I tried this at the brewery. It poured a clear copper with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had tropical fruit notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with citrus presence. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

This beer was a nice surprise. Took a chance on a recommendation from my local BD. My "goto" IPA has been CCBC Jai Alai for a long time. The combo of the Motueka and Citra really make this IPA stand out to me. Rarely does an IPA as fragrant as this taste this good!!! It pours well, with an even cloudiness, and finely frothy head. First whiff brings in the tropics with pineapple, guava, star fruit and a hint of dank and pine. Flavor goes big on citrus notes, with hints of lime and mint... almost mojito-like... with just enough malt to balance out the bitter... to me at least. Very smooth mouth feel with fine carbonation. I LOVE it!

My only gripe is that its got a relatively high ABV... I could easily finish the 4 pack alone, but might be little further buzzed than I wanted to go.

If you like IPA's, this is a must try.

Phenomenal! Had on tap, two weeks ago at O’Connor’s Public House in New Milford, CT and it was so memorable, I’m submitting my first (non-technical) review.

Cloudy; apricot colored body; thin yet sticky and foamy head. Spicy aroma; some citrus but with a slight peppery quality. Grapefruit and lemon pith; mild cereal grain base; bold hop bitterness. Heavy body; soft and creamy; a bit warm; dry overall.

The Motueka and Citra hops certainly stand out with this beer. The balance and complexity are outstanding, especially with the taste, melding light malt grains with deeply robust hop character. A fine beer all around...

Overall a a vey good beer. Have had lots of treehouse beer recently so it’s hard to compare. I would say that this is a very good ipa. To the nose it it has a nice subtle fruity scent. Taste is where it really shines. Nice fruity citrus malty flavor but would say it is a bit muted but it is there. All in all would buy again. Totally legit ipa!!

Poured into a pint glass via can

Clear medium dark orange in color
Smell is light citrus and pine
Taste follows the nose, but flavor is slightly muted but the citra and motueka hops blend nicely and this drinks smooth and easy..almost like a session ipa with some kick..very nice!!

This is a super solid DDH NE IPA.
Great mouth feel, smooth and crushable. Very nice. Highly recommended.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a yellowish color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, mostly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A solid aroma of hops, citrus, tropical fruit, and malt.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a good shot of citrus fruit (lemon, orange), a decent amount of hops, a light grassy quality, and a bit of tropical fruit (mango, in particular). A very solid and focused flavor. This is one of those incredibly balanced (bitter and sweet) flavors that works quite well. Tasty stuff.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: While this isn't one of the most groundbreaking IPAs, it is likable. Definitely drinkable.
