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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Draught @ Papago<P> The beer as it sets in the mug a clear gold color, the head semi-creamy and bright white in color, lace forms a fine curtain upon the glass. Slight floral aroma but sweet malt dominates this fresh and clean nose, sweet and rich malt start, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish is fair to middling in its acidity, hops are pleasant in their spicy presence, dry and lingering aftertaste, a pleasant enough brew, drinkable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden color with tanacious white had that laced the glass. The hop nose and flavor is distinctly grapefruit with a touch of spruce. Bitter from start to finish, but not overly so. Bit of a grainy aftertaste.

tap. A nice solid offering but doesn’t have anything that sets it apart from other ipa’s. Good enough that I would have again though.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Draft - clear golden body with a beige head. Big grass hop nose. A touch of pine hops as well. Big hop flavor! Could use a touch more malt to balance. Good!

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Scottsdale location. The beer was 2 days old and cask-conditioned. Pours to a filtered bright amber body with a really dense, creamy white head. The aroma is grassy, weeds. The flavor is nicely malty with a bitter grassy hop. The palate is bitter, clean, and easy drinking. Medium bodied but goes down smooth. A spicy hop kick on the finish.

Draft, sampled many a time, many a year at the Four Peaks Brew Pub. I used to think it was an excellent IPA, now I find it to be barely an above average IPA. Easily their best and the best brew out of the Phoenix/Tempe area, but the level of a very good IPA has been raised. Yes, it could be hoppier, has a mellow fruity flavor and a mild kick.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - SEP 30, 2008
draft at the brewpub. Best of the lot, but that’s not saying much. Mildly Hoppy. Nice, but nothing special.

bblack99 (526) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Draught at the brewery in Tempe. Poured a clear copper with almost no head. Kind of generic as IPAs go, hoppy as expected, with its only distinguishing characteristic being a great brightness. Relatively low ABV but what little alcohol exists is well-hidden.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, 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.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of hellbilly! Excellent trader! Pours a pale golden amber hue, well hazed, with moderate bright white head that laces fairly well. Aromas are a nice hoppiness, citrusy notes mixed with tropical fruits, pale and carmel malt sweetness balances with decent florals. Initial is medium bodied, a good ipa, with citrus fruits and good tropical notes on display, pale and carmel malt sweetness balances. A bit of a boring finish, with decent bitterness. Aftertaste leaves bitterness and mango and tropical fruit notes. Solid IPA, but I’m a sucker for tropical fruit hop feels. Good pale malt, ok grapefruit citrus. A very sessionable, lighter IPA that packs some good flavors. Nothing too sweet, nothing to bitter. Very nice. Woot!
