UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Draft. One of the best IPAs I have ever had. Juicy almost berry-like aroma and flavor. Nectar of the gods. Bottle it was hugely disappointing.

What a surprise. Great, bright single hop IPA. One of the best Dark Horse's I've head, if not the best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is pine, tropical fruit/kiwi/lime and a hint of hop resin. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, a very light undercurrent of sweetness and a very bitter/hop resiny finish.

A nice gift. Pours a cloudy, sediment-laden golden orange with a fairly sizable cream-colored head that settles to a thin ring leaving substantial soapy, sticky lace. Nose is quite floral, piney, lilac, juniper, underlying citrus, with some sweet caramel malt notes. Taste is predominantly bitter, to the point that you know there’s sweetness in there, but it’s basically completely covered up with bitter hop flavor. Medium bodied, creamy, oily, softer carb, with just explosive bright bitterness across the palate leading to a lengthy finish. Some IPAs I prefer colder, but this one benefits from allowing to warm somewhat. What seemed one-dimensional evolves into something quite complex and enjoyable. Crooked Tree’s malt bill is an awesome platform to feature a single hop.

umich03jm (1973) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber-orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Really grabs the glass well. Aroma of tropical fruit, grapefruit, lemons, and light flowers. Taste is very solid too. Mostly tropical fruit with some light grapefruit and flowers too. Lots of caramel malt to back it up. Crisp floral finish, light sweetness, light bitterness. Somewhat oily mouthfeel. Really nice IPA.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/5/2013. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, passionfruit, grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, floral, pine, grass, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes with moderate malt balance. Taste of pineapple, pine, grapefruit, tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, bread, caramel, and floral earthiness. Sizable pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, pine resin, citrus, citrus zest, floral, grass, caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity of hop notes with light-moderate malt balance; with minimal cloying bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. Good balance and complexity of hop flavors with solid malt balance; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
