Hazy dark orange to copper pour with a tree finger, creamy to chunky off white head. Aroma is bright citrus, big pine, guava, under ripe melon, light caramel, biscuit, bread, sweet grass and a hint of strawberry banana puree. Flavor is caramel, sweet cereal, biscuit, toffee, dull melon, bitter citrus, sharp resinous pine and a little passion fruit. Medium body, creamy to syrupy entry, syrupy to dry middle, medium sharp carbonation and dry finish with a decent hop acid bite. Good stuff overall, very piney without being to sharp, harsh, or dry.

Oh ho ho, by naming these beers backwards, Dark Horse has made them sound like they are some crazy Necronicon shit. Eat your fucken heart out, HP Lovecraft! You can go on w/ your nearly unreadable but oddly enduring horror stories and the mad brothers at Dark Horse can take care of naming the beers. Regardless of nomeclature, this is a pretty solid IPA, with a nice hop profile that’s maybe a bit too sweet for my tastes. It’s orange in the glass, quite cloudy w/ a foarmy head. The apollo hop isn’t very aggressive in terms of bitterness which makes for a nicely drinkable beer w/ tutt-fruity tropical fruit notes and some floral and pine notes around the corners. This is a solid beer overall but nothing jumps out at me as particularly vibrant or great. I can take it or leave it I guess. Also, it took me like seven tries to spell out Crooked Tree backwards so I had to venture to the dark corners of my soul to find it in the database.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, dark orange fading to an opaque amber at the center of the glass. Some flecks of yeast visible at the edges. Aromas of sweet tropical fruit, caramel malt, some alcohol. Tastes similar. A heavier malt flavor than I would prefer. Moderately bitter. Medium bodied, average carbonation, bitter finish.

574deadzone (1211) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Pours Crooked Tree colored (amber orange) with a very tall and rocky cream-colored head that settles slowly and leaves some big clumpy lace. Nose involves herbal minty stuff, hints of dankness, light lemon, some pine, some toffee. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, medium action, fairly oily, with a drying toasty and bitter finish. Pretty darn tasty as Crooked Tree is, but hard to necessarily figure out what the Apollo hallmarks are.

On tap at the brewery. Pours Amber with an off-white head. Citrus aroma. The flavor is well balanced with orange pith and resin notes. Smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Overall this was a good drinkable IPA.

Light amber, big soapy bubbles/foamy light head, good lace, no yeast pour. Low aroma, mineral, slight floral, big disappointment. Taste is medium light sweet toffee malts, some hop citrus, very slight fruit. Tastes like a malty ipa. I don’t know which single hop ipa is more disappointing, I guess this one because it seems the yeast gives a soy sauce beef jerky vegetable thing to this beer, this one doesn’t as Ive poured it off the yeast, yet there is next to no hop character. Moderate bitter, more of a neutral hop with a more malty than average character. I think their labels are kind of messy, their artistic expression is somewhat interesting but sloppy
