COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle thanks to my buddy jose for bringing this from la to dc for me to sample. Pours deep orange almost amber with a small off white soapy head. Nose is resin pine lite alcohol big carmel sweetness with resin sort of like a barleywine. Flavors of sweet carmel malt up front then finishes very dry and resinous. Long dry resinous piney finish witb lingering alcohol. Some heat in the finish. Not a bad iipa but not great.

Thanks Kenric! 22oz bottle received in a trade. Pours amber with a small white head. Nose is floral, creamy, citrus, caramel...this is smooth! Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but I’m good with that. Very well done DIPA that hides the alcohol burn well. This is very drinkable for 10% abv.

Bottle (22 oz). Thanks Nick! Deep amber with a medium/large frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of malt, grapefruit, pine, citrus and slight earthy notes. Taste is moderately sweet with citrus (grapefruit), pine, malt and earthy notes with a moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Dry. Clean. Very good DIPA. Not boozy despite 10% abv. Good balance. Refreshing.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
This was at an ESBLS tasting at Dave’s house. Poured a beautiful, clear, copper color and raised an attractive tan head and left good lacing as it settled Nose is full of citrus and pine hops. Body is medium and mouthfeel is clean and smooth. The flavor is intense with a great balance between the flavorful hops and malts. Finish is long, dry and perfectly bitter. This is simply a great beer.

mezr (96) - California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Poured a beautiful, clear, amber color from a 22 oz bottle. A medium, frothy head developed and settled to a white film a few minutes later. Light lacing on the glass. The aroma is inviting with pronounced resin, pine, and citrus, but not intense. Taste is very clean, at first lightly sweet, and then the bitter kicks in and grows nicely. Medium body, carbonation that’s just right for the style of beer, and a very pleasent, long finish. Definitely on of the better double IPA’s I’ve sampled.
