The beer comes in a cloudy light orange.

The aroma hits of peaches, oranges, tropical, a light crackery malt.

The flavor follows with bright peachy candy, lemon, citrus zest, orange pith, a touch of Juicy Fruit, a crackery malt base with pale ale and some cereal, oats possibly, a light lingering grassy bitterness.

A stellar sessionable hoppy beer.

16 oz. can poured into a snifter. Bright hazy orange body. Nice white head. Great lacing. Smell is all citrus hops. A bit of doughy malts. Taste is just as straightforward. Citrus hops. Light cracker malt. No bitterness. Light body. Soft carbonation. Wonderfully drinkable blonde ale.

From 06/19/15 notes. 16 oz. can poured into a small tulip. Thanks to Palme for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy pale yellow color with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Lots of citra, citrus hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, lemon zest, oranges, perfume and floral notes, wheat, and fruity malts. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, easy drinking.

Overall very much like the Galaxy version; ranking this slightly better as I like citra hops better and the extra tropical notes this one has. A great summer drinking beer, would love to get a few cans for the beach.

Thanks to Jmu500 for this one!
Pours a hazy sunset orange with a good head and drippy lace all around. Lasting unbroken surface skim.

Aroma is nice, tropical and fruity, light and airy.
Taste is a little more grainy and yeasty, with grassy hop and grapefruit, maybe some lesser mango. Light and airy, crisp and easy drinking. Nice stuff, well suited to warm summer weather.

Citrus, bready, balanced bitterness, orange, slightly watery, essentially what is now being called a session ipa

Blonde ale with a massive amount of hops. Reminds me of a watered down ipa. Very citrusy and fruity. I like it.

Hazy light peach color, light citrus and hop nose, tastes similar with a dry, smooth finish. Very drinkable but a little austere compared to other TH offerings.

I think this would be the 3rd or 4th I have had this brew over the years. Can brewed on the big new system.

A- Tallboy empties into my teku with a moderately hazy yellow-golden brew. The head is thick, frothy and white retaining well. Very thick clouds of lace at the top with large webs cascading from the base of that.

S- Mostly clean base from the yeast and pale cracker malts give the hops the stage. Toned back strength from the TH Pales and IPAs but still fresh tropical and citrus notes of mango, oranges, lime zest, papaya and slight passionfruit.

T- More to mention here as the malts and yeast base open up a lot compared to the aroma. Notes of yeast bread, cracker, cereal and cracked pale base grains. That being said it is still hop-centric with aforementioned tropical and citrus fruits coming to mind. Bubble gum, banana hint in the background; something I have noticed more in TH brews recently.

MF- Creamy and frothy consistency in a medium bodied Blonde Ale. Carbonation level is moderately high leading to a crisp and lightly bitter finish.

Light and sessionable brew packing plenty of hop flavors smoothed out with a pale grainy base. Not a pungent juice bomb but somewhat more balanced and appropriate for the style. Quaffable.

a nice change of pace to all the super hoppy beers I have been drinking as of late. This beer has great taste and goes down super smooth. Can absolutely drink these all day at the beach without batting an eye!

750ml bomber poured into a pint glass.

A: Very hazy. Sunny golden in color. Large-bubbled and rocky white head retains very well. Lacing is clumpy and sticky.

S: Overwhelmingly green and oily. Wet leaves, earthy, dank. Underripe mango. Herbal/peppery. Underlying ready and grainy malts.

T: Earthy, leafy, herbal/peppery, green and oily. These flavors soften as underripe mango comes to the forefront. Orange blossom. Kiwi. Malt contributes barebones, dry and crackery tastes. Quick, bone-dry finish of grainy malt and green, leafy hops.

M: Light bodied. Slight chewiness of feel. Carbonation cuts through sharply.

O: This is Citra in the raw. A simple and one-dimensional display, but that's more or less what the Eureka series is intended to be. Easily drinkable and very good.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a Tree House tulip glass. Purchased at the brewery last week.

Pours a light golden hazy body with a 2 finger white head that reduces slowly, leaving lacing and retention.

Big aromas of citrus and rind, grapefruit and fresh hops, slight tropical fruits. On the tongue this is more pale-ale like, with subtle fresh hoppy citrus and bright fruityness, not much of a bitter hop aftertaste which makes is very drinkable and refreshing. Nice body for a 4.1% beer.

This beer takes crushability to the absolute max. I could drink this all day. Delicious and refreshing.

This is a pretty good sessionable beer.

If Tree House ever gets to the point where they can product large batches of cans for retail sale, this beer will be one that makes a regular appearance at summer outings, eg. cookouts, camping trips, etc.

Eureka w/ Citra would also be a good introductory beer for those still dipping their toes into the craft beer scene.

This was given to me by a friend randomly met at brewery Cantillon. Awesome gift, I'm really thankful.
A: pours yellow / pale orange, with a nice head. The pour is trouble with many sediments floating around but this looks juicy.
S: The smell is the best part of it, fruity and a little bit resinous. Orange, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit, very tropical nose, some pine also, very focused on citra. Lovely.
T: The taste follows the nose but with herbal notes added to the mix.Some grass on the finish, quite resinous despite being light on the palate, Bitter aftertaste, a little bit cheesy yet on the back of the tongue. Very tasty.
M: Light and smooth, very refreshing.
O: Well crafted pale ale. Really fresh and thirst quenching. The nose is everything I like in pale ales from the US.

Poured from 16 oz. can into pint glass

A - Eureka pours a cloudy, straw-color. The white, fizzy head that forms leaves some nice lacing along the sides of the glass.

S - A fantastically fresh-smelling beer. Meyer lemon, summer flowers, tropical papaya, persimmon, and grass form a magnificent bouquet that wafts from the open can.

T - A dry cracker malt taste serves as the brief opening act for a monster wave of Citra-hop goodness. The tastes from the hops are very similar to the nose, but a bit heavier on the lemon and floral notes. An encore of the dry cracker malt segues into a mildly bitter fruity finish.

M - The mouthfeel is thin and dry - which is not surprising for the ABV. However, it does have a smooth creaminess to it that pleasantly distinguishes it from other lesser session beers. The carbonation is lively - serving to better effervesce the tropical smells and flavors.

O - The ultimate beach beer. I could happily kick several of these back on a hot summer day. The citrus flavors are so pungent it could almost pass for a drier version of a shandy (and I mean that in a good way). A bit of a peak into warmer times after a truly horrendous New England winter.

64 oz growler was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy golden yellow color with no vision of anything. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank too.

Smell: Juicy, tropical, grassy, citrus, herbal, biscuity, cracker, wheaty, and yeasty.

Taste: Same as above, but was expecting more juicy hop flavor. Still tastes good though. It's growing on me.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, mild bitterness, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice ABA. Very sessionable. Was expecting more hop flavor in the taste though, but still happy with it.
