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.

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.

Thanks to sholland119 for sharing a bottle of this one.

A-Brilliant orange kissed golden yellow with a thin white head and a little bit of lacing.

S-Tart citrus of grapefruit, tangerine and orange. Low amount of malt sweetness detected.

T-Potent citric acid punch with a boat load of citrus fruit flavour. Most of it a bland of grapefruit and orange. Notes of softer fruit flavours in the background such as apple and peach. A complimenting malt sweetness in the finish.

M-Medium body with a pleasant, long lasting bitterness.

D-A totally solid and nearly sessionable west coast IPA. All the citrus hoppy goodness that I crave with a minimal amount of malt sweetness....YUMMY!
