Four Peaks Brewing Hop Knot

What the brewers say

“Inhale deeply and enter Nirvana. Yup, that’s seven different hops varieties all dancing harmoniously in your nose. Now just wait and see what happens when you take your first sip—pure floral, citrusy, hoppy goodness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Orange and lemon dominate with a touch of strawberry, melon, mango, guava, passion fruit, and a little mint. Low-medium intensity aroma. Some malt sweetness in the background, but the malt is hiding behind the hops.”

Flavor: “Good balance for style, though a the tropical fruit sweetness is a touch sweet for my taste until the very finish. Hops are same as on the aroma yielding a slightly sweet fruitiness in concert with significant bitterness to balance. Carb is a bit low, which makes the beer feel a bit heavy.”

Overall: “Aside from the low carb kind of dragging the aroma and lightness of body down, this is a pretty solid WCIPA. Hops are smooth and continuous without any rough edges. It’s rich and filling—like a German stollen bread with fruit and frosting.”
