COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hop Knot IPA is made only from American malt and lots of American hops, which produce a big, broad-shouldered, hoppy beer backed up by a character as warm as, well, Mom and apple pie… Hop Knot IPA get its peculiar name from the weaving of four different hops added at four separate times during the brewing process. Including our cavernous hop-back, which gets so stuffed with whole leaf hops that we feel genuine guilt for its excess. Hop Knot is an ale that is to be enjoyed with friends, spicy food or any time you need a good hop fix without the harsh bitterness. We hope you enjoy this pioneering beer made in the bold spirit of Americans everywhere.

Great stuff, both on tap and in the can. Obviously the hops are prominent, but not overpowering; mouthfeel is very clean. If you like hops, chances are you’ll enjoy this!

Had this so many times, can’t believe it took this long to rate. Wonderfully citrus with a little bitterness and just a beautiful IPA. One of my favorites and probably near the top of local beers in AZ.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 Have had this on tap, this rate is from the can. Pale to look at. Big bold pine and grapefruit aromas. Fruity hop flavors are right up front, followed by bitterness mixed with a little semi sweet malt. Dry and mildy bitter finish. The beer leans more toward the hop. Slightly on the thin side.

Great nose of mostly pine, some malt as well. Huge flavors of piney, bitter hops. Like my friend said- it tastes like the forest. Good maltiness to balance the hops. One of the best beers from AZ, imo.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2012
From the can. Clear golden color with a big white head that fades down to a sliver. Nose is loaded with citrus fruits; grapefruit, pineapple. The flavor is tons more of the same, lots of juicy citrus fruit and only a touch of bitterness. Just what a sessionable West-coast IPA should be.

4.1
Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 20, 2012
12 ounce can. This is a great IPA. As soon as I cracked the can I was hit with a huge citrus hop bouquet. The flavor has a firm malt backbone allowing for the big hop profile. This is a fanatic IPA.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours a golden orange. Aromas of pineapple, slight mango, citrus, malt, slight pine and grapefruit. Initial flavor is sweet with a nice bitter backbone. Flavors of tropical fruit, grapefruit rind bitterness, a nice hop spiciness, typical malt background and a little touch of resin/pine. Mouthfeel is oily and a tad sticky. Overall a pretty solid IPA. Worth a try.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2012
Orange nose. This one goes both ways from the start, moving from a nice malt directly to both a light bitterness and orange overtones. I’d say its bipolar, but going both ways makes it sound more interesting.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - APR 9, 2012
Can. Pours a nice golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple and sweet malt. Flavor has lots of dank grapefruit and an almost cat pee flavor which makes me think of Simcoe hops, again I get orange, tangerine and pineapple with some sweet malt. The body is on the lighter side of medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty IPA, but feels a little more like an APA since it isn’t as hoppy as most IPAs.

dwm1034 (786) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Draft..phoenix. Pours rich, foggy orange...mild hoppy nose and initial flavor ... Has more an APA taste and feel than an IPA....smooth and tasty
