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.

Cannile (12) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2012
I cracked the bottle and was immediately greeted with an explosion of deep forest pine and dank hop skunkiness. Pours thick and moderately syrupy. Dark copper in color. Head dissipates fairly quickly, though leaves generous lacing at every inch it touches. Aroma of sharp pine, rosemary, weed, and grass. As the liquid warms, that signature butterscotch aroma of diacetyl quickly makes an appearance. And although this descriptor may be used often, there is an element in its aroma that smells as if you really are sticking your nose into a package of fresh high-alpha hops. Moderately full bodied and fairly sweet with generous two-dimensional caramel and scotch malt characteristics. Immediately displays a perfect dose of that first-wort bitter characteristic along with that butterscotch diacetyl we talked about upon sipping, following by a complimentary dose of spice and pine hop characteristics. Hardly oxidized. There are little to no fruity, citric hop attributes in this one. I find that the entire hop profile of this beer is balanced in absolute perfect harmony, in that it is not weighted as too bitter, too flavorful, or too aromatic. Also, at ten percent alcohol by volume, there is not a single hint of booze. The first thing that comes to mind as I enjoy this Knuckle Sandwich is a coiled rattlesnake, ready to strike at its unsuspecting prey, in the sense that every aspect of this beer is pulled back and tight-knit; bitterness, maltiness, flavorful, moderately full-bodied ... and yet I am only halfway through the twenty-two ounce bottle and am already feeling its venomous effects. Pretty good stuff.

jbruner (3987) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with thin wispy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice hoppy pine notes with a hint of stone fruit and caramel malt. Taste follows, great balance, booze is pretty well hidden. Solid DIPA.

Habanero (4026) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2016
Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peachy notes, apricot, lightly floral and with some caramel too. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and solid bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

olio (9276) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016
65 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled on 16.03.2016.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Strong resin on the nose, hops, pine needles, malts and caramel. Flavor is sweet resinous hops, caramel, bitter malts, tropical fruits, some pineapple. Slightly on the sweet side but the alcohol is fairly well hidden because of that, I like the heavy bitterness, could be slightly fruitier though, heavy.
