Picked up at the brewery yesterday.

After popping the top it somehow started to come up the neck and over the top, so I had to pour quickly and spilled a little... anyways, pours a nice frothy bubbly thick 2 finger head that sticks to the sides of the glass like marshmallow, a hazy dark amber copper color.

Nose starts with some fresh hops, a bit earthy, little spicy, light pine, fruity almost stone fruit like, and even a bit floral, plenty of amber reddish malts in the background, little sweet, hint caramel toastiness, coppery malts mostly, with a faint citrus to go along with all that.

Taste brings more fruity hops to start, syrupy sweet malts, almost candy like with copper malts, caramel syrup, little sticky sweetness, little toasty malt flavor too, but mostly an amber malt profile. Hops bring a hint of citrus and pine, some earthy, chewy like hops but never spicy, but nice overall bitterness. Hops also bring a fruity flavor that hints at bubblegum. Finish is long bitterness, not overly bitter, nice fruity bubblegum hops, hint of citrus and even tropical fruit, chewy malts, as well as plenty of amber toasty malts, little sticky sweet but drier, and slight earthy hop profile to go with it all.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, decent carb, faint hint of warming booze but barely.

Overall not bad, a decent hop profile, nice malt profile, nice balance, just enough hint of warming booze, a nice bitterness, tasty... but not necessarily my fav beer, esp from tree house, just a tasty beer.

My wife went to western MA and all I got was this growler. And a hat. And another growler.

Dark amber to muddy brown. Opaque but in a bulbous chalice so who knows. Sloppy foam schlacked up and down my glass like a layer cake.

Bright, flowery lemon citrus aroma. Dry grass and dare I say hay? Musty.

Nice and resiny. Dry and must and resiny makes this a tongue smacker. Citrus hops aplenty. Perfect amount of bitter. As great as the hops are I'm not getting much in the malt department.

The lack of discernible malt brings kinda bugs me but I kinda like it. Between the dry must and the high abv. but low malt (I'm guessing a lot sugar was used?) gives this beer a Belgian feel. Like a big, bad-ass hoppy Palm.

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB glass pours with a 1/2" beige head, over the cloudy reddish amber brew. Head gradually falls to an uneven layer of bubbles, with lingering lace. Aroma is citrus and toasted grains.

Taste is sweet to start, citrus bang in the middle, with some pine hops character coming in for the close. Mouthfeel is soft over the tongue and very smooth, and drinkability is nice. Would enjoying visiting this Ma again, as I would my own grandmother, who was also a Ma to us all.
