3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m a moderate hophead with a long penchant for IPA’s, but I am not liking the cut of the Imperial IPA jibb. This is as good as any double IPA as any maybe better than most. The hops are harsh and aggressisve in the aroma. Pours a nice hazy tangerine. Some hotness from the alcohol but it is overwhelmed by the hop liquor. Not my favorite beer, but I am trying to rate to style and this, as stated above, is better than most.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske, 355 ml. Uklar, let grødet dyb ravfarvet øl med et forholdsvis lavt men stabilt off white skum. Typisk DIPA-næse. Lidt tilbageholdt, med sødlige, frugtig, maltede noter og vag humle, som langsomt vokser til en fælles symfoni af tunge abrikos, harpiks og karamel. Tung, klistrende og rig i munden men med en overraskende sprød og klar humle-profil, taget alderen i betragtning - der er ikke dato på flasken, men den er indkøbt for 9-10 måneder siden. Virker ikke sprittet, selv om alkoholen er fremtrædende.

Wow. 13% is no joke! This is a powerhouse of a beer. You definitely feel the hops and the high octane.

Pours a bit murky orange with minimal head. Caramel and toffee aromas with some resinous/earthy hops. Big bold palate, big chewy malts at first, then a generous bitterness hits the palate, very earthy, coffeeish, and lasts for a good while into the finish. Big, bad ass brew, that I quite enjoyed as a night cap.

Bottle. My bottle said 12 per cent not 13.6 per cent. Clear and golden with as you would expect a reasonable presence of hops but amazingly they dont overpower. So easy to drink that it was quite frightening.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: Deep Amber Hue, Passes Mild Light, Off White Head, Minimal
S: Boozy, Sweet Malts, Mild Piney
T: Boozy, Caramel, Sweet Malts
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet, Mildly Drying
Overall, this is more of a barleywine than a DIPA, boozy taste, not impressive to the style but a good beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The Double Crooked Tree pours a cloudy deep amber color with a beige bubbly beige head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is full of caramel and spruce. The flavor jumps on you with the sweet caramel getting to you first then a mix of floral spruce and citrus hops smash through. Overall this is a delicious brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark amber with nice 2 finger off white head. Some good lacing. Aroma is very one-dimensional - Piney, resinous with very little fruit. Taste is primarily caramel malt and alcohol . Not well balanced at all. Almost a medicinal sickly sweet taste. A chore to drink to be honest. Very little hoppiness. What there is, is indecipherable. Distinctly unremarkable.
