4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Tempe brewery. First off, Hop Knot is a great IPA ... super flowery, light, sharp, and flavorful. Double Knot is up the same alley. Same hop bill, which is perfect (Simcoe in there?) ... great beer.
Flight taster at the Four Peaks brewery in Tempe, Arizona
Sight: Pale/light amber in color, medium foam, hazy
Smell: fragrant, hoppy but not as hoppy as northwest imperial India Pale ales
taste: very good, bitter, some sweetness
mouthfeel: very good carbonation, nice follow through, good finish
"Overall: very good beer
ok to repeat, but not to look for

On tap. Pours a clear amber-copper with a medium, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit and pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, biscuit and grapefruit with a dry, bitter, pine resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty. ifal78 (3) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2017 does not count
A solid DIPA, that gives you the extra hoppiness to the Hop Knot preserving the fruity-smelling, especially citrus and also a litlle pine. Presents an amber-orange body. A soft malty flavor that doesn’t compete with the main hoppy flavor! oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle from ibrew2or3. Pours almost amber in color. Taste is lots of malt. To much for my personal taste. Bitter finish. marcus (10560) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 25, 2017
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours dark gold with a clinging beige head and a toffee and citrus aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a fairly bitter finish.

12 oz. bottle, pours a clear copper amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out piney and resinous hops, and toasted caramel malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with resinous hops, some pine and caramely bready malt. I’m rather puzzled this has such high ratings, as the hops and malt balance is a bit off - fairly sweet, with some slightly clashing notes. Not very convinced by this one. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2017
Cheers to ibrew2or3 for the share. Pours a yellow-orange with an off white head. Nose is caramel, orange, lemon, citrus, slight honey, and some mild grass. Flavor hits with decent malt, some mild lemon, orange, caramel, and grassy bitterness. Medium in body and lingering sweet citrus in the finish. Akfan (27) - USA - FEB 18, 2017
Ok so this does not rate high as a IIPA. Sorry to say very little aroma, flavor was very bland. I felt the carbonation was a bit high for this style. I can think of many other IIPAs in this category I would rather drink.

Aroma of pine, taste is piney, earthy, resinous, dry aftertaste, glad to try. At brewery. slowrunner77 (12581) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Waaay better than any other 4p beer tried. Fresh hoppy aroma and flavor. Some pine, spice and mango (?)
Thick n chewy.
