Clear amber with thin white head. Lovely aromas of citrus, piney hops, some pineapple. I’m getting a mouthful of hops,tropical fruits. Light to medium body. A delicious west-coast style iPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tröegs Hop Knife Harvest Ale has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and fairly heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of pine resin hop oils, some apricot (?), and mellow malt. Taste is of those elements, with pronounced and impressive oily hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Hop Knife finishes bitter and on the dry side. RTJ

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle on the deck. Pours clear amber with off white foamy head. Slight grapefruit and earthy nose. Medium bodied. Real dry earth herbal hop profile. Fall beer for sure but for loving hops, this isn't dank or fruity enough for me. Too much earth to be drinking multiples of

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE: August 18, 2016... OCCASION: Toasting the last night of Camp--six years of solid summers with the boys... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... medium amber body, crystal clear, with a soft yet lively effervescence... a creamy, slightly, nearly two-finger off-white head that creates a cloud-like horizon... strong, alluring pine and resin with the grapefruit, stone fruit and spiciness expected of an IPA.... full-bodied, with a crunchy bite at the teeth... smooth, almost creamy through the mouth... the finish is slightly sweet, with lasting impact of resin... among the flavors include resin, pine, spicy notes of pepper and paprika, powerful citrus--orange peel, grapefruit, and mango--and a reasonable amount of caramel malts that balance the beer with sensibility... overall, another Troegs victory, with a pile of hops sitting pretty under only 6.2% ABV... drinkable, rewarding and robust...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured out of a 12oz can, which states a 6.2% ABV (not 6.8%). Professional, clean, filtered look with a thin white head and a light amber color. Little to no lacing is present. Nose has a nice mix of citrus hop and pine, but subtle. It’s refreshing, and it is not "heavy" like a Victory Hop Devil. Troegs masterfully hits the segue to the fall. I’m fading from the summer session IPAs, but I don’t want to drink a fest beer at this time either (the heat wave in NJ has lasted for several days at scorching levels; not ready for pumpkin beer, coffee imperial porters, etc). As I recall, this brew will not last in stores for long, so grab it if you see it. Cheers!

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, tangy dank hops, grassy hops, grapefruit. Flavor of tropical fruits, hop oils, bitter hops, grassy hops. Very hoppy, fruity, dank. Perhaps even something of a palate wrecker.
