Hoppy Knight is brewed to celebrate Twisted Pine’s 15th Anniversary and is named after our founder and craft beer industry legend Gordon Knight. This India-style Black Ale tastes like a big classic IPA but pours dark as night. A very subtle sweetness and roastiness is provided by the carafa malt, but this beer is really all about the hops(85 IBUs). Hoppy Knight is heavily dry-hopped to provide a wonderful floral aroma. Citrusy grapefruit flavors hit you up front and linger through to the finish.

22 oz. bottle from Wine 101, Wake Forest, NC. Pours dark brown to almost black with a ridiculously frothy khaki head. Aroma is mostly cocoa and roasted coffee with faint floral hops. Taste is citrusy hops with a healthy chocolatey malt backbone. Unfortunately the huge frothy head really gets in the way of the taste and palate. While certainly not a bad beer, this is not one of the better representations of this style.

On tap @ Twisted Pine. Black pour with a khaki head. Pine, grass, and orange on the nose. A touch of grapefruit peel, roast, and coffee. Not bad. Flavor is quite bitter. Tons of orange and grapefruit peel, pine, and grass. Strong roast character, some coffee, a light malt sweetness, and a bit of water.

BeerViking (2752) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a lovely fine beige crema. Black treacle and citrus aromas, then a rich and complex body with roast malt and treacle at the front, then citrus emerging along with hints of pine resin, and finishing burnt bitter and roast malt plus lingering citrus. Delicious.

hayduke (3503) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
This bottle was sent to me courtesy of Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Pours near black with a foamy tan head. Nose of roasted malts, earth along with pine and citrus hops. Medium to full in body. Smooth mouth feel . Flavor is roasted malts, with the pine and citrus hops and it moves to a light bitter finish Not as big as some black IPAs but exceptionally drinkable. Good stuff.

Braudog (5927) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle. Emerged with a bit of an initially over-the-top fizzy burst, settling into a well-topped dark brown and fully opaque brew. I don’t get a lot of aroma off this; and the beer drinks with an exceptionally assertive bitter sting, woven into a chalky, rustic porter-like base. (#5196, 8/14/2013)

22oz bottle picked up at Wilburs
Dark brown with a big frothy beige head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of caramel, milk chocolate and pine. Taste of roasted malts, ashy, chocolate and pine
Nice, mellow. This got better as it warmed up.

Aroma carmel, can't smell hops. Taste nice hop taste, with some dry and sweet malts. I thought the feel was a little thin though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Almost black with a beige layer that is less than a finger. Chocolate and citrus hop notes in the aroma. The flavor is distinctively black IPA. Roasted flavors with citrus bitterness and spice. Grapefruit is big, biting, and bitter. This is definitely to style and is a nice one. Big flavor with a bitter bite and a long lasting spice after taste. Some pine flavors. It finishes a little thin.
