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.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Bottle poured into my Stone IPA glass. I have tasted this before on tap at Najas, and that was awhile ago and after sampling tons of IPAís, so I didnít think it appropriate to rate that time. Now, Iím all alone on a HOT day and opened the bomber of it. I must say, this is the best looking beer Iíve seen in awhile. Dark red/orange nicely carbonated head. The aroma is perhaps the least enticing aspect, its not bad at all , it just does not have much nose. Flavors are HUGE and fantastic balance of sweet malt and hoppy bite. For a 10% beer, I canít taste anything "hot", it is simply balanced. Iím REALLY impressed with this beer, especially since the bomber was 3.99~!!! I will buy more, yes....I will buy more....which means I will drink more. Great job on a very overly done style, yet my favorite style nonetheless. Re-rated 12/16/11: From 4.1 to 4.8 Bomber from fresh batch that hit distribution this week. This beer is INSANE- Mango and Pineapple on the nose; utterly delicious tastes of peaches and mangos; its a damn frikkin fruit smoothie of a 10% DIPA- the finish and body are utterly outstanding. I have 2 more bombers to enjoy while fresh this coming week and I may have to go find/buy more. Also, last year I paid 3.99 this time I paid 7.99 which its worth.

In my opinion, this beer is highly under rated on RB. If you are a real hop head and a lover of huge IPAís this is a great beer. It is bold from the word go and leaves you wanting more - left me wanting more anyway.

bottle. orangish pour with big white head. full of floral hops, perfume, citrus, caramel and herbal tea. really fresh and great if not for the slight hint of diacetyl/butter popcorn noted as it warmed. was well--masked initially, but came out in the finish...good nonetheless

GABF 2010, Big IpA that lived up to expectations/ previous ratings. Big Big bitterness in both aroma & flavor. Perhaps a slight too much malt sweetness but Solid DIPA

Had on tap at Bootleggers Brewery. Pours clear orange yellow with nice carbonation and lacing. Very heavy grapefruit/citrus hop aroma with slight malts. Flavor is also heavily hopped with amazing bitter finish and a good balance between hops and malts. A very enjoyable Double IPA with the 10% hidden very well. One of my favorites on the night at Bootleggers.

Growler fill from t0rin0. Pours a reddish amber with offwhite/yellowy head. Not my favorite appearance for an IIPA. Get some caramalt in the nose, along with some catty notes, citrus. On taste, softly bitter, a bit boozy and a bit sweet. Not as dry as Iíd like, nor as bitter. Decent.

On tap at the brewery, finally!!! Pours with a huge tan head over a flowery orange body. Aroma is huge, floral, dank, weed, citrus, dry and herbal. Taste is some sweet crystal, but finishes dry as any good DIPA will. Very nicely balanced. Tastes like it uses a hop bursting technique. Lots of floral, herbal and grapefruit hops with a restrained bitterness. Dry and excellent!
