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.

Few things make me happier than the moment I crack a can of beer, hear the hiss and smell the powerful perfume of Humulus lupulus. This one here, doesnt disappoint on this front. Perhaps its the novelty of the can, perhaps it was the setting to which this was consumed, but everything worked and myself and a few belly busting friends downed a 12er of this in record time. It was delicious. I got wrecked. The rest is history.

This beer has a dark golden color and a weak head. Its definately light for my standards. Although the taste is complex and hoppy, its easy going down. Its definately the kind of beer that can be enjoyed all day... can after can after can!

Ibrew2or3 (8458) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Tempe Four Peaks with clear deep gold body and off white head. The aroma offers up a nice load of grapefruit like citrus hops as well as mild sweet malts and a sense of buttered popcorn. The taste is pleasingly hop forward with very bitter grapefruit hops and orange rind and these are only mildly sweetened by a thin layer of malts and a sense of butterscotch. To midway the malt sweetness fades leaving the full flavored bitter citrus hops completely exposed to the elements and your palate. Is the buttered popcorn a sign the yeast is getting tired?

On tap at Four Peaks, I was pitifully only able to drink one brew- sorry guys I was roughed up. Pours a clear cooper with a medium white head. A nice pine and citrus nose. The flavor is very nice; sweet citrus, biscuit, lots of pine. Not overly bitter.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2015 Draft at the brewpub. Interesting light color (IPAs seem to be getting darker and darker). Quite a big citric hoppy bite here. Nice in such a light package (light bodied, too). (#4089, from notes in Jan 2011)
