First attempt at a formal review

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass, limbo ipa glass to be precise
A: Copper, dark bronze, very hazy almost non translucent with a thin head, very little lacing left on glass
S: Fruity and tropical, mango, citrus, and floral
T: Strong fruity and floral hops with hints of pine and malt, ending with slightly bitter and lingering fruit aftertaste
M: Slight carbonation, dry
O: Very excellent single ipa, I have tried more then should have in the past month or so. Very drinkable low abv at 6.5, perfect blend of hop character with floral notes and slight bitter kick, enjoyed very much, first I've had from Dark Horse, can't wait to try what else they have to offer.

Crooked Tree pours a cloudy bronze color, with a small lacing head. There is a nice floral aroma. The taste is balanced, but still has a nice hoppy bite. Very very drinkable, very smooth, yet still very flavorful. Overall it's easy to drink and favorable.
