Going to be kegging 5 gallons of this tomorrow and bringing this to my fantasy football draft party on the 2nd. I can not wait to try this! If this is anywhere as tasty as my samples have been, it is going to be a hit! I'll report back fo sho.

Glad to see you updated the abv. I e been here 2 years now and im pretty sure it's always been 6.7% since I've been here. I also expected more than 1oz at 60min. I'll definitely be giving this a try.

Also, did someone here say 8th street is an esb? Pretty sure its an english pale ale.

Hop knot isn't very bitter, and magnum bitters well. It works out well.

Esb and English pale ale are synonymous

ESB is an extra special bitter, which is an English pale ale. There are three kinds of English pale ales or bitters: Ordinary, Best or special, and extra special. Four peaks calls 8th street a Best/Special bitter, but I think it's closer to an ESB

Bump. Did you ever brew this with 04/007? I really like this beer and plan on doing a similar IPA soon. Which is closer to the recipie 04/05?

I brewed an IPA with the same malt bill with WLP007, and the yeast character was very close.

04 would definitely get you closer than 05, but only if you can ferment it cool. I read in an interview that Four Peaks ferments this at like 17C which is 62.5F, which is pretty cool. Any of the drier, cleaner english ale yeasts would work well (WLP007, ringwood, dry witbread, S04, etc)

I have a ferment chamber so I can ferment at the required temperature. I am going to brew a similar recipe but using mostly amarillo/simcoe.

Have you had Lumberyard IPA (Flagstaff)? I had it at The Roosevelt and felt it was a "similar" beer to Hop Knot. I feel it is definately has simcoe in it also.

I was also at the DFH night at Popago, it was nice to finally have DFH120 on tap after many years of looking for it or missing it.

Ya, lumberyard is a really nice IPA. It has a bit more crystal (or at least higher-lovi crystal) and it's definitely firmly bittered. I'm not really sure which hops go into it. I get a lot of citrus from that beer, mixed with some floral notes and dank/onion/pine qualities. I'd guess they use a mix with some of the usual suspects: cascade, centennial, simcoe, columbus. I couldn't tell you exactly what they use though.

As I write this I am sitting in four peaks enjoying a hop knot. The beer is so good I quickly looked up a recipe here knowing I would want to make this myself.

Must say I really look forward to brewing this for myself.
