3.24/5 rDev -18.8%
Dark red caramel color. Looks very appealing. Did a vertical tastin with the other crooked trees. Very very malty smell. Overly malt flavor with a slight citrus finish. Easy drinking beer, but I don't see this as an IPA. Leaves a bitter finish in the end. Least favorite Crooked Tree beer of the 4.

3.56/5 rDev -10.8%
Beer is dark amber. There is a smallish off-white head. Decent retention, slight lace.
Smell is surprisingly malty, a biscuity scent. Grass and a bit of citrus.
Taste contains some pine, grassy flavours and some citrus. A fair bit of caramel and biscuit malt. Fairly bitter. Stronger hop flavour than a typical English IPA, but the flavour profile still makes me think of that style. Not your typical juicy American IPA.
Medium bodied, strongly carbonated. Somewhat irritating.
Overall, fine but somewhat disappointing. There is a date on the bottle but it has been wiped off a bit so all I can tell is it was bottled this year (phewf!). Not sure if it is old but it is not a great example of an American IPA.
