I know it's not kosher to rate a beer a perfect 5, but I have no other choice! This, to me, is the perfect beer! It has a great citrus/piney beginning with a perfectly malty backbone that slides down the back of your tongue until your stomach is in a euphoric state! This IPA is the ultimate IPA and if you haven't tried it, you are truly missing out! I don't know if there is a brewery with a more well rounded selection of beers!

A simply beautiful IPA. Pours a uniquely orange-copper color with a two finger head that fades to a nice frothy cap which lasts throughout. Each sip renews the cap. Slight carbonation that lasts for the duration. Flavor matures as it sits in the glass. Wonderful aroma that isn't overdone as some IPAs can be. Not too floral. I've had some IPAs that are killer as far as taste goes but are nearly ruined by the floral aroma. Almost smells sugary without tasting as such. A little malty with a hint of caramel. Flavor stays on the back of the tongue but doesn't ruin the palate. Few IPAs are better and/or more balanced than this one. Very reminiscent of its sister beer, Double Crooked Tree, but not such a kick in the ass. Definitely one to have two or three of without feeling guilty. Can't find anything negative to say about this guy. Highly recommend.

I'm insulted the "pros" gave this an 89! Makes me really question the ratings here.

Anyways, this is by far my favorite beer and I've tried hundreds of craft beers. The smell is so amazing I cant even describe. In fact just try it for yourself. Great beer!!
