12oz bottle pours a brown color with a bit of head. Total malt bomb. Fruity aroma and in some ways more like a barley wine that a double IPA.

A: Pours a cloudy amber color forming a medium and very creamy light yellow head. Medium to low retention and lots of soapy and lingering lacings left in the glass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers’n’more. Pours clear amber, little head. Quite a weak nose for a DIPA, but still full of aroma. I haven’t tried the "normal" Crooked Tree, so I can’t really compare, but this one is full in every other sense. Taste, hops, malts, alcohol. Still, all this doesn’t quite combine to something extraordinary to make a superb beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very solid beer. Aroma of caramel, tangerine, grapefruit and a little bit presence of pine. Seeet bready malt, so smooth for the style, smells of alcool when the bir becames a little less cold. Tangerine notes, not so bitter and strong malty presence. At least Barleywineish malty profile. Good but not great, not so bitter at all.

Pours a cloudy orange amber with a thin head. Aroma is orange, toffee, resin and alcohol. Flavor is sweet with notes of orange, caramel malt and hops. Not as boozy as I thought it would be. Sticky oily mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Finish is very dry. Beautiful in aroma, appearance and taste. Top notch Imperial IPA.
