Notes / Commercial Description:
In just a few short years, Tree House has made made a big impact on the beer scene with their approach to the IPA – low bitterness, intense juicy hop flavor and unfiltered haze. As fellow lovers of the IPA, we combined our styles – the classic American IPA malt body and the New England approach to hopping- resulting in lightly bitter, unfiltered beer with huge hop flavor.

Gold beer with sparse lacing and a thinly retained head. Smell is absolutely the best part. Strong, dank pine hops. Super resinous. Clearly the Tree House influence. Clean beer, goof resinous taste with a quick finish. Well executed bitterness. Dank making an appearence yet again. Grassy. Dry finish - makes ya thirsty but no bitterness left in the finish. Just a dank resin on the tongue. Classic NE IPA, well executed hops.

Look: It pours golden and is fairly clear. It has a large, slightly off white head. Head retention is good.

Smell: There is a definitive rich malt backbone with citrus aromas.

Flavors: There is also a low level of peach. It has a bready malt backbone. The citrus flavors and balance with moderate peach.

Feel: It has a moderate body and is smooth. There is a low level of bitterness for an ipa and is easy drinking.

Overall, this is an easy drinking IPA with plenty of citrus and peach flavors balance with a bready backbone.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Cloudy golden copper pour. Thick white head leaves outstanding lacing.

S: Dank and tropical. Grapefruit, pineapple, and pine sap.. smells delicious.

T/F: Light malts give way to a wonderful unfiltered tropical hop profile. Lots of grapefruit and fruit... juicy... pineapple and tangerine. Some nice resinous flavor as well. Finish is bitter and tropical. Medium in body and sticky on the tongue.

O: An outstanding beer... and the influence of both brewers is present. A great tasting IPA that I wish was available as a standalone.

From notes: 16oz can poured into a snifter. Good amount of haze, golden colored. Nose pops with tropical hops- orange juice, lemon, quince, under ripe mango. Slight grassy/earthy undertones. Malt body brings a balancing shortbread and toast sort of impression. Taste follows smell. Really solid brew, and delivers exactly as advertised- the 'New England style' hopping of Tree House combined with a more traditional west coast IPA malt bill.

Pours a cloudy gold color. One inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong floral hops, slight citrus hops, slight spicy hops, resin, alcohol, and slight sweet malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level and only slight bitterness. Tastes of strong floral hops, slight citrus hops, slight spicy hops, resin, alcohol, hint of yeast, hint of earthiness, and slight sweet malt. Overall, average appearance, but good aroma, body, blend, and complexity.
