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 growler (filled at Whole Foods) into a larger tulip glass...

I've had this from a can previously and found it to be an easy-to-drink IPA, not complex, but very well balanced and smooth with a lemony-citrus aftertaste.

tonight, I am compaing it with some other IPA's on tap at Whole Foods: Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Mother Road Lost Highway Black IPA, Dragoon IPA, and the standard for double IPA's Dogfish Head 90. I will also pour a Stone IPA from a bottle before the evening is over...

color and appearance are a dark honey yellow with a head that settles down to about 1/4"

smell is nice, not overwhelming. a blend of the hops used: Cascade, Glacier, Magnum, Liberty, Simcoe

taste is similarly balanced, malt and hops do not overwhelm each other, but complement and result in a very pleasant mouthfeel...

In my search for the perfect IPA, this one is definitely in the top 20, and maybe in the top 10!

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.

Serving type: can
