Knuckle Sandwich Double IPA

Beer Data

10% ABV

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.

I've been missing out with this one.

This is a great DIPA from a local brewery in Fullerton, CA. Deep copper in color and rich spicy aroma from the hops. The first sensation I noticed was the hops, followed quickly by the strong malt base. Both rich in malt and hops, this well balanced beer truly stands out among some of the best.

Served on Tap at Oggi's Pizza and Beer in Fullerton. I've had this brew several times over the years, and I feel as though I can never quite pin down what it is supposed to taste like. Not to say that it has ever been awful, but over the years I feel as though the batches have not been consistent. That said, the one we have on tap [I bartend at the Oggi's] is quite a pleasurable brew.

Very complex nose gives off an almost fruity quality, citrus and berries are two of the scents I've gathered. The brew is fierce but not harsh. A little warmth doesn't hurt the flavor, but makes the fruit character stand out more in my opinion. I get a bit of spiciness as well, and the warmth of a heavy malt base [that allows this beer to clock in at 10%] make the balance of malty/bitter flavors dance together quite well. Would recommend the draft over the bottle if the option is available.
