Notes/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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a straw gold in color, very clear, a nice sized bright white head rests atop before slowly descending, lacing nicely in the process. Aroma is a nice mix of some citrus and a hint of sweetness from the malts. The strongest singular scent is of apricots which comes thru quite well in this bottle. Also some peaches, some tangelo, and grapefruit too, but like a nice sweet tree-ripened fruit. Taste follows with a good citrus hop up front, apricot comes thru in the taste as well, mid-taste. Some peppery flavor kicks in in the finish before a good sized drying and slightly puckery bitterness. Light to medium in body, the carbonation is light, and on the medium to soft side, feel wise. The pepperiness in the taste is present but light in the feel, and the bitterness pulls the moisture from the palate in the finish. Very good ipa, great aroma and nice bitterness, very drinkable. Thanks Dana for the opportunity.

3.83/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a golden amber with yellow hues. A creamy head of bone white foam that falls quickly and leaves spots of lace. beautiful clarity and only a few bubbles lazily wafting to the top. Nose is malty with a little soft sweetness and a bit of cracker. Sweet lemon peel and earthy grapefruit peel. Some sweet grass and a bit of pine that also has a sweet little backing to it. A bit of simcoe spice that I would call tangy. The taste is wonderful. Fruity and juicy. A bit of lemon, grapefruit and a nice little orange that is fresh and lightly sweet. The pine is soft and sweet on the palate and so is the malt. The malt is more crisp than it smelled on the nose and it comes right up to the definition of west coast style mouthfeel before it takes just one shy step over. The hops give an herbal quality at the back palate that is broad and leafy. This one finishes dry and with a lovely bitter that does not start on the mid palate. It starts at the swallow and then resonates back leaving you with a surprise bit of crisp cracker and some of that lovely light orange.

2.96/5  rDev -26.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Bright reddish-orange with a full, bubbly, off-white head that tops out right above the rim and pushes its pungent aroma into the room. Closer inspection reveals citrus (grapefruit and lemon) and some rind. Taste is more subdued that the aroma would indicate. Barely hoppy and a bit chalky. Some light fruits are noticed. Pretty flat in all domains. Tastes like it's well past any reasonable prime, but there's no decipherable freshness dating on the can. So be it.
