BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dark Horse Brewing Company

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).

A: This poured a nearly opaque light copper with a little white head.
S: It smelled like sugary figs and candied cherries and faint copper and butter scotch.
T: It tasted like candied apricots and herbal hops, with some artificial strawberry and unripe pineapple. It had a somewhat clean sugary aftertaste with lingering bitterness.
M: It was thick and chewy with a little carbonation. Very full body.
D: This was not nearly as good as I expected. The scent and taste were super sweet with little bitterness. The body was over the top, and the finish was a little harsh. So it wasn't easy to drink. I'm not impressed at all.
