4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

Draft. Aroma has citrus fruits, caramel malts and heavy bittering hops. Medium hazy amber hue with an average white head with okay lace. Flavor is medium sweet and heavy bitterness. Palate is medium bodied and oily average. Overall a great brew.

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.
