COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Pours a dark caramel and orange color witg a cream colored white head. Aroma is heavy malt caramel sweetness, and fruity hops come through, overripe mango, some peach and bits of pine. Taste is also heavy with caramel flavors, again with overripe mango, peaches and pine, some bitterness that hangs for a minute. Abv is dangerously hidden. Good brew

BlowOffTube (442) - Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Blood orange pour with cream colored head. Lots of pine and citrus on the nose. Pine and grapefruit dominate the taste with some sweetness and citrus and a big malt body. Medium body light carbonation. Dangerous because of hidden ABV. Good stuff.

jstonerock24 (107) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber red color with very minimal head. Aroma is strong caramel and mild citrus. Flavor is very sweet with very strong caramel and mild hop bitterness. Finishes very sweet.

Aroma is sweet fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, honey, then piny. Appearance is burnt orange, off white head. Taste is balanced between sweet and piny, rather dangerous as I cannot detect the booze whatsoever. Mouthfeel is sticky, soft, nice. Overall, I wanted more in the flavor department based off the smell but this is very good anyway.

Draft at Logan's Alley - pours a deep gold . Huge pine and citrus aromas . Taste brings lots of grapefruit and a piney bite. 2014 vintage is well balanced and alcohol is hidden compared to years past . Hard to beat this DIPA . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a stemmed La Fin Du Monde glass. The color is a dark amber/maroon with a finger and a half foamy off-white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is hoppy with some interesting malt background. There is some interesting fruity aromas that come out in big beers like this. An orange and grapefruit aroma that is sweet and sour at the same time. The taste is so sweet with a malty flavor I have to stop in my tracks and pry the different flavors apart. There is a grapefruit flavor that is sweet ad sugary and is so sweet it takes on a sugary mass of flavor with some slight orange and other citrus flavors as it makes up the tent-pole of this beer. There is a sugary flavor that is holding in the hoppy bitterness and keeps it from taking over. This beers flavor is turned up to eleven. The feel of this beer is big, there is a whole lot of beer here and it is nothing to toy with. Some truly great back-end flavors and a nice slap on the back from the ABV is there to say hello. A beer with a smooth feel and a big kick.

Idiosynkrasie (3633) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
355ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Resinous, piney and citrusy hop aroma, caramel malty background. Taste is intensely malty, resinous, sweaty, hints of purulence, almond, bitter hoppy overtones; full body, some warming alcohol. OK, strong and heavy - but there’s no proportionality of quality and quantity. In this case I’d even say, it’s simply too much and therefore a loss of quality.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is celery, hops, fruits, and pine. The look has white head, and yellow in color. The taste is good, pine, hops, bitterness, and big.
