COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true English Indian Pale Ale. Our Raj IPA is created with a medium body and finishes dry and bitter – possibly even more so than your Uncle Sal after you broke his window when you were eleven. Our English IPA has an intense hop flavor and high hop bitterness. The lofty hop level was originally required so the ale would stay preserved and survive the voyage around Africa during the English occupation of India in the 18th century.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Tempe Four Peaks with clear copper body and white head. The mild, nay, faint aroma seems earthy and maybe spicy too. The taste is smooth with sweet malts and a touch of roasted malts rolling into spicy hops and a mild yeast. Toward midway it picks up an additional note of earthy hops. I love English style IPA that don’t embrace floral hoppiness. This one is right up my alley. I love the play between the spicy hops, earthy hops and malts.

Clear light amber/ ivory head. Mild caramel, pale malt aromas. Medium bodied with soft co2. Sweet honey pale malt flavors with some pine sap hops--ok

Travlr (13413) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Sample from draft. Caramel color, caramel aroma. Bland, thin flavor. Scant hops. Unremarkable.

Not the measure of perfection that the Hop Knot is, but Raj has been a Four Peaks Staple for years now. Any IPA lover should give this a try. Dark amber with a medium white head. Pine and Caramel notes with an IPA’s resin aftertase.
