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.

Poured from a can with no date code into a pint glass.

A: Pours a golden color with a big off-white head that settles. There is a lot of thin sticky lacing.

S: Big smell of citrus. Grapefruit big time, pine and orange.

T: Mostly grapefruit. there is a little orange and light malt.

M: A little thin but very drinkable.

O; I like it. It is easy to drink and if it was on tap; I would have it.

a golden orange pour, 2 fingers of fluffy white head, nice lacing!
smells mainly of hops with a citrus background.. orange, grapefruit, fresh cut grass.
taste is very citrus oriented, with herbal notes, and earth notes. slight spicyness towards the finish, very nice.
medium body, medium crbonation, creamy mouthfeel.
this is a really refreshing ipa.. definitely worth trying - got mine as a throw in from a trade and i'm thankful for it!

poured a nice clear golden with a thick white head.

The smell is lightly hoppy with a touch of lemon.

the flavor is mild with a lightly bready malt backbone. the hop flavors are mild for an IPA. The bitterness is very low for IPA as well. Drinks more like a nicely hopped blonde.

Nice smooth and creamy mouth feel.

Good but doesn't really feel like IPA.
