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.

superspak (6228) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2017
Got as a gift from RaulMondesi. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/19/2017. Pours crystal clear deep orange/amber/light copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with fantastic retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted bread, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very slight booze in the aromas as it warmed. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted bread, biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted bread, biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, fairly sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Alcohol is very well hidden, a mildly increasing warmth of 10% lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic DIPA! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the big ABV; with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Extremely juicy hop complexity; sizable malt backbone, but never overly sweet/heavy feeling for the ABV with nice adequate lingering hop dryness. A highly enjoyable offering. Loved the hop profile, very classic tasting.

Tasted at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. Good flavors, close to style, as expected without too many surprises.

Draft at the source. Clear amber with a light beige head. Aroma of citrus, pine, caramel. Taste follows nose with a boozy warming finish.

Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2017
(Bootleggers Knuckle Sandwich) Bottle at Anticarnaval tasting. Deep copper colour on the body, clear, with a small, off-white hed on top. Lots of caramel malts, alcohol and light hops on the aroma. Taste is sweet with caramel, biscuit, dough, light hop presence, alcohol. Medium body with good carbonation. Nice one for a hoppy barleywine, a bit heavy for a DIPA.

Abijen (2572) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2017
Oranje rood bier met een kleine witte schuim kraag. Ruikt fruitig, hop, zoet fruit. Smaakt naar rood fruit, hop, bitter.
