Pours copper with cream head. Aromas of pineapple, citrus, pine, malty backbone, caramel and toffee. Taste is malt, citrus, bitter bite upfront, fades to a much more mellow spruce with some caramel. Decent. Not as good as

Brew_Cat (117) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 6, 2015
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.

dmac (5294) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2015
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.

ClarkVV (5369) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2015
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!

b3shine (7861) - Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2015
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.

jmohno (1482) - Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Pours a light amber with inch head, good lace. Aroma is herbal and almost medicinal, candy toffee malt. Beef jerky soy sauce old hop/poor storage. Bottle conditioned yeast floaties.Powdery resin. Taste has some bite to it, carbonic, citric. Peppery herbal hop character. Resiony finish. Dry toffee mild sweetness. Some citrus but mainly herbal peppery, kind of medicinal though, with beef jerky soy sauce-- vegetable dms?. Drank this slightly cool, I will have to try this again, Ill have to leave the yeast next time.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Cloudy dark orange to dark amber pour with a two finger, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, fruity floral, caramel, light toffee, doughy bread, biscuit, melon and sweet floral. Flavor is citrus, sharp doughy bread, toasty grain, melon, light passion fruit, light toasted bread, fruity-citrusy floral and light woody pine. Medium body, dry entry; medium, very sharp carbonation, dry, slightly syrupy finish with a substantial hop acid bite. Good stuff overall, quite sharp in the AA department.

This is the second of these single hop Crooked Trees Iíve had and neither has been as good as just Crooked Tree. This is a very cloudy and dark orange brew with just a few whisps of foamy head. The Falconerís Flight hop seems very mild in the nose but the full body of this beer and a touch of sweetness lend it a nice juicy orange character once tasted. This is a solid IPA, nothing overwhelming. I like this better than the Apollo one because the sweetness here comes of as more pleasant rather than heavy.
