Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "the Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you'll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, they’re just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBU's

Citrus, juicy hops dominate the nose. Dark amber pour with a nice white head that leaves adequate lacing. Taste is like a hop bomb went off in your mouth but the caramel malts balance this beer so well. Palate is thick, hoppy up front and malty on the back end but finishes wonderfully bitter. This is a great dipa, smooth and balanced. The alcohol is hidden well. Must try.

Great DIPA that manages to be substantial without being overwhelming. Strong but still drinkable. It's hard to believe this beer clocks in at 13%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 12oz bottle. Big head with some cloudiness and flavor crystals in the bottom of the glass. Big malt and alcohol with this beer, but very very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheCaptMatey (181) - Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2015
2014 bottle with 12% alcohol. Poured a hazy amber with an inch of off white head. Aroma is caramel malt with hop pine and citrus. Flavor is sweet caramel, bready, and elements of citrus and hop resin. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Smooth resin like mouthfeel with a moderate hop bitterness that lingers. Fairly sweet and smooth overall.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange; the head fades fairly quickly. Aromas of pine, pineapple, citrus that largely disappear with the head; replaced with sweet malts, caramel malt. Definitely a malty DIPA, but the flavor hops are still there to add some nice complexity--they last into the finish. Very good balance between sweet/bitter. I get a bit of alcohol on the back end, though it is remarkable how minor this is for such a big DIPA. A bit syrupy. Medium+ to Full bodied.

SpongeRuiner (894) - Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 Pours a dark golden amber color with a thick off white head. A big malty aroma with a citrus undertone. A sharp nail polish remover harsh bite that hits right away. A slight citrus flavor goes through then gets smashed again by aggressive bitterness. I’m all for the hops but this one does not flow. It’s ok one sip at a time. Not my favorite especially considering Crooked Tree is one of my favorites from the brewery and a great IPA.
