Beer added by: Rifugium on 09-28-2012

Made with the malt base of Crooked Tree IPA and hopped with Cascade, a classic American hop. This beer is much more on the citrus, or “grapefruit” side of what IPA’s have become known as in American Craft Brewing.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and grapefruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a better hop presence in the smell in my opinion.

Focusing on the classic American hop variety, the "Cascade" version of IPA results in a straight-forward taste of white grapefruit and orange peels. Light grass and pine round out the caramel, biscuit, and malty-sweet body.

And like the original Crooked Tree and the Citra variety, "Edacsac"pours with a sturdily hazy, deep amber glow and a non-filtered, hoppy haze that's careful not to strip the aroma and taste. Capped by a creamy off-white head, the foam retains and laces just as well as the regular Crooked Tree.

Straight up grapefruit- pulp, pith, juice and all becomes the center stage of aroma. Its then up to the supporting biscuit malt, thin caramel and honey to provide a suppole balance all the while, give the fruit flavors a candied-malt effect. The slight resinous aroma of pine needles rise a bit as the beer warms.

Caramel, biscuit, and bread crust give an early impression of sweetness, but then is layered upon by the sharp grapefruity character of Cascade hops. Red grapefruit, white grapefruit and all parts of the plants anatomy is represented in the ale's citrusy taste. The lightly acidic and cleanly lingering taste shies from fruit esters or yeast spice to the the attention on the grapefruit-type bitterness in aftertaste.

Medium bodied due to just enough malt structure ensures the beer's creamy carbonation, at least to start. The beer quickly turns toward a middle plate filled with malty sweetness turn turns malty-dry, and then dryly bitter to close. Light rosy-warm alcohols warms the palate and accompanies an echo of grapefruit in memory.

Again, Edacsac is a delightful IPA that exhibits what's best about the ever-charming "Cascade" hops. Its boldly grapefruity, even if the malts try to balance the beer a little to much.

Had on tap tonight at Sticks and Stones Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint glass a bright looking burnt orange with a great looking one finger sticky white head,great clarity and even better defination to the head.Cascades are aroma hops but they don't really hit ya here,yeah there is citrus and resiny element but it's not quite as big as I was lookin for.Flavors of a lightly sweet biscuit base with a not so aggressive citric hop profile,now don't get me wrong it has nice hop flavors but to me they are a little subdued in nature.All in all it's pretty good,something drink all night,other than that it's just above average,I hate saying that with this being one of my favorite home state breweries.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Finishing my jaunt through the single-hop Crooked Tree fest. This stuff pours a clear amber topped by a finger of wan cream foam. The nose comprises ruby red grapefruit zest, lightly-earthy greens, candied orange peel, and toffee. The taste generally brings in more of the same, though the grapefruit isn't quite as bright, the toffee has transmogrified into more of a caramel flavor, and some pine resin is tossed in for good measure. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, another tasty IPA, not quite as good as the Citra, in my opinion, but still pretty strong.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into an US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, strong citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong caramel and citrus. Then a strong grassy hops presence comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a very nice IPA to drink for a while.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Crooked Tree single-hopped with Cascade.

Served in a nondescript pint glass, a hazy amber color with a small cap of white head that retained as a wisp of sea foam and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma was expectedly hop-driven, citrusy, grassy, touches of biscuity malts coming through. Cascade hops showcased in the taste, citrusy, markedly bitter, but a solid biscuity malt base took the edge off a bit. A nice IPA overall, medium body, smooth, and pretty drinkable; not too strong for an imperial.

Pours a chill-hazed amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Good lacing & head retention, stays fairly hazy

S: Leafy hops & breadyness

T: Follows the nose, dryness as well up front. Fairly astringent as this warms, a little bit of woody & herbal hops, some pear notes, more dryness. Finishes with little bit of pear, woody hops, breadyness & dryness

MF: Medium body, subtle carbonation, okay balance

Drinks alright, just not in my wheelhouse, my least favorite in this mixed pack

Hey what's an edac sac? Is that a bag that a Bigfoot carries?

Very muddy and cloudy looking beer. Earthy profile. Minimal citrus tones that are an accent to the earthiness and not the defining feature. Smooth feel. It's okay, but it isn't anything very noteworthy. Easy drinker.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 4/5/2013. Pours hazy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon peel, floral, caramel, grass, bread, and light pine. Damn nice aromas with big citrus hop presence and moderate malt balance. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, caramel, biscuit, pine, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, floral, grass, caramel, and pine on the finish for a good bit. Very nice hop flavor balance and complexity; with moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice single hop IPA. All around nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Modest bar-pour head. Settles to a single layer of bubbles. Cloudy, dark gold color. Leaves a ring of streaky lace.

