BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Four Peaks Brewing Company - 8th Street Brewery
Arizona, United States
fourpeaks.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Pours a light head, nice amber color. Smells of pretty pungent alcohol. Hoppy, tastes pleasantly spiced. Not particularly interesting but not a bad IPA by any means.

Nothing special - tastes like a typical midwest ipa. A slite piney nose, creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation, caramely malts, mild hop bittering on the finish. Easy to drink, not great, knot bad.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L - Pours a deep amber with a bit of orange haze, almost like iced tea. A foamy inch of white head dissipates and leaves a thin lacing and sparkles down the side of the glass. A nice looking IPA.

S - Citrus rind, tropical fruit, peach, melon, a Juicy Juice grape character, piney hops, vanilla. A lot going on in the nose.

T - Grapefruit, lemon, orange zest, caramel malt, bitter pine, with an astringent alcohol bite at the end. Fairly balanced but doesn't quite back up the variety of the nose.

F - Light-to-medium bodied, moderate tingly carbonation, slightly sticky on the tongue and finishes dry. Drinkable and compares to other American-style IPAs.

O - A nice example of the style from this Phoenix brewery. The astringent alcohol aftertaste brings it down a little in my book, but has enough character to make it a nice beer that wouldn't disappoint hop heads.

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Clear, deep golden color, with a two-finger white heal that left some spotty lacing as it settled to a thin ring. Light caramel malt on the nose and palate, balanced by some very nice citrusy hop character. Zesty bitterness, with a dry and slightly astringent finish. This is an excellent beer that I happened onto during a trip to Vegas. Pleasant surprise, and I would not hesitate to buy it again.

Clear brownish amber with plenty of foam in the tumbler. Spritzy but scratchy in the back of the throat. Hint of orange in the aroma plus some cardboard. I would say the hops are not the star attraction of this stuff.

Some odd flavors. Lemony, woody, a hint of butterscotch, with a pomegranate seed astringency to finish. Overall it's kind of dirty, though plenty gulpable if you're not paying much attention. From the 16 oz can purchased at Whole Foods in Tucson.
