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.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Draft in a taster at the Wilson Taproom. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Notes of caramel and toasted malts, citrusy and piney hops, some grass - very basic, straightforward, fresh IPA. Which works. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, fresh mouthfeel. Good IPA.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Tempe Four Peaks with clear deep gold body and off white head. The aroma offers up a nice load of grapefruit like citrus hops as well as mild sweet malts and a sense of buttered popcorn. The taste is pleasingly hop forward with very bitter grapefruit hops and orange rind and these are only mildly sweetened by a thin layer of malts and a sense of butterscotch. To midway the malt sweetness fades leaving the full flavored bitter citrus hops completely exposed to the elements and your palate. Is the buttered popcorn a sign the yeast is getting tired?

On tap at Four Peaks, I was pitifully only able to drink one brew- sorry guys I was roughed up. Pours a clear cooper with a medium white head. A nice pine and citrus nose. The flavor is very nice; sweet citrus, biscuit, lots of pine. Not overly bitter.

Can. Didn’t seem overly fresh. Much more subdued than the obviously fresher impy. Just an average brew as drank.

12 oz. bottle from BOLTZ7555. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head; lasting. The aroma had some nice citrus, grapefruit hops and some resin. Mild caramel sweetness with a touch of honey. The flavor has a lightly toasted caramel base with some citrus hoppiness. Hints of resin and honey. This has decent flavor, but only mild bitterness.
