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.

Really fantastic brew. The aroma is super hoppy. It’s like taking a handful of hops and smelling them. Pours a golden red brown with a nice off white head. The taste is quite tame for a DIPA. It’s pretty sweet. Theres a pinch of dryness and then it mellows out to a smooth finish that isn’t offending at all. Nice body. Lots a malts. Really great. I think they balanced this so well you’d just never guess it’s 10% or a DIPA. Oh yeah...not hot whatsoever. great job.

Super clean aroma - cut grass, sauvignon blanc grapes, tangerine - just dynamite. Flavor is equally dank - very light sweetness with tropical fruits and a good herbal bitterness in the finish. Great stuff.

650ml bottle poured into my Narke glass...A super dark ipa, dark copper bordering on a shiney brown, semi clear. A huge tope head of about five fingers emerges77, a fluffy head that looks great. The retention is good and lacing is awesome, literally coats the whole glass. Stunner...An equally impressive aroma that instantly reminds me of a stronger Daisy Cutter. Grassy hops with caramel, no hints of alcohol or pine typical in a DIPA, love it! A unique hint of vanilla on the finish...The taste matches the muted dipa notes on the aroma, but they take it a bit too far. I like that its not an alcoholic pine bomb, but then again it could use more flavor overall, just pretty light. The front is very malty, caramel, and again some vanilla. Pineapple shows off some great notes as well, especially as it warms. The finish is a very smooth pine resin taste and sensation, not overly bitter, doesn’t attack the senses...Mouthfeel is ok, lighter for a dipa, especially on the finish...Incredibly easy to drink for 10%. A huge and positive surprise. An easy to drink malty dipa that I really enjoyed.

Bomber shared by Eric. Pours a cloudy orange/ruby color with a medium tan creamy head. A wonderful Cali IIPA nose; fruity hops, pine, oranges- akin to Pliny. A very nice flavor; fresh oranges and light bitterness throughout, some malt background. Spicy, almost rye-like at times. Some heat, but not much. Smooth and very tasty. A nice creamy palate.

Shared bomber with SIL...thanks! Pours a beautiful orange...can smell the nose even before you pour it out....very citris / grapefruity...an excellent portent of what’s to come...taste is as an IPA / DIPA should be....bitter with lingering aftertaste...very enjoyable....if I ever stumble on one again I will definitely try another.

Clear red-orange hues with 2 finger rocky off white head..nice lacing. Smells are Sweet citrus, oranges and grapefruit, nice. some fruit punch sweetness and pineapple detected...fairly sweet overall. Taste of earthy hops with malt sweetness, some sweet fruits and citrus all mixed nicely...the 10%abv is very well hidden. Medium body and carbonation with mild to medium alcohol warmth. Nice hop bite and dry finish. A very good brew, nice balance of sweetness, fruits, citrus, hops and carbonation along with nice alcohol warmth. watch the10% abv it’s very well hidden.