Clean and fresh aroma of newly picked hops. Good crystal malt background without too much sweetness.

The taste first reminds me of dried apricots. It's not sweet but it's not dry neither until the swallow, then it is all hop with a very strong dollop of hop bitterness. Good body with a fine and plentiful level of carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

LOOK: 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazed orange color with some sediment. An inch of white foam forms and recedes to the edges. A fair amount of lace is left behind this well hopped ale.

SMELL: Cascade hops all day, floral, pine, citrus, orange. There is a sweet candy like malt impression on the nose as well.

TASTE/FEEL: More great cascade flavors of dusty herb, pine and grapefruit. This is an American hop explosion. Has a prickly mouth feel that is quite nice. Bitterness is moderate, doing a good job at balancing and pretty much stopping soon past that. I like the earthy flavor of the cascade, it has that trademark citrus note then dries out to pine, herb, dirt and grass. The malt flavor is toasted, with notes of nuts and caramel.

This is a good single hop beer from Dark Horse. In many ways Cascade is still a workhorse hop in the states, and there is good reason why; Great aroma and solid flavor come from these little green cones. Edacsac Dekoorc Eert is an enjoyable IPA, more please!

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, pale, caramel coloring with some sediment settling throughout, and a low profile, clingy, white head. Aromas of rich caramel, tart grapefruit, lemon zest, and some subtle piney notes. Flavors are tart sweet and bitter forward, with a heavy dose of grapefruit and lemon blending with dry grass, pine tassels, and basil, all on a toffee sweet backbone. The beer has a smooth, mid-bodied feel, with a tangy sweet and citrus aftertaste. The finish is smooth, slick, and has a citrus tart and sweet linger.

-Unfiltered ipa with cascade hops.

A: Creamy light tan head sits above a brightly orange colored body that has a dense transparency. A steady rise of effervesce with a weak show of lacing. Coverage sticks around well into the drink. Hazy, but hardly any indication of unfiltering.

S: Soft aroma of fresh, citrus, could of been stronger, no real malt support or presence. meh.

T: A bit owfwashy citrus at first. The malting is shallow the hopping linear, stale citrus, some toasted character but not much. Toasted citrus peel, but hardly a saving grace.

M: Frothy mouthful, thin bodied, feels washy, dry, high rate of carbonation but not particularly crisp. Finishes washy, weak.

O: Coarse flavorless hopping, shallow malting, no nose support, feels a bit washy at times. Disappointing, had thier FF Dekoorc Eert which i though was very good, perhaps a bit underated, this was the danny devito to arnold schwarzennegger (ff) in twins.

A - A touch lighter than the Crooked Tree IPA, with a solid rocky 1/2 inch of head. Very sticky lacing.
S - Somewhat malty at this point the hops are rather citrus like but the balance is great.
T - Has a nice bitter hop bite especially well after the finish which comes off very herbal. Malts seem to be very smooth never getting in the way. Still surprised of the bite 3 months after release.
M - Just like the Crooked Tree IPA it's very hoppy, balanced, but seems to be too bitter.

Overall the hops really do cling to the palate quite a while which may be good for some but I like more balanced with my malts.

Pours a hazy medium brown copper with a frothy half inch cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving modest lacing.

Resin, dank hops, onion, fresh cut grass, and sharp citrus form the initial aroma. There's a bit of an earthy, herbal character that accompanies a slight caramel backbone. Pine surfaces late, along with minerally notes.

Flavor reveals more caramel malt sweetness than anticipated at the start, becoming toasted and bready mid palate, with light bitterness rounding out the finish. Underpinnings of tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, earthy, minerally hops, and resin add complexity. The balance is fairly malty and resiny.

Body is moderate to perhaps a tad full, with carbonation a touch on the low side, and slight astringency.

Aroma displayed far more hop character than flavor. Wish citrus notes were more pronounced, but a good way to find out that cascade are fairly resiny, grass, and mineral dominant. That earthiness at the finish is just offputting. Too strong.

Thanks to Chris for this one. The pour is literally identical to the FF version of this beer; no surprise there as the malt bill is probably the exact same. The head on the Cascade version seems to be a little more lively, but it still recedes to a skin pretty quickly and still shows no traces of lacing on the glass at all.

