Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Gueuzedude on 09-23-2003

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.

Golden-amber-orange in color with a fairly white head. First pint or two from the growler was firm and sticky after which it was a pretty runofthemill. Thin cap of foam. Spotty lacing. Nice hoppy aroma, citric and a little floral, but a little too clean for me to love it. Malts are pale and offer only a little hint of sweetness. From the growler, the hopping throws out about three seconds of pop before fading into the pale malt - slightly cloying - sweetness. Funny phrase: too balanced. This is definitely a hop-sided beer, but I still don't feel like I love how the malts come in and take over the finish. Body is well on the light side. Drinkability is of course rock solid.

On tap at the Tempe brewpub, 4oz sample.

App - gold-amber, clear, head ok.
Aroma - grassy hops. Really, too green.
Flavor - the flavor redeems the aroma. There is sweet malt, but also a ton of hop flavor and solid bitterness. I wish the aroma was this well integrated.
Mouthfeel - medium bodied, smooth with a bit of astringency from all those hops!
Overall -- would be great without that grassy, green aroma.

Enjoyed this 12 oz can out of a large snifter glass

A: Pours and orangish hue with a decent sized white head that dissipates quickly leaving a good trail.

S: Malty and hoppy aroma mixed well together.

T: Nicely balanced mix between the bitter hops and sweet malt.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Delicious IPA - could have been a little bit more hopped up.
