COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 $4.99, 22oz bottle. Inky black pour with a big, tan head and lots of lacing. Roasty and malty, but not as hoppy as expected. Enjoyable but not a repeat for me.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
22oz $7 Dark brown, almost black, looks about standard. Smells like an IPA, not bad, kind of piney and citrus. The taste is not as hoppy as the smell, I was disappointed a little. It tasted like a brown ale and I just really wished the hops from the smell were present in the flavor. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-29-2010 21:45:45
