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

355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. 12% these days, by the way. Pours clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of wood alcohol, pine. Taste is oily, malty, sweet, alcohol burn. Medium body, slick finish. Just ok, thought it would be better.

I had this at the brewpub. It looked kind of like Orange chocolate milk... But it was crazy sweet and hoppy and boozy as hell.... Fun stuff this beer. Fun stuff indeed.

Madsen1635 (258) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle, ABV 12%. Hazy dark amber pour with tan head. Aroma is strong with flowers on sweet malty base. Lots of peach and citrus. Taste is overwhelming. Instant bitterness on top of sweetness. Balanced although on the sweet side. Quite high carbonation. The ABV is felt but not in a bad way.

Holy hell. Smells strong. Malty with a big caramel note. Maybe some dark fruits. Smells like a barely wine. Pours a dark golden color. Brown like. Taste is heavy. Hoppy, tart, strong. More like a barley wine than a DIPA. Be ready to sip this. It hits you hard.

Underdogs88 (97) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Intense malt aromas of toffee and caramel. High fruity esters. Moderate citrus hop aroma. Appearance is a muddy dirty blonde appearance with a white head with poor head retention. Malt flavors of caramel and bread dominate the hops. Bitterness is present but the finish is sweet. Esters are high. Mouthfeel is medium with medium low carbonation. High alcohols are noticeable. Overall, it tastes more like an American barleywine than a double ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First let me say that I scored this beer as a double ipa since that is what dark horse is calling it. This is a very nice beer, but it is just to bad that this is an American barley wine and not an DIPA. As a barley wine this would score much higher. It is just to bad that companies have no clue as to how to label their beer correctly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
