COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "the Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you’ll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, they’re just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBU’s

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clouded brown, sticky tan head. Aroma of caramel, bread, pine, fig, brown sugar. Taste of same with big booze across entire palate. Finish is bitter with some citrus juice. Malt-forward IPA for sure. That’s how you get booze though...at 13%.

pawos (213) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Kolor bursztynowy. W aromacie słodko-chmielowo. Są nuty ciasteczkowe, kandyzowanych owoców i toffi z jednej strony, a ananas, zapachy igliwia i drzewa z drugiej. W smaku pełne, słodkawe. Goryczka wysoka ale dobrze zbalansowana. Wyraźny posmak chmielowy

Likierek chmielowy. W aromacie żywice i ciasteczkowo - karmelowy słód, do tego świeża nuta leśna, nieco ziołowości. W smaku podobnie, gęsto, leśnie, nieco żółtych owoców w tle, goryczka duża, ale krótka, szlachetna. Alko zdążyło się schować wystarczająco, delikatniutkie rozgrzewanie. Lubię takie!

Great double IPA. You can definitely sense the % alcohol (although the description said 13.5% and the bottle only says 12%), but it's a nice hoppy hit and still drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure about the age of this beer; overwhelming caramel on the nose makes me think it’s not the freshest bottle available. (Never sure about an IPA whose description tells you aging it makes it better.) Hops are almost an afterthought, with the massive malt front making up most of the beer. Mostly caramel, honey, sticky bun, maybe a little nutty undercurrent, with the hops relegated to a slight orange-tinted middle and a piney but manageable finish. IBUs add a nice postscript, but this beer is shockingly malt-centric, with a boozy fade that assures you you’re indeed drinking a 12% brew. More a strong ale than an IPA, but after a pint you won’t give a damn.

12 ounce bottle. Copper color topped by a frothy beige head that dissapates quickly. Big boozy malt nose. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor has a huge bitter hop component. Intense and personal. Lots of body, lots of malt, lots of hops. Excess at its finest.

30cl van de tap bij Zeezicht, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 13,6% Uitgetapt in Zeezicht glas Uiterlijk: donkeroranje met redelijke schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: mooie fruitige neus van lychee, smaak is tropisch fruit, grapefruit, snoepjes, flinke bitter, warm van de alcohol maar niet overheersend Conclusie: echt een stevige super ipa

a nice balanced beer, great fresh flavor. But at 12% alcohol may be my last for the day... well, perhaps until this evening. Nice Carmel notes and strong hops but not too citrusy. Highly recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brigg (691) - New York, USA - APR 7, 2017
(Bottle) Cloudy copper-brown body with a medium beige-cream head. Aroma of malt and tropical fruit; grapefruit, papaya, pine, brown sugar. Medium body, creamy. Flavor is very sweet, malty with citrus and pine hop finish; lots of floral notes and fruit; alcohol is noticeable with warm finish.

bp (926) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Draft: pours clear dark amber with a thin white head, hoppy aroma and very hoppy favor, a touch sweet and a bit sticky, dry finish
