COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In medieval times, the Knucker was the infamous water dragon that wreaked havoc on local farming communities by consuming local livestock and even villagers! This soothing serum was was concocted to tame the savage beast! A great session IPA. This beer has a balanced mix of 3 varieties of hops, and is dry hopped for a week with Simcoe and Amarillo. Can you say Grapefruit? If you enjoy the hop characteristics of our DIPA but without that punch-in-the-mouth experience, look no further than Auld Knucker. 6% ABV, 92 IBUs.

On draft at Slaters 50/50 in RC. It pours gold with a frothy white head. The aroma is a bit faint and bready with some peaches. The flavor is dry and bready with some florals and strong bitterness. Not a lot of hop flavor, which was disappointing, but nothing seriously off. Decent stuff.
