look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz brown bomber poured into the trusty Jämtlands tulip.

A: A beautiful darker shade of amber crowned by a lasting off-white head, which leaves some nice lacing.

S: This is a serious hop bomb and the favorite petroleum-fumed hop variety (?) is leading the way. There are also some distinct citrus aromas on the nose.

T: Initially this seemed too sweet on the tongue. But after the third or fourth sip, it became apparent that this was simply the malty backbone of the Knuckle Sandwich. This is a superbly balanced DIPA with all manner of hops flavors, from mango to pine, mingling with the malts.

M: Carbonation, check. Hop oils, check. Full-bodied, check. Dry, check.

D: A brown bomber of this beauty is ultimately a little hard for this reviewer to finish on his own. Perhaps it's the 10% abv in tandem with the aforementioned sweetness. Toning that down a bit (not necessarily the abv) would benefit the Sandwich.

Bootlegger's has a winner here, and a small disclaimer here. I had a bad experience with their Hefeweizen - it seemed to have citrus added to it though this was not the brewers intent. Anywho, I need to revisit that one. I was thrilled to see this at the Beverage Warehouse in MdR, and at $5.99 this will become a staple.
