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.

mezr (116) - California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Poured a beautiful, clear, amber color from a 22 oz bottle. A medium, frothy head developed and settled to a white film a few minutes later. Light lacing on the glass. The aroma is inviting with pronounced resin, pine, and citrus, but not intense. Taste is very clean, at first lightly sweet, and then the bitter kicks in and grows nicely. Medium body, carbonation thats just right for the style of beer, and a very pleasent, long finish. Definitely on of the better double IPAs Ive sampled.

caesar (6933) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2017
Bottle @ Benzais Crazy Carnaval 2017, 5-10 cl sample, thanks all for sharing! Almost clear orange golden color, short frothy head. Aroma is malty and "weeig", so a bit herbal. Lacks some fresh hops and, even though it might not be superfresh, is clearly focused on being a malty DIPA. Too sweet in taste for me. Meh.

ShivanDragon (3786) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2017
van fles @Benzais Anti-carnaval Tasting; 66cl, 10%. helder amber/rood met geelwitte bubbels/kraag. Aroma is hoppig, graan en mout. Smaken zijn vrij moutig. hoog alcoholisch, granig, niet echt typisch een DIPA meer een US Barley Wine, wat granig-mout van karakter.

Benzai (15012) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle @ Anti-carnaval Tasting. Clear reddish color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is malts, sticky resinous hops. Taste malts, hops, sticky resinous piney hops, heavy sweet, sweet sticky hops, medium bitter. Medium body and carbonation. A bit too much barley wine-ish, but otherwise decent.

From a bottle. Pours clear copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like caramel malt, resin, sweet grapefruit, nutty, boozy, and citrus hops. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like grapefruit hops, toffee malt, resin, and nutty.

Deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma is brown sugar, baked pineapple, candied orange peel. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a good load of balancing hop bitterness. Taste is candied orange peel, dark toffee, hint of pine, caramel.

jbruner (4446) - 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 (4490) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, 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. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