Leafy and lightly floral hops crowd the aroma; pretty fresh and zesty. Very mild fruity character in the aroma, maybe even more so than the Falconers Flight version. Should I be surprised by that? A light juiciness is a nice byproduct of the citric character, a good way to cut through some of the strong florals. The grapefruits, leaves, and caramel malts work pretty well together here.

And again, like the other versions, the caramel malt is pretty prominent and gives a strong, sweetness that works allows for a nice balance through and through. I've gotta say, I'm already liking the way this one smells a bit more than the Falconers Flight version, so I can only hope that it treats my taste buds just as well.

After the first sip, I get a good dose of some peppery spice, leaves, grass, and very light florals. At first, the citrus seems muted, but it comes in stronger and stronger with each successive sip. Bitter citrus pith, zesty orange peels, and light grapefruit rind. Bitterness hits just moments in and remains moderately heavy for the duration of the sip.

Needless to say, even the citrus characteristics are playing towards the bitter side rather than the sweet and juicy side, but there's nothing wrong with that - the lump caramel malts keep everything in check and provide a solid backbone of balance to bring it all together. Medium bodied, seems a little more carbonated than the FF Dekoorc Eert for a more crisp mouth feel.

I liked this one better than the FF variant, but not quite as much as the Citra variant that was enjoyed after. Cascade hops are very versatile, and they can certainly stand well on their own. I wasn't expecting so much citrus, but there was a good amount of bitter peel and pith notes. Drinkable and enjoyable overall.

A: This poured a nearly opaque light mahogany with thick off white head and some sediment.

M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Light body.
D: This was an ok IPA, but the scent and taste were not anything great. The body wasn't quite right either, and the finish was a little rough. Not bad, but not a very good brew.

I picked up a bottle of Dark Horse's Edacsac Dekoorc Eert last week for $1.99 at The Lager Mill. I've had Crooked Tree many times, but I've never had any beers from single hop series and I'm interested to see how they turn out, so lets see how it goes. No visible bottling date. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks ok, it's odd looking, but it's also a little eye catching. It poured a very cloudy amber orange color that took on more of a brighter amber orange color when held to the light with two fingers worth of off white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some patchy and spotty lacing behind. This was a decent looking beer,but the color wasn't as nice a I was hoping for.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and they impart a nice citrus rind aroma that seems to stick out the most and there's some light floral hop aromas showing up in the background. Up next comes some doughy yeast which leads right into the malts which impart some sweet malt, bready and bread crust like aromas. This beer had a nice aroma, the hop profile was nice.

T- The taste seems to be be similar to the aroma, but lighter and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with malts being the first to show up this time and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time they stick out a little more and there's still some doughy yeast showing up in the background. Up next comes the hops which are a little on the lighter side and they impart a lighter citrus rind and floral hop flavors with the citrus rinds still sticking out the most. On the finish there's a slightly higher amount of medium bitterness with malty and citrus rind hop aftertaste. This was a decent tasting IPA, but it was a little too much on the malty side.

M- Smooth, fairly crisp, a little creamy, on the slightly thicker side of being medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. This beer had a nice mouthfeel that worked well with it.

Overall I thought this was a decent beer and a decent example of the style, it seemed to be pretty average for an IPA and instead of letting the hops do all the taking this beer got a little to heavy handed with malts and it didn't let those hops shine through the way they should. This beer had ok drinkability, it was smooth, fairly crisp, a little creamy, slightly filling and the taste didn't do the best job at holding at my attention, I think one is enough for me, I have no urge to drink another one back to back. What I like the most about this beer was the aroma and mouthfeel, to me those were the highlights of this beer. What I liked the least about this beer was the the appearance, taste and drinkability, those were the aspects that held this beer back from being as good as it could be. I wouldn't buy this beer again, I prefer Crooked tree over this. I wouldn't recommend it as a good IPA, but it's worth a try to get a good idea what kind of aspects Cascade hops impart. All in all I just wasn't to into to this beer, it didn't have anything special to it and I didn't find it to be memorable. This isn't a favorite Dark Horse beer and it's pretty average for an IPA. I like the idea behind this beer, but it didn't prove to be as good as Crooked Tree and it left me wanting more, better luck next time guys.

The single hop Cascade variation of Crooked Tree looks similar to the other releases. It’s a very hazy, orange stained gold color. The orange tint becomes more apparent with a little light behind it. An off-white head covers it. It rises to just under a finger in height and sticks around for a while. Lacing was sticky and moderate. Good stuff.

