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. 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 I’d like, nor as bitter. Decent.

Sample at the Taps brewfest. Rating# 23. Light gold pour with a white head. Big tropical fruit in the aroma and flavor, almost like a fruity gum, tremendous dipa. (1331)

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!

LtDan (1805) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
On tap at Naja’s Place - Redondo Beach,CA

Appearance: Pours a yellow gold with a nice amber tint. On this pour, I only got a thin white film for head.

Aroma: Cat pee (simcoe?) and peaches.

Taste: Peach, piney with a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Sticky with modest carbonation.

Overall: Delicious fruity bitter awesomeness. Bootleggers is on a roll!
