COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís not as heavy bodied and malty as many IPAís, in contrast the palate is more crisp and dry. If you consider yourself a "hop-head" you owe it to yourself to grab this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2012 IPAs are my favorite and have tried many of them. This one is good. The flavors of citrus, the overall taste was very good. No complaints on Crooked Tree IPA. update: This is the absolute best ipa out there.

Pours a deep, almost cloud gold with a light, bright white head. Pleasant creamy, malty aroma that hides the hop aroma. Fresh fruit taste that goes from citrus to something crisp and on the apple end of the spectrum and ends a tad dry (which I assume it the beer urging me to take another sip).

Pours out a cloudy dark golden color. The bottle has a lot of sediment which I dredged some up into my glass. The smell is very citric, with pine, grapefruit, tangerine and even some vague vanilla aromas. Wow the taste is sharply bitter, with some lemon zest, pine, grapefruit and perhaps some orange tastes. Really a full and rich tasting IPA. I'm glad I finally tried this, this one is a stand out from a lot of IPAs on the shelf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden in colour, translucent, smooth and tasty! I would like another for sure. Like others I got a real pine flavour.

Easily in my top 5 favorite beers. Great classic IPA taste splendid color and fantastic aroma. Out of the draught it has a smoky golden color with a floral finish

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 Bottle purchased in December 2005 and consumed July 2006.
A little bit of age has made this stunningly admirable. Lovely, semi-hazed and dull caramel-orange in color with a resplendently clinging khaki tinted head. Aroma suggests all thatís beautiful and right in this world - sugar sprinkled ruby red grapefruit, papaya rind, crisp mango butter, pulpy oranges smeared on pine branches and a freshly cut, wet spring grass abatement. Huge flavor force. Spicy caramel, pine and bittersweet grapefruit surplus. Peach and cream cheese danishes give a fruity-bready combo thatís simply delectable. Rounded, thorough malt backbone. Wholesome clementine and apricot lightness amidst the chewy caramel ribbon, with an ever-so-slight hint of butter pecan. Perfect carbonation and a semi-oily duality meet blissfully mid-mouth for indescribable sensations. Moderate bitterness adheres and abates citrus flavored corn flakes and piney-orange Fanta-esque flavors. A+.

On tap at the brewery, July 2005.
Unfiltered, pale orange with a modest white head. Aroma rules: grapefruit, nectar, botanical gardens and lemon grass. Nice smooth hop bouquet. Sweet honey accents fuel a fresh cut grass persona to make this a staple of the style. Bitter, absent of other flavors, finish.
