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).

Dam good beer! Hopslam what?? This is much better underrated by others. I dont feel im being generous with the 5 try it and you will agree. Amber color little head when served at temp hop taste is present but not as dry of an after taste like other "hopalicious" beers. I highly recomend hunting this one down.

This is my favorite Double IPA Hands Down! 13% ABV hits you pretty hard. Great balance between the Hoppiness and the sweetness due to the high ABV.
