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.

Ataraxia (424) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 18, 2013
Clear golden amber color, frothy off-white head. Sugary aroma of grapefruit, citrus, mango, pine resin, bread malt, and herbal traces. Initial sweetness gives way to hoppy bitterness. Smooth, medium-bodied, and a little boozy. Long bitter finish.

Very nice ipa. Pleasing nose with a very soft palate. Not overly bitter but still maintains good hop flavor. Bottle from whole foods

reggiedunlop (3537) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a clear bright light amber with a medium off white head. Aroma has light caramel atop wonderful melon and tropical fruits. Flavor follows suit...a bit sweet on the caramel but saved by melon notes...hides the 10% fabulously! Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and earthy/bitter.

Sample from a 22oz bottle, shared by someone at the end of Cam’s BCBS tasting. Clear orange - red color. Thin off-white head. Little lace. Lighter, softer carbonation. More dry. Tropical fruity hop, little caramel. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Some grapefruit. Solid DIPA.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - APR 8, 2013
bottles poured an amber brown, similar color to nugget nectar actually. Not sure if this was less fresh than some of the better review but i found it to be medicore at best. sweetness & malt over powered the hops IMO. would give this one another shot, but would look to try it a couple weeks after bottling

Dark orange, creamy two-finger off-white head with light orange tint to it. Nose is tropical fruits and then this light vegetable/Chinese food smell that isn’t necessarily off-putting, then some more vegetation. Taste is big juicy tropical fruits, light vegetable, toffee. Juicy finish that leaves a dry lasting bitterness. A little boozy but it doesn’t negate that much from the overall quality.

The aroma is an aldehydic fruity floral. Heady base notes of honeysuckle and heliotrope intertwined with syrupy mid notes of overripe stone fruits. The top note is a bail of hay with an ephemeral hoppiness. The color is exactly that of a urine sample belonging to a person afflicted with a bladder infection--a slightly hazy amber with fiery flecks of red strewn throughout. The thick, frothy head is reminiscent of the discharge experienced after contracting chlamydia. Looks better than it tastes. For a DIPA, the hop flavor was disappointingly one dimensional and left much to be desired. Rotting pluots and stale potpourri dominate. Metallic aftertaste can only be likened to sipping from a cup full of 1965 pennies belonging to a transitory skid row resident. Agressive suds envelope the tongue upon initial contact. Overly sharp ethanol burns as the bubbles burst traveling through the throat and esophagus. Exorbitant price of $7.50 for a pint served in a mason jar at the brewery. Supremely overpriced for such a deficient beer.

skmikeg (1472) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2013
22 oz. bomber. Pours a deep copper orange with a one finger off white head which fades to decent lacing. Aroma is of pine, grapefruit, sweet malts, caramel, and some rye. Taste is of pine, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, rye, some tropical fruits, and maybe toffee. Has a medium-full body with a slightly creamy, and a slightly dry, slightly boozy, moderately bitter, yet still sweet, medium long finish. Overall, a pretty nice DIPA that is a tad too malty and boozy for my taste.
