. Sharp finish but lacking a bitter kick. Tasty but average.

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.

Can. Clear, golden orange color with some tiny bubbles appearing near the bottom of my glass. There was a small white head, but after a minute it is only some sparse bubbles. Loads of tropical fruit, with some orange and grapefruit appearing in the nose. Quite a nice aroma. Taste is a bit lighter with more caramel coming forward. Just doesn’t taste as nice at it smells. Nice, lighter body. Pretty tasty IPA that could be drank almost any time.

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.

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.
