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: 4.5

Appearance – This is a cloudy, brooding, faded orange in color with a nice head. The foam bubbles are unusually large.

Smell – The hop aroma is complex with some citrusy pine and a bit of grapefruit.

Taste – The hops thankfully come over well at the taste. There’s more grapefruit here and a little bit of orange sweetness. The malt is very light.

Mouthfeel – This is medium-bodied with some surprising carbonation for the style. It’s not bitter at all and actually more balanced than it smells.

Drinkability – They managed to make this beer extremely hoppy without being very bitter so it goes down quite well. It’s rare to find a beer this hoppy that doesn’t wreck the palate.

Got this courtesy of Phelps - thanks Zach!

Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - A medium to deep amber with a one finger creamy head. Nice retention and adequate lacing throughout.

S - Very nice! Fruity aroma with grapefruit up front and some piney hops and trace of floral. Smell persisted until the end.

T - Taste similar to the smell. Hop bitterness mingled with fruitiness and a light malt presence. No pronounced lingering bitterness. Very good balance.

M- Fairly light with medium carbonation. I normally like a little more body with my IPA's but this one was just about right for this long hot summer.

O - I liked this brew. It would be a regular in the fridge if available locally, especially during hot weather. Recommend!
