BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dark Horse Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double the flavor and alcohol. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "The Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you'll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us).

Color is a dark ruby with a thin layer of white head. Aroma of pine hops and malty caramel. Taste is similar to the smell with a malty backbone and pine and citrus hops. Alcohol isn't too overwhelming. Sticky mouthfeel. Overall very similar to a barleywine and unfortunately reminds me a bit of cough syrup. Glad I got to try it, but also glad I got only a single bottle.

Orange penny copper.
Strong citrus and boozy bite in the nose.
Sweet orange rind. Lots of sweet up front lots of bitter on the tail finish.
Syrupy mouth feel.
So smooth it's hard to tell it's 12%
