BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Vivant

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Big, bold, and balanced, this double IPA is unlike most. We take an artistic Belgian approach to our beer. Our brewers sling some serious Citra hops into the kettle as you might expect, but we overlay that excessive hoppiness with Belgian candi sugar to add dimension to this beer. The result is a siege of hop flavor without the bitterness. Tree Bucket catapults out of the brewery once a year. Hoppy beers are not for cellaring. Find it, drink it, enjoy it now.

The color of this beer is lime green with a hint of honey lemon. The smell resembles citrus, spice, and lemon. It tastes like grapefruit and a spiced toffee. The texture is of malts and has a bitter mixture. Overall, it was okay, a bit too funky for me.

IPA usually has the highest Hops in it, and this beer has double IPA. Therefore this beer is by far the most bitter beer I have ever tasted. Really strong flavor with smooth texture. Really hard to drink.

One of the best double IPAs I have tried!!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and double IPAs are my favorite type of beers.
Unlike most double IPAs it is very refreshing not like others. Doesn't have that dirt taste that people can relate to double IPAs.
Slight amber and golden color
Aroma of pine and citrus along with hops
Really Well balanced taste

Golden color. Interesting tastes of grapefruit and something pine. A little bitter but amazing beer. Hoppy and earthy flavors. Would definitely order again but watch out for the ABV

Taste: I loved this beer! Usually double IPA is too bitter for me but I could drink more than one of these
great amount of hops and earth tones that balance this beer. Great finish

This has a nice caramel/amber color when poured. I smelled the hops and other citrus notes, seemed full flavored and very strong. The taste was not as strong as a double IPA normally is, very smooth to drink. Absolutely amazing, great amount of hops and earth tones. One of my favorites from Brewery Vivant.

This beer was very different for me, it almost had a pine taste. It was refreshing and smooth, reminded me of tropical weather, it was very sweet and easy to drink!

Tree Bucket was very refreshing, clean, and crisp with flavorful hop notes that weren't too overpowering. Even at 9% I found this beer easy to drink and definitely my favorite from Vivant.
