A: Medium brown with a bit of orange tint. Half finger head.

S: Unlike others, I actually get mango and peach in the nose. I like IPAs that smell like this. Must be the type of hops used.

T: Hmm... too much malt for me up front, but finishes with a bit of hop bitterness. Mango and peach again. Maybe a bit of orange and grape fruit. Not much pine.

M: Good carbonation up front - but it disappears quite quickly. Medium body.

O: Very solid IPA that is not hop forward. I am not sure if I love this, but it's very very solid.

12 oz. poured into a Stone Old Guardian Tulip on April 27th, 2012.

A - Nearly identical to Double Crooked Tree - pours a dirty, hazy, toffee-brown coloring. But the haze never really leaves and there's definitely less carbonation and retention on this one. Weird.

S - Light waft of white bread, floral and citrus characters, touch of caramel malts underneath. Not particularly robust.

T- Front palate tangerines and banana peel. Subtle transition into a mid palate malt bill, with further bready soft malts. Rear palate of hop bitterness fades into the aftertaste.

M- Light-medium body. Good carbonation. Decently smooth. Lightly dry finish. No heat presence.

D - Very easy to see how this morphs into the big brother double version. Easy drinker and good alternative to FFF in my neck of the woods.
