4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I think that this is the most flavorful IPA brewed in the state. Itís full body lasts and you know you are drinking a real beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden-amber, hazy with an off-white cap and nice, chunky lacing. Very hoppy aroma with pungent perfume, florals, wet roses; earthy, ashy, and peppery just a bit. Light toasted bread and cracker malts on the palate. Great hop show as well; spicy, herbal tea leaves, white pepper. Commanding bitterness with some grapefruit and lemon zest, mild "Lemon Pledge" characteristic, a bit of alcohol warmth. Very light toasty malt flavors. Slick, residual palate stickiness. Solid Michigan IPA, I get this from time to time.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Very orange with a whitish tan head that retains well after the pour.
The taste is citrus piney not highly malty but a sweet bitter finish.
Overall a super IPA. A hidden gem of a brew. Easily will put this on my list of "have again"

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep golden with white head. Nose is of pine and citrus aromas. Bit of a hop bit but a bot off balanced with the lighter malts. A decent ipa but not one of my favorites

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy orange with low head. Grapefruit, resin and pine on the nose, and the flavour follows with more. This I could drink all day long.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Crooked Tree pours a dark yellow tangerine orange with a cream colored head that lasts a bit and leaves good lacing. The aroma is orange citrus hops and it smells good. The flavor is floral and citrus hops with the slightest hint of caramel up front. The mixture of floral and citrus hangs on well into the aftertaste. Overall this is a delightful brew.