The nose is quite good. It smells nicely balanced. The malt base smells a little sweet, toasted and biscuity. It’s not a bad base. There might be some light caramel, but it doesn’t overwhelm. The hops are very citric. It smells primarily like grapefruit. There might be some pine, as well. With each passing whiff, the hops seem to come through stronger. I like that. Alcohol is there, but isn’t strong. I like it. The hops might be a little one-dimensional, but I’m not complaining.

In trying these Crooked Tree variations, I’ve learned something – it’s tough to screw up Crooked Tree. The flavor here kicks off with a nice mix of toasted malts and biscuity flavors. There might be a little sweet caramel in the house, but it’s subtle and secondary. It’s a nice, sturdy base. The hop flavor is good. It is a nice, strong grapefruit flavor that delivers a bitter kick. There are some piney flavors in the background, but it’s mostly grapefruit. Tastes good! Alcohol is masked well and isn’t all that noticeable. Finishes a little dry with a bitter grapefruit flavor and a touch of biscuit. Good stuff.

The body is medium. It feels nice and smooth. Carbonation is light and soft. Just like the other Crooked Tree varieties, this is an easy-drinking American IPA. Good stuff.

The Cascade variety of Crooked Tree is a nice twist on the original recipe. I’ve actually enjoyed all of them. This one isn’t quite as good as the original recipe or the Citra release, but it’s still impressive. This has been a fun series. Good stuff, Dark Horse!

Foggy bronze under a small, bubbly white head. Earthy citrus and floral hop aromas along with some resin and woody hops, honey, and caramel malt. Dark citrus, earth, grapefruit bitterness...similar to regular Crooked Tree in that it's balanced with a fair amount of bready sweet grain. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated, and pretty crisp. Not bad, but it didn't quite "pop" enough for a Cascade-focused APA. I think the pleasant, grapefuity, floral nature of the hop works better on a lighter malt backdrop.

Light hazelnut honey/amber with tornadic swirls of microparticles from the lack of filtering. The head sits small, at about a half-inch. It really wants to spark out, with its composition of coarser bubble foam. Laces okay.

Ah, the familiar aroma of single Cascade. Bursting bright pine and grapefruit. The single hop showcase brings out swatches of tropical fruits, however, they're mostly non-descript. A hint of orange rind sweetness that matches up well against pale and not-so-pale malts. Light toastiness and hints of caramel from the grain makes for a sweeter toastier cracker. Aromatic, and has that light sweaty dankness to boot.

Blindingly Cascade! Twangy grapefruit and orange rind with pithy citrus notes and palm and pine. Hoppy and bitter upfront with mouth-sucking dryness in the finish. The mid-section carries a little sweetness behind the rugged grain toast. Going back to the finish, Cascade offers a slight hop burn/astringency, but otherwise, cleans up nice. A lot of that caramel malt follows with finishing delivery, but sans the sweetness. They ante'd up on the grain bill to meet a balance in this beer that seems unlikely considering how much of the green stuff made it into the boil. Not saying that this is very hoppy, it's just the limitations of the single hop IPA--and, specifically, Cascade hops.

Bristly feel is a fault of the body. Something needs to smooth this out a little bit more. Carbonation is too low, in turn, where the beer doesn't move around enough in the mouth. Most of the burn felt is from the hops, with a much smaller percentage going to a low level of alcohol.

I love Cascade hops, but I always feel like they need one or two other varietals to push the envelope in the complexity department. Which is to say, they're not fascination on their own... but they're pretty damn tasty.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tulip glass

L - This beer pours amber with golden highlights. It is crystal clear and topped with an inch of beige head that has some staying power.

S - There is some citrus with a lot of pine.

T - The taste has a little citrus starting out. Bitter grapefruit is replaced with a biter pine finish. There is a lingering bitter aftertaste.

F - Medium

O - I enjoy these single hop IPA's. It is a great tool in learning what each hop variety brings to a beer. Cascade seems to be more pine than I like in my beer. It is a good beer but not suited to my palate.

From the IPA snack pack.

Served in a Port City snifter/tulip.

A: Poured a bright orange, extremely murky (unfiltered), with a slight ring posing as a head.

S: Nice hop profile with some fresh clean linen to boot. Understated, yet effective.

T: Pleasant tasting, not nearly as bitingly hoppy as Crooked Tree, yet that shouldn't take away from this at all. Nice balance.

M: Pleasantly bitter and probably the most "gulpable" from the DH IPA pack. Lots of lacing and cushiony carbonation bill.

O: I'd definitely have this again.
