Commenting on hop profile only. For a full review of the beers characteristics based on my opinion see the double crooked tree review.

S= The smell on this one I would say is the most dominate of the three. The FF was very reserved. This is a sort of bright citrus grapefruit in the aroma.

T= Bright grapefruit comes through. Cascades a lot of people don't care for. I myself think they are a great useful overall hop. They are a nice catch all hop with a pleasing flavor and they seem to work well with the malt profile in this beer. Some people would argue they are a bit boring but I think they offer enough interest without blowing your tongue away. They actually seem to dampen the sweetness a little bit in the malt character.

3.41/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into 50W Tulip Glass

A: Hazy neon orange body. Beige colored fizzy head settles quickly leaves small lacing.

S: The cascade hops are very prominent in the waft. Soft banana notes. Lots of orange and lemon citrus. Very floral and reeks of spruce and pine.

T: Initial taste is pine, followed by the cascade hop character. Lemon peel bitterness in the finish. Pretty one-dimensional, which is obviously the goal here.

M: Prickly. Light body. High carbonation. Super oily.

O: I didn't hate it, but I was honestly expecting a bit more. Obviously the intent was something super simple and not complex - but I personally don't love Cascade hops as a main act.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark orange/copper. Very cloudy, non filtered IPA. Nice sized off- white bubbly head, seems like a bigger head than the FF version. Nice lacing.

S: Fairly citrusy with a bit of grassy hops in the mix. That carmel malt backbone creeps in as well with some sweetness.

T: Pretty fresh, fruity and citrus tasting. Way more going on compared to FF. This is more my style of hop profile. The carmel malt backbone provides a nice sweetness that mixes with the citrus and flowery hops. Seems a bit less bitter than FF.

M: Medium body, average carbonation. A bit slick feeling. Feels just like FF.

O: Really good drinkability. I like this one a lot better than FF, I've only had one citra so far, but I remember liking that one the best... Will see with a formal review.

3.81/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a deep hazy orange with a frothy two and a half fingers of beige foam.

Smell: Very earthy and vegetal with hints of muted citrus.

Taste: Follows the nose fairly closely. Earthy, leafy, vegetal, and piney with some grapefruit rind and a biscuity caramel malt backbone. Very nicely balanced with a smooth, mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp. Goes down easy.

Overall, this is a pretty solid IPA but I'm not the biggest fan of this particular flavor profile. If you like earthier IPAs then you might dig this. I didn't love this one but I would definitely recommend
giving it a try, if even just to start familiarizing and educating yourself on different hops.

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.

crazy how one different hops makes a beer quite a bit different! this is the normal crooked tree recipie except for the focus was on cascade hops with this one.

appearence was identical. the smell is a lot more earthy and a lot less citrusy with some sweetness in the nose.

the mouthfeel is also less silky and the flavor is also just like the smell, more toned done earthy hops instead of citrus. im hoping this is my least favorite of the crooked tree ipa sampler, still have the citra and the falconers...
