This was a good beer. Super hoppy with great hop aroma. The taste was also that of a hopped up IPA. The fact it is unfiltered showed a lot of hop residue inside the floating around the glass. It is stingy and has a big bite. The bitter factor played a role for me. The alcohol is definitely detectable. It is a strong beer and has a strong taste. Good beer for an IPA lover.

Decent IPA but i would be better if the hops were more upfront. Very drinkable beer though!

If I'm not drinking Two Hearted, I'm drinking Crooked Tree. If I'm not drinking Hopslam, I'm drinking Double Crooked Tree.

L: Consumed from a Spiegelau glass: pours copper with thick, white head. Great lacing.

S: Perfect balance of hops

T: Everything I want in an IPA - balance of hops, malt; alcohol doesn't distract. Dry-ish, but not too dry finish. Great hop bitterness.

F: Smooth with moderate carbonation

O: Great balance in everything.

On tap at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Poured into half pint, this beer is orange-brown with a white head and lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops. Flavor is similar with a little malt sweetness that is quickly overwhelmed by the hop bitterness. Dry hop bitter finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation.
