COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
21st Anniversary Brew. We will be releasing the first batch ever of "Brass Knuckle Imperial I.P.A.", "White Knuckles" big brother. Using the same raw materials as our White Knuckle Double I.P.A., we have created an even bigger hop monster. Similar flavors, but MORE! We used over 8 lbs. of hops per barrel in the "Brass Knuckle" & dry hopped it 3 times! This brew weighs in at about 10% alcohol by volume. Beware of the PUNCH of the "Brass Knuckle".

"maybe because it’s also maltier and heavier, but this was not noticeably hoppier than white knuckle, an excellent beer in it’s own right. darker, dank hops. aromatic, pungent, and thick. reasonably well balanced for a hoppy monster of a beer. "

Pours golden amber. Pretty sweet. Hops are pineapple, apricot, fruit, cantaloupe. A big double and definitely a sipper instead of a repeater. Very nice, but a bit sweet for me.
