I love Cask beers!!! I always thought the Four Peaks IPA was average, but after a little cask conditioning it smoothes out considerabely. Deep Amber color, dense rich off white head. Hoppy aroma, slightly sweet start, nice medium body, bitter/hop finish. Silky mouthfeel.

Dangerous to the parched lip.
Arizona day drinking may produce a hazy outcome. Cheers!

I disagree with the description but I love this IPA. Not especially bitter. What I love here is the strong citrus aroma and taste and the slight sweetness in flavor. Good stuff.

A good IPA but I'm getting a little tired of the standard use of cascade hops. Not as good as their latest beers but a good standby at the brewery.

In tap at Nobel Hops, Oro Valley AZ. Nice pour with a thin head. Very tasty and crisp. Refreshing with a bite at the back end. Good for you Tempe!

This turned out to be my favorite of the day at Four Peaks.
Golden yellow with a good head and lacing.
Nice crisp hop and malt aroma.
Flavor was hopy but not over the top. Citrus on the finish.
This is a good easy drinking I P A and I ended up having two more pints for the road.

Cask offering: aroma is very fruity and citric. appearance of small particles, golden, dense haed that is creamy and sticky. hop burp from the extensive dry hopping of some hybrid-hop i had never heard of before this. are those cascades that make this thing so chewy?
Keg: Chunky froth, dense and sticky. aroma is buttery and toasted malt. flavors of passion fruit, tart pineapple, and a nice bitterness. Keg rating 3.7

Draft at brewery. I thought this was fantastic. My previous experiences with Hop Knot were not charming, but this was really great. Nice citrus, light floral and very clean and bright hop flavors like a tart harvest ale. I was very impressed, and this wasnt even my first beer of the night. This batch is SOLID.

On cask at the brewery. A nice slightly hazy IPA (I think the one I had a different name). Floral/piney noce, big grapefruit. Amber. Great head retention and lacing. Fruity and enjoyable...so good I bought a growler.

My Four Peaks Favorite. For the true hops fan. Complex and bitter, not suited for a beginner.
