12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a slightly hazy copper orange color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toasted, bready, pale malts, earthy, spicy, citrus,and grassy hops.

Taste: This beer has a nice balance to it. The toasted malts seem to be the most dominant flavor with the hops mildly there and dome bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy malts, some bitterness, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: This is the 2nd of the single hop Crooked Tree pack. I love their take on it, but you can't beat the original. You still have to appreciate single hop beers like this one.

Poured from a bottle, guessing this is about a month old.

Appearance: Very similar to other Crooked Tree/Dekoorc Eert beers. Golden amber, hazy, clearly unfiltered. Head foams out in under a minute.

Smell: Whoa. Very, very vegetal. Burnt toast. Dirty socks. A little unsettling, actually.

Taste: None of the trademark FF flavors- a tiny hint of citrus followed by dirty cotton and old cheese. Not sure how this beer got so funky at 1-2 months old. A very distinct sharp cheddar finish.

Mouthfeel: Same as the other beers in the series. Hard to focus on the mouthfeel with this one, to be honest. Probably the highlight of the beer.

Overall: I feel like I must have gotten a bad bottle. The risks of unpasteurized/unfiltered IPA's mean that you can't guarantee consistency. Because FF is a blend, I suppose that any bad hop in the blend could set off the whole batch.

This pours a semi-cloudy golden amber color with a slight head. The aroma is big and bold with citra hops. The taste is unique with a light yet big bold hoppy taste. It finishes with a bit of a sour pineapple after taste. Another big and hoppy brew from dark horse which won’t let you down.

A: Pours a nice caramel color with some sticky lacing, lots of yeasty sediment at the bottom of the bottle, and a frothy white head.

S: Aroma of earthiness and generally bitter, There is a tinge of garlic in the aroma from the hops along with caramel , pale malt and the normal ipa aromas.

T: Relatively bitter with some of the Falconer Flight characteristics I guess. Mixing light mild onion flavors and some bitter spicy characteristics, I can see why Falconer Flight is not the most prolific of flavor addition hops that are on the market right now. The citrus like characteristics are probably more pleasing to most others , as it also stands for me.

M: Medium body, malty while not too thick at the same time nor too watery. Lets face it, Dark Horse knows what they are doing with Crooked Tree and this is just a further testament to them trying different hops in their core ipa.

O: I can dig it, its definitely more pleasing to me to have this than lets say an underwhelming summer beer addition in a mixed pack. This comes as a four pack mixer of ipa's going after those who like the style and know who Dark Horse is. For the price point, getting a 12 mixed pack of this is tough to beat even though the local where I get this from usually upcharges a little more than my liking for carrying such a variety. I thought the Apollo was my favorite of the group so far.
