Draft. Pours orange with a thin white head. Piney hops, lightly sweet malts, and medium lingering bitterness. Not bad.

MrBunn (2458) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly brownish gold with a decent head and soapy citrus aromas. Flavor is a mix of soap, lemongrass, cat pee and toffee, but the toffee is odd and really subtle. Mouthfeel is thin and the beer finishes with a lemony zestiness.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 Similar to crooked tree but a little more crisp. So far best in series and easy to drink

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2013
On tap at Milltown. Thanks, Ethan! Nice light orange pour, plenty carbonated and vibrant looking. Nicely grassy nose, some straw and citrus rind. Smooth bodied but lively on the palate. Bright grapefruit notes pop up in the taste, with just enough malts in there for balance, but this is largely bracingly grassy. Enjoyed it.

DocLock (7866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at Caponeís. Pours hazy orangy with off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, resiny floral hops, orange zest. Tastes caramel malty, with some bitter tangeriney, resiny hoppy, and mild floral notes in the finish.

7/26/2013: Dark Horse Edacsac Dekoorc Eert - Iím pretty sure there is something wrong with this keg since the beer looks like peanut butter in the glass. No joke. It is completely opaque and really dirty looking, but is a dull, unnatural brown color that reminds me of Better ín Peanut Butter spread. Even though this beer looks terrible, it actually doesnít taste too bad and is even a bit better than the Dark Horse F.F. Dekoorc Eert. That having been said, this still isnít a very good beer. It has some decent fresh, leafy hopiness and moderate bitterness, but thatís about it besides sweat and a weird wheat characteristic. Everything else seems to just be lost in the liquid yeast cake that Iím apparently trying to drink. Overall, poor quality control on this one. This keg should have never made it out of the brewery.

Draught (sample and pint) at Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #74 for this beer.

zgaier (1395) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at Dark Horse Brewery. Pours orange with a white head and aroma of straight hops, can really smell the cascade. Taste is hoppy, lots of citrus, pine, and tropical fruits with a hoppy, bitter finish. Nice IPA, cascade hops work well

biggsbowler (298) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle - Pours a dark amber w/ white frothy head. Lots of grapefruit, oranges, and tangerines in the nose. Starts with oranges and tangerines plus some lemons and grapefruits towards the end, creating a very bitter finish.

The bottle said unfiltered, but no trace of sediments in the color. A bit more brown than a typical IPA. Iíve had Crooked Tree before as well as the FF variety. The citrus and the bitterness are all there, but I feel like this beer is more of a character study about cascade hops than an actual alternative to Crooked Tree. I learned more about identifying cascade from this beer, but Iíd take the original for a real drink.
