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.

Can at cgarvieuks tasting. Orange amber pour, bubbly white head. Big fruit nose, mango, pineapple maybe. Tinned fruits? Very "green" hop character. Slight bready sweetness on the tongue with lots of citrus and some hints at butterscotch perhaps. Surprisingly soft hop finish. Really nice.

In can, thanks Franz. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Lovely resinous hop aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and peach. Flavours similar with a nice barley backbone. Chewy mouth-feel, mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Very nice hop and malt balance.

Thanks to fata2683 for this one in trade. Cheers, Keith! It looks like most of this pages ratings were from Keith sending this one around. Pours a nice mostly clear orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is citrus pith, tangerine, lemons and lemon rind, and a bit of pine with mild caramel. Flavor is a nice West Coast-esque hop punch. Grapefruit, lemon, and pine hit immediately followed by pine and citrus pith. Light malts all around and a nice bitter finish. A nice, light to medium body IPA.

A: The beer pours a slightly hazed orange color with a finger of white head. S: A decent bit of citrus to the aroma. Lots of grapefruit, which is nice, and a bit of tangerine. Fairly heavy on the pine and an almost perfumey floral note. Light malt aroma of bread. T: Somewhat sweet bready malt with a touch of toast and toffee. Grapefruit and orange peel with a moderate bitterness. Not a very intense hoppiness, but the flavors are good enough. M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: A decent IPA, but it didnt really blow me away.
