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 youll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, theyre just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBUs

12 oz bottle, says it ages well but IPAs really dont. Pours into my American pint glass a clear orange/reddish brown with a thick foamy off white head. The head sticks a good deal but doesnt leave a large amount of lacing. The smell is exceptional here. It is bright and hoppy, but also with a ton of malt. It smells very sweet with orange, citrus, and grassy vegetal hops. This is one HEAVY beer. The anti-establishment beer. It is a DIPA to the max, almost barleywine territory. The hops are super orange/grapefruity and piney and very bitter. The malt is thick and biscuity. There is also a ton of caramel flavor here. The mouthfeel is super thick, far more than many russian imperial stouts I have had. But the carbonation is there. The alcohol is evident in the taste and how you feel after plunging through one of these but for the most part the alcohol is masked well. If you like everything double, for real double, this is for you. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-12-2010 21:15:26

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

dnstone (3135) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Murky, hazed apple cider-like color with and off white head. Dulled hop and cardboard aroma. Sweet malty flavor, with nice balanced piney-earthy hop character. I can tell this beer was great but it has definitely aged which has effected it; would love to try it fresh. Notes: Bottle picked up on MA visit, Mar '17. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. No date. Pours amber, iridescent, big white head. Very fruity aroma. Lychee, sweet fruits, malts, grapes, berries, fresh plums and honey. At fist, briefly sweet, than dry and bitter. Well hidden alcohol. Thick, low carbonation. I think that unfortunately this bottle wasnt fresh anymore.

C. Pours a clear amber color with white head. If you let it warm up a bit, it isnt quite as harsh. Full flavored, but still harsh. Would probably really like the single

slowrunner77 (11662) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Pine wood and sweet fruit from the aroma and flavor. Pretty bitter, and pretty sweet. Says you can age it, but I wouldnt. Ill get a barleywine if thats what I want. Good fresh, though.

Reddish brown pour with a lasting foam. Lots of pine, resin, and tropical fruits. The flavor is almost sticky from the hops with a long dry finish.

CraftBeerNick (2381) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Tap at BeerTemple, 16th February 17. Pours an orange brown no head really. Aroma is caramel, malt, sweet. Taste is boozy, sweet, malt, caramel, a bitterness kicks in, more booze and heat. Heavy going beast.
