3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty IPA with almost a medicinal/ herbal hop with a piney finish. A bit sweet from the malt but overall balanced. Ends up with a dry finish. Not a huge fan of the medicinal hop profile but a well made IPA overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another single hop Crooked Tree experiment by Dark Horse. Pours dark orange, with average creamy diminishing off-white head. Fair lacing. Totally chunky, medium to full body, with bitter aftertaste. Average malts, cookie and caramel. Heavy hops, mostly pine and citrus. Moderately bitter. Canít say I liked it as much as I expected.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from TRT. Poured a murky deep orange with tons of floaties and an average sized frotht off white head. Aroma/flavor of herbs, medicine, band aids, earth, rotting fruit. Flavor has the added joy of a slight medicinal note. This is just not good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from CBC Newton, drunk 8/30/15.
Chunky, drab olive-copper with a beige head that is medium-sized and quickly dissipating.
Fruity (apples, cherries, oranges) hop notes in the nose give way to lightly dirty (yeast?) notes, with light caramel and brown bread maltiness. Thereís some light pine, typical orange rind/grapefruit character and not much, if any brightness.
I donít know if this bottle is just old? I would expect Craft Beer Cellar to keep fresh bottles on hand, but I guess you never know....Lemon-lime citrus with a hard, crystal malt-like texture, scratchy brown bread graininess and loose/low carbonation. Tons of dirtiness/dullness and not a whole lot to get excited about here. Maybe some diacetyl as well? Again, itís hard to feel too bad for breweries that donít date their hoppy beers.

More bottles from Chris Nís Michigan beer tour...THANKS!
Pours a foggy orange with thicker persistent head. Nose and inital taste is a bitter but enjoyable hoppy touch. Nice aftertaste...wish I had more!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; malty though. A very hazy pale burnt orange with off-white head. Smells of caramel with notes of bitter and piney hops in the background. Tastes like it smells, but more bitter than piney, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but underwhelming.
