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.

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.

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.

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: 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!

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.

3.05/5  rDev -19.3%

-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.
