Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree IPA is the Michigan brewery's American IPA, with a a crisp and dry hop palate and a lighter malt load than some IPAs. At 6.50% ABV, Double Crooked Tree IPA pours out a clear honey color with a short head that settles quickly. The nose of Crooked Tree is of pine hops and sweet caramel; there's a low note of biscuits, and grapefruit peel hops too. It tastes first of pine hops, then sweeter malts, leading to a perky grapefruit finish. This is a light, well carbonated IPA, and the alcohol is totally masked. We recommend trying this IPA in a pint glass, mug, or stein at 45-50 degrees F. Look for Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree IPA year-round in bottles, growlers, and on-tap. IPAs pair well with complex, strong tastes; try matching Double Crooked Tree IPA with curry or Thai cuisine, peppery, sharp, or pungent cheeses, or poultry and fish dinners.
