Bottled 01/19/15. Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

L- Deep amber, good clarity, two finger slightly off white head that dissipated quickly to a thin film.

S- Citrus, floral, alcohol is apparent, some unripe peach, decent caramel note, that hoppy sort of bubblegum aroma.

T- Mostly floral and citrus, hefty amount of alcohol on the tongue but no real throat burn, a slight yeasty flavor, the finish is pretty bitter.

F- Lightly syrupy, not bad for such high alcohol.

O- A pretty good beer for how much alcohol there is but it's just a bit too big for what I'm looking for in an Imperial IPA. I've had this on tap before and the alcohol wasn't as noticeable but I find that to be the case with all beers. I also find the hop profile a bit typical in the same way as I find regular Crooked Tree. Still I would recommend people try this and I'd even pick up more of it if it weren't so expensive compared to something like Hopslam. I think if they lowered the alcohol to 8-10% it would be a great improvement.

For me, this is right up there with Hopslam.
