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.

Amber pour. Aroma has citrus and pine hops to go with some caramel malt. Flavor is hoppy, but not overly bitter. Offset by a good hit of caramel and honey. Not bad, not amazing.

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.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Can from the SS. Pours hazy orange with nice white head. Aroma has notes of pine, grass, whole hop notes, with some earth and even a touch of spice. Taste is nice, with balanced notes of some citrus and pine, earth and spice to round it out, with some bitterness but nothing crazy. Really well thought out and done, some nice depth but also easy to drink.

JorisPPattyn (8393) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2008
Draught. Marks for Appearance are an average, as beer was sampled in weak artificial light after dark. Very light citrussy-fruity nose, light vanilla. Restrained hopflavour, rather neutral, non-sweet malts, little touch of some (sweeter) spirit. Medium bodied, light creamy texture. Another good IPA, with a rather restrained hopcharacter.

Can thanks to Pat! Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue with a eggshell white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus and grass hop with a light bread backing. Flavor has a decent amount of citrus with a bit of flora and a grain backing.
