Cloudy reddish brown. Aroma and taste are very boozy. Hops in the finish but overall are kind of lacking for a double IPA.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Good double ipa but could use a little more hops in my opinion. The alcohol is covered up very well, can’t really tell that it’s 12% so it will sneak up on you

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Double crooked tree on tap at the Beer Trappe (Lexington, KY).
Medium amber with excellent clarity and a large, bone-colored, durable head. Excellent coating of foam gets left on the glass.
Remarkably sweet up front, but there’s a load of hops in here and it turns moderately bitter by the finish. Complex hop mix give off a mostly herbal and fruity aroma but are herbal, piney and floral in the mouth, and a bit earthy in the aftertaste. Some citrus too.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.
O: a hop bomb for hop heads, particularly if a lower level of bitterness is desired.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on April Fools Day while watching the Heat. This stuff is pretty damn good. Appearance is a gorgeous ruby red with a rich white head that rims around the glass, looks rather vibrant. Aroma is pretty sweet with nice caramel malt / syrupy notes, along with a great hop profile and sweet honey. Taste goes down with caramel syrup and hop flavor, it’s really hoppy without being really bitter, other ratings state fruit notes (peach) and I agree. As well, the ABV of this is surprising while tasting this. Really is a nice DIPA.
