3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. The pour on this is a darker orange with a nice thick white head that leaves a gorgeous lace when it fades down to a thin film. The aroma ia more of a sweet faint hoppiness and more of a maltiness. There is a little bit of a sourness, maybe a bit of bitterness that’s built up on the back end of the nose. The flavor is a little sweet on the front end. It’s got a little bit of that malty character and a subtle fruitiness. The hops are a little more hidden, and also a bit grassy. The mouth feel is thin, but the aftertaste lingers beautifully, and holds a great dryness that I love to see in an IPA

From Flandersned...Thanks, Steve. Stored well. Has held up well despite being about 8 months old. Nice slightly orange gold. Nose is interesting rustic, spicy hops. Solid IPA of course and the hops are definitely unique. Liked this more than the Cascade version...cool to try.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks tomer. Cloudy amber blond. Sweet caramel, soft, fruity hoppiness. Old hoppy bitterness, a little green/ cucumber taste. Smooth, full-bodied, slightly sweet, hoppy finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with a very large frothy tan splotchy lacemaker. Aroma is dusty and floral with pale toasted malt. Taste trumps aroma with caramel, earthy and floral hops, bready malt and a sweet and moderate bitter conclusion.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: mostly opaque, cloudy amber with a weak, small, gray-tinted head that sits on top, thin & soapy without much action. Aroma is muted; herbal, white pepper-y hops, slight cat pee, a touch of pine, mild hop oil, a hint of grapefruit, & some sticky caramel notes. Taste is slightly watered down with herbal hops, white pepper, mild ash, some pine, light grapefruit peel, & a big caramel & toasted bread, malt finish. The lesser of the Crooked Tree variants. Decent, but nothing to write home about.
