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.

Red bottle that lists the abv as 7%. Amber pour with a rich thick white head that laces as it slowly dissipates. Aroma is sweet orange citrus hops and honey malt notes. taste is straightforward, smooth creamy mouth feel that isn’t too bitter, but lots of citrus, particularly orange. Really pleasant ipa.

On tap at brewery, a nice addition to the west coast style of IPA’a. Good carbonation, a lot of hop taste in the finish. It is a session IPA at only 6 percent so you can drink it all day! Good.

Taster at downtown Vista tasting room. Pours a orange yellow with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and some sweet malts. Taste is similar and also includes some white wine grape notes and has a lot of pineapple flavor. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry, well hopped, long finish. overall, a nice, hoppy, sessionable IPA from the ever improving Mother Earth.

StefanSD (2190) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 28, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a translucent amber-copper color with a mid sized off-white head that has very good retention. The aroma is strong with resins, oranges, grapefruit and a touch of toffee. The flavor mirrors the nose, more oranges, grapefruit and resins set in toffee malt base. The palate is full, smooth and seemed a bit heavy--carbonation is lively. Finishes medium in duration with lingering bitter pine resins. Overall: Decent IPA, will drink again.

22oz. bottle shared by James at Zach & Matt’s tasting. Pours slightly golden amber with a foamy white head. Strong grapefruit and pine notes in the aroma and taste. Some sweetness balances out the bitterness. Finish is slightly bitter but really clean and refreshing.

Bottle at a tasting at Matt’s place. Pours a slightly hazed orange amber with a thin white to beige head. Bright citrus and a touch of lemon on the nose, caramel and touches of citrus candy. Medium bodied, long citrus with some earthy pithy grapefruit notes. Very nice.
