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

Savage_Night (145) - California, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pours dark amber with a off white head. Head retention in poor. AROMA: floral hops, caramel, spice, light peppercorn, alcohol, soap, herbs, citrus, leaves and spruce. TASTE: hop oil bitterness, caramel, spruce, citrus, earthy, alcohol, raisin, Sichuan peppercorns, slightly sour, cough drop and spices. AFTER TASTE: hop oil bitterness, caramel, peppercorns and alcohol with a warm oily finish. Same warmth I get from a nice smooth whisky. Glad I tried it but sad that it was my last and only one. Trading for more now.

Strong aroma and great taste with the hops just powering through the light sweet caramel. Huge beer at 12% even though it could trick you. Strongly recomend it.

Mocarz z kategorii "bardziej słodkich IPA" co może być nudne w wykonaniu polskich kontraktowców, ale w przypadku Dark Horse rodzi spore nadzieje. Rzeczywiście - w aromacie dostajemy po nozdrzach potężną dawką karmelowego ciasta i słodkich owoców tropikalnych, nie ma mowy o żadnym diacetylu. Alkohol nieźle ukryty jak na deklarowany woltaż. W smaku potężna, wręcz oleista baza, wspaniale słodka, ale ożywiona żywicznością lasu i przełamana cytrusowym wtrętem. Goryczka - spora, ale nie przytłaczająca, alkohol rozgrzewający przyjemnie bebechy. Świetna Double IPA.

Hoppy nose with hints of brown sugar. Initial tastes of brown sugar and pine. Boozy almost tounge numbing oddly. Very good.

Bottle from Brewdog online - cloudy amber with thick off-white head. Aroma of resin, hops and caramel. Taste is hoppy, sweet, caramel, pine. Full bodied, soft carbonation, alcohol warmth in the long bitter finish. Nice.
