HonkeyBra (3528) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Hazed amber-brown pour with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, juicy resin. Smells delicious. Flavor is delicious. Melon, tropical fruit, nice caramel malt. This is a delicious IPA. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel. Smooth finish. Excellent, great showcase of the citra hop.

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle part of an IPA-themed mix pack. Pours out a cloudly light golden amber. Bready-spice aromas. Flavor is slighty citrus, but mostly bitter spice and bread. Pretty boring.

blackflag321 (507) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle pour to shaker. Mild grapefruit, soft, slightly sweet palate. I enjoyed all three Crooked Tree single hop specials.

jstraw (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Hazy dark orange-gold with good, creamy, white head / Bright but malty nose of citrus, pine, candied sugar / Medium body, malty, biting hops with some astringency, a touch watery but with otherwise good balance and bitter finish / Big flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, cut pine, resin / Seems a bit out of balance, with modest alcohol but big fruit and hops?? Still a very pleasant, if very bitter, ipa.

Bottle. The reddest of the single showcase ipas. The taste is a little smoother than the others. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Light fruity aroma. Flavors display citra nicely, with a hit of pineapple and some juicy hop resin. Clean, well supported with what I think is a very fine base malt structure, and a nice balance of bitterness. I thought that the aroma could have shown off more of the pungent, papaya-esque bombastic qualities of Citra, but it was still solid.

fattybladdy (617) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 13, 2013
12oz bottle, pours a hazy orange with white head. Scent is citrus, fruit, and earthy. Taste is more earthy bitterness than the original, also less malt. Good, but I’d take the original.

tastybeer (1782) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark orange/copper with a white head, poor retention/some lace. Aroma of earth, citrus hops, orange peel, caramel/light toast malt. Taste is bitter, floral/citrus hop, caramel, earth. Palate is soft, a bit oily, bitter finish. Not quite as good as 3F ZD.

reggiedunlop (3219) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma has mild orange and stonefruit...subdued and muddled. Flavor has peach and tea...earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and syrupy with a dry earthy bitter finish that is muddled with light graininess.
