12oz bottle into a globe. Purchased at Tiffany's in K-Zoo.

I've had this beer several times but only a few super fresh bottles. This qualifies, so it's time to put in a rating.

Looks decent in the glass, but I've seen better. Brownish orange with just a ring of head. Just a bit off, but I see where Double crooked tree gets it's brown color.

Smells nice, caramel and biscuit malt with a nice bouquet of citrus (orange) and some perfume.

Taste is good, malt is certainly present with biscuit. Sweet but a weird touch of tea-like flavors. Nice citrus hoppiness. Peaches. Orange. Dry finish, little lingering bitterness, but a good amount of IBUs.

Mouthfeel is overcarbed, but body is where I like it, just north of water.

Drinkability is good. Overall a good American IPA but there are better. I love Dark Horse's dark beers - this is just a bit better than the average. Now, if you double the hops and malt, we've got a different story to talk about.

4.38/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

huge head. foamy and white.
typical IPA aromas, but nothing stand-out. kind of a bland smell to the brew....
a little sweet on the tongue at first, then some caramel malt, and the slight hop bitterness hits as it drains.... very good taste with some sweetness.
overall, very good. another new Midwest brew for me. lots of taste (as opposed to the west coast bitter) but starting to see a definite trend... maybe that's why the west coast began doing bitter....?
