IPA Laundry Fest Part One- Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree India Pale Ale
This beer looks like freshly pulped apple cider, so I expected a dense, flavorful experience as soon as I began pouring this bad boy. Sticky hops, malty to the extent that the word 'enzymic' popped into my head, and slightly woody. 13.6% alcohol content is masked by the flavors, to the point that I didn't realize the ABU was that high until I looked at the bottle halfway through. This is a thick one, and definitely for beer enthusiasts only, which is pretty standard for double IPAs. I like it, but I wish it was cheaper (I paid $4 in store for this 12 ounce bottle, and have seen similar prices in the Chicago area), but you certainly get a quality product with Crooked Tree.What you have here is a powerful, heady brew. Don't operate machinery.
Side note: Not a fan of the label, does someones nephew do this shit on MS Paint?
