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.

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 didn’t balance out the caramel syrup and red fruit. Decent, but enormously forgettable. Next!

Pours a cream colored head. Nice and Lacey. Floral nose with hints of citrus. Nice mouth feel. Over all a very nice double ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Bootlegger’s. Wonderful floral aroma, creamy white head. Taste is citrus, grapefruit, pine, a little sugary, super smooth with a little bitterness. One of the best!

22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Emeline. Full disclosure. I had this beer after having two of the best hoppy beers of my life from Hill Farmstead. Compared to those, this was complacent, malty, clean, and more Barleywine-like. Yes, there were hops. I forgot them. Yes, there was malt. It was fine. I realize that rating this or comparing this is akin to comparing coffee to tea, but I can’t help it. This review just underscores the incredible nature of Hill Farmstead’s hop work (sorry, Bootleggers).

PhillyCraft (5609) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2012
UPDATED: APR 7, 2012 Bottle in Californee. Poured a copper color with creamy medium head. Decent lacing. Aromas of strong pine, mango, kiwi, lemons, and rye. Taste was a hop explosion of citrus notes and tang. Other smaller notes of caramel sundae, and resin. Very sticky and awesome IPA.

Nice flowery citrus smell that pours deep copper with a creamy head. Balanced hop and alcohol through the entire palate moving to a lingering finish that just hangs there. Worth the hype to pick it up.

On Tap. A nice sweet malty IPA with citrus, mango and some pine flavors. Not much bitterness here, just strong citrus and floral hops.
