COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knuckle Sandwich DIPA is an American Style Double IPA. This is a beer that truly lives up to its name! Brewed with copious amounts of North American hops, this Double IPA has a colossal hop profile and an aggressive aroma. Helping round out the floral and citrus notes is a huge malt backbone that provides a great mouth feel to this heavyweight hitter.

Big thanks to mrmiles for this extra bomber A: Pours a deep garnet color with a small fluffy white cap. The head and the retention is decent given the ABV S: If I could give this a 6 I would...exactly what I love in IPAs. Lots of sweet pineapple juice, mango, blood orange, apricot, pear, and other orchard fruits. So damn awesome. Malts do a lot in terms of balancing, also adding some caramel sweetness. T: Sweet tropical fruit...whoever mentioned candied pineapple hit the nail on the head. Also candied mango. Lots of residual sugar on top of sweet tropical/citrus fruit, on top of sweet caramel from the malts. Alcohol is very warming, but not really a problem. Well balanced- sweetness with hops. MF/D: Viscous, sweet, and smooth. Easy to drink despite the ABV. Do not recommend taking a bomber down by yourself...which is what I am attempting, hence my 4 rating for drink Notes: Really solid offering from a brewery Iíve never tried or even heard of...But definitely will be ISO their beers in the future.

Sarlacc83 (1220) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 14, 2012
22oz bottle courtesy of Hophead84. Thanks! A: Red shaded towards plum purple.1/2" head. Decent legs. N: Perfect blend of fruit, pine and malt. Pineapple, mango, pine, earth floor, caramel/toffee. Lots of the tropical fruits really bumps this up for me. T: Lots and lots of caramel and pineapple. Mango. Very sweet, but balanced out with a moderate pine and earth floor. M: Very full. Semi dry. Alcohol is well hidden. O: I look forward to having this every time, and Iím not disappointed.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
deep dark orange. Perfect one finger of thick head. Nose is predominantly grapefruit, with a bit of spicy hop notes and pine. Itís the grapefruit thatís dominant though. Medium body. Decent malt character, but this one is all about the hops. First two thirds on the palette is fruity hop flavor, grapefruit rind and maybe peach. Back third is pleasant bittering. A great beer

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Shared at the UFC tasting, small pour into my Deschutes snifter. I donít remember who brought this, but thanks! A: Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head that recedes to a film ring. S: Nice pine and some resin with a lingering fruity ester over a nice solid light caramel malt. T: Slight sweet fruit with a nice resin-like quality with a very subtle pine in the background. Again the malty backbone is integrated nicely. M: Medium bodied with a nice malty flavor that lingers with some bitterness. Nicely carbonated as well. O: Not my favorite DIPA, but it was definitely a want for me and Iím glad I got to try it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-09-2011

Huhzubendah (2832) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks! A: Dark orange hue with a half inch of head and good lacing upon the glass. S: Aroma is a bit odd and hard to describe. Hop scents are also present. T: Bold and hop forward, but again, slightly off-putting and astringent. M: Medium bodied and palate coating, with a slight metallic aftertaste. D: This beer was mediocre. I found both the aroma and flavor to be a bit off throughout. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-26-2010

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle at home, thanks to Doodler. Gusher bottle. Pours hazy deep orange/grapefruit juice in colour, darker than I am used to from an IIPA lately. Head is very thick and moderately long lived, lacing is spotty to poor. Nose is thick caramel, some basic grapefruit hops. Flavours are very heavy, very syrupy, and while nicely bitter, just didnít balance out the caramel syrup and red fruit. Decent, but enormously forgettable. Next!
