Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Never drops bright, slightly above average head retention & lacing

S: Woody & herbal hops, breadyness & pears

T: Follows the nose, some grapefruit as well. Dryness & pears, some breadyness as well & herbal hops. Finishes dry with herbal hops

Medium body, subdued carbonation, okay balance

Drinks alright, nothing special though. This mixed pack was pretty disappointing, I really wonder when the store got these beers?

A decent, refreshing, dry APA. Great flavor, pleasant aroma, and a pleasing finish. It sits a little flat but that does not detract from the taste.

FF Beer.

Second of the series.

Look - Pours a murky copper with a two finger off white head. Carbonation is on moderate. Looks attractive and on point for the style. Leaves not a spot of lacing.

Smell - A predominant malt bomb in this aspect. Grapefruit rinds and pithiness with a large boque of floral attributes. Though highly, HIGHLY malty.

Taste - Highly floral and sprite-esqe. These are some very sweet, flowery hops. The malt meets it at the half-way point and doesn't dominate. Nicely split flavor profile.

Feel - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not much else to say here.

Overall - Not a whole lot going on here. It is a solid easy drinker and worth picking up for a filler beer, but I'm having a hard time extending this review any further.

Poured really cloudy with a copper orange color. Smells were a very mild citrus hops. Had a very off taste, with an aftertaste of burnt rubber. Overall, not impressed.

My first of the single hop Crooked Tree series. Not bad but very mellow. Some light citrusy orange and grapefruit. Very drinkable.
