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.

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.

A - Pours a hazy orange with a one finger off-white head. Light amount of sticky lacing.

S - Light aroma of citrus and bready malts.

T - Taste is orange and grapefruit with biscuity malts. The finish has a lingering piney aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

O - A nice twist on the oringal Crooked Tree. I've enjoyed all three varieties in the IPA pack. This is tasty beer.
