Grrr…I tried to get a good picture of the lacing but it was elusive.  It did force me to take  a few quick, successive sips, though, which is dangerous.  This bad boy packs a whollop of a punch with an ABV of 13.6%…drinker beware. 

D.Jones brought home the Double Crooked Tree I.P.A. the other day for us to try.  We’ve enjoyed other beers from Dark Horse Brewing, including their Scotty Karate Scotch Ale, the Reserve Special Black Bier, and of course, the Crooked Tree I.P.A.  This one is, well, a doubled-up version of the Crooked Tree, and it doesn’t disappoint.  Tons of hops provide the citrusy, crisp flavor you would expect, and it’s dangerously drinkable.   We were both big fans of the Double Crooked Tree I.P.A.  D.Jones is often disappointed by beers that he expects to have the huge hop flavor and don’t deliver.  This one delivers.   I mentioned that I thought it was “hot” as in, you could tell the alcohol content was high.  Doug disagreed at first and then added “no, you’re right.  It’s boozy.  It’s balanced and boozy.”  He liked the sweet finish from the malts, which is also where that alcohol content comes from.  So bottom line…we loved it.  Mmm…  I’m getting thirsty.
