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.

Thanks to Andrew for this brew, Cheer’s andrew! Bottled: unk A: Pours a blood orange ale with single finger light tan head. This dissipates relatively quickly leaving a medium sheet of the same. Little to no lacing. Excellent clarity. S: Lots of pine and resin on this one. Not as much citrus as anticipated. Some hints of cotton candy. ABV obvious here. Plenty sweet from the ABV and malt profile. Above average, but not great. T: Sweet, boozy, hot on the ABV again. Plenty of pineapple, pine, resin flavors. Medium to low bitterness on this one. M: Medium to high body with low carbonation. Long slick finish. O: Well done brew, but would take any of Alpine’s offerings over this any day of the week. ABV isn’t justified in the relative simplicity of the flavor profile. Serving type: bottle 04-13-2011

One of the best beers i have drank this year. Totally different flavor than any other double ipa’s out there. They just need to produce more every year.

11/23/13. 22oz bottle. Hazy amber pour with a small khaki head. Dank aroma, lots of citrus, almost acidic in a way, resiny. Nice bitterness, not overly bitter or hoppy, leans towards balance. Plenty of resin and citrus. Tasty.

Pretty decent dipa. Hazy copper colored. Floral on the nose. More malty in the taste with well balanced bitterness. Good, but not much to go wild about.

A low average dipa. Not much on the tongue and almost watery. But creamy watery. Taste is sweet like a noble hopped dipa. Eh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma is big dank hops, lots of fruit as well with orange, grapefruit, slight biscuit and bread, slight spice, but it is dominated by fruity hops. Taste is a nice mix of white fruit with peach, pineapple, nice orange and grapefruit into a slight mango note, hints of biscuit and bread, slight spice and grass, finishing bitter, dry. Very nice.

GREATNAME FOR A BEER esp a 10% one. On tap at the Provisions Market in Orange. Beautiful orange, amberish pour with minimal frothy head. Some sweet hops in the initial taste that fades into some delicious notes of pine and resin. It doesn’t hit you as much in the face as one might expect a beer called Knuckle Sandwich to do but is delicious and totally cloaks the 10%. Great beer would buy again

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out big time caramel malts, syrupy notes, and some resinous hops. Flavour is very much on the sweeter side, bringing out loads of caramel, red fruits, and loads of resinous hops. Not overly bitter or one-sided in the hops. Usually I’m not a big fan of such sweet IPAs, but this is wonderfully balanced. Excellent stuff.
