This is Dark Horse’s Crooked Tree IPA done up with citra hops. As I quote from my notes, “Freakin’ fantastic! Those citra hops are amazing.” Seriously. I was hooked on it from the first sip.

Artic eert pours a cloudy hefelike orange straw color with light foam. (I guess I could have just said it’s hazy.)

I can’t express how much I enjoy the aroma of tropical fruit & citrus. Guava and pineapple dominate over the citrus notes but its such an incredible, vibrant mix. Hop forward flavor. Lightly bodied with a slight smack of bitterness and this great, intense flavor.

While the beer itself is mildly bitter it is intensely flavorful. I’d say it’s almost sweetly bitter with the tropical fruits on it balancing out the bitterness. Loved every sip. Citralicious!

On-tap at Hopcat

A - Pours a cloudy (not sure I've ever seen a Dark Horse beer that wasn't cloudy) orange brown with one finger of off-white head. Good retention and nice lacing.

S - Huge citrus hop presence. Smells about as good as Zombie Dust. Very little malt in the nose.

T - Similar to smell, a citrus hops showcase with just enough malt to provide a little body. I like how Citra brings both citrus zest and some sweet citrus pulp to the flavor. Finishes dry.

M - Medium mouthfeel with earthy bitterness throughout.

O - I like regular Crooked Tree, but this is definitely a step above that for me. I'd love to see this become a DH regular.
