Review 33: Dark Horse Crooked Tree


Review 33
Dark Horse Crooked Tree: 6% abv

Obviously this is obviously an IPA. Now for my rant: For the first time ever, there was no abv rating on the bottle. This makes me believe that Dark Horse wants me to have trouble reviewing it, but they were clearly stopped! Thanks to Matt Goerlich for donating to this review and also contributing to it. You'll find his commentary quite...insightf...ul. The nose on this beer, Matt has observed, is like a "crooked tree would smell like".
Besides that great observation, the nose is floral, with lemon, pine, grapefruit, honey, strawberry, and pineapple. It is a great nose from an IPA. The taste is complex and balanced, and very enjoyable. The taste has citrus, lemon, pine, hops, honey, juniper berry, wheat, vanilla, and grapefruit. The finish has lemon, is bitter, and tastes of hops, and is medium in length.
This IPA is very well balanced and complex, and is probably one of the best IPAs we've tasted to date. For that reason, it will be given a very good rating. Thanks again Matt.
Score: 9.0/10
