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: FEB 15, 2015 Bomber poured into shaker pint. Orange amber body with two finger plus head that lasts. Lots of sticky lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is of orange peel, pine resin, sweet malts, and citrus juice. Taste is bitter citrus peel and pine balanced with sweet candied grapefruit and a caramel malt ribbon. Medium-full body, sticky, resinous texture, moderate carbonation, bitter finish.

Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you heatwaves! Pours clear deep amber with a rather big frothy and bubbly reddish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of spotty and sticky lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is slightly malty, slightly fruity and tiny earthy with dark bread, grapefruit juice, pine needles, freshly cut grass, moist soil, resinous wood, alcohol, biscuits, mango, overripe pineapple, star fruit, brown sugar sweetened black currant tea and caramel. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity, herbal, earthy and malty with caramel, biscuits, grapefruit juice, oily pine cones, freshly cut grass, resinous wood, grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest, alcohol, pineapple, mango, peach skins, brown sugar,black currant tea and hints of caramelized apples. Mouthfeel is round, slightly sticky sweet, slightly boozy, slightly oily bitter, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and fruity with caramel, biscuits, grapefruit rinds, orange zest, moist grass, pine needles, resinous wood, mango, star fruit, alcohol, sweetened black currant tea and alcohol. Too sweet for me but fresh and quite good...

kaser (3979) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Draft pour at American ales in Santa Barbara. Orange with fluffy white head. Cotton candy and cherry jolly rancher taste. Candy. Huge beer but delicious. Smells like a pine tree met a grapefruit. Had this brewers pale ale earlier and hated it. This totally redeemed them

Bottle @ The WWGT2D? Tasting. Thanks, GRG! The pour’s really deep cherry amber with a tight white head. Pretty sweet, ballsy nose. Melon and strawberry. Fruit by the foot. Grass and tropical undergrowth. The taste is hugely sweet. Ribbon candy, caramel. Red berries. Quite sugary and bitter on the finish. Full body, big. Overall, outsized in every way.

Damnation (6) - Rohnert Park, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014 does not count
On tap @ Beercraft (rp). Appearance was different than most DIPA’s, Dark Amber color. Taste was fruity/citrusy with a bitter finish. Could definitely throw a few of these back. Really smooth.

Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Pours a clear amber color with a small foamy head that sits and lingers nicely. Nice musty hop aroma of tropical fruit, citrus, apples, pine, grass and caramel. Taste is actually more sweet than bitter. Musty grass, tropical fruit, caramel apple, pine. Nice spicy hop kick in the finish. Great oily mouthfeel. Awesome stuff.
