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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Barely any nose, beautful dark golden color of a rich IPA. Fails to deliver on the palette. Seems a tad hot and disjointed. Used to think this good but not so much anymore. Not sure if its my changing tastes or a changed recipe. Either way not my fave anymore at the brew pub.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate resin hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. This beer also met my expectations.
