12oz bottle no date. from the sampler pack, bought for around $20
very orange look, small white head. smell is fruity and woody, with a fair amount of pine. taste is hoppier than normal CT, even though I know it technically isn't. feel is shocking to the tongue; abrasive.

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.

Appearance- orange brown and hazy with plenty of carbonation play, half a finger of velvety eggshell head
Smell- Big citrus notes from the Cascade, tangerine and grapefruit, undertones of pale malts and yeast esters
Taste- light pale malts play with the yeast to give a breadiness and the hops impart a little bite on the finish but with an unpleasant harshness on the tongue after a while
Mouthfeel- smooth medium body with milky finish.
Overall- Interesting take on an IPA that definitely wins on the exploration front, a bottle at a time seems like enough for me, the after bitterness isn't of the best kind

12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present, but it's obviously fresh. Acquired as part of the Dark Horse Crooked Tree variety pack. Excited to try this new variation!
Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours one finger of fluffy creamy white head on top of a luscious bright orange colored body. Murky & unfiltered with lots of sediment suspended in the glass. Thin webbed lacing.
S - Smell is sweet and citric. A lovely showcase for the cascade hops invoking the smell of blood orange and maybe some grapefruit rind. Biscuit malt in the background & lightly floral. Perhaps a touch of alcohol fumes on the nose as well.
T - Not as bitingly hoppy as the original, but again a lovely showcase for the cascade hops. Sweet, juicy, fruity, and bready / malty. Very nicely balanced like it's predecessor.
M - Ridiculously smooth. Creamy. Light to medium bodied. And a bitter / sweet, & dry finish. Lovely.
Overall, a nice worthy successor to the original Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA, not meandering too far in flavor being that they are both brewed with cascade hops. I am definitely looking forward to trying the remaining two beers from this variety pack, and if they're anywhere as good as these others, I don't see why they shouldn't continue to produce these beers year-round.
