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.

Bomber from Valley Farm. Highly hopped nose. Some sweet and a lot of tropical fruit. Light amber in color. Somewhat sweet and highly hopped. Pretty good balance. Finish has a sort of dry peppery hop character to it. A hint of alcohol in the finish.

22oz bottle. Deep beautiful orange color. Great aroma of citrus, resiny pine, and grapefruit. The taste and mouth feel are of the charts. These guys at Bootleggers are killing it. I look forward to more beers from them...

Bottle. Pours reddish amber with white head. Nose and taste of tree bark, caramel malt, tree sap, resinous pine, dried citrus rind, orange peel and perfumy hops. A bit too perfumy for me. Medium body. Finishes dry resin/tree bark.

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Aroma- floral hints, honey, passion fruit, nectarines, slight medicinal hints Appearance- rust brown/orange, incredible lacing, decent white head Taste- definite pine, some citrus, grass, bread, bittersweet finish Palate- very nice body and mouthfeel for this style, exceptional Overall- Above average DIPA in my book but nothing to rant and rave about. IMO this would have been better off as a 100% Citra DIPA than the various hop varieties they used. Also too malt forward to make it a 4+ brew.

jredmond (5915) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Sampled at GABF 2012 with Andrew and Moreau. Pours a deep, hazy amber body with nice white lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits, pineapple and fresh resin. Mouthfeel is juicy and full, still nearly sessionable despite the 10% abv; notes of pineapple, pine resin, light fruity malt and juicy tropical fruits

A friend shared this bottle and I had mixed feelings about this beer. It looked like it was a dark orange color with a small wispy head. The smell was quite hoppy, pine and citrus. The flavor was also nce and hoppy with more pine but it was also sweet, syrupy, and astringent. I was happy to only have to finish eleven ounces because a full bomber would be too much.

Possibly old. It is a decent ipa but for a west coaster it doesnt seem syper assertive.

Big thanks to mrmiles for this extra bomber A: Pours a deep garnet color with a small fluffy white cap. The head and the retention is decent given the ABV S: If I could give this a 6 I would...exactly what I love in IPAs. Lots of sweet pineapple juice, mango, blood orange, apricot, pear, and other orchard fruits. So damn awesome. Malts do a lot in terms of balancing, also adding some caramel sweetness. T: Sweet tropical fruit...whoever mentioned candied pineapple hit the nail on the head. Also candied mango. Lots of residual sugar on top of sweet tropical/citrus fruit, on top of sweet caramel from the malts. Alcohol is very warming, but not really a problem. Well balanced- sweetness with hops. MF/D: Viscous, sweet, and smooth. Easy to drink despite the ABV. Do not recommend taking a bomber down by yourself...which is what I am attempting, hence my 4 rating for drink Notes: Really solid offering from a brewery I’ve never tried or even heard of...But definitely will be ISO their beers in the future.
