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.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(on tap at Scottsdale location). Copper liquid with small white head. Aromas of toasted nuts and citrus. Dominant bitterness but nicely balanced by underlying sweetness. Long bitter finish. A good, solid IPA.

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.

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.

Medium yellow with lots of lace. Some hop aroma. Enjoyed at Scottsdale location, brewed of course at Tempe. The bitterness did not work for me, it was not too drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub
Light amber color; creamy head. Simple aroma, light but nice hops. Creamy and smooth body, some malt and toffee flavor, but quite buttery, diacetyl. Correct bitterness, lightly citrusy. Not bad, but I prefer the American IPA to this English IPA

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Tempe. Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is dominated by citrusy hops. Flavor is overwhelming in your face hops and some light malt. No balance here what so ever.
