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.

Arizona IPA from a 12 ounce can. On to the beer:

This is toasted orange colored and topped with an inch of head , leaving several clumps of lace around the glass. The aroma has much appeal, quite vibrant and featuring notes of tangerine, cantaloupe, pine, orange, dusted in a little sugar. A lot of the momentum carries on to the taste, where the taste of cantaloupe, modest pine, orange, some caramel, and a slightly raw edge give Hop Knot an overall pleasant taste. It's medium bodied and smooth with the carbonation, which caps off an overall palatable IPA.
